What is CBD?
There are two parts to the Cannabis plant.
- CBD (Cannabidiol)
- THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)
CBD is one of the active compounds found in the Cannabis plant. The other compound THC, the more well-known side, due to its psychoactive properties, it’s the part that gives you that “high” feeling.
CBD is not psychoactive but has many of the same medical benefits as THC. This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those looking for the therapeutic benefits without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or that “stoned” feeling.
CBD oil is made by extracting the CBD from the cannabis plant and then diluting it in a carrier oil such as coconut or hemp seed oil.
CBD can interact with certain medications. So, before you begin using CBD oil, please consult with your doctor or pharmacist about any drugs you are taking to avoid possible side effects.
