The Real Deal About CBD as a Miracle Compound

Cannabis, hemp, marijuana, ganja, and weed are the popular terms people use when referring to the seven-leaf plant that intoxicates the mind. Many people also claim that cannabis is a “cure” for certain diseases such as cancer. This statement is not true. Cannabis is helpful, but its ability to give relief to people is caused by one compound called cannabidiol or CBD.

CBD is only one out of hundreds of substances inside the cannabis plant. This is the non-psychoactive compound of the plant that makes it possible for users to find relief. Again, cannabis as a whole cannot heal nor cure a disease, but CBD can help in managing the symptoms.

Many scientific studies has proven that CBD can relieve chronic pain and anxiety. But the benefits of CBD do not end there. Turn to the list below and find out how cannabidiol can help you.

Cannabidiol can: 

  • Alleviate Cancer Symptoms

  • Fight Stress, Anxiety, and Depression

  • Improve Heart Health

  • Inhibits Neuropathic Pain

  • Manage Acne and Other Skin Diseases

  • Promote Good Sleep

  • Relieve Body Pain

  • Reduce Epileptic Seizures (for Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome)

  • Reduce Inflammation

  • Support Treatment for Addiction

The Food and Drug Association approved a capsule comprised of pure CBD: Epidiolex. Regardless of its proven benefits, CBD is still under legal trials in different countries. Fortunately, Canada was one of the fist countries to legalize cannabis, including allowing products to circulate in the market.


Side Effects of CBD

There are very few side effects reported related to CBD. These may sometimes include:
