Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is one of the 400 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. These compounds interact with the recently discovered endocannabinoid system, a series of neurotransmitters spread throughout the bodies of humans and animals. Unlike its well-known cannabis counterpart delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD has no psychoactive properties and is not associated with a “high.”
Most CBD is derived from the hemp plant, a type of cannabis that by legal definition contains less than .03 percent THC. With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp is legal to cultivate in all 50 states. AerosourceH nano-emulsified water-soluble CBD and CBD isolate are extracted from 100 percent USA-grown hemp.
