La Cannaisseur_CBD Facts Every Smoker Should Know

It’s well known that the THC — or tetrahydrocannabinol — is the element of weed that provides the “mental shift” that results in us getting high. A lesser known huge influence on your weed experience is cannabinol, or CBD. CBD and THC work together to balance out what we experience as “being high” but CBD alone cannot produce those effects. What CBD lacks in psychoactivity, however, it makes up for with a host of benefits, not limited to its near endless list of medical applications.

CBD is an elemental component of marijuana that lacks the psychoactive features of THC. This is what makes CBD such an attractive product for people who want the proven benefits of smoking weed (help with anxiety issues, increased hunger, relaxation, reduced inflammation, pain management) without the experience of getting high. For adolescent or elderly patients dealing with side effects from illness, CBD can provide all the healing power we’ve come to understand that pot provides, without providing the same mental stimulation as THC.

CBD can be extracted from hemp as well as marijuana plants. It can be used topically in pain relieving gels and lotions and it can be taken orally via a tincture or edible.

Basically, CBD can do everything marijuana does except get you high.
