What is CBD?CBD is short for cannabidiol and is one of the most abundant cannabinoids found in marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD is known to be non-psychoactive in the sense that it doesn’t contribute to the ‘high’ you get after consuming (drink, eat, vape or smoke) weed. However, that does not mean it holds no value. In fact, the compound is now a subject of research in the medical field to see how well it can be used to address certain medical conditions in patients
What is CBD oil?The term CBD oil is commonly used to refer to oils that have a high concentration of CBD in them. They are usually extracted from the resin glands present on the buds and flowers of the cannabis plant. In some cases, CBD oil can also be extracted from hemp which is considered an industrial and fibrous form of the cannabis plant
What is CBD oil used for?Even though it is not a psychoactive ingredient, CBD still has a lot of applications for its users.

According to one study, CBD oil can be used to alleviate the symptoms of cancer. It is even believed that it functions well in the reduction of acne.
