WHAT IS IT, EXACTLY?
It’s weed, but not as you know it. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a botanical extract taken from the hemp plant. It contains only trace amounts of THC (the psychoactive substance that makes weed illegal). This means you won’t get high, but also that you don’t have to meet a dodgy bloke in a dark-windowed Vauxhall Corsa to acquire it.
