Understanding CBD

CBD... A Quick Lesson

Okay, it’s official – CBD-infused goods are more than a novelty item these days. If you’re looking for it, you can find CBD in just about everything: shampoos, moisturisers  chocolate, coffee, olive oil, vapes, and even pet treats.

CBD or cannabidiol is one of 113 compounds identified in the cannabis plant, and the most valuable. Although CBD is also synthetically produced, it is uncertain whether it works better on its own or with other cannabis compounds. However, one thing is undeniable, and that is its positive effects on both humans and pets. 

The Most Asked Question...

Unlike THC, CBD isn’t psychoactive (meaning it can’t get you high). Many people describe CBD as the “good” cannabinoid for its potential to treat a wide range of symptoms and illnesses. Proponents of CBD have noted its effectiveness in treating epilepsy, chronic pain, inflammation, PTSD, anxiety, depression, arthritis, psychosis, and even chronic additions. Academic research centers, such as the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research and the University of California San Diego, are taking a closer look at CBD for its potential anti-cancer properties. 

A 2019 study revealed that while 40 percent of people in their 20s have used CBD, so have 15 percent of people aged 60 and older. That’s pretty impressive!!

With a forecast estimated to reach over 700% growth by 2024.
