Cannabidiol (CBD) oil and other CBD products have become increasingly popular with consumers looking for an alternative treatment for a range of ailments, conditions, and diseases.
Cannabis plants contain a group of substances called cannabinoids. Although there are more than 100 cannabinoids, the two most studied cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD.
THC is a psychoactive compound that is responsible for most of the psychological effects and the high that people often associate with marijuana. CBD is not psychoactive in the same way.
While THC does have psychoactive effects, it does not lead to high or euphoric feelings, and other such effects associated with recreational cannabis smoking.
