What does CBD Stand for?
CBD stands for “cannabidiol”. Which is the second-most abundant cannabinoid molecule naturally occurring in the cannabis or hemp plant. The most abundant molecule in the cannabis or hemp plant is of course THC: the psychoactive chemical that makes users feel “high” which CBD does not do.
What is the difference between THC and CBD
When researching CBD, or deciding whether to use it or not, it is important to understand the difference between CBD and THC.
THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is the main molecule in the cannabis or hemp plant and that’s the molecule that most people know about. THC is the molecule that makes users feel “high” or intoxicated.
CBD comes from two different cannabis plants: The hemp plant (with less than 0.3 percent THC present) or the marijuana plant (where there is much more psychoactive THC). Most CBD products tend to use CBD that is derived from the hemp plant which is what makes it legal to sell, own and use!
