But before we get into all it’s incredible benefits, let’s get a few things straight first:
What is CBD exactly?
According to health.com, CBD is short for “cannabidiol”, a chemical compound from the “Cannabid sativa plant”. Unlike it’s cousin part, THC, CBD is not hallucinatory or psychoactive. It really just releases feelings of calm and relaxation.
Will is get me (or my pet) high?
Nope! With a cannabis plant being composed of two main components, CBD and THC, the CBD part is the non-psychoactive portion of the plant, as opposed to THC, which is the part that gives off the euphoric sensations people experience when smoking cannabis.
