If you’ve ever listened in on the marijuana debate, chances are you’ve heard the term “CBD” thrown around. If you’ve never heard of CBD till now, you might be asking yourself, “What the heck is CBD?”
Simply put, Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than 60 cannabis compounds that has significant medical benefits. Unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD users can reap the medical benefits without the “high” or “stoned” feeling that THC creates. Cannabidiol may help any patient that is dealing with chronic or arthritis pain, anxiety, depression, inflammation, muscle spasms, nausea/vomiting, psychosis and any other condition, without feeling dysphoria or lethargy. In fact, CBD is believed to counteract the psychoactivity of THC, and this makes it an appealing option for patients looking for more natural treatments for their medical condition.
