Here is some helpful information on CBD (hemp extract), and how it is different than THC (cannabis/marijuana).
CBD is not psychoactive, meaning it does not produce a “high” or change a person’s state of mind. Instead, it influences the body to use its own natural endocannabinoids more effectively.

CBD CLINIC products are topically-applied analgesics that treat pain locally by interrupting pain signaling at the site of injury. Since the product is absorbed locally, the CBD does not enter the blood stream.
