WHAT IS CBD/THC?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a phytocannabinoid (cannabinoid) discovered in 1940. It is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in Cannabis plants, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. As of 2018, preliminary clinical research on cannabidiol included studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain.
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the other well known cannabinoid and is responsible for the high or eurphoria associated with marijuana.
