Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring, non-addictive, and non-psychoactive compound found in hemp. CBD is one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids found in hemp, which endow the plant with its therapeutic profile.

Unlike THC, another well-known phytocannabinoid in cannabis, CBD does not make a person feel “high” or intoxicated. The therapeutic benefits of CBD are being tested and confirmed by researchers today. As detailed on our Hemp Science resource, the research to date indicates CBD can help with pain, inflammation, sleep, and neurological conditions.
