What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is basically one of 60+ compounds found within the cannabis plant. These “cannabinoids” are essentially the molecules that make up the plant’s substance. THC is the more well known cannabinoid known for getting its users “stoned” or “high”. What makes CBD amazing is that it actually counteracts the effects of THC. Strains of the plant that have higher levels of CBD naturally have lower levels of THC. These strains of cannabis are used medically because they are either non-psychoactive or much less psychoactive compared to strains with high levels of THC.
