CBD, which is extracted from the hemp/marijuana plants, has powerful anti-oxidant effects (as well as other medicinal benefits) without the psychoactive effects traditionally associated with pot consumption. While it was originally observed to have a dramatic effect in reducing seizures, of late its use has increased dramatically because A) it is, unlike its marijuana-derived cousin, THC, completely legal; and B) it has a wide range of effects and healing properties on the human body. While CBD does not have an intoxicating effect (i.e. you won’t get “high”), it has been shown to have a positive effect on a persons mood and general feeling of well-being. In addition to improving your mood, CBD also reduces inflammation, high blood pressure, helps with insomnia, as well as anxiety. The list of its benefits is growing as more study is devoted to the method whereby CBD interacts with the body’s systems. Last, but not least, on the CBD hits parade: it is not habit forming!
- Though CBD is derived from hemp, it doesn’t have the same psychoactive effects as THC
- Much like THC it has excellent anti-inflmatory properties, a key to anti-cancer remedies
- CBD is an adaptogen, meaning it can adapt to multiple situations be it for neurological issues, pain or other need areas.
