Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most prominent cannabinoid found in hemp and cannabis. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds naturally occurring in the cannabis plant family. Unlike the most prominent cannabinoid known as THC, CBD is not psychoactive, meaning it does not affect your cognitive function or give you a ‘high’ which cannabis is so widely associated with. Instead, it offers a natural way to relieve pain, fight symptoms of anxiety in a safe and legal way.
