CBD News

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in cannabis and hemp plants that has gained significant attention for its potential health benefits without the psychoactive effects typically associated with marijuana. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the main psychoactive substance in marijuana, CBD does not cause a high. Research on CBD suggests that it may help alleviate symptoms of various conditions including anxiety, chronic pain, and epilepsy. CBD is available in several forms, such as oils, capsules, gummies, and topical creams. The legal status of CBD varies by country and in the U.S., it largely depends on whether it is derived from marijuana or hemp, with hemp-derived CBD being legal under federal law following the 2018 Farm Bill, as long as it contains less than 0.3% THC. However, the market remains loosely regulated, making it important for consumers to seek out reputable sources and products.
