The cannabidiol is a popular natural remedy used to treat many common ailments. Better known as CBD, it is one of more than 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, causing the "high" sensation often associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
This quality makes CBD an attractive option for those seeking relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical medications. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant and then diluting it with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or hemp seeds. This oil is gaining popularity in the world of health and wellness, and there are already some scientific studies confirming that it can relieve symptoms of ailments such as chronic pain and anxiety.
