CBD oil is an extract that is gained from the flowers and leaves of industrial hemp – more precisely from the female plant Cannabis satvia L – and then added to a consumable plant oil. The contained cannabidiol can also be directly solved as a plant oil.
The word CBD from CBD oil stands for cannabidiol and is a cannabinoid. CBD oil is called that way because cannabidiol makes up the biggest component of all cannabinoids in hemp extract – up to 40% in fact. CBD oil contains no more than fragments of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), since industrial hemp is used for its production, which legally contains a maximum of 0,2% of THC. This is how it’s possible to sell CBD oil legally in Germany. The effect of CBD oil is not psychoactive or intoxicating. Cannabidiol is the main (and not psychoactive) component of the cannabis plant, and is being currently heavily studied for this reason.
