CBD - or cannabidiol - is a compound derived from cannabis and hemp plants. After extraction, CBD is mixed with a carrier oil such as coconut or hemp which is how it is delivered to us. If you are in the market for CBD, remember that you get what you pay for. Don’t always opt for the least expensive oil and try to choose a product that is organic.
Because it does not contain THC - or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol - it does not have the psychoactive effects that marijuana does. This is why it is growing in popularity as a treatment or remedy for various health ailments. CBD is known to relieve chronic pain, depression and anxiety. It can also potentially aid with cancer and cancer-treatment related symptoms such as nausea and loss of appetite and is thought to contribute to cardiac health and prevent diabetes.
