CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is one of the 113 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant popularly known as marijuana. Cannabidiol, unlike other cannabinoids from marijuana doesn’t give the high feeling people often get from consuming marijuana. It is mostly used by people to relieve stress and anxiety.
Despite many health practitioners recommending CDB as a stress reliever, the view that it is unsafe is still held by many people. However, with so much research being done to confirm the safety of this cannabinoid, it is only a matter of time before the safety of drugs made from CBD is accepted by all.
