Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound in the cannabis plant that has generated significant interest among scientists and physicians in recent years. CBD naturally restores the body to cellular homeostasis through the human endocannabinoid system (ECS).
CBD is most famous for relieving pain, reducing inflammation, reducing sleep problems, and relieving anxiety. However, the list of medical conditions CBD can aid is endless. (Refer do image above)
Unlike Marijuana products (which contain high levels of psychoactive THC and low levels of CBD), CBD products are extracted from Hemp stalk and flower (which contains high levels of CBD and very low levels of THC).
It’s important to know that although THC and CBD are the most studied components of cannabis, there are many more chemical compounds found within the plant, such as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabidivarin (CBDV), tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), terpenes, and flavonoids. While there is still much to learn about these other chemicals, researchers in Israel have discovered that full spectrum cannabis extracts that contain these other chemicals are more beneficial than isolated extracts that contain just CBD or THC.
