THE ABC OF CBD OR THE IMPORTANCE OF CANNABIDIOL – Paul Hornby, PhD
Cannabidiol (CBD) holds a greater medical future than Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) although they work synergistically in being effective against many illnesses; CBD has a profound efficacy with only small amounts of THC needed.
The greatest difference between THC and CBD is that THC is psychoactive and can lead to a potentially unpleasant (non-fatal) overdose, whereas this effect does not occur with CBD. Cannabidiol has been shown clinically to be a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory and also brings about pain relief with a marked reduction in anxiety.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is normally recommended as a daytime medicine for mental clarity, focus and anxiolytic properties as well as anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-convulsent (epilepsy) effects.
