with encouraging results.
Everyone from researchers to doctors to the public at large is learning more about cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD) with each passing day. As a result, individuals suffering from various chronic conditions might be encouraged by results from studies that show the possible therapeutic value of CBD in mitigating these issues.
What Exactly Is CBD?
CBD is one of more than 120 known cannabinoids (natural compounds found in cannabis plants such as hemp and marijuana) known for its potential nutritional value. CBD does not have the psychoactive properties that THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is known for, but it has been found by the National Institutes of Health to have potential nutritional and therapeutic value with antioxidant and neuroprotective properties.
Significant amounts of CBD can be found in cannabis plants, whether they be marijuana or hemp. In fact, hemp naturally has low amounts of THC and high amounts of CBD, which makes it of great interest to researchers because the low-THC/high-CBD ratios most closely resemble those found in cannabis growing wild in nature.
