What Is CBD?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants, also known as cannabis plants. 

It's a naturally occurring substance used in products such as oil to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm and is non-intoxicating.  Its cousin, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive and found in marijuana.

There are three terms you may be familiar with - cannabis, marijuana and hemp.  And it can get very confusing, so we will break it down:

Cannabis or cannabis sativa is the actual name of the plant.  It has two primary species - hemp and marijuana.  Both of these contain CBD, but there is a higher percentage of CBD in hemp which has little (less than 0.3%) to no levels of THC compared to marijuana.

CBD oil is a natural oil which is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant. People use it for a variety of purposes and have even started using it on their pets.
