what is CBD
What Does Full Spectrum CBD Mean?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Full spectrum CBD is derived from hemp and contains many cannabinoids beyond only CBD, including THC, along with other elements of the hemp plant, including naturally-occurring terpenes, essential vitamins, fatty acids, protein, and more.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are known to be a cornerstone of pain relief and healing with cannabis. They are a class of chemical compounds derived from hemp and cannabis that interact directly with the cannabinoid receptors found throughout the endocannabinoid system (“ECS”).
Will CBD make me feel high?
Cannabidiol (CBD) has many health benefits, without producing the psychoactive, “euphoric” effects of THC. “Relaxing but not intoxicating” is how some of my patients have described the effect.
Is it safe?
– CBD exhibits no effects on humans indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.
– To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.
– Chronic use and high doses up to 1,500 mg/day of CBD are reportedly well tolerated in humans.
