CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is only one of the 113+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis/ hemp plant.
CBD was discovered in 1940 and has been used and studied for over 70 years.
Cbd is not thc. Thc is the culprit that gives marijuana its “high”. CBD is non-psychoactive, and is being widely used by adults, children and pets.
CBD has been studied by the medical community and has been reported upon in multiple journals.
CBD can be consumed and utilized in many forms: including oils, tinctures, cosmetics, topical creams, gummies, chocolate, powder and off-the-shelf beverages. You might also come across food and beverage establishments adding CBD to cocktails, coffees and shake (and Carl’s Jr even has a CBD burger in select locations).
There are different types and extraction methods of CBD, including isolate, full spectrum, broad spectrum, CO2, nano technology, etc. It is important to work with an educated provider to help decide what is best for your desired outcome.
You need to know and trust what you are buying. Only buy CBD from trusted suppliers that perform independent 3rd-party testing, will show you the test results, and can speak knowledgeable about the type of CBD, dosage, and extraction method. It is safer to stay clear of vape shops, marijuana dispensaries, gas stations and multi-level marketing companies.
