WHAT IS CBD?

CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol, is a natural chemical compound that comes from the hemp plant. It is one of over 113 compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. However, CBD is not a psychotropic cannabinoid like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), nor does it produce intoxication or euphoria.

Our CBD products are not designed for replacing traditional medications. CBD has not yet gone under FDA review. However, despite the underwhelming research on cannabis, signs indicate that CBD may turn out as a good medical alternative.

Patients with an anxiety disorder are advised to avoid cannabis and marijuana, as THC can increase anxiety, panic or nervousness in some people. However, a new study proposes that cannabidiol, or CBD, may counter those effects. The part of marijuana that possibly causes anxiety or panic in some people is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly referred to as THC. CBD oil is nonpsychotropic, meaning it won't cause the user to feel "stoned" or intoxicated. Current studies are investigating how CBD may have an effect on the following conditions:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder

  • Panic disorder

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Social anxiety disorder

There is some evidence that CBD may help people to quit smoking. A double-blind pilot study tested 24 heavy smokers and gave one half of the group an inhaler containing CBD and the other half, an inhaler containing a placebo. They were instructed to use the inhaler when they felt a craving to smoke. Over the course of the study, the subjects recorded their cravings for tobacco and their anxiety levels daily. A follow-up interview that took place 21 days after the treatment revealed that cigarette consumption in the CBD group had gone down by 40 percent when compared to the placebo group.
