It seems like CBD is showing up everywhere these days, and people are talking about it. There has been significant media coverage and quite the buzz about its possible benefits to everything from epilepsy to chronic pain. Everybody wants to feel better, that’s natural. In fact, if they can do so naturally, it is even better. That is where CBD comes in, and, as it is quite likely you will come into contact with CBD in some way today, here is an easy introduction to what you need to know about CBD.
Opinions have dramatically shifted in recent years in regard to Cannabis, and that is where we have to start this overview. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannibinol) , CBD (cannabidiol) is a completely non-psychoactive compound derived from the Cannibis Sativa plant. CBD is derived from hemp plants, THC comes from marijuana plants, they are cousins. CBD has become a popular option for people seeking natural options that may help for a variety of conditions from the mental to the physical.
Despite initial skepticism, ranging from the simple fact that it is a Cannibis compound to the astonishing scope of its healing potential in a wide variety of medical conditions, the research and anecdotal evidence lined up to indicate that CBD may help people. After years of little to no research, studies revealed that cannabis may have many medicinal applications, including anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiolitic properties.
The World Health Organization (WHO) published a report that indicated that CBD is not addictive and has no potential for abuse or dependence. This is largely due to the absence of addictive substances, THC differs in this regard although both are cannabinoids. Simply put, CBD will not get you high, but it may make you feel better.
CBD has shown possible benefits to depression, insomnia, anxiety, PTSD, epilepsy, and chronic pain. Studies are continuing and the possible benefits of CBD are being uncovered with greater frequency.
Generally speaking, CBD is legal in all 50 states. It is legal at the federal level and in most states. Laws governing cannabis related issues are becoming less strict, but it is always advisable to research local and state statutes.
