What is it?
CBD, which stands for Cannabidiol, is a compound coming from the marijuana plant.
Although, it is important to understand it is not the same as THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) the substance from marijuana that is psychoactive. Which is what allows you to get ‘high’ from taking it.
CBD is a non psychoactive compound which contains no more than 0.3% THC for it to be sold and taken legally. It does not give the feeling of sedation or drowsiness that you may experience if you were to take the other compound of marijuana that contains higher levels of THC.
From this it is always important to check the THC percentage of any CBD product you wish to take.
