Cannabidiol is the designation of one of over 100 natural cannabinoids obtained from the cannabis plant. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it’s safe and harmless to consume cannabidiol, as long as it’s pure and doesn’t contain dangerous toxins.
Although the hemp and cannabis plants are biologically related and appear similar at a first glance, hemp does not produce the same psychoactive effects as cannabis does. Furthermore, the hemp plant has been used as a raw material, food source or for medicial purposes for thousands of years.
Cannabidiol is not a psychoactive cannabinoid from the female hemp (cannabis), which means it does not have a psychoactive or intoxicating effect. Between you and me, this means: it doesn’t make people “high”.
