CBD is also said to help with smaller stuff, like helping you recover faster from workouts thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.
CBD is one of more than 100 chemical compounds found in cannabis plants, which include both marijuana and industrial hemp. CBD is a close chemical cousin to THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical compound found in marijuana that causes a psychoactive effect.
President Donald Trump signed a new Farm Bill, which, among other things, legalized the growth, distribution, and sale of industrialized hemp, allowing it to be “cultivated for any use"—including the production and extraction of CBD.
CBD does decrease inflammation when it's rubbed on muscles as an ointment or taken orally.
