Cannabidiol, better known as CBD has been gaining wide popularity as more people learn about its amazing health benefits. CBD provides pain relief, anxiety relief, and helps with insomnia, all without the psychoactive effects from THC, which is the component in marijuana that causes the "high." There was a stigma around CBD for many years because it is derived from the hemp plant, which is comes from the cannabis sativa plant, like marijuana. When the war on drugs happened, the government classed hemp in the same category as marijuana, thereby making it illegal. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD is now legal in all 50 states and can be used without fear from government intervention.
Many researchers around the world have conducted extensive testing on each part of the hemp plant and have proven that CBD is non-psychoactive, unlike its counterpart THC. Clinical trial of shown that the positive effects of cannabidiol are true and as more research is conducted, the benefits of CBD will continue to be shown.
