@CUDAcores89 CBD is short cannabidiol. It's one of, I think, 32 strains of endocannabinoid (phytocannabinoid) compounds that the hemp and cannabis family can produce. The US has allowances for a maximum detectable THC value of 0.03%. The cool thing about non-THC cannabinoids is that you can't overdose on them, unless your pancreas and gallbladder give out trying to absorb or digest oils, and that their very helpful for numerous conditions when used together in a non-isolated form (which is why most pharma companies don't want it), but the marijuana trade is showing pharma that there IS a considerable profit to be made in the research of the plant (hypocrites) and its effects on the ECS that is pretty in quite a lot of animals, including humans, dogs, cats, and strangely birds and reptiles.
@ARikozuM this could be a research topic for grad school or even for a bachelor’s degree since research on the effects of THC and/or CBD on different body systems (pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics) are quite scanty.
