While it has been around for thousands of years, the compound was only officially discovered in 1940. Now, some 80 years later, it is legalized across the world and in many US states as well. Researchers have found plenty of evidence to suggest it possess medicinal value and for a variety of illnesses and conditions. As of right now, many of those studies are animal-based, but that hasn’t stopped Americans from jumping on board with 1 in 7 admitting they actively use or have tried CBD products.
CBD comes from the Cannabis Sativa plant. It does not contain THC so using the product won’t leave you with an unwanted buzz as it comes from the hemp plant. In terms of the whole plant, CBD is the second most active compound found in the plant. The plant it comes from is simply the marijuana plant’s cousin. While some people use the terms marijuana and hemp interchangeably, the fact of the matter is they are different plants entirely, therefore they contain different compounds. They have different purposes, they look different, and their oils do a different job, too!
There is much to learn when it comes to CBD, what it is, and what it does. The marijuana plant is a small, stocky, blooming plant with a pungent odor. The hemp plant is tall and lanky, incredibly durable, and just happens to be one of the oldest known plants. You can even eat the seeds.
