CBD is one of the 104 chemicals known as cannabinoids that are found in cannabis, or the marijuana plant, Cannabis Sativa (1Trusted source).
Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC (the main psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis), causes the “high” feeling that is often associated with marijuana. CBD, however, is not psychoactive like THC.
CBD oil is obtained by extracting CBD from cannabis plants and then blending it with carrier oils like coconut oil or hemp seed oil.
It is gaining popularity in the world of health and wellness.
