CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the many chemicals found in cannabis. Unlike tetrhydrocannbinol (THC), the other notorious and notable chemical compound found in cannabis, CBD does not have a psychoactive effect. In other words, it doesn’t get you high, but it does effectively relieve a wide range of medical conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and more.
One of the most commonly available and easily accessible forms of CBD is CBD oil. CBD oil is a concentrated extract from the cannabis family of plants that contains much higher amounts of CBD than THC.
