What Is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is a molecule naturally present in plants classified in the cannabaceae family, in other words, the different varieties of hemp and cannabis.
Complementary to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the CBD molecule is not psychoactive and does not cause any psychotropic effects.
Despite its similar origin with THC, considered a narcotic, CBD is a substance rich in therapeutic virtues for the body and mind. This is why its consumption in France is legal and simply subject to some regulations.
When CBD is extracted from the plant, a long process is started to allow the extraction. The substance recovered is then an oily essence rich in cannabinoids.
This is how CBD oil came into being, and it quickly became a trend, which is not surprising given its high content of active ingredients.
Cannabidiol oil is available in different concentrations to suit all types of use.
How to Consume CBD Oil?
Cannabis vegetable oil has many benefits for the body, including being rich in essential fatty acids (omega 3), vitamins (vitamin E) and minerals.

It can be ingested and applied to the skin. Moreover, it can be used as a seasoning in the kitchen, for which it is preferable to choose a virgin oil, just like coconut oil.
