What Is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It’s a naturally occurring substance that’s used in products like oils, to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it’s not psychoactive. Ohhhh, ya mean like Marijuana?? Yeah it’s not like that.
Is CBD the same as MARIJUANA?
No, IT’S NOT POT. If you are completely unfamiliar with CBD, you may be picturing someone in a zen den, listening to Phish and smoking their worries away. And I’m sorry to tell you, you aren’t going to find that here.
While CBD is taken from the same cannibis plant as your THC-filled, college-experimental days, it lacks the psychoactive and mind altering effects. AKA NO, you don’t get high. (sorry Cheech’).
While some call CBD oil Marijuana’s close cousin- fear not, as researchers have been spending the last several years proving that while Marijuana has amazing medicinal properties…what if we could take out the part “that makes people high?”
The cannabis plant is made up of two main players: CBD and THC.
And while THC is 20 times more potent than aspirin and twice as potent as hydrocortisone for reducing inflammation. It’s also likely to have a more powerful medicinal effect for certain conditions, CBD has therapeutic properties on its own. YL Nature’s Ultra does NOT contain THC!!
“The 2 major phyto- cannabinoid constituents with central nervous system activity are THC, responsible for the euphoric and mind-altering effects, and CBD, which lacks these psychoactive effects.” (PubMed)
