CBD (or cannabidiol, to give it its full name) is one of over 100 naturally occurring chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in cannabis or hemp plants (in the leaves, flowers and stems). Supplementing the body with cannabinoids, such as CBD, has been found to help with conditions such as anxiety, stress, pain and inflammation. In fact, CBD’s anxiety-tackling benefits are of particular appeal to many users, given that the WHO predicts stress and anxiety will be the number-one cause of disease in young people by the end of 2020. And, in case you’re wondering, CBD isn’t psychoactive (i.e. it won’t get you high), as it contains no, or only traceable amounts of, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the principal psychoactive component in cannabis).
