Facts About CBD
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a molecule derived from the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol), its better-known sibling, CBD won’t get you high. But it is – and this contradicts what you’ve probably heard – psychoactive. Psychoactive simply means that it affects the mind. And CBD does that. It influences the body’s endocannabinoid system, altering the release of neurotransmitters in the brain.
