Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non psychoactive compound found in cannabis plant.
Considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs in traditional Chinese medicine, Cannabis derivatives have been used for medicinal purpose starting more than 10,000 years ago.
CBD is derived from hemp plant – a variety of cannabis plant with less than 0.3 percent THC. Due to the low concentration of THC, CBD doesn’t give the high associated with regular cannabis. Instead, it gives more of a calm, relaxed and therapeutic feel.
CBD interacts naturally with the endocannabinoid system thus offering a viable alternative to pharmaceutical drugs.
Due to the various benefits, CBD is considered an essential oil for back pain, an essential oil for knee pain as well as an essential oil for joint pain.
