What is CBD?

in short

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a substance present in Cannabis and is an antagonist of THC. Recently studies demonstrated various effects mainly due to cannabinoids (mainly THC and CBD) which are contained in different proportions depending on the varieties, but also terpenes. The cannabinoid which recently interests the medical environment is the cannabidiol (CBD). Indeed, until recently the interest in Cannabis mainly concerned THC, or 9-tetrahydrocannabinol, and the majority of the existing varieties of Cannabis contained a lot of THC and little CBD. People did look for the 'stoned' effect and 'got high' with THC. More about CBD on Wikipedia, or just below in the articles of our Blog and recommendations from the web.
