Even as the popularity of CBD and medical marijuana continues to rise, there is still a large section of the populace who are unaware of CBD and its benefits, while some others still hold firm their age-long believe that marijuana in any form being in the same league as drug use.
No doubt, the abuse of THC rich marijuana is sure to produce psychoactive reactions but the lesser-known constituent of the hemp plant (CBD) is highly therapeutic and produces no psychoactive reactions like THC.

So, what is CBD?

To explain this, we have chosen to take a holistic view of all the verbiage you might have been exposed to in search of what CBD really stands for.

CBD, THC and the Hemp Plant

The hemp plant is a wild weed of the cannabis Sativa species. The plant was first cultivated for food and its fibre. Since the discovery of its therapeutic potency, the plant has been massively cultivated for medicine.
Before the early 1940s (when it was first discovered that the hemp plant had therapeutic properties), the plant was used in a variety of industrial processes. However, since the discovery of its medical efficacy, several researchers have expounded on the original proposition of the first scientists who discovered the healing properties of the plant, leading us up to the present day.

Today, the hemp plant, the world over, is a symbol of freedom, creativity and healing.

The hemp plant is made up of several constituents and it is these constituents that are responsible for its healing properties. Some of the constituents (sometimes referred to as derivatives) include; CBD, CBN, CBG, THC and over 90 other substances.
CBD;  Cannabidiol is one of the many derivatives of the hemp plant. This substance, when extracted from the hemp plant, is very effective in the treatment and management of several pain ailments, seizures and a host of other ailments that affect the human body.
Further researches into its use spectrum have shown promises in its use on pets. CBD produces no psychoactive reactions on the user and researchers have agreed that it has no adverse effects and presents no danger to users.
THC; This is the most common constituent of the hemp plant. The substance is also highly therapeutic but it is this substance that produces the “high” derived when marijuana is consumed in some forms. THC is by quantity often the largest known constituent in any hemp species and in spite of its ability to induce psychoactive reactions; it is still required for treatment in certain ailments.
FDA Until recently, the positive stories of CBD healings were often regarded as fiction or psychological healings (the placebo effect comes to mind), but since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Advisory panel (FDA) unanimously recommended approval of the CBD medication Epidiolex to treat two rare forms of childhood epilepsy, the response has become overwhelming. More people are turning to CBD for the hope of a cure for some of the world’s well-known ailments that have defied medical science.
