Where does it come from?
CBD (cannabidiol) comes from the federally legal industrial hemp plant, along with over 110 other different cannabinoids. Because of its sturdy fibers, hemp has been used for a wide range of industrial and medical applications historically: it was used to build ships, construct homes, and make fabric for clothing.
What can it be used for?
The amazing thing about CBD is that it can be used in varying ways for a myriad of ailments. Scientific and clinical research, sponsored and supported by the US government, has found that CBD is an appealing option for pain-relief, inflammation, anxiety, and other conditions—without any lingering feeling of lethargy, paranoia, or dysphoria.
