CBD Oil

Thanks to the reported medicinal properties of cannabis there’s a growing awareness around Cannabidiol (CBD).

CBD is a cannabinoid, a chemical product derived from cannabis. But CBD doesn’t create the ‘high’ associated with cannabis.  It’s the Tetrahydrocannabinol, THC, in cannabis that causes the psychoactive effect.  THC is another cannabinoid, but when extracting the CBD any  subsequent THC extract is removed.
