The major active components of cannabis are a family of compounds known as cannabinoids. There are over 60 different cannabinoids, though only a handful have been studied.
Cannabinoids mimic natural neurotransmitters (the chemicals which allow the transmission of signals from one neuron to the next).
CBD (cannabidiol) is the second most prominent cannabinoid in the hemp plant. It is the breakdown product of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). It can also be generated by a variety of processes including heat and CO2 extraction. Regardless of the method, CBD can be obtained as a pure distillate powder.

It has also been known to be antioxidant and antipsychotic. Recent publications report that CBD may also cause a reduction in plaque associated with dementia (Alzheimer’s).
