What Is CBD?


If you have never heard about CBD — or even if you have, and aren’t sure what everyone has been talking about — it’s only natural that you might have some questions. There are many facts — and more than a few fictions — floating around about CBD lately. Perhaps you’ve seen signs outside of buildings or markets advertising that the business now sells CBD. Or maybe you’ve even noticed CBD products on display at gas station convenience store counters.

The team at Your CBD Store invites people who might be curious about CBD — or have questions about what it is and what it can do — to stop by one of four convenient locations. Find Your CBD Store in Brownsville, Harlingen, North McAllen, and Sharyland.

Starting with the basics, CBD stands for cannabidiol. It represents one of the whole group of naturally occurring chemical compounds called cannabinoids, which are found in hemp plants. Though some people who use CBD report having a dry mouth, there are no other known serious side effects of CBD. And though there have been no serious drug interactions reported with CBD, it is best to consult with a pharmacist on how CBD could affect the levels of the medications you are currently taking. You do not need a prescription to purchase CBD. When used as directed, CBD is unlikely to trigger positive urine drug screening because of the negligible amounts of THC present in the product.

It is legal to sell CBD as a dietary supplement. All legal CBD products contain less than 0.3 percent of THC — the substance that causes mood and alertness changes in users. People can use CBD in a variety of ways based on what their needs and goals might be, and every approach is different.

CBD comes in many different forms, including water solubles, tinctures, edibles, vapes, gel caps, pet products, and skin care products.
