CBD is the topic du jour at the moment. It's popping up nearly everywhere - in drinks, ice creams, bath bombs, you can even slather on CBD body cream from head to toe. Everyone everywhere is talking about it - from your favorite A-lister-turned-entrepreneur to your influential Instagram babes. It's hard to overstate the speed at which CBD has become the biggest hype in wellness. But do you really know what it is, what it isn’t, and why so many are adding CBD to their daily self-care routine?
First things first, let us explain what CBD is
CBD, known as cannabidiol, is a type of compound found in the cannabis plant called a cannabinoid. Yes, we said cannabis - but this isn’t the cannabis you think. The cannabis plant contains many compounds called cannabinoids. Maybe you are familiar with one of them, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), known to get you high. BUT there’s another compound completely separate from THC, the cannabidiol (CBD), which is not psychoactive. Instead, it can be balancing.
Is CBD legal?
Yes! CBD is legal to buy in Sweden, all across Europe and in many other countries around the world. THC is not.
