Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound which has huge medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that cannabis rich in CBD is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains which makes it a likable option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
Scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the government—underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has clearly apparent neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being studied at several academic research centers all over the globe. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high doses.
