Relief in the Leaf: Top Ten Uses For CBD Oil Cannabidiol or CBD is a naturally-occurring cannabinoid constituent of cannabis. It is one of more than 100 identified cannabinoids in the cannabis plant and accounts for up to 40 percent of the plant's extract. The primary ingredient in marijuana is THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, a psychoactive compound that induces the “high” and hallucinogenic effect in the user. However, CBD does not have the intoxicating effects like those caused by THC and is often used for medicinal purposes. CBD is believed to anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic effects as well as the potential to stimulate the human system. In the U.S., several states have legalized or decriminalized marijuana. Nevertheless, the use, sale and possession of marijuana remain illegal under federal law.
