Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid, a natural chemical compound found in cannabis plants that interacts with the endocannabinoid system in humans and other mammals. The endocannabinoid system regulates various cognitive and physiological processes – such as mood, sleep, and pain-sensation.

CBD products come from hemp, a cousin of the marijuana plant. A common misconception is that CBD makes people feel ‘high’, but this is factually incorrect. Another cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is responsible for the psychoactive high that occurs when people smoke or consume marijuana. CBD does not produce the same effect. CBD products come from hemp, a type of cannabis plant with relatively low concentrations of THC (no more than 0.3%) and higher concentrations of CBD. Marijuana in contrast contains low concentrations of CBD and higher concentrations of THC.

The Harvard Medical School health blog states –

“CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep. CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat.”
