CBD, short for "cannabidiol" is one of many cannabinoids, or molecules, produced by the cannabis family. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the primary psychoactive element in marijuana), CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn't have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity and doesn't cause the "high" associated with marijuana. CBD can be consumed in different forms, such as tinctures, topicals, creams, vape juices, capsule/gel tablets, and more. Consumers use CBD for many reasons. Some of the most common are pain relief, stress relief, relaxation, and sleep support. Although the effects and potential benefits of CBD are still being researched, and these statements have not been evaluated nor confirmed by the FDA, many consumers consider CBD a helpful remedy that adds to their daily lives.
