The letters “CBD” have been everywhere lately from listed on lotions at Target to Billboards promoting CBD oil and flower. What is this CBD craze and what is the CBD flower we carry??
CBD stands for cannabidiol. According to Harvard, CBD is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis. While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant.
The high we think of from smoking cannabis comes from THC, not CBD. A lot of medical patients use CBD for anxiety, pain, and stress. CBD is not intoxicating or anxiety inducing like THC, so people are able to go on about their day without feeling too high to function.
The legality of CBD is probably on your mind. Well it’s legal in all 50 states in America as long as there isn’t more than .3% Delta 9 THC.
In the European Union all CBD flower sold has to be under .2% Delta 9.
