CBD is one of more than 90 cannabinoids derived from the hemp plant. Many studies have shown the benefits of CBD and its effect on serotonin in the brain. CBD, which has too little THC to experience the psychoactive benefits, can be taken on a daily basis. Everyone’s endocannabinoid system is different, so the dosage of CBD that works for a friend may not work for you. There is a bit of trial-and-error before you find the perfect CBD that works for you and your lifestyle.
CBD is part of the hemp plant, but it isn’t supposed to get you high. The cannabinoid that creates a psychoactive effect is THC, not CBD. There usually is a trace amount of THC in CBD products to help with the absorption of CBD in your body. It’s important to check the Certificate of Analysis (COA) on the CBD products you buy, which is a report that verifies the amount of THC present in each CBD product. Regardless of the label, CBD products can have a larger amount of THC or additives in it, so check the COA before purchasing and consuming.
