CBD (Cannabidiol)

CBD/CBD Oil, is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is just one of many cannabinoids. Essentially, cannabinoids are chemical compounds that are naturally produced and found within the cannabis plant (even in humans and animals). In the cannabis plant, there are roughly 113 different cannabinoids. The most commonly known are CBD, THC, THCA, CBN and CBG.

CBD is a well-known cannabinoid, however, it is not psychoactive. This means that it will not make the user experience the high sensation that is associated with cannabis users. The medical industry has been keeping a close eye on CBD as it has shown some promising therapeutic effects and is believed to hold medical values.

In the cannabis plant, CBD has the opposite effect of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol, which is a psychoactive compound of the plant). While THCs effects are powerful, CBDs effects are placid and can actually counteract THC. In other words, THC can give you a feeling of euphoria and CBD effectively calms you down.

Studies are currently being conducted around CBD throughout the world.  The research being examined is indicating that CBD has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, which has been seen as a useful method in treating illnesses.
