CBD is a key ingredient in cannabis CBD is one of over 60 compounds found in cannabis that belong to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied.CBD and THC levels tend to vary among different plants. Marijuana grown for recreational purposes often contains more THC than CBD.However, by using selective breeding techniques, cannabis breeders have managed to create varieties with high levels of CBD and next to zero levels of THC. These strains are rare but have become more popular in recent years. CBD is non-psychoactive Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. While this makes CBD a poor choice for recreational users, it gives the chemical a significant advantage as a medicine, since health professionals prefer treatments with minimal side effects.CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same pathways as THC. These pathways, called CB1 receptors, are highly concentrated in the brain and are responsible for the mind-altering effects of THC.A 2011 review published in Current Drug Safety concludes that CBD “does not interfere with several psychomotor and psychological functions.” The authors add that several studies suggest that CBD is “well tolerated and safe” even at high doses. CBD reduces the negative effects of THC Numerous studies suggest that CBD acts to reduce the intoxicating effects of THC, such as memory impairment and paranoia.CBD also appears to counteract the sleep-inducing effects of THC, which may explain why some strains of cannabis are known to increase alertness.Both CBD and THC have been found to present no risk of lethal overdose. However, to reduce potential side effects, medical users may be better off using cannabis with higher levels of CBD.

CBD has a wide range of medical benefits
Although CBD and THC act on different pathways of the body, they seem to have many of the same medical benefits. According to a 2013 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, studies have found CBD to possess the following medical properties:
Unfortunately, most of this evidence comes from animals, since very few studies on CBD have been carried out in human patients.
CBD is currently being synthesised by pharmaceutical companies whereby the benefits are stripped through processing. We offer 100% organic CBD which is rare on the market and fully lab tested and approved before sale. Click here for lab test information.
