What is Cannabidiol (CBD) and what is it for?
Cannabidiol or CBD is a compound from the cannabinoid family. It is, along with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) one of the most important active components of the cannabis plant. This compound, CBD, does not cause addiction or is psychoactive, but it does have anti-inflammatory or antioxidant benefits, which is why its oil is used in therapeutic and cosmetic products. In countries like the United States its use is widespread and many people use it to relieve their pain, anxiety or insomnia. In Spain, the production of CBD is controlled by the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS), which in 2018 indicated that CBD can be used as a cosmetic or industrial product.
