CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in the cannabis plant. It is one of the many compounds, known as cannabinoids, that are found in the plant. Unlike THC, the compound that causes the “high” associated with marijuana use, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not affect a person’s mental state or cause them to feel “high.”
CBD is believed to have a number of potential health benefits, including reducing pain and inflammation, improving symptoms of anxiety and depression, and even reducing the frequency and severity of seizures in people with certain types of epilepsy.
CBD can be consumed in a variety of forms, including oil, capsules, and even gummies. It can also be applied topically as a cream or lotion.
It’s important to note that the legality of CBD can vary from state to state, and that more research is needed to fully understand its effects and potential benefits.
