What is CBD, this product that pleases the stars?
CBD, also called cannabidiol, is a molecule extracted from the hemp plant. This substance has many benefits for mental and physical health. Indeed, it interacts with the endocannabinoid system of the human body to create interesting synergies.
CBD should not be confused with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is a psychoactive substance and considered a drug due to the risks of addiction it engenders. It is also THC that sometimes gives cannabidiol such a bad reputation, wrongly.
CBD has only been authorized in France since 2018. Since then, the shops have continued to flourish and more and more French people no longer hesitate to buy products that contain it.
