What Is CBD?
Get to know CBD!
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a therapeutic compound residing in the cannabis or hemp plant (more on those differences later) and is just one of many phytocannabinoid compounds produced by the plant.
But what does this mean?
Let’s compare another common plant, lavender. We all know and love lavender because of its calming and relaxing properties. The major players, or compounds, in lavender are linalyl acetate and linalool — they help us wind down and chill out.
And this is what CBD is, a specific and natural compound that is supportive to many systems and processes in our bodies. So instead of complicating things and getting all twisted and tied that it’s derived from cannabis or hemp, let’s distill this stigma and realize CBD comes from a beautiful botanic!
Many perk up when they hear the word of CBD or cannabis mainly because it’s so heavily tied with marijuana, pot, or whatever the kids are referring to it as these days!
Yes, CBD is closely connected with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) — the psychoactive, euphoric compound in cannabis — and they are also the most studied compounds in cannabis, but as we know, there are many, many others that play a restorative role.
Both CBD and THC play a vital role in the supportive properties of the cannabis or hemp plant, however, CBD is THC’s type A cousin and doesn’t leave one feeling stoned or intoxicated, typically quite the opposite!
CBD and THC act on different receptor sites and carry out different therapeutic functions.
Because CBD doesn’t produce a high and is therapeutically dynamic makes it an excellent choice for those who want the benefits of cannabis but don’t want the euphoria associated with it.
An illuminating tidbit about CBD is it can actually offset the effects of THC!
So, if you’re cautious or a little cannacurious, CBD is the gateway to healing!
