The Cannabis Sativa plant, one of the cannabis species, is responsible for the extraction of cannabidiol. From it a resin is extracted whose main components are cannabidiol (hemp oil) and tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC), considered phytocannabinoids found in the leaves and flowers of the plant. Hemp oil was discovered in the 1960s and gained particular attention for its lack of psychoactive effect.
Due to its excellent tolerance by humans and its low potential for abuse, it was considered the ideal candidate for use and consumption in the clinical context. THC is characterized by having psychoactive properties, on the other hand, hemp oil, lacking this property, has the advantage of providing therapeutic effects with a number of medical benefits (VanDolah et al., 2019).
