No doubt you have heard about CBD Oil. CBD stands for Cannabidiol and is an extract of the hemp plant which does not contain the “buzz”-inducing “high” associated with THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol.

THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis. CBD is not psychoactive, unlike THC.

CBD Oil is typically used for health-related and wellness-related reasons, rather than for recreational purposes. CBD Oil is an increasingly popular natural remedy used for conditions such as for pain relief, reduction in anxiety and depression, fibromyalgia, arthritis, diabetes, treating side effects of cancer treatments, and a variety of other conditions. According to Forbes, The Hemp Business Journal estimated that the CBD market will grow to a $2.1 billion market in consumer sales by 2020. CBD Oil is also being marketed for man’s best friend, canines.
