CBD is a type of cannabinoid present in cannabis plants, like hemp. These plants contain 113 known cannabinoids, and this natural compound has received more attention after its legalization in the 2018 Farm Bill. There is another, much more famous, cannabinoid called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It is famous because it is the cannabinoid that causes the psychoactive effect generally called a high.
One thing to know about CBD is that it doesn‘t work like THC. In fact, CBD may provide some positive health benefits, such as supporting joint health and achieving a greater sense of calm without causing the high associated with marijuana use. This is why CBD has become so popular in recent years. Due to its increased popularity and risen demand, manufacturers are now producing various CBD-infused products, including:
- Oils and tinctures
- Other edibles besides gummies
- Creams and lotions
- Capsules and pills
