What is CBD?

CBD is the abbreviation for Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid and one of the 113 identified cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Plant (Cannabaceae family).

While you can find CBD in Marijuana, Legal CBD comes from the hemp plant which is a cannabis plant. The difference is that hemp has very low amounts or no THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another extract from Cannabis and plays a distinct role in differentiating legally the difference between hemp and Medical Marijuana. CBD does not have the same psychoactivity as THC, it does not produce the same High effects that its Medical grade counterpart does.

Cannabidiol works by interacting with the bodies natural systems through what is known as the Endocannabinoid System or ECS. The Endocannabinoid System is made up of receptors throughout your body.

Cannabidiol can be taken internally in multiple ways; by inhaling smoke or vapor, by mouth, or by aerosol spray. It is also possible to use it as a topical.
