CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, a naturally-occurring cannabinoid component found in cannabis that comprises up to 40% of the plant. Cannabidiol is “a cannabinoid devoid of psychoactive effect.” After THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is by-far the most studied natural cannabinoid. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
CBD is a natural constituent of hemp that has been shown to have positive health benefits, but does not cause any psychoactive effects. Until recently, the public was unable to purchase CBD products due to marijuana prohibition. CBD-rich hemp provides a legal alternative to medical marijuana and allows the consumer to enjoy CBD without the risk of getting high. CBD got its first major national exposure thanks to Dr. Sanjay Gupta and his documentary produced by CNN.
Since CBD has no psychoactive effect, it is an excellent option for people seeking the benefits of cannabis products who do not wish to break federal law or risk impairment. The US Government patented CBD over a decade ago for its anti-oxidant and neuro-protective properties.
Respected doctors, such as Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Dr. Mehmet Oz, along with many others in the medical community, have been extremely vocal about their support for medical cannabis.
Even though all hemp is non-psychoactive, not all hemp plants are federally legal. In order for legal CBD products to be produced, it must be derived from an imported industrial hemp plant. Once the product is manufactured, it must pass through customs for a final check.
