What is CBD?

Modified on: 07/11/2023

There has been a lot of talking about CBD, lately. In brief, the “Cannabidiol” or CBD, is one of the most abundant cannabinoids found in hemp.

 It has been widely reported that this molecule has several therapeutic properties, including the ability to relax the body.

 Although CBD offers significant benefits for health and well-being, it is always important to remember that CBD has no psychoactive properties, unlike its closest friend: THC.

The active component of cannabidiol has also been analysed by the World Health Organization (WHO): in various publications, they underline that “CBD is not addictive” and that CBD “does not cause psychoactive or cardiovascular negative effects” but CBD has “promising therapeutic properties.”

 CBD cannabis offers all the beneficial effects of classic marijuana, rich in THC, without the dark-side effects.

 On the other side, all “classic” marijuana strains contain high levels of THC that can have too strong effects, even if they contain the benefits of CBD.
