Cannabidiol (CBD) is dominant in hemp varieties and found in small percentages in all cannabis, just like THC. The CBD market has an overabundance of misinformation, inaccurate dosing and application suggestions, so it is imperative to look at the products you choose, evaluate the label claims and most importantly, educate yourself!
CBD typically requires significantly larger doses than a cannabinoid like THC to produce desired physiological effects, especially in oral forms.
CBD is not known to produce any mind-altering or psychotropic affect but therapeutically CBD has shown properties such as, being an anxiolytic, analgesic, sleep aid, antipsychotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, neuroprotective, anti-arthritic, antispasmodic and much more. CBD has shown to have greater affect when used with THC versus when used alone.
Cannabidiol can be used to counteract the negative effects of THC; those who are sensitive to THC could benefit from using a higher ratio of CBD to THC.
