What is CBD?

Unlike cannabis and medical marijuana, CBD is non psychotropic, non psychoactive, and does not produce a “high.” While it can be found in the buds and flowers of marijuana plants, hemp-derived CBD is extracted from the stalks and stems of hemp plants.

Cannabidiol(CBD) is a cannabinoid that’s become increasingly popular since hemp was federally legalized. Many people use CBD products because CBD is said to have numerous health benefits.

CBD is found in some amount in all cannabis plants. That means it can be derived from either hemp or marijuana.

However, CBD products are only federally legal if they’re derived from hemp and contain less than 0.3 percent THC.
