With CBD being the hit of the market, many are doing what they can to get a piece of the popular pie. Everywhere you look there are shops and brands popping up. Just as quickly is the release of opinions and information. It can often seem as though copy on the market is seeping out of every crevice of the internet.
The problem is, not everyone involved in the industry is in it for the right reasons. Being able to differentiate between what is correct (or even functionally accurate) information from the inflamed sales pitch is often difficult for new consumers.
With myriad opinions on what CBD is, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about what CBD isn’t.
CBD is not marijuana
Often painted with a broad brush of misinformation, many are fearful that CBD and the “scary” marijuana (societal terminology) are the same. They are not. CBD is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found inside both plants in the cannabis category. Both low THC hemp (federally legal) and high THC “marijuana” (legal in select states and with varied restrictions) have the CBD (Cannabidiol) compound in them.
