Cannabidiol (CBD), is one of over 60 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD has little-to-no psychoactive effects and can be beneficial for nausea, arthritis, cancer, seizures, pain and much more. THC is known for its ability to haze the mind, but CBD provides medical applications and a clear headed practicality for those on-the-go. Once extracted from the cannabis plant and isolated, CBD can be infused into a variety of products such as topicals, oils and tinctures.

CBD dominant strains also exist, with little-to-no THC content for those who enjoy the fast-relief of smoking without the psychoactive effects. A few CBD dominant strains are Charlotte’s Web, R4, Sour Tsunami, Pennywise, and Harlequin. Cannabidiol was created back in 1940 and is only one of the 113 recognised cannabinoids in cannabis plants. It accounts for about 40% of the plant extract. Some clinical research carried out in 2018 revealed that CBD may have some therapeutic uses for disorders that are related to cognition, anxiety, pain, and movement.

CBD can be used in a few different ways. One of the most popular ways to inhale cannabis smoke or vapour, but also to spray an aerosol into the cheek or mouth. CBD research is still ongoing, but it is known to be safe, not considered to be addictive, and non-psychoactive. CBD if vastly different from THC in that it doesn’t make the user feel high. CBD and THC function on different brain receptors, and it is even recognised that CBD neutralises the THC effects.

Many people will turn to CBD if they want the therapeutic benefits, but don’t want to feel stoned. It is known as the multi-purpose molecule. It is used in autoimmune diseases such as arthritis, neurological conditions such as alzheimer’s, parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, huntington’s, stroke, and brain inury.
