CBD or cannabidiol is the main active compound in hemp and unlike THC, it is not psychoactive, so it doesn't make people high. As you may know, inside the human body there's the endocannabinoid system, with receptors spread throughout the brain and body.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is becoming increasingly popular amongst the masses for having a wide scope of medicinal benefits – due to clinical reports and mounds of test data showing little to no side effects and a lack of psychoactivity (typically associated with marijuana products and high THC). Cannabidiol (CBD) is not only a major phytocannabinoid, it is the most concentrated form from the cannabis plant.
