What is CBD?

In this article, I will explain some key things about CBD.


CBD or cannabidiol is one of many naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

CBD can be found in abundance in hemp plant or one of the legal hemp strains cannabis L.sativa.

On the other hand, the abundance of  THC, the main psychoactive compound in cannabis, can be found in the Marijuana plants.

However, both of these types of plants have many other different types of cannabinoids.

The chemical structure of the CBD Chemical structure of THC is very similar.

When people talk about CBD and it’s products that means the extract has come from the hemp plant and it is legal in most European countries and America.

For example, some countries like China, CBD is illegal but growing hemp is legal.

To qualify for sales in Europe Union countries, hemp to be used to extract CBD must be grown from EU qualified hemp strain.

By EU law CBD infused products such as CBD oils, edibles, drinks, e liquids cannot contain more than 0.2 % of THC.

To make sure that the maximum THC  is less than 0.2%, the products must be tested in the lab.
