CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis.
While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. CBD is a component of and present in marijuana (one of hundreds), but by itself it does not cause a high.
According to a report from the World Health Organization, "In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD."
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
This quality makes CBD an ideal option for those who are looking for relief from pain and mental ailments such as anxiety, depression and inability to focus, without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs.
CBD is commonly used as a health supplement, not a medication, to address a range of human ailments, including anxiety and depression. And for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.
CBD also offers an option for treating different types of chronic pain and muscle aches.
Regular use of CBD as a supplement, along with a disciplined mental health routine and mindfulness can help people reduce or eliminate debilitating anxiety, alleviate depression, and increase focus and mental acuity.
