What is CBD, a cannabis compound (which is called a cannabinoid), and it is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced by the hemp plant. CBD interacts directly with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) already present in our bodies. CBD helps the ECS to maintain a healthy internal balance and assists with regulating a number of critical bodily functions. Recent scientific research has indicated that CBD may provide numerous health benefits.

The Difference Between CBD And THC

There are hundreds of compounds in hemp and cannabis plants.

Cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol, which is abbreviated to THC, are two of the most common and best understood. There is also CBG, CBN, THCV and more.

THC is the primary compound responsible for cannabis’ psychoactive effects. In other words, THC is the reason why weed produces a ‘high’ feeling.

Though CBD exists side by side with THC, its effects are profoundly different. More specifically, CBD cannot get you high. Its effects are largely internal.

WHAT ARE CBD’S BENEFITS?

Cannabidiol is a relatively new discovery, which means that the scientific community is still in the process of uncovering its medical and medicinal benefits.

As of today, cannabidiol has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This means that we cannot legally make any definitive claims about how hemp-based products can benefit your health.

However, we can say that a growing body of research from around the world have encouraging findings about hemp medicine. These could soon change the way we create medicine and wellness products.

Additionally, an increasing number of people claim to benefit from cannabidiol, which they use for both medical and medicinal purposes.
