CBD 101

What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring compound that is found in the cannabis plant. 


CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are both natural compounds found in plants of the cannabis genus. Both compounds are similar to your body’s own endocannabinoids and allows them to interact with your cannabinoid receptors. CBD is found in extractions of the hemp plant and DOES NOT provide a “high” that is associated with THC.  
THC on the other hand, is the main psychoactive component in marijuana and it binds with receptors in the brain to produce a “high” or sense of euphoria. 
Both CBD and THC can be consumed by smoking, infusing it in oils, tinctures, edibles, capsules, beverages and more.
