What Is CBD Oil?

BY: Rachel Wellendorf

THC was first isolated by Raphael Mechoulam in 1964. Since then, researchers and developers have delved into the world of cannabinoids. CBD is one component of cannabis that has been researched almost as much as THC. CBD is the most studied non-psychoactive cannabinoid at this point.

There are over 100 known cannabinoids. Of these, some well-known cannabis constituents are: CBN, CBG, and CBC. I presume that over the next 10 years, even more research will come out to further distinguish these molecules and their potential to help people (and animals) across the globe.

Working in a dispensary, I commonly get asked “what CBD oil do you have?” The truth is, CBD oil is a slightly outdated term. Nowadays, there are countless edible, concentrate and flower options for patients and customers to choose from.

All of the following are available at Green Dream Cannabis:

CBD Concentrates and Tinctures:

Lucky Turtle Lemon Restore Tincture

Dosing per package: 500mg CBD, 9mg THC

Creature Comfort

Benefits of the product: THCA is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. Your pet can get a taste of the synergistic effect without experiencing any psychotropic effects.
