What is a cannabidiol?

A cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound that comes from the leaves, stalks, and flowers of the industrial hemp or marijuana cannabis. It is the most widely accepted non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis sativa plant. Hemp-based CBD extracts should not be confused with CBD from the marijuana, even though they both derive from the same plant-all of CBD oil products contain CBD extracted from industrial hemp.

A system within the human body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has receptors that these compounds fit into, using cannabinoids to support cells and healthy immune system function, despite fluctuations in our external environment.
