CBD or Cannabidiol, is one of over 113 identified cannabinoids in the Cannabis plant, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract.
CBD was isolated from the cannabis plant in 1940 by Dr. Roger Adams and his team at the University of Illinois, and its chemical structure was established in 1963 by Dr. Raphael Mechoulam

As of 2018, preliminary clinical research on cannabidiol included studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain.
