Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound of the hemp and cannabis plants. It is the most valuable non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis that is being used for its medicinal qualities. Due to the large amount of cannabidiol content in the CBD oil, it has proven effects on relieving pain and has multiple health benefits without the euphoric effect of getting you high.
Unlike the THC-dominant strains, CBD doesn’t get you stoned and is a great solution for patients looking for pain relief. The cannabidiol has reportedly helped users treat inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions.
But the marijuana plant also contains other powerful chemical compounds or “phytocannabinoids” that interact with the body’s cells and produce medical benefits. There are more than 85 cannabinoids currently found in marijuana. Even though some of them may eventually get you the feeling of being high, these compounds are valued for their medical properties.
We’ve created a detailed infographic that reveals the benefits of cannabinoids and how they can influence different medical conditions – from migraines to epilepsy to Alzheimer’s disease.
