CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, in the cannabis plant. CBD oils are oils that contain concentrations of CBD. Most people associate CBD with marijuana. Marijuana contains both THC and CBD, but these compounds have different effects. THC creates the “high” when people smoke it or use it in cooking. CBD does not produce these psychoactive effects. CBD may also be extracted from large quantities of hemp.
**Note** The effects described below are primarily based on daily doses of hundreds of milligrams of CBD. Many CBD products on the market contain much lower amounts (providing tens of milligrams or less per day). It is not known if these lower doses are as effective as higher doses.
How does CBD work?
CBD produces many effects through multiple molecular pathways. Scientific literature has identified more than 65 molecular targets of CBD.
CBD is broken down by a receptor that breaks down many different types of therapeutic medications. Therefore, CBD may increase the blood concentration of certain medications such as macrolides, calcium channel blockers, benzodiazepines, cyclosporine, sildenafil, antihistamines, haloperidol, antiretrovirals, and some statins. It is imperative you consult with your doctor before trying any CBD products.
What do you use CBD oil for?

Unlike THC, research has shown that CBD has many beneficial effects when dealing with seizures, anxiety, and more. Here are the ways in which CBD can be useful when treating various medical issues.
