CBD is short for cannabidiol, a critical phytocannabinoid found in hemp, known for supporting the body and mind in many ways. CBD comes from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant, not to be confused with oil from hemp seeds, which doesn’t contain cannabinoids.
Scientists are researching the anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic and anti-inflammatory effects of CBD. Some tout it as an over-the-counter solution to aches, pains and insomnia. As the research continues, so could the demand.
FDA approval of a hemp-based drug represents seismic political, legal and economic shifts. Approval will likely lead to more clinical research and further validation of CBD’s therapeutic efficacy.
The sale of CBD extracted from the hemp plant—which is our method—is legal in 32 countries in Europe and now legal in all American states.
