CBD 101

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of over a hundred naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. It belongs to a class of molecules known as cannabinoids. Unlike its well-known counterpart, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce the "high" typically associated with cannabis use.

Extraction and Sources

CBD can be extracted from various parts of the hemp plant, including the flowers, leaves, and stalks. The most common method of extraction is through CO2 extraction, which involves using pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired compounds from the plant material. Other methods include solvent extraction and olive oil extraction.


The legal status of CBD varies from country to country and even within different regions of the same country. In many parts of the world, CBD derived from hemp (a variety of cannabis with low THC content) is legal, while CBD derived from marijuana (a variety with higher THC content) may be subject to stricter regulations.
