Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is one of the active ingredients in the cannabis or medical hemp plants. CBD oil is also sometimes known as hemp extract oil. As mentioned earlier, CBD occurs in the flowers, leaves, and stalks of the hemp plant. This means that in order to have CBD oil the product must be produced from that part of the plant. While CBD is a component of the hemp plant, by itself it has no psychoactive effects that cause a “high” because it does not contain any THC.
CBD oil has been shown to have many positive benefits for those dealing with pain, inflammation, anxiety and depression, cancer-related symptoms, neurological disorders, heart and vascular disorders, diabetes, substance abuse, skin conditions such as acne, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and much more.
The human body has an endocannabinoid system that receives transmission signals from endocannabinoids in the body. CBD produces many beneficial effects on the human molecular pathway. As a matter of fact, there are more than 65 molecular targets of CBD in the body. A CBD-rich product with little THC can convey many benefits without having a euphoric or dysphoric effect. In order for CBD to work properly, CBD should be the main substance in any CBD product that you purchase.
