Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a naturally occurring primary compound in hemp.
CBD is a cannabinoid, but its effects on the body and mind are markedly different from THC. CBD is completely non-psychoactive and blocks some of the intoxicating effects of THC. There is mounting evidence that hemp-derived extracts containing CBD provides anti-inflammatory and analgesic benefits.
Physicians are increasingly recommending CBD as a alternative therapy for relief of pain, inflammation, stress, and anxiety.
In particular, CBD appears to provide significant benefit in patients with chronic pain.
