What is CBD (or Cannabidiol)?
CBD is a phytocannabinoid, a molecule found in the plant Cannabis Sativa, also known as Hemp. The peculiarity of CBD is that it contains very little THC, a euphoric substance. You can read more here about CBD.
In fact, CBD and THC are two molecules from the same plant but they are not used for the same reasons. For the therapeutic and illicit uses, it is the extracts of Cannabis having a high concentration of THC which are chosen (Marijuana). As for CBD, it is obtained with a very low level of THC, less than 0.2% as against 15% in the plant cultivated for recreational purposes. This gives the CBD many therapeutic virtues, on which serious studies have been conducted, without causing addiction. CBD is used in various sectors (food industry, cosmetics) in human health and more and more in animal health. It is often marketed in the form of oil.
