An Introduction to Cannabidiol (CBD); the cannabinoid that doesn’t get you “high.” ☁
What in the world is Cannabidiol and why does it seem like everyone is using it? Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is being used in everything from lotions, salves, candies, chocolates, mint strips, tinctures, and the list goes on. This trendy compound is classified as a cannabinoid, diverse chemical compounds that act on cannabinoid receptors. Roughly 110 cannabinoids have been identified and that number is sure to keep growing with ongoing research in the field. Let us wait patiently as science continues to discover the others that will surely be of benefit to us all.
THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD are currently the most well-known and well-researched of the cannabinoids. We’re proud to bring you products that have been tested for and contain 0% THC. THC targets the CB1 receptors in our brain and CBD does not, which means it does not cause the intoxicating effects also known as the “high.” This makes CBD easy to incorporate into your normal day to day routines in life. Our bodies produce endocannabinoids naturally and CBD influences the way our body behaves by increasing the levels of these endocannabinoids.
