CBD, or cannabidiol, is another phytocannabinoids found in marijuana. It’s one of just a handful of known cannabinoids in marijuana plants and makes up more than 40% of the extract of cannabis. As the name suggests, it does not have any psychoactive properties like most other marijuana constituents. It’s not yet approved by the FDA but is believed to be an effective pain reliever and has recently been investigated in clinical trials as a potential cancer treatment. There is currently no clinical evidence that it causes addiction or that it affects the brain.Learn more about us at CBD American Shaman of Las Colinas
In tests done on animals, it was shown that very high doses of CBD helped prevent neurodegeneration in the brain and reduced the incidence of tumours in laboratory animals. CBD has also been used to treat spasticity and muscle spasms in Parkinson patients. But it may also help prevent or reduce inflammation in patients with arthritis. And it may also be able to prevent depression and anxiety in people who have had traumatic events. However, it’s not clear how CBD affects the development of tumors in the body. It’s also unclear if CBD can prevent cancer in humans.
But what is clear is that there are many medical benefits from CBD, and the clinical trials into its medicinal uses are ongoing in several countries. CBD seems to be a safe drug and it is being investigated for its potential benefits in the treatment of depression, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease. More clinical trials are planned to explore its potential to help those with anxiety disorders. As for whether CBD is addictive, no definitive answer is yet available.
