What is CBD oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is an essential oil containing a type of non-psychoactive cannabinoid sourced from the flower and leaves of the Cannabis sativa L. plant.[1] Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds that interact with the body’s own cannabinoid receptors, which can alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. Neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, transmit messages to and from, and within the brain. The body produces its own cannabinoids (endocannabinoids), and they are also naturally produced by cannabis and some other plants (phytocannabinoids). They can be produced synthetically as well.

It’s important to note that cannabidiol is only one of at least 113 known cannabinoids, with varying effects, derived from cannabis.[2] This becomes especially important when choosing the right CBD product, due to the therapeutic benefits of what is referred to as “the entourage effect,” which we’ll expand upon further.
