CBD (short for cannabidiol) is an active compound in the Cannabis sativa L plant, which consists of two major strains: hemp and marijuana. Marijuana, of course, is the strain that’s most commonly associated with “getting high,” but this is due to its high levels of THC, not CBD (CBD does not get you high).

Hemp, on the other hand, contains high levels of CBD and relatively negligible levels of THC. In fact, in order to be considered hemp, a cannabis plant must have a THC content of 0.3% or less. Most CBD products (oils, edibles, topicals, etc) come from industrial hemp plants, which are considered to be legal because they are not psychoactive.

On a physiological level, CBD functions by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a 100% natural and endogenous network of cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors in the human body. The ECS has been found to exist in nearly every cell type, which explains its seemingly never-ending list of therapeutic remedies. In fact, it’s has been clinically proven to treat everything from anxiety and depression to seizures and chronic arthritis.
