What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is the second most prominent compound in cannabis. The cannabis plant contains many different cannabinoids, we have seen over 80 different and it seems there are many more. Most people have heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users high.
Will it get me high
NO! CBD(cannabidiol) is non psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause a high. CBD has antipsychotic effects which means CBD works different than THC.
Is CBD Legal?
The FDA of the United States considers hemp oil (and it's derivative CBD) to be a dietary supplement (not a medication), since they are made from industrial hemp plants. If you live in the US, this means you don't need a prescription and can legally purchase and consume Cannabidiol in any state.
