Cannabidiol (CBD) is an incredible compound that was discovered in the 1940s with further functional understanding in the 1990s upon the discovery of the endocannabinoid system. As a non-psychotropic cannabinoid of cannabis, CBD doesn’t affect the CB1 receptors that result in intoxicating effects and give us that “high” feeling. It binds with CB2 receptors mainly found in our peripheral organs and immune system.
In a clinical human study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), CBD was found to have no significant potential for addiction or abuse with no adverse health effects [WHO study]. It is increasingly considered as a safe, natural alternative to over-the-counter and prescription medications without the risk of dependency. All the groundbreaking research is exciting! However, the cannabis sciences need further study to fully understand its benefits.

The most common reported uses for CBD are:

- Pain relief
- Regulating the immune system
- Alleviating stress in the limbic system (Related to emotional experiences of anxiety, depression, panic, fear, and mood disorders)
- Improving sleep
- Increasing healing speed
- Antioxidant support
- Neuroprotection (Prevents damage to the nervous system and brain; promotes neuron growth)
Users also report efficacy in helping with arthritis, chronic pain, PTSD, getting off severe opioid addictions, weight loss, and increasing recovery time and athletic performance. There is now a high focus of research and scientific evidential support for easing epileptic seizures.
