Myths, legends and errors about the CBD

As research into CBD as an alternative or complement to traditional medicine advances, more and more myths and doubts arise about this hemp compound. Cannabidol, or CBD, is a non-toxic compound with important therapeutic properties from the marijuana plant.

Introduction to CBD

What is CBD and where does it come from? Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a phytocannabinoid (natural cannabinoid) found in the flowers of the cannabis plant. Most of the CBD used medicinally comes from hemp. Both hemp and marijuana originate from Cannabis Sativa, but they are very different from each other. For years, cannabis growers have modified and refined different strains of marijuana to produce high levels of THC, different flavours and even varied colours, but they have never had to alter the plants as they are already full of CBD. Hemp not only produces an incredibly rich oil, but also has many other interesting uses that can provide sustainable alternatives to many everyday products. To date, over 100 different phytocannabinoids have been found within the plants, but the focus is on CBD and THC. This is mainly due to
