What is CBD? – YourHemp

What is CBD and is it short for Cannabidiol?

We have so many people ask us what CBD is and is it short for Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol or CBD is a naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent of cannabis.

The cannabis plant is made up of many different chemical compounds, cannabinoids. One of these cannabinoids is more popularly known as CBD, which is the non-psychoactive that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to give you the benefits which are well documented globally.

What is THC?

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis which is another cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant.

Less than 0.2% of THC is found in YourHemp CBD products meaning you will never feel the side effects or the ‘high’. Any higher doses of THC are illegal.

YourHemp CBD products WILL NOT get you ‘high’.

Here at YourHemp we’d love to break down all the phenomenal benefits CBD or Cannabidiol does for you, however at this stage unfortunately we can’t because of government restrictions. We do urge you to research for yourself the important benefits as you’ll be blown away, we certainly were. As soon as we’re able to express these we will.
