You've heard about it everywhere and now We offer a few CBD infused products right here at Posh, so lets see why CBD will change your life!
Cannabis is a plant that makes a thick substance full of compounds called cannabinoids. There are more than 100 of these chemicals in cannabis. They cause drug-like reactions in your body. CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis products, but they are VASTLY different!
THC and CBD are in both marijuana and hemp. Marijuana contains much more THC than hemp (we're talking 1000x times more), while hemp is CBD.
How CBD and THC Affect the Body
THC is the main psychoactive compound in marijuana. It's what makes people feel "high."
We have TWO types of cannabinoid receptors in our bodies! How cool is that?! THC binds with receptors -- mostly in the brain -- that control pain, mood, and other feelings. That's why THC can make you feel euphoric and give you that so-called high.
CBD doesn't cause that high. Instead, it's thought to work with other elements in the body linked to feelings of well-being.
