CBD stands for: Cannabinol (CBD). And CBD has come a long way. Sure, hemp has been around since ancient times, but this doesn’t mean it didn’t have to jump through a few hurdles to acquire acceptance and status. It’s a non-psychoactive compound with a primary goal of delivering therapeutic benefits. Many people confuse hemp and cannabis because they both come from the cannabis plant.
The main difference in the two is hemp plants contain no more than 0.3% THC, while cannabis plants can go upward of 30%.
