Cannabidiol or CBD is just one of the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Hemp plants are defined by the USDA as having less than 0.3% THC yet are generally very high in other cannabinoids like CBD.
In the 1990s, the human endocannabinoid system was discovered. Cannabinoids in hemp affect this system in multiple ways.
Studies show CBD works with the human endocannabinoid system [ECS] to regulate multiple body functions. Cannabidiol does this without leaving the user feeling "high" like THC. To read more about studies concerning CBD, visit the links below.
