What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the many cannabinoids that is found in cannabis. Cannabis refers to the genus of plant under which hemp and marijuana fall. Unlike its more well-known cousin, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive properties, which means that it doesn’t cause the high which is frequently associated with marijuana.


Why CBD?

Though CBD research is still in its infancy, thus far, CBD shows potential for general wellness. It appears that CBD has an anti-inflammatory effect, which may be why it shows promise as a way to manage chronic pain. There is also a growing body of research on CBD for anxiety disorders that support the idea that CBD can be used for relaxation. 

Beyond that, CBD is currently being studied for its promise in helping with many different health concerns, from heart health to depression to dementia. While more research needs to be done on these potential benefits, please consult your physician for more information.  Chill does not make any health claims via CBD.
