What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most abundant chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. Unlike the most famous molecule, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is absolutely a non-psychotropic substance.

It is the cannabinoid par excellence extracted from non-narcotic cannabis chemotypes, such as low THC industrial hemp.

The hemp plant, cultivated for more than 6000 years in China, produces more than 400 organic compounds, some of which correspond to the two large groups studied in cannabis, such as phytocannabinoids, exclusive to cannabis, and terpenes, with CBD being one of the most studied cannabinoids in fashion in recent years.

The cannabinoids are compounds that can influence the functioning of the human nervous system among other tissues, being the cannabinoids with greater biological activity the THC, CBD, and CBG, which differ in their structure-activity relationship, sharing common and opposite actions at the same time, depending on their mixtures, their ratios and their doses.

CBD has many potential therapeutic applications, with the relaxing effect providing a great help to relax.
