CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive, natural compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant, which has two primary species, hemp and marijuana. There is a higher CBD percentage in hemp, which also has very low (less than 0.3%) levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compared to marijuana. THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis that causes the sensation of getting “high” that is often associates with marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD won’t make you “high”.
This makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant and diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut oil.
Its super power? It engages our bodies' internal cannabinoid receptors. These natural receptors regulate our pain sensitivity, our moods, and our appetites, and achieve balance in the body.
Thanks to the high demand for CBD as a natural, non-harmful aid to ease stressful imbalances, many CBD products are available today. Oils and tinctures stand out for their ability to be measured in precise doses.
