Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is one of the fastest-growing products and industries growing today. But what exactly is CBD?
It is derived from Hemp or Marijuana, CBD contains no THC meaning that it does not get you "high" or "buzzed" in any way like Cannabis does. This means that you can get all of the benefits of medical marijuana without actually having to consume a substance that has psychoactive properties.
How CBD can help you? There is still much research ongoing regarding its efficacy for a variety of different chronic illnesses and ailments but the current verdict is promising. CBD is taken regularly by the patients suffering from chronic pain, anxiety/depression, trouble sleeping or insomnia, as an appetite stimulator, to name a few.
