What is CBD, and Will it Get Me High?

CBD is pretty much a buzzword at this point. You’ll hear it being incorporated at your local juice shop, headlined across leading publications, and everyone from soccer moms to teachers and lawyers are taking the compound in the hopes that it will provide some sort of relief. I bet your ears are perked up. Maybe because you take it and you’re not quite sure why. Or because you’ve heard it can provide relief and you’re curious. CBD stands for Cannabidiol, and it’s one of many cannabinoids molecules produced by Cannabis, second only to THC. I guess that’s where the caution with CBD stems from, it’s often times associated with *Marijuana and while CBD is found in THC and vice versa, there is a way to separate the CBD compound to just take advantage of the CBD benefits.  *For the record Hemp and Marijuana while similar, are two different plants. CBD is found in both, so depending on the state you live in, obviously marijuana is or isn’t legal. That can effect the CBD that you purchase depending on if they’re using Hemp or Marijuana to extract the CBD.  Some of those benefits include: Pain Relief, Stress Relief, it can help combat Anxiety, it has Anti-Seizure properties, and it can help treat sleep issues amongst a growing list of other treatments.  Going back to CBD and THC being complimentary, there are two types of CBD Oil you’ll find on the market today. Full Spectrum and CBD Isolate. The real difference is that Full Spectrum is made from multiple cannibanoids in addition to CBD like CBN, CBL, CBCVA and is known to have trace amounts of THC vs the CBD Isolate is pure CBD. Theres a huge debate of which one is better for you, it all comes down to what works for…
