Is cannabis the same thing as CBD?

No, cannabis and CBD are not the same thing. A cannabis plant, also called marijuana, contains hundreds of different cannabinoids. These cannabinoids interact with our body’s naturally occuring endocannabinoid system to offer pain relief and different healing effects. CBD is one of these many cannabinoids. CBD is not psychoactive and cannot get you “high.” When you smoke marijuana, or eat an edible, you are ingesting all of the plants cannabinoids, including THC. THC is the cannabinoid commonly known for its psychoactive qualities, and oftentimes offers the best pain relief for patients. You do not need a medical marijuana card to use CBD, but you do need a marijuana card to use cannabis/marijuana.
