CBD industry is witnessing new revolutions ever since its amazing health benefits have been validated by various pieces of medical research. Cannabidiol, also known as CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis (marijuana) plant and has been proven to have multiple health benefits owing to its anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. While various other compounds present in the marijuana plant create the so-called “high”, CBD is not the one responsible for the same.
