Cannabidiol (CBD oil) is an oil derived from the cannabis plant. It’s one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.
Until recently, THC was the best-known compound in cannabis. It is the most active constituent, and it has a psychological effect. It creates a mind-altering “high” when a person smokes it or uses it in cooking. This is because THC breaks down when a person applies heat and introduces it into the body.
CBD, in contrast, is NOT psychoactive. So it doesn’t change a person’s mental state when they use it. However, it may produce significant changes in the body.
CBD or cannabidiol oil is growing increasingly popular around the globe at the moment. There are of course many different reasons for this, but primarily people are interested in CBD oil and CBD in general for the potential health benefits it offers.
There is currently intensive research into CBD and the results have been extremely positive so far. Amongst many other things CBD oil has been found to be beneficial for the following:
- Chronic Pain relief
- Reducing Anxiety and depression
