This article refers to Hemp Based Cannabidiol CBD
Cannabidiol CBD is just one of the cannabinoids of the Cannabis Sativa plants. CBD (it’s just easier to say CBD than cannabidiol) makes up about 40% of the cannabis hemp plant, along with about 100 other cannabinoids. CBD Products are either FULL SPECTRUM, using the whole hemp plant, which works in a synergistic way in the body. Full spectrum CBD uses all the cannabinoids (more than just cannabidiol) and is often referred to as “CBD Oil”. There is also an extraction of just pure cannabidiol a.k.a an ISOLATE.
What is Cannabidiol CBD?
The chemical compound CBD has a relaxing effect when ingested into the body. This is not to be confused with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is psychoactive and gives many people the ““high” associated with smoking marijuana.

The benefits of CBD are vast including helping to improve the immune system, reduce inflammation in the body, anxiety relief, pain relief, help with seizures and more without any known side effects.
