Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits but unlike it’s counterpart THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it does not make people feel “high”. The fact that the CBD rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from a number of health issues. CBD also has demonstrable neuro-protective and neurogenic effects and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated.


Overall the benefits of CBD while numerous, still have not been fully discovered. However as time and technology continues to advance so do the possibilities of being able to irradiate the very conditions that seem to cripple us.


Medical Benefits

There are so many different health benefits to taking CBD, many of which are still to be discovered. However what is known to date is that it can help individuals who are experiencing excessive nausea and vomiting because they are going through chemotherapy or some other type of treatment. It is also great at suppressing seizures that are experienced on a frequent basis. Other benefits include but are not limited to helping to combat anxiety, inflammation, aggression, digestive issues, diabetes, depression and degenerative disorders.

CBD is Not Psychoactive

Contrary to popular belief, products such as CBD oil or CBD capsules are not going to get you high. The CBD in these products, or the CBD you find in cannabis is not going to make you feel the same as the THC does. It is THC, which is a psychoactive substance, not CBD. It does not act in the same manner when it comes into contact with your brain’s pathways. It does not interfere with your psychomotor or psychological functions either. In short, CBD is 100% safe and is not going to get you high.

CBD Limits THC Effects

It is interesting to note that the strains of cannabis that only contain a lot of THC are the ones that cause people to feel sleepy, disoriented and “high”. Many users who use the cannabis straings that contain a high amount of CBD comment that they do not suffer the same symptoms. In fact, some claim to feel more alert. This is because the CBD is counteracting the impact of the THC on your body, rendering those strains of cannabis relatively harmless too.
