What is the CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid of cannabis, present in the varieties of industrial hemp (in English “hemp”). He returned to prominence in style in 2014, after years of anonymity, because the use of extracts containing this simple substance proved to be effective in the treatment of drug-resistant epilepsy (Dravet’s syndrome), arresting a series of epileptic seizures and convulsions of a child, Charlotte Fiji, making an international outcry and triggering a chain reaction, which is turning into a real revolution.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most common chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. Like the other cannabinoids, most of the cannabidiol is produced from the bulb-shaped glandular trichomes of the flowers of the female cannabis plant; CBD is among the most abundant and one of the first to have been purified in the laboratory of 110 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. Unlike the most famous molecule, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD has no psychotropic and / or psychoactive effects, has no effect on motor functions or memory, and does not cause a change in body temperature. CBD can be taken in different ways.

It can be vaporized in the form of a flower, extracts or crystals; can be formulated in coconut oil, MCT oil (GMP), hemp oil, olive oil, and taken in a sublingual manner in different concentrations, or formulated and put into sublingual capsules or strips. CBD is contained in most of the products derived from hemp flowers.
