Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent of the cannabis plant. It is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in hemp plants, which can account for 80% or more of the plant’s extract depending on the extraction method.
Reported effects of CBD include sleepiness, decreased appetite, fatigue, weakness, sleeping problems, and others. It does not have intoxicating effects like those caused by THC. CBD has been found to interact with a variety of different biological targets, including cannabinoid receptors and other neurotransmitter receptors.
