What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of a group of chemicals called cannabinoids. This compound is naturally derived from two plants: hemp and Cannabis sativa (marijuana).
Unlike the related compound THC, CBD does not produce the psychoactive effects commonly associated with a marijuana "high." However, CBD is a potent chemical that research shows may have many beneficial effects on the mind and body.
