What Is CBD?

3 Things You Must Know About CBD

Cannabinoids are a group of natural compounds found in cannabis. There are more than 113 cannabinoids that we know of and CBD is one of them. In simple terms, CBD, also known as Cannabidiol is just a component of cannabis just like the famous cannabinoid known for getting people high: THC.

Naturally, you’re curious as to why CBD has become the most talked about cannabinoid out of the hundreds found in cannabis.
The reason is simple: it’s because CBD doesn’t get you high. Unlike THC, CBD does not cause intoxicating effects when you consume it. Researchers believe that CBD has the most potential health benefits out of all the cannabinoids, and all without messing with your mental state. That’s why CBD has become the star of the cannabis industry.

Humans have a long history with the cannabis plant. It spans thousands of years. Over time, cannabis was bred for different uses.

The marijuana variety of cannabis is characteristically high in THC and is used for medicinal and recreational purposes.

The hemp variety of cannabis is naturally low in THC and has CBD as its primary cannabinoid. Hemp is known as the cannabis plant with thousands of different uses.

Hemp seeds are pressed to make nutritious food products, its fiber is used for rope and clothing, and of course the CBD found mostly in its flowering tops, is used for all the various nutraceutical products hitting the market today.

While hemp plants are low in THC, they legally cannot contain more than 0.3% by dry weight or in finished CBD products. Some manufacturers even choose to completely remove all THC from their CBD product lines. This is ideal for parts of the world which allow for zero THC.
