CBD is short for cannabidiol, a chemical that comes from marijuana and a sister plant, hemp. It’s not the chemical that makes people high. That’s THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, and it’s not legal for recreational use in Georgia. Many CBD products contain tiny amounts of a type of THC, but stay below the legal threshold.
