What is Cbd?
CBD (also commonly known as Cannabidiol) has become increasingly popular over the past few years and with all the excitement about it online, you might find yourself wondering what it is and if it can help you.
The simple explanation is that CBD (Cannabidiol) is a natural chemical compound that is derived from the cannabis plant and it provides significant health benefits. To name a few, CBD has been proven to reduce pain and inflammation, is helpful in reducing anxiety and depression, reduces risks of diabetes, has a positive effect on cholesterol, lowers risks of cardiovascular disease, reduces risks of cancer, helps maintain brain health, protects against bone disease, broken bones and aids in the treatment of arthritis, protects and heals the skin, and the list goes on and on. Thousands upon thousands of medical studies have been conducted showing all of the health benefits that CBD has to offer. (Links Below)
One of the main reasons that CBD is gaining in popularity is the fact that all of the THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) has been removed which means that it will not produce any mind-altering psychoactive effects or get you “high” as a result of use. This makes CBD an ideal option for patients looking for relief of symptoms without needing to worry about lethargy or other mind-altering side effects of traditional cannabis.
