CBD (cannabidiol) has become a widely popular derivative of the hemp plant (cannabis). To hugely oversimplify it: when you smoke cannabis, you are feeling the effects of two main cannabinoids. THC is the psychoactive component-- the part that makes you "high." CBD is the more understated and bodily component, providing potential pain and anxiety relief, among many others.
THC is why cannabis is illegal on the federal level. CBD, on the other hand, is completely legal in all 50 states. CBD does not get you high. That is a common misconception. Its effects are subtle, non-intrusive, and work in the background.
In other words, it may relieve pain, reduce inflammation, soothe muscle soreness, improve mood, calm anxiety, heighten cognition, and much more-- without any psychoactive effects.
Those who take CBD will tell you the only thing you will feel is that your symptoms are relieved. Don't expect a "buzz." Expect relief.
CBD is derived from "hemp." Hemp is not the same as marijuana. To the untrained eye, the two plants look nearly the same. Both are considered cannabis-- but their morphology, chemical makeup, and uses are very different. Hemp is a strain specifically grown mostly devoid of the intoxicating compounds found in marijuana.
You will often see the phrase "industrial hemp," and that's because hemp can be used to make a variety of industrial products. Paper, textiles, clothing, shoes, food, rope, bioplastics, insulation, and biofuel can all be made with hemp.
Hemp's versatility is pretty miraculous. And given that it is totally legal in the US, these uses can all be explored to their fullest potential with complete legal compliance. This also means that it can be fully and comprehensively regulated.
Therefore, when you buy a product infused with CBD, you can rest assured that a reputable third party has regulated it for safety, purity, and potency.

CBD is regarded as one of the most natural and safe remedies for the mind and body. It is completely non-addictive, non-habit-forming, and works naturally in your body to provide non-intrusive and potentially comprehensive relief.
You can take CBD in many forms, such as:
CBD Oils / Tinctures: Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical found in the cannabis Sativa plant. CBD oil is directly extracted from the cannabis Sativa plant through CO2 extraction that is mixed with a carrier oil like MCT oil (coconut-based) or hemp seed oil. The cannabis Sativa plant has many chemical compounds including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the compound responsible for the psychoactive effects. CBD however does not have any psychoactive effects, instead it retains all the beneficial properties of the plant. CBD in the form of oil is by far the most popular way that CBD can be used or consumed. However, CBD has expanded and can also be found in the form of topicals, capsules, and edibles (ex. gummies).
CBD Gummies: CBD Gummies are edibles infused with cannabidiol(CBD). CBD is an extract of the hemp plant, a non-intoxicating breed of cannabis. It's one of a multitude of cannabinoids, naturally occurring compounds in cannabis that interact with the human nervous system, often with beneficial effects. Unlike other forms of CBD, CBD Gummies are the tastiest of them all. Users will find CBD Gummies to be the easiest addition to their daily routine.
CBD Capsules: In short, CBD capsules are pills taken orally and contain cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, and CBN. They have become extremely popular because they are easy, quick, and tasteless. They are sold in many different strengths and capacities. CBD Capsules are usually sold as soft gels or hard gels. When compared to CBD oil, you'll find capsules to be easy to add to your routine but still offer the same effect. Brands like Medterra, cbdMD, and many more test their CBD Capsules in a third-party laboratory. Brands have taken it a step further by introducing ingredients like caffeine and melatonin.
