CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis sativa plant. CBD is primarily derived from hemp, but also found in the marijuana plant. While CBD and THC are in the same cannabinoid family, they are distant cousins in respects to their effects.
The most distinct difference being that CBD is non-intoxicating, meaning it doesn't have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity and doesn't cause the "high" associated with marijuana.
Known for its therapeutic and soothing effects, and offering a myriad of benefits, CBD interacts within the human endocannabinoid system, which regulates functions in the body to create balance and help reach homeostasis. CBD has shown to be an effective, natural remedy for everyday life.
