CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a cannabis compound that has gained mainstream acclaim for its medical benefits, but does not have the same psychoactive components of THC that make people feel “stoned”, and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
CBD has proven to provide such significant relief for a variety of physical and brain health issues, even Forbes is writing about its abilities to replace prescription drugs.
Many of our patients are new cannabis users, and while every patient experience is unique, we often start with a personalized recommendation for a CBD product or strain.
The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for our patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, seizures, and muscle spasms.
A slew of recent scientific research highlights CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including: arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, and epilepsy. CBD’s anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and around the world.
