So.. What the heck is CBD?

Texas has passed an Agriculture Bill Chapters: 121 and 122 to allow for the sale of CBD with proper licensing.
is Cannabidiol, a naturally-occurring compound found in the stems, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant (cannabis sativa). It is the most abundant non-intoxicating cannabinoid in cannabis and is being widely studied for its healing properties.
Another well known cannabinoid is THC, a compound which is concentrated in certain strains of cannabis which gets users high. Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid and does not cause a high.
