What Is CBD?

CBD Social

CBD stands for Cannabidiol and has been growing in popularity for its numerous benefits, including but not limited to anxiety/stress relief, aiding in sleep and its effectiveness as an anti-inflammatory/pain killer. Cannabidiol is one of the 113 cannabinoids that can be found in the plant. One of the most well-known of these cannabinoids is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. THC is the psychoactive component in marijuana which produces the “high” feeling one feels after ingesting marijuana. While CBD and THC are similar and structure they are quite different in their effect that CBD has absolutely no psychoactive effects and therefore will not “get you high” or impair your cognition in any way. In fact, CBD and marijuana are derived from entirely different plants! As stated earlier, CBD comes from the plant “Cannabis Sativa” which has an abundance of CBD whereas marijuana is derived from the plant “Cannabis Indica”.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil is extracted from the whole hemp plant and should contain between 60-70% CBD with the remaining percentages being comprised of other cannabinoids. These other cannabinoids work synergistically with the CBD to maximize the benefits of the CBD Oil. Pure CBD is referred to as CBD Isolate and is typically available in crystalized form. CBD Isolate is 100% cannabidiol and is devoid of any other cannabinoids. Non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as Cannabidiol are particularly beneficial because they do not have any toxic effects even at high doses.
