Cannabidiol (CBD) is the active ingredient in cannabis that works in your body. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce a high or intoxication. CBD can balance the effects of THC, and provides potential medical benefits without the lethargic effects of THC. This may occur when the amount of CBD in the cannabis is the same or higher than the amount of THC.
CBD is extracted from the trichomes and is commonly made available as an oil or in capsule form.
