Known for its medicinal use, CBD has grown in popularity and is becoming increasingly accepted as a beneficial healthcare alternative to relieve pain, anxiety, and aid in digestion. Because CBD is derived from the hemp and cannabis plants, many people believe that it has the same intoxicating effect as marijuana.
However, CBD is extracted from a certain type of cannabis plant, the hemp plant, which contains less than 0.3 percent of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Unlike THC, CBD does not have the properties needed for a psychoactive effect.
CBD has been known to help with a wide variety of ailments and issues including epilepsy, fatigue and soreness, anxiety, tension, and much more.
