Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring constituent of cannabis sativa (industrial hemp) plants. CBD is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and it is scientifically studied for many reasons. Most people have heard of THC, which is also a cannabinoid present in cannabis. THC is known for causing a “high” in users. Unlike THC, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that does not promote psychoactive effects or create a high.
CBD Oil derived from industrial hemp does not contain more than 0.3% THC so consumers won’t feel the “high” that is commonly associated with this cannabinoid when consuming CBD Oil.
While CBD Oil may just contain Cannabidiol, it can also include other beneficial cannabinoids (like THC), terpenes and flavonoids—depending on the full, broad or pure spectrum of hemp compounds in the CBD Oil.
