What does "Cannabidiol" mean?
Definition: The second-most common cannabinoid (chemical unique to weed) found in marijuana, CBDs are the non-psychoactive ingredient of marijuana that is used to treat a number of diseases, including epilepsy and autism. It was almost bred out of weed because people were more concerned with getting high off THC, but recently it’s been making a comeback for the aforementioned medical reasons. It's common in hemp products, which means it's technically legal in the United States. But at the federal level, it's still illegal to use cannabidiol to get high.
Example usage for Cannabidiol
"Did you hear about that high-CBD strain called Charlotte's Web that doesn't even really get you high? They bred it particularly for children who can benefit greatly from smoking weed but shouldn't actually be getting high."
