CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is one of well over a hundred different Phyto-cannabinoids, which are chemical compounds produced by the Cannabis plant. CBD, unlike THC, the best known of the Phyto-cannabinoids, has no psychoactive effects; this means that using it does not make you high.
CBD is now rivalling THC, having become well known as having potential for significant health benefits, without the psychotropic consequences of using THC. CBD is appreciated for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, muscle relaxant, analgesic, antiemetic, anti-anxiety properties, and anticonvulsant effects. These are currently being researched by the Medical Community. Numerous studies suggest that CBD also acts to reduce the intoxicating effects of THC, such as memory impairment, and paranoia.
