YOU SAY “CBD’S” I SAY CBD!

One of the very interesting observations I have made over recent years is that MANY people refer to Cannabidiol or CBD as “CBD’s”.

So, why do so many people know to say “THC” in the singular, as there is only ONE THC molecule, but with CBD is is often CBD’s?

I believe it is due to confusion by the term Cannabidnoids; A term that refers to the hundreds of major and minor cannabinoids, INCLUDING, CBD and THC. Singular….not plural.

Last year when I travelled to Israel, I noticed that many people there were saying “CBDIM”. IM, is the male pleural in Hebrew. So, it is exactly like saying CBD’s, but in Hebrew.

I find that when I hear the plural, it hurts my ears.

So, CBD is CBD and THC is THC

CBD’s would have to be some possessive conjugation of the word……

So, anyone out there from other countries? How do you guys pronounce CBD??
