As a therapeutic shining star, Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is the non-psychoactive chemical compound in cannabis that is quickly gaining traction for its medicinal benefits. Curious cannabis users tend to be most comfortable starting their journey with cannabis using high-CBD products, as its general response is a feeling of wellness or wellbeing - with none of the ‘high’ associated with THC.
CBD has been reported to be effective in treatment for inflammation, chronic pain, anxiety, psychosis, epilepsy & more. More notably, CBD is currently being researched for its cancer-fighting properties in a bid towards a more natural treatment than standard chemotherapy, which although life-saving, wreaks havoc on the body in the process (did you know that chemotherapy was discovered because of Mustard Gas? Enough said!). It’s also important to note that CBD-only cannabis products have shown promising results in various medicinal applications with children & animals due to its lack of psychedelic effects, as opposed to strains of cannabis high in THC, which make patients high.
Recently, CBD has been removed from the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) banned substances list for 2018, allowing for its use by professional athletes for pain management & muscle recovery without interfering with performance – a huge step forward for cannabis normalization.
