What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is a compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike the psychoactive compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not produce a "high" or any kind of intoxicating effect. Instead, it is believed to have potential therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions, including anxiety, pain, and insomnia.

CBD can be extracted from the cannabis plant and then processed into various forms, such as oil, capsules, and edibles. These products can then be sold as supplements or as over-the-counter products.

The use of CBD products is widely debated and not all countries have the same regulations regarding their use. In the UK, CBD is considered a food supplement and can be sold as such, however its sale as a medicine is heavily regulated and requires a license. In the US, CBD is legal in most states but the federal law is not entirely clear.

Research on the efficacy and safety of CBD is ongoing, and more studies are needed to fully understand its potential benefits and risks. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional before starting to use CBD products.
