Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a lesser-known component of the cannabis Sativa plant; its more well-known sister, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the psychoactive component of marijuana. Hemp is cannabis with a THC content of less than 0.3 percent. Despite the fact that last year’s Farm Bill authorized hemp under federal law, it also retained the FDA’s regulation over cannabis-derived goods.
CBD helps in alleviating the symptoms of numerous health issues such as anxiety, stress, and post-traumatic stress disorder. It is also used as a sleep aid by individuals suffering from sleep disorders such as insomnia. CBD’s appeal stems from the fact that it is claimed to be “non-psychoactive,” meaning that users may reap the plant’s health advantages without getting high.
