CBD 101 (Part 1)

by Darell Bester

Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of the natural cannabinoids compounds present in the cannabis plant. Today, you can find CBD on the shelves of many pharmacies and gas stations across the states. But what makes CBD special and causing people to look at its uses to help provide some comfort in their lives?

CBD is highly regarded as a pain reliever that many athletes swear by, but there are those in the medical community that have their doubts. This hasn't stopped the use of CBD. Everyday there is someone looking to CBD to help give them a feeling of calm and relaxation. Heavier dosages can be found in a lot of you medical marijuana.

A fact about CBD is that it doesn't get you high. 

Findings from preclinical and clinical research studies show that CBD has strong anti-convulsing, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-depressant, anti-tumor, anti-psychotic, and neuroprotective properties. According to a research published on Oct 2018, (From Leaf Report)

CBD has shown to help with anxiety, chronic pain, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, PTSD, MS, and cardiovascular disease. There is so much more research to be done to discover all of the true potential of this extract.

The main difference between CBD (Cannabinol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is one gets you high the other doesn't. Now we could go deep into why this is, but I am going to save that for part 2. Until then.

Always with Luv,
