What is CBD?
Recently there has been a lot of hype around CBD, but what is it? CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a molecule found in cannabis plants. Like THC, CBD is created by cannabis plants for use as a defense mechanism.
How Does it Work
Similar to THC, CBD works by activating specific pathways in our brains and bodies and is also known for a wide range of effects including certain therapeutic benefits.
I Have Heard CBD Is Not Psychoactive? Is This True?
Many companies are making the claim that CBD is psychoactive. Because CBD affects our brain this is not technically true, however, CBD is commonly considered to be mildly intoxicating and to some non-intoxicating. This makes CBD an attractive option for people who want the benefits of cannabis products yet want to maintain a greater sense of functionality.
Where Can I Get CBD products?
Currently, CBD products do not need to be sold in legal cannabis stores and are therefore available online and in certain retail stores. THC products that also contain CBD, however, may only be sold through licensed cannabis retailers.
