CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, the cannabinoid second only to THC when it comes to average volume. Recently, research has shown CBD to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties without the psychoactive effects (the “high” or “stoned” feeling) that THC provides. While high THC strains often tout levels of over 20%, generally, CBD levels of over 4% are considered to be high.
Who Do These Cannabis Strains Help?
It was initially thought that cannabidiol’s main function was to counter the psychoactive effects of THC, but more evidence seems to show that medically, CBD packs quite a punch on its own. It looks to be especially promising for conditions that are difficult to treat such as Crohn’s disease, PTSD, and multiple sclerosis. Lately, it is one of the rarest of these conditions, Dravet’s Syndrome, that is getting a lot of attention from both the medical community and the public.
CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol, a prominent naturally occurring cannabinoid found in cannabis that comprises up to 40% of the plant. Cannabidiol is ‘a cannabinoid devoid of psychoactive effect.’ After THC (Delta9tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is by far the most studied cannabinoid. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
