A Starter's Guide to Understanding Cannabidiol

What is CBD? Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is a phytocannabinoid found in agricultural hemp. Phytocannabinoids are any cannabinoid that occurs naturally within the cannabis family of plants. The two most well known phytocannabinoids are psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD. THC vs. CBD? Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive.
