What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid derived from Cannabis species. CBD does not have psychoactive activity, but has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antineoplastic and chemopreventive activities. CBD is one of over 140 compounds found in cannabis called phytocannabinoids. CBD is non-psychoactive due to its lack of affinity for CB1 receptors, which are found in high concentrations in the brain, and which are responsible for the psychoactive effects of THC.
