CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of over 100 identified cannabinoids (a special class of chemical compounds) in the cannabis plant. CBD and THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, are the two primary compounds that have been investigated in medical research.
Of all of CBD’s possible applications, the one garnering the most attention is the dramatic effect it has on young patients suffering from severe forms of epilepsy. The story of Charlotte Figi, a young girl who went from 300 seizures a week to just a few with daily doses of a CBD tincture, has turned CBD into a media sensation and industry buzzword.
Studies have shown CBD to have the following notable therapeutic benefits:
In addition, there is evidence that CBD may act as a neuroprotectant â that is, able to stem neurological damage following strokes and in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimerâs and Parkinsonâs â and may play a role in neurogenesis, the creation of new brain cells.
Numerous studies have shown CBDâs promise in the treatment of a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to:
CBD acts on different pathways than THC in the body, complementing THCâs effects on the same symptoms when administered together. In addition, CBD counters the psychoactivity of THC, making it ideal for patients who cannot handle too much THC and who respond sufficiently to CBD for their medical condition.
TIPS FOR SAFE & EFFECTIVE USE
For Oral Consumption:
Keep an eye on the dispenser markers as you secrete the oil. Start with a drop half the size of a grain of rice, two or three times a day. Gradually increase dosage at a rate no higher then 0.5 mg of main active ingredient (THC or CBD) per pound of body weight in order to avoid experiencing side effects (drowsiness, impaired motor skills, euphoria and/or anxiety). High dose regiments typically used for instances involving serious pain, sleep disorders, cancer and/or epilepsy tend to be within 1 to 2 mg of main active ingredient per pound of body weight per day.
Keep an eye on the dispenser markers as you secrete the oil. 1/10 of an applicator (20mg) is an average dose.
