CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound made from hemp plants. It is non-psychoactive and safe for humans and animals. It’s been gaining increasing scientific attention. We’ve been using it for our family, friends, and pets for decades.
Pure CBD does not get you “high.” THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the cannabinoid that produces psychoactive effects, and it’s found in high doses in marijuana – hemp’s close cousin. But CBD is derived from hemp plants and is considered a safe plant by-product. While CBD and THC are both considered cannabinoids, they act on totally different receptors in the brain and central nervous system, which make up our endocannabinoid system. Only THC produces the effect that is associated with ingesting cannabis to get “high.”
