Its other variant, which is the already popular delta-9 tetrahydro cannabidiol or THC, also termed as the cousin to CBD, is another major constituent in marijuana. The non-psychoactive nature of CBD makes it different from its medical cousin and is the main reason for its sudden popularity among the masses.

It does not cause the common “high” feeling which is most associated with the use of common hemp-based products. It does not alter the mind and this makes its use in the medical industry that much more suitable. There are exceptions, says the expert, that some people might react differently to the use of CBD, but it is only a small percentage of 5.
