CBD is one of many cannabinoids found in hemp. Cannabinoids have been used for centuries and we even have a system in our body, the endocannabinoid system associated with these compounds.
We sure do! The endocannabinoid system is recognized as an important modulatory system in the function of brain, endocrine, and immune tissues. It is believed to play an important regulatory role in the secretion of hormones related to mood, pain, and response to stress.
CBD is cultivated from hemp plants that produce high amounts of CBD and low amounts of THC. So, while both are from the cannabis genus of plants, the difference is that hemp contains no more than 0.3% of THC, the psychoactive substance found in marijuana. The purpose of the cultivation, and the product produced in turn, is quite different.
CBD and THC are cannabinoids that are both found in the cannabis plant. It's important to know that CBD is different from THC. CBD is non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive, so it does not have the ability to get you high. THC is the psychoactive component found in marijuana.
Some people may be concerned with the risks involved with CBD in large part due to the taboo nature of cannabis. But some of those fears were relieved when the World Health Organization released a paper that called CBD oil safe for human use. According to the WHO, "CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile." If you are interested in reading more, please see the study here.
Full spectrum hemp extract contains an array of compounds found in hemp, including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and trace amounts of THC (<0.3%). Broad spectrum hemp extract undergoes processing to remove the THC component to non-detectable levels.

Like most things, there is no magic answer. The amount and form of CBD to take is very personal to you and depends on purpose, your individual body make-up, dietary habits, and what you might be trying to accomplish by taking it. What’s right for your friend, may not be what’s ideal for you. Most professionals in this area suggest you "start low and go slow". Start with a small dose and hold it there for at least a week to note how you feel. Make tiny adjustments up or down if needed. Remember, everyone is different. Once you find the dose that works for you, keep it there – with CBD, more is not always the right answer. Talk to your doctor about any specific questions or concerns about how CBD fits with your current situation. These aren't official recommendations, but rather helpful guardrails.
