What is CBD?
CBD, cannabidiol, is a major natural chemical compound known as a cannabinoid found in the cannabis and hemp plant. Both cannabis and hemp plants are part of the cannabis sativa L. family. There are over 100 cannabinoids found in both plant species but cannabinoid (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the better known and popular ones. These cannabinoids react with specific brain receptors that are capable to assimilate them. The difference between these two plants is that while cannabis contains THC, hemp does not. THC is the psychedelic property that makes you “high” while CBD is non-psychoactive. Both plants contain CBD but hemp has a much more higher levels of CBD while also having very low levels of THC, less than 0.3% which is why it’s now legal, compared to the levels in what is commonly known as marijuana.
It is important to understand that CBD research is still in its infancy. While there has been a lot of studies done in the last decade and there are more studies currently underway about CBD and other cannabinoids, there are some that were perform on animal and humans’ models showing promising improvements on the overall health while using CBD products.
Researchers noted that tolerance is not likely to build up while using CBD products, so the user does not have to increase their doses over time.
