Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
Scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the US government—underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high doses.
Full-Spectrum versus Isolate CBD
When you are purchasing CBD products, you have two options: full-spectrum CBD or isolate (‘regular’) CBD.
Full-spectrum CBD as hemp oil contains every cannabinoid present in the cannabis plant — cannabinol, cannabicyclol, tetra hyrdocannabivarin, and cannbichromevinaric acid, to name a few. Different cannabinoids introduce various potential benefits addressing a wide variety of ailments, both on their own, and in conjunction with one another, and with CBD.
These full-spectrum products may also contain small amounts of THC. Still, it should be said that industrial hemp is regulated at 0.3% THC concentration, which will generally not cause psychoactive effects. Full spectrum CBD is created by extracting the whole source plant to oil, which brings all of the other properties and molecules along with it.
