Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major phytocannabinoid naturally occurring in the cannabis plant, accounting for a large portion of its cannabinoid content.
Although CBD can affect body processes through its interaction with the endocannabinoid system, it does not produce psychoactive effects.

AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES

Other pre-clinical studies sponsored by the National Institutes of Health are also looking at the role of cannabis in relieving symptoms caused by:
Multiple Sclerosis-related pain
Spinal cord injuries
Several studies have examined the benefits of CBD for a variety of health conditions including:
epilepsy and other seizure disorders
cluster and other headaches
post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
allergies or asthma
Can you get high from CBD?
The short answer is no.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the most common active phytocannabinoid found in cannabis and it is primarily responsible for the psychoactive effects or “high” experienced after cannabis consumption.
While cannabis products containing THC will have psychoactive effects, CBD alone is non-psychoactive and will not produce the same intoxicating effects when isolated from the cannabis plant.
What is the difference between full-spectrum Hemp and CBD?
Full-spectrum hemp products contain CBD, THC, and several other cannabinoids.
CBD products, however, are made by isolating the CBD content from the cannabis plant, removing THC and other cannabinoids.
Side Effects &
Although CBD is generally considered safe and few people experience side effects, some reported side effects associated with CBD use include fatigue, diarrhea, and changes in appetite and weight.
It is important to note, however, that many of these adverse effects occur only when CBD is taken in doses higher than those generally available over-the-counter.
