CBD Therapy Q & A

What is cannabidiol?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid, a chemical element found in nature and the human body. Cannabidiol is one of 104 different kinds of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. When the cannabis plant is processed, it becomes either hemp or marijuana.

Marijuana is a highly processed form of cannabis that contains CBD and delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the chemical responsible for the mind-altering effects of marijuana.

Hemp is a less processed form of cannabis that naturally contains a high amount of CBD and doesn’t contain any THC. Because hemp-produced CBD does not contain THC, it doesn’t have the same effect as marijuana on the body and is legal, even in states that marijuana is illegal.

CBD and has many health benefits, especially when used under the supervision of your provider at Lifestyle Medical & Wellness.
