What is CBD? You first heard about it from your cousin Ricky, grandma’s asking about it for her knee pain, and suddenly every influencer on Instagram is suddenly sponsored by a CBD company. Well, let us give you the 411.
CBD is a cannabinoid that is found in both cannabis and hemp plants. Unlike is well-known brother THC, which is responsible for getting you high, CBD has a completely different effect when consumed. It has ZERO psychoactive properties which mean it will not get you high. What it does is decrease inflammation in the body which has a huge amount of benefits. The decrease in inflammation works wonders on body, joint, and muscle pain. It also has been shown to have a calming effect and as such has been used to treat anxiety. Sounds great right?

We’re going to get a little technical here. There are three different types of CBD; Full Spectrum, Isolate, and Broad Spectrum. Each one is slightly different and has different benefits. Full Spectrum contains CBD as well as other ingredients from the plant matter it’s created from. This includes other flavonoids, terpenes, and other cannabinoids like THC. Full spectrum benefits from the ‘Entourage Effect’ which is the theory that cannabis ingredients work best together rather than isolated. Not recommended for THC sensitive users as there are trace amounts of it found in Full Spectrum CBD.
