Cannabidiol, known as CBD, it is one of many compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis which causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana, CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause highs. This makes CBD an very good option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms, or just wanna relax, without getting high. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil.
The big news about CBD oils is that their usage has been legalized in most US states, and many people are making the switch from nicotine e-liquids to CBD-oil infused ones, since CBD isn’t addictive and can actually help against depression and a variety of other symptoms.
