CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

There's over 100 cannabinoids in cannabis plant and THC is the only psychoactive cannabinoid. Hemp contains very small amount of THC, 1% or less which opens more room for CBD, CBN, CBG, CBD-A and others cos there must be 100%. Now, crossing these two one gets a cannabis plant with mixed percentages. Breeder later decides which plant is going into further crossing to get higher certain cannabinoid level.

Not sure was that the question, but I hope it helps.
