What is CBD & Its Benefits? Know the Health Benefits That CBD Provides
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD is a widely used natural remedy for many regular ailments. CBD is one of more than 100 synthetic compounds known as cannabinoids present in cannabis or marijuana plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the cannabinoid most associated with psychotropic (mind-altering) effects, whereas CBD (cannabidiol) does not produce a “high”.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is often available in the
form of CBD oil. CBD is a well-known botanical extract from the Cannabis Sativa
plant (particularly industrial hemp variety). Aside from CBD oil, CBD can also
be found in crystalline isolate, full spectrum extract, and CBD distillate
form. Also, 98% pure CBD is available as a US FDA approved drug product
indicated for two rare forms of pediatric refractory epilepsy. While available
research is limited on CBD benefits, many proposed benefits of CBD oil and
other CBD extracts are widely promoted.
