What is CBD?

CBD is a phytocannabinoid, a unique compound found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids encompass a large family of plant-derived chemicals, including cannabis bioactives like CBD, THC, CBG, CBC, CBDA, and CBDV (to name a few of the 100+), as well as terpenoids and flavonoids. THC, the first cannabinoid ever discovered back in the 1940s, is the psychoactive chemical in marijuana that induces a high. CBD is not psychoactive.

CBD products come in many shapes and sizes. Along with oil, CBD gummies, capsules, and CBD creams are common delivery forms on the market.

CBD oil is most commonly delivered in a tincture format. To take CBD oil, place the desired dose into your mouth or under your tongue (which is thought to increase absorption amount and speed), holding it there for up to a minute. You can also mix CBD oil into food and drink.
