Cannabdiol is a compound found in marijuana. CBD can be derived from hemp or non-hemp plants. Hemp is defined as any part of the cannabis sativa plant with no more than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the mind-altering substance in marijuana.
CBD interacts with neuroreceptors in your endocannabinoid system, which sends signals between your cells to help regulate your movement, mood, homeostasis and immune system.
CBD is often extracted from the cannabis sativa plant in oil form and mixed with a carrier oil like hemp seed oil for consumption. CBD supplements are also available as gummies or other edibles, capsules, tinctures, lotions and serums.
According to studies, CBD oil could benefit your health by offsetting anxiety and depression, treating epileptic seizures, reducing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), treatment for people who are dependent on opioids, reducing amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) symptoms, relieving unmanageable pain, easing diabetic complications, protection against neurological disease and inhibits arthritis symptoms.
