CBD is short for cannabidiol (ka-nə-bə-ˈdī-ˌȯl) and is a naturally occurring compound found in the flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history in medicine and utility dating back thousands of years. CBD is a safe, legal, non-addictive substance.
CBD is related to another important medicinally active phytocannabinoid: THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the compound that causes the high that cannabis is more generally known for. CBD and THC are the two components are the most studied by scientists at this stage.
ABLE's CBD products contain CBD with zero percent THC. CBD has been shown to have significant therapeutic attributes, and CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. CBD is not mind-altering. This is because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and throughout the body, which you can find more about in the "learn" portion of our website.
