CBD (Cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid and one of the most abundant constituents of hemp. CBD does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich hemp is non-intoxicating makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief without the cannabis high.
Medical trials suggest that CBD may help with pain, anxiety depression, acne, inflammation, muscle soreness, and may lower blood sugar levels in those with diabetes and heart disease. So far, scientists have isolated 113 of these special molecules, but a large number still remain.
