Cannabidiol also known as CBD is a non-intoxicating & non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid found in the Cannabis Sativa plant.

There are over 111+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and CBD is one of the two most abundant naturally occurring cannabinoids found. The other most abundant cannabinoid is the more widely known THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).

The properties of these two cannabinoids differ in the way that THC is the cannabinoid that is responsible for the intoxicating and psychoactive effects that a user experiences when administering marijuana (cannabis), known as getting stoned or high. Whereas CBD is not psychoactive and produces no 'high'.

CBD has been vastly researched and well documented and thought to have huge therapeutic potential. CBD is known for a wide range of different applications such as oils, cosmetics, vape liquids, food products and more.
