According to this New York Times article, cannabidiol also more commonly known as CBD is the lesser-known child of the cannabis sativa plant; its more famous sibling, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.  With roots in Central Asia, the plant is believed to have been first used medicinally or for rituals around 750 B.C., though there are other estimates too.  Cannabidiol and THC are just two of the plant’s more than 100 cannabinoids. CBD accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.  Refer to this article for more in-depth information on CBD.
