These days, CBD has become one of the absolute hottest items on the market. You don’t need to read this article for proof: All you need to do is go for a walk in a commercial district or do a little bit of Googling. According to a survey from August 2019 15% of Americans have actually tried CBD – and that was less than a year after its legalization at the federal level. There is little doubt that those numbers have only increased since then.
Interestingly enough, despite the fact that CBD is wildly popular, many people don’t fully understand just what CBD is, how it works and what it does. If that’s the case for you, read on for more.
What is CBD?
CBD is a compound and is short for cannabidiol. CBD is not a drug – at least, not in the traditional sense. It comes from the hemp plant and is extracted via multiple potential methods.
Ultimately, the goal of these extraction methods is to turn CBD into a product that can then be used by humans or animals. Once the product is ingested, CBD may have multiple benefits, including addressing numerous physical and emotional challenges. This includes back pain, arthritis, insomnia, and more.
