WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil has become a popular new natural product credited with helping treat a host of medical problems — everything from pain and sleeplessness to epileptic seizures and cancers.
But what exactly is it?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is derived from the hemp plant (the actual compound is taken from the mature hemp stock), which is the female version of the marijuana plant. Since it does not come from the actual marijuana plant, it has less than 0.3% THC concentration – and we actually go the extra mile as to extract any traces of THC from it to bring it to 0%. Because of this, you can reap the significant medical benefits without giving you that “high” feeling, and it can actually counteract the psychoactive nature of THC.
Scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the US government—underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including diabetes, MS, epilepsy, arthritis, chronic pain, PTSD, alcoholism, schizophrenia, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable anti-cancer properties which are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and globally. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at very high doses.
