CBD, the trendiest three letters in culture right now. What exactly is it and what does it do? CBD is short for cannabinoid; it can be found in the cannabis plant AND in the human body! It is best known for anti-anxiety and stress-relieving qualities without the high feeling. The "high" comes from THC, which is found in the marijuana plant. This means, when ingesting/inhaling CBD there is no high, there is no moment when it will hit you. What you should be paying attention to when using CBD is what are you not feeling- the pressure on your chest, the stress in your shoulders should dissolve. CBD can be derived from both the hemp and marijuana plants and is a naturally occurring compound, a form of plant medicine, that can be incorporated into your daily life to help increase well-being while decreasing anxiety, reduce inflammation, enhance sleep, and quiet the mind chatter.
