What Is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound that can be found in both the hemp and marijuana plants, two major strains of cannabis. However, due to the hemp plant being naturally high in CBD and very low in THC, it is the strain most commonly used for extracting CBD. This allows you to experience the benefits of CBD without the “high” associated with marijuana.
*All of our CBD products will contain <0.3% THC and will not make you feel “high”.
How is cannabidiol different from marijuana?
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.”
