What is CBD?
CBD, whose full name is cannabidiol, is one of the useful components of hemp, which does NOT have a psychoactive effect like the other component, also extracted from hemp, THC (tetrahydro-cannabinoid). CBD is extracted from hemp flowers and purified from unwanted components using special processes. Thus, the effect is completely safe, we don’t have to worry about intoxication or the development of addiction!
There is a huge amount of research (about 23,000 published papers!) on the effects of CBD on laboratory animals and humans. Success stories abound of pets overcoming anxiety or reducing/shortening their epileptic seizures with the help of CBD.
