What is cannabidiol?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

So you’re saying CBD won’t get me high?

Nope, CBD from the hemp plant will not get you high. Even full spectrum CBD products that contain trace elements of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) will not get you high. Full spectrum products need to contain less than 0.3% THC in order for them to be legal to sell. That is why it is important to buy third-party-tested CBD for quality assurance. Because the FDA doesn’t regulate CBD, it is possible to buy a product that is more or less potent than advertised, or even contains small amounts of THC.
