All about cannabidiol (CBD)

What is CBD?

 

CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of the major chemical compounds in cannabis responsible for some of cannabis’s beneficial effects. CBD is non-psychoactive

so it does not produce an intoxicating high. This means someone can benefit from CBD and still go about their day’s activities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What are the benefits of CBD supplementation?

 

CBD appears to help people in a variety of ways but no research indicates that it treats or prevents any diseases or illnesses.

 

Some people use CBD to help them cope with anxiety, difficulty sleeping, gastrointestinal issues, inflammation, and more.

 

 

 

Is CBD safe?

 

The WHO organization has expressed that Cannabidiol (CBD) is safe and has low potential for abuse

and so should not be considered a controlled (scheduled) substance. WHO is one of the, if not the, most authoritative health organizations in the world.

 

 

 

 

Does CBD have any side effects?

 

More research needs to be done but early research suggests that CBD is relatively safe. There are concerns about it changing how certain medications are processed by the liver. If you’re taking a medication that is processed by your liver we strongly recommend that you do not try hemp flower until you’ve discussed it with your physician.
