Cannabis CBD

 

Cannabis has more than 100 cannabinoids.  However, there are 2 that are produced in great measure – both Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the chemical from the cannabis plant that causes the marijuana “high”. CBD has no psychotropic effects by itself. Patients experiencing anxiety, insomnia, spasticity, and report many benefits from using CBD.

There are multiple ways to get CBD into the body such as inhalation of the cannabis vapor or smoke.  It can also be supplied as a CBD oil. It is very effective in relieving chronic pain.

Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability in the United States. Medical marijuana is an alternative to traditional pain-relieving medications, including opioids. Marijuana eases certain types of chronic pain, including pain resulting from nerve damage and inflammation.
