No. CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of hundreds of chemicals found in hemp and many other plants. CBD products are legal because they do NOT contain Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound found in cannabis that is responsible for the psychoactive or “high” effect. We’ve all known for years there are many, MANY benefits found naturally in plants that can help with everyday life. It’s only been recently that it’s been legal to grow/cultivate/extract from hemp, due to its association with THC.
Most popularly, many people use CBD for it’s anti-inflammatory benefits and pain management. This is the sort of thing we always knew was possible with hemp, but until recently never had access to without THC. Many people use it orally to manage anxiety, as well as topically for pain relief and muscle relaxation.
