What is CBD?
Cannabidiol also known as Cannabidiol or CBD is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits but does not make people feel “high” and can counteract the psycho activity of THC (THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects). The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from an array of ailments. To name a few, inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, acne and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
Scientific and clinical research also evidence CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, heart health, alcoholism, insomnia, MS, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high doses.
