CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that is found in the hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa L.). Unlike THC, it has no narcotic effect.

What is CBD?

The cannabis plant contains over 60 different compounds that have been isolated and characterised. These compounds are unique to the cannabis species and are known as cannabinoids. Some of the major cannabinoids present include CBD, THC and CBN. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive so it does not get the user ‘high’. CBD has anti-psychotic properties and can actually attenuate the intoxicating effect of THC. Numerous scientific studies suggest that CBD has a large number of medicinal properties. These beneficial properties include:

  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Analgesic
  • Antiemetic
  • Antipsychotic
  • Anti-depressant
  • Anxiolytic
