Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is the second most common cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. THC, also referred to as Tetrahydrocannabinol is the most common. Unlike THC, CBD does not have any psychotoxic properties and therefore it does not give you the ‘high’ feeling that THC does.

Will CBD interact with my other medications?
At low doses of CBD (less than 150mg total per day), it is unlikely that significant drug-herb interactions will occur. However it is always possible that drug-herb interactions can occur, and this is more likely the higher the dose. CBD and other plant cannabinoids can potentially interact with many pharmaceuticals by inhibiting the activity of cytochrome P450, a family of liver enzymes. If you are taking a medication where maintaining a certain blood level is critical - such as anti-seizure, anti-viral, blood-thinning medications - talk with your health care provider or pharmacist before trying CBD.
Does CBD affect appetite?
CBD has little to no effect on one's appetite. However, CBD does help to ensure a better night's uninterrupted sleep. This in turn has a positive effect on one's appetite and diet, such as less cravings for sugar.
