CBD 101


What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of many chemical compounds (also called cannabinoids) produced by cannabis. While CBD is the second most prevalent component (one of hundreds), by itself it does not have psychoactive effects.

How is CBD different from THC?

Although CBD & THC come from the same plant, they are very distinct from one another. CBD does not contain the properties that make you feel high. The effects of CBD are not psychoactive unlike it's counterpart."

What is CBN?

CBN is a non-intoxicating compound that is best known as the cannabinoid created when THC ages. For that reason, it’s usually present in high amounts in older cannabis. While this might be a turn-off for some, others seek out older cannabis just to enjoy the effects of CBN.

What is CBG?

CBG (cannabigerol) is often referred to as the “mother of all cannabinoids.” This is because CBGA, the acidic precursor to CBG, starts off in great abundance in hemp and cannabis plants. Almost all of the CBGA then transforms into CBDA or THCA, but a fraction of it becomes CBG. Because it occurs in such tiny quantities, usually less than 1% of the plant mass, it is known as a “rare” or “minor” cannabinoid.
