What are cannabinoids and cannabidiol (CBD) and what does it do?

Hemp is a chemical super-plant that produces many different compounds.  These compounds can be found in other plant species, but more than sixty of them are specific to the cannabis plant. Scientists call these special compounds “cannabinoids.” Cannabinoids found in hemp are derived from the aerial parts of the plant. A particular cannabinoid called cannabidiol (CBD) appears to offer many medicinal and therapeutic benefits and is poised to change medicine as we know it today. CBD also has no severe side effects, making it an attractive natural option for the masses.
