For the uninitiated, CBD (which is abbreviated from Cannabidiol) has become somewhat of a wellness darling. People claim will chill you out, relieve your pain, and do, like, a million other things.
CBD is one of the many naturally occurring compounds in the hemp plant. THC — AKA, the main psychoactive compound found in hemp that most people think of when they think of cannabis — is another one. Unlike medical marijuana products (which are derived from plants with high concentrations of THC), CBD oil is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp. Meaning, CBD might provide benefits like relieving your pain or chilling you out — but you don't have to worry about it getting you high. If you want more info before diving into trying it for yourself, here's even more information about CBD.
