CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is just one of many different molecules known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD has many beneficial properties and is commonly used to promote overall wellness.
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all cannabis plants. They account for most of the benefits of cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids, while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which promotes homeostasis.
Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds produced in the flower clusters of the cannabis plant. Terpenes are what give cannabis its distinct aromas and have been utilized by humans for millennia in aromatherapy. Terpenes are recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug Association and are used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic products.
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Marijuana contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is known as a drug. Hemp contains negligible amounts of THC and is unlikely to cause a high.
The human endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level.
No. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce a psychoactive effect (also known as a high). This is because CBD does not affect the same receptors that THC does.
CBD’s effects are a result of its interaction with the endocannabinoid system. CBD impacts the ECS indirectly, most often through activation of outside receptors and interaction with enzymes.
Many people use CBD to promote a state known as homeostasis, the body’s natural tendency to maintain a healthy balance in all its systems. Cannabinoids are an integral part of the human body’s ability to regulate and balance a wide variety of physiological systems. CBD is also used by some for specific purposes such as supporting a good night’s rest or maintaining well-functioning joints.
Because of its ability to help support the body’s effort to maintain homeostasis, CBD is often used by those who don’t have any specific concerns.

Extremely high levels of CBD were administered and almost left the body after 8 to 10 days. It, therefore, justifies the findings that CBD will stay in your system for approximately five days if you use it in standard doses. Also, CBD exit time may vary depending on a few other factors, such as the age of the user, body weight, and method of consumption and dosage, but it cannot be longer than two weeks.
CBD itself would not report positive for marijuana or marijuana metabolite. If the CBD product contains THC at a sufficiently high concentration, it is possible, depending on usage patterns, that the use of these products could cause a positive urine drug test result for marijuana metabolites. It is best to use utmost caution and do your research when purchasing a quality CBD oil product to ensure its purity. CBD oil containing less than .3 percent THC should not affect drug test result.
CBD Oil is not addictive. An addiction to Marijuana comes out of the individual’s reliance on the psychoactive consequences of THC (the ingredient which causes a high). CBD comes from an entirely different plant – the hemp plant, which contains traces of THC but not enough to get a “high”.
CBD is not known to have any negative side effects. However, large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness. If your intention is to remain alert, this may be considered an unwanted side effect and therefore large servings should be avoided.
CBD is highly effective at reducing general inflammation. If we break down arthritis, arthro- refers to joint, and –iti s refers to inflammation. Therefore, CBD can help with the inflammation in the joints.
