CBD (canabidiol) is one of the 100 or so phytocannabinoids from the hemp plant, and is one of the most well known and studied for its amazing healing properties. Virtually free of psychoactive THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), these compounds, including CBD, have shown to affect the brain and body in very positive ways without any mind altering effects. 

We must be clear--we are NOT talking about marijuana. Although CBD (derived from industrial hemp) and marijuana originate from Cannabis sativa, the plants are very different. Hemp oil is from industrial hemp plants selected to be low in THC (0.3% or less), while medical and recreational marijuana is from plants selected for increased THC content, the compound that causes a "high". By law, hemp oil cannot contain any significant amounts of THC. 

In 1992, scientists discovered the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) contains receptors for cannabinoids that basically affect every organ and system in the body. The ECS system modulates our mood, appetite, energy, immune system, hormones, brain chemistry, sleep, metabolism and overall well being. According to a study in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, CBD is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-seizure, anti-nausea, and anti-psychotic compound.
