Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most prominent compound in the cannabis plant, but unlike its more well-known counterpart, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it is non-psychoactive and doesn’t induce the feeling of being “high.”
CBD- rich cannabis can actually counter the effect of THC, making it an appealing treatment for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety and/or anti-spasm effects without disconcerting euphoria or lethargy.
Patients with more chronic conditions such as cancer and epilepsy often use medical cannabis oil extracted from high-CBD varieties of cannabis.
