With around a quarter of a million people in the UK now using cannabidiol (CBD) oil, the legal cannabinoid has rapidly become a phenomenon. CBD is one of around 80 chemical cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa plants, with the extracted oil being used in various CBD-based products, including creams, edibles, and tinctures.
First, let’s be clear: Cannabis, Hemp and Marijuana are NOT the same thing. CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a compound cannabinoid found mainly in the leaves and flowers of the Hemp plant. Its one of many cannabinoids found in Hemp. Unlike CBD's cousin THC it does not produce a euphoric 'high' or change someones state of mind.
