The world is a stage and CBD has found its audience…
With a continuing rise in popularity, (clearly evident in retail sales figures) encouraged by ease of access, an arsenal of products, and an estimated (U.S) market value in excess of $2 000 000 000, (oh yes there are 9 zero’s!)(representing an almost 700% rise since 2016), the pharmaceutical industry, general-physicians, their patients as well as other health professionals, seemingly see a bright future, in Cannabidiol.
No longer thought of as just another passing trend, or ‘by-product’ of its infamous counterpart THC, CBD (non-psychoactive) has evolved and emerged as THE alternative to conventional health related products.
B y now, there is no doubt that you would have seen or heard of Cannabidiol, better known as CBD.
CBD is a compound derived (using various extraction methods) from the Cannabis Hemp plant, that naturally contains a host of potentially medically useful chemical substances, that have an affinity towards the endocannabinoid system that triggers and modulates areas around the entire body. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning you will not experience the psychoactive effects associated with full spectrum cannabis tinctures that contain a high amount of THC. Pure CBD oils and isolate contain less than .3% THC. CBD Cannabis hemp plants are specifically cultivated for their high content of CBD, that counteracts the effects of thc.
