Cannabidiol — CBD — is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC.
“Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 naturally occurring chemical constituents found in the cannabis plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the most abundant component of cannabis, CBD does not induce a psychoactive effect, or “high,” and has been used medicinally for decades,” MyCBD.org notes.
CBD products are generally available throughout the United States, as they are “technically” not illegal. While quality CBD can remove all of the THC – the measurement is usually if it is less and 0.3%.
The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing 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 US 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 demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.
Project CBD responds to inquiries from all over the world. Almost everyone wants to know where to get CBD-rich products and how to use them for maximum benefit. After decades in which only high-THC cannabis was available in North America and beyond, CBD-rich strains and products are now available to medical users.
