Cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil is extracted from industrial hemp plant, a relative of marijuana, which contains only trace amounts (- 0.3%) of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), a psychotropic compound that causes a high. CBD offers many medical benefits with minimal side effects by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System (also called the Endogenouse Cannabinoid System) in our body.
The nutritional benefits of CBD include omega fatty acids, amino acids, protein, antioxidants, calcium, potassium and B vitamins. [Source: Hemp As Food – CBD Hemp Warehouse]
