Cannabidiol (known to many simply as CBD) is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid compound with immense therapeutic potential.
Through both scientific and clinical studies, it’s been shown CBD can be used to help treat a wide variety of conditions, including (but not limited to) anxiety; depression; nausea; insomnia; chronic pain; rheumatoid arthritis; PTSD; Alzheimer’s Disease; and alcoholism. Of course, we do not wish to make any medical statements, and encourage you to speak with your doctor if you’re suffering from any of these ailments.
It’s commonly thought that CBD gets you “high” or “stoned” but we assure you this isn’t the case. Even though CBD comes from a marijuana plant, this cannabinoid (which is a chemical naturally found in a marijuana plant) is naturally non-psychoactive. The feeling of being high comes from the mood-altering THC, another of the more than 85 cannabinoids found in a marijuana plant.
If you want to know more, we encourage you to watch Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s 2013 documentary, “Weed” which sees Gupta interview medical leaders, experts, growers and patients.
While watching the documentary, you’ll hear the story of Charlotte Figi, a young girl who was suffering from 300 seizures a week by the time she was just three years old. She was on seven different medications, but nothing was working.
Desperate to help their daughter discover relief, her parents turned to CBD oil – only to discover with amazement that it actually worked within minutes; little Charlotte now only has two or three seizures a month. Watch the documentary here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3IMfIQ_K6U
