What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. After THC (the psychoactive compound found in Cannabis), it is the second most prevalent and researched of the active ingredients of Cannabis. While CBD is an essential component of Medical Cannabis, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is high in CBD and low in THC. CBD itself, does not cause a ‘high’. According to a report from the World Health Organization, ‘In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential… To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.
How can CBD help me?
Aside from using CBD as a daily supplement to keep your body in a state of homeostasis (maintaining a stable, relatively constant internal environment), CBD is also known to assist with the treatment of anxiety, depression, inflammation, stress, insomnia and pain. With little known side-effects, CBD is undoubtedly the healthier and safer natural alternative treatment.
