What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many cannabinoid molecules produced by cannabis, second only to THC in abundance. These plant-derived cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids (phyto = plant in Greek), are characterized by their ability to act on the cannabinoid receptors that are part of our endocannabinoid system.

CBD is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from a myriad of conditions, including inflammation, pain, anxiety, stress, spasms, and others without the stimulating or psychoactive effects of THC. These properties make it especially attractive as a therapeutic agent.
