What is CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.
Many people are seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals with harsh side effects – medicine more in synch with natural processes. By tapping into how we function biologically on a deep level, CBD can provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other conditions.
Extensive scientific research – much of it sponsored the U.S. government – and mounting anecdotal accounts from patients and physicians highlight CBD’s power as a potential treatment for a wide range of maladies, including (but not limited to):
• Relieve pain
• Reduce inflammation
• Reduce anxiety
• Help to fight cancer
• Treat some neurological disorders and seizures
• Relieve nausea
• Promote good sleep/help with insomnia
• Promote cardiovascular health
