What Is CBD?

Cannabidiol – CBD – is a compound in Cannabis that has medical effects but does not make people feel “stoned” and actually counters some of the effects of THC. The non-psychoactivity of CBD-rich Hemp makes it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety and anti-spasm effects without disconcerting euphoria or lethargy.

Scientific and clinical studies indicate that CBD could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including: rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, PTSD, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections and neurological disorders.

CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anti-cancer potential is currently being explored at several academic research centers in the U.S. and other countries.
