What is CBD?
CBD is short for “cannabidiol.” It is the scientific name for one ingredient found naturally in the Cannabis sativa plant. Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid that was discovered in 1940. It is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract. In 2018, clinical research on cannabidiol included preliminary studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain, inflammation and more. Cannabidiol (CBD) is an active ingredient in cannabis derived from the hemp plant. It may help treat conditions like pain, insomnia, anxiety and more.
What is THC?
THC is short for “tetrahydrocannabinol.” Like CBD, it is another ingredient found in the cannabis plant. Laws on the use of THC vary from state to state.
