What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is found naturally throughout the flowers, seeds, and stalks of cannabis plants – including hemp and marijuana. Unlike many of the 85+ cannabinoids – compounds found in cannabis – CBD occurs in significant quantities in cannabis, so it is easily extracted from the hemp plant for use in daily CBD hemp oil supplements. Cannabidiol is the most exciting cannabinoid currently available due to its numerous potential benefits and legal status in the U.S. and in 40 countries internationally.
Medical research has shown that cannabidiol is not psychoactive in the same way as THC – the well-known high inducing molecule found in marijuana. This non-intoxication makes CBD safe for use by everyone (including your furry friends), regardless of age. We know that CBD, like other cannabinoids, interacts with the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for creating homeostasis within the body by promoting balance among functions like appetite, sleep, and immune response, for example.
