What Is CBD?

So you keep hearing all about how great CBD is, but you can’t help but ask, what even is CBD? CBD is short for cannabidiol, which for many is quite a mouthful to say hence why everyone refers to it simply as CBD. 

Cannabidiol is a chemical compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant, more commonly known as the hemp or marijuana plant. CBD is the 2nd most prevalent active ingredient of the cannabis plant. While CBD is one of the hundreds of compounds in the marijuana plant, it does not offer the psychoactive “high” that people get from consuming marijuana with THC.  THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is only found in very trace amounts (less than 0.3%) in full-spectrum CBD, which is not enough to elicit any high. CBD isolate products go through further refinement so that the only compound left is CBD. 

Why Do People Consume CBD? 

Many people turn to CBD to help with a variety of ailments; often, these people are looking for an alternative. While the jury is still out on exactly how effective these treatments are, there has been extensive research into how CBD can help with specific conditions. 

What Are My Options For Consuming CBD?

There are four primary ways in which to consume CBD: inhaling via smoking or vaping, topical applications such as creams and balms, sublingually, by placing a few drops under the tongue, and the easiest and most popular is simply ingestion via edibles.
