Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is a molecule made by the cannabis plant. Cannabis is one of the oldest and most versatile crops known to humanity. The species Cannabis sativa specifically has had a long and extensive history intimately entwined with our species. We’ve used cannabis for millenia in textiles, paper, rope, food, and medicine.
As a consumer, you will have many red flags to watch out for when purchasing CBD, and you should take precautions against buying oil that is low quality, inaccurately labelled, overpriced, or even dangerous.
