What is Hemp Oil?
CBD stands for “cannabidiol” and is derived directly from the hemp plant. Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds of hemp that have an effect on the human body when the plant is consumed. The human body has cannabinoid receptors that help the compound produce many effects, which may include pain relief from inflammation, as well as help with anxiety, sleeplessness, and depression.
There are over 100 known and suspected cannabinoids present in hemp, each having various effects on the body. Cannabinoids are separated by various subclasses, including cannabigerols (CBG), Cannabichromenes (CBC), Cannabidiols (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinols (THC), Cannabinol (CBN), and cannabinodiol (CBDL).
