What is Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. It does not produce intoxication or the “high” that is caused by the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Simply put, cannabis oil is the concentrated liquid extract of the marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa. Cannabis plants produce thousands of compounds but the most well recognized belong to a class called cannabinoids. Unlike THC, CBD isn’t known to cause psychoactive effects, and is therefore attractive to those who want to avoid the high but who want to capture the positive benefits of the Cannabidiol.
