What is CBD?

CBD is a compound that is short for cannabidiol. CBD is not a drug (in the traditional sense), and comes from the hemp plant. CBD can be extracted from the hemp plant in several different ways, but the goal of extraction is to turn CBD into a product that can be used by humans or animals. CBD has been deemed to be safe by the World Health Organization, where in their report they found that the potential for addition was virtually non-existent, and that it is generally well-tolerated in humans.
