How is cannabidiol “CBD” different from marijuana?
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is the second most abundant compound found in cannabis. Although it is a key ingredient in medical marijuana, CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, which is related to marijuana. Unlike other components of marijuana, CBD does not produce a psychoactive effect. It has been found that CBD does not pose any risk of abuse or addiction in humans. Furthermore, there is currently no evidence suggesting any public health issues linked to the consumption of pure CBD.”
