Collection: WHAT IS CBD?

CBD is one of the 80 chemical substances in the Cannabis sativa plant. A natural compound that is the main component of the resinous flower of cannabis and that does not contain THC, that is, tetrahydrocannabinol. This means that it is a natural compound that does not have psychoactive or psychotropic effects, unlike cannabis.

It is important, therefore, to highlight that CBD and THC are not the same but are two different types of cannabinoids among the 113 that are present in cannabis. THC is precisely the predominant psychotropic compound in the plant.

For this reason, the WHO World Health Organization does not consider CBD to be an addictive substance, but it does attribute therapeutic properties to it, many of which are still under study. In addition, there are currently no known side effects after its use.
