What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of dozens of non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Cannabinoids are characterized by their ability to act on cannabinoid receptors that are found throughout the body. CBD is a naturally occurring compound that is non-toxic and non-itoxicating which makes it ideal for people seeking the health benefits of cannabinoids without the mind altering effects of medical marijuana.
