Health benefits of CBD without THC

Some people believe all the medicinal benefits of taking a cannabis product comes from the combination of THC and CBD, without understanding that THC and CBD effects the body differently and can work effectively independently of each other.

THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) the most famous primary active ingredient found in the cannabis plant. At very low doses, THC acts as a mild sedative, but at high doses, it has hallucinogenic intoxicating effects.

Another active ingredient in the cannabis plant that doesn’t have the intoxicating “the high” effects of THC is CBD (Cannabidiol). CBD products have become more accessible and have been known for its health and wellness benefits.

Government deregulation of cannabis has allowed this plant and more specifically CBD to be studied. Recent studies that have found CBD to be helpful with the following aliments:
