Do Not Be Fooled!
Scientific cannabinoid research shows cannabis may have medical applications for several conditions, including PTSD. It would be a mistake to discount the benefits people are experiencing using CBD because you are misguided or holding onto misinformation about this compound. It is a mistake to think CBD is the same thing as the, in many jurisdictions, illicit drug Marijuana, which due to the presence of THC is psychoactive (mind-altering), causing a “high”.
Unlike cannabis products containing THC, Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from either hemp or cannabis sativa and is a non-psychoactive compound of the plant. In other words, CBD does not have any mind-altering abilities or get the user “high”. Instead, cannabinoid research shows how CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the body and can promote homeostasis.
Listed below are conditions positively indicated with cannabis derived products used medicinally. The website www.ProjectCBD.org has categorized this research by compiling of hundreds of peer-reviewed articles from scientific journals. Most of the papers sourced are from PubMed.gov, the online service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine. In addition to these highly technical reports, there are articles from O’Shaughnessy’s as well as a few stories from general interest publications.
