What Is CBD?

Posted by Pete Dadswell on

Cannabidiol is a natural remedy used for many common health issues and ailments.

More commonly known as CBD, it is one of many chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis, Cannabis sativa.

CBD does not contain Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana. Because CBD doesn't contain THC, it is not psychoactive.

This makes CBD a great option for those who are looking for the medicinal benefits without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or other pharmaceutical drugs.
