Know the basics
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most therapeutic non-psychoactive cannabinoids of the hemp plant. It is:
- all natural
- completely safe to use
- legal worldwide
…and it is known for its muscle relaxing, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. Studies and real-life examples show CBD to be beneficial to an unbelievably large list of ailments.
Some of CBD’s properties are antiepileptic, antianxiety, antipsychotic, neuroprotective, vasorelaxant (lower blood pressure), antispasmodic, anti-ischemic, anti-cancer agent, antiemetic, antibacterial agent, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory.
Cannabis plants are usually high in THC (psychoactive) and low in CBD. CBD oil is derived from industrial hemp strains rich in CBD and low in THC (0,3% legal limit). Commonly, it’s called cannabis oil or weed oil when THC levels are higher.
Unfortunately, this is not legal everywhere in the US. This becomes problematic when treating diseases like cancer as the treatment requires high levels of THC and CBD combined. This creates an entourage effect so you can take benefit of the full-spectrum synergetics of these cannabinoids.
