You’ve likely heard the three letters before. CBD is a buzzword, but many people don’t know what to make of the stuff. Let’s see what we can do about that.
What is CBD, exactly?
Well, it’s not pot, weed, Mary Jane, grass, or whatever the kids call it these days. In fact, it’s not even made from the same plant as marijuana. Most cannabidiol (CBD) is sourced from hemp, the male plant of the cannabis sativa species, which contains mere trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient that gets you high.
To be clear, no, CBD will not get you high. It’s not a drug with recreational uses. However, like cannabis, it may have myriad medical benefits. And it might be a great addition to your lifestyle even if you don’t have a notable medical condition.
