What compounds are in CBD aka cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol or CBD, is a naturally occurring compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant. It is one of over 100 different cannabinoids identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not cause the “high” typically associated with the use of marijuana.
CBD is often extracted from hemp, a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant that contains very low levels of THC, the compound responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive effects. CBD products typically contain other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other beneficial compounds found in hemp.
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the human body, which plays a role in regulating a variety of physiological processes including pain perception, appetite, mood, and immune function. CBD is known to interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the ECS and thus it potentially helps to reduce inflammation, anxiety, and other conditions.

CBD can be consumed in many forms, including capsules, tinctures, topical, and edibles, and it can be ingested, inhaled, or applied topically. CBD products may also be made from hemp extract oil or hemp seed oil, with different concentrations of CBD.
It’s important to note that the concentration of CBD vary in different products and also in different countries and regions, depending on the laws and regulations.
