Cannabidiol (CBD)

November 11, 2018

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 naturally occurring chemical constituents found in the cannabis plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the most abundant component in cannabis, CBD does induce a psychoactive effect, or “high,” and has been used medicinally for decades.

Acting upon the body’s cannabinoid receptors, the application or consumption of CBD may provide pain relief or reduce inflammation.

A new wave of interest into the health benefits of CBD, from both the medical community and the public at large, has spurred an acceleration in the rate and breadth of research.
