CBD stands for Cannabidiol, and it’s one of the compounds derived from hemp and cannabis (marijuana) plants. Unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is not psychoactive, so it doesn’t cause the ‘high’ feeling. On the contrary, it has been found to have a wide range of benefits in the medical world. To name but a few, CBD may be used in managing anxiety, chronic pain, opioid addiction, and depression.
Numerous research results also suggest that CBD products may be used to treat various diseases and conditions. These include epilepsy, degenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s, acne, high blood pressure, diabetes, and even cancer.
The best CBD products come in all shapes and forms. The most common forms are CBD oil tinctures, CBD gummies, CBD softgels, CBD topicals (creams, serum, lip balm, lotion, etc.), capsules, and cookies, and treats (for pets).
