CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring phytocannabinoid found in hemp. Depending on the specific variety of hemp, CBD can make up most of the plant's phytocannabinoid. However, it is just one of dozens of different cannabinoids and phytochemicals found in hemp. Nevertheless, in such formulations, CBD is usually present in the highest concentration. This makes it one of the most famous and popular compounds. CBD is a non-toxic component of hemp that has many positive properties. It does not intoxicate (make you “high”), unlike THC. Our bodies are made up of an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that uses naturally occurring endocannabinoids to maintain health and homeostasis. As a phytocannabinoid, CBD interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system and provides a sense of balance and well-being.
