Cannabidiol is one of the most well-known, non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD binds to receptors in your immune system, providing a variety of medicinal benefits. It was originally patented by the United States Government in 2003 as a neuroprotectant and antioxidant.
CBD oil is obtained by extracting CBD from the hemp plant using a process in which CO2 is at a low temperature, under high pressure. By doing this, CO2 is captured in a liquid state, drawing out CBD and terpenes from the hemp plant.
