You can’t go down a street or into a local grocery store, shopping mall, or gas station without seeing displays for CBD. It is all over your Instagram feed and your friends may be talking about it as well.
This blog will go over the following:
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 100 different cannabinoids that interact with the endocannabinoid system in the human body.

CBD vs. THC: What is the difference? There is a lot of confusion about whether they are the same. The answer is “no”.
They both come from the same type of plant (cannabis), but hemp has very high amounts of CBD, and extremely low amounts of THC. Marijuana has a much higher concentration of THC but is low in CBD.
Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the naturally occurring substance in the cannabis plant that produces the “high” or the hallucinogenic effects of marijuana. These bind to the receptors in the ECS and produce the effects.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid compound found in the cannabis plant. It does not produce a high because it has an extremely low level of THC in it. It can produce relaxation or sleepiness. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
