CBD is one of the many compounds called cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, it is not psychoactive, so it will not get its users high. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant and mixing it with a carrier.
Numerous studies have shown the many health benefits of CBD, including pain relief, anxiety and depression prevention, and sleep and insomnia aid. It has also shown to improve heart health and treat acne.
