Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a drug that dates back thousands of years. Currently, scientists and doctors around the world are testing and confirming the therapeutic properties of CBD. A safe and non-addictive substance, CBD is one of the more than one hundred "phytocannabinoids", which are exclusive to cannabis and give the plant its robust therapeutic profile. Below we can know details about what is cbd?

The CBD is closely related to another important medicinally active phytocannabinoid: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound causing psico actividad which is famous for cannabis. These are the two components of cannabis that have been most studied by scientists.

Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THC , CBD does not make a person feel "drugged" or intoxicated. This is because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.

The CBD may actually decrease or neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC , depending on the amount of each compound is consumed. Many people want the health benefits of cannabis without psychoactivity, or with less very little of it.

The fact that CBD is therapeutically potent and non-intoxicating, and easy to take as a CBD oil , makes it an attractive treatment option for those who are cautious when trying cannabis for the first time.


Many people are looking for alternatives to pharmaceuticals with severe side effects: medicine is more in tune with natural processes. By taking advantage of how we function biologically at a deep level, CBD can provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other conditions.

Extensive scientific research, largely by government - sponsored EE. UU., And the growing anecdotal accounts of patients and doctors highlight the potential of CBD as a treatment for a wide range of diseases, including (but not limited to):

- Autoimmune diseases (inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis)
- Neurological conditions (Alzheimer's, dementia, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Huntington's chorea, stroke, traumatic brain injury)
- Metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity)
- Neuropsychiatric disease (autism, ADHD , posttraumatic stress disorder, alcoholism)
- Gut disorders (colitis, Crohn's disease)
- Cardiovascular dysfunction (atherosclerosis, arrhythmia)
- Skin disease (acne, dermatitis, psoriasis).

The CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective effects and anticancer properties are being investigated in several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. A 2010 brain cancer study by California scientists found that CBD "increases the inhibitory effects of THC on the proliferation and survival of human glioblastoma cells." This means that CBD makes THC even more potent as an anticancer substance. Also in 2010, German researchers reported that CBD stimulates neurogenesis, the growth of new brain cells in adult mammals.
