What is CBD?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a chemical compound that naturally comes from Cannabis Sativa. One of the many chemical compounds, classified as phytocannabinoids (phyto-plant), provides various benefits.
Although CBD is present in marijuana, it is most commonly extracted from industrial hemp. Industrial hemp is a plant that produces a higher CBD content and a lower content of THC (0.3% or less delta 9 THC). This helps to provide all the benefits of cannabis without the individual becoming “high.”
CBD is psychoactive, because it affects the brain but does not make one feel “high” unlike its cousin THC (tetrahydrocannabinol.)
CBD, through various lab studies, has shown to be have tremendous benefits for skincare, including, anti-inflammatory properties, pain benefits, help with arthritis, help against certain skin disorders, and even helping with healing wounds.
