Monmouth's Ask The Doctor Jan-Feb 2019

What is CBD? Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous and medically proven therapeutic potential. CBD is the sibling of THC but without the psychoactive effects. People are using CBD to treat a wide range of conditions such as chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis and many other physical and mental struggles. Academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of CBD on these and other ailments. Scientists refer to CBD as a “promiscuous” compound because it confers therapeutic benefits in many different ways while tapping into how we function physiologically and biologically on a deep level. Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumor and neuro-protective qualities. Cannabidiol can change gene expression and remove beta amyloid plaque, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s, from brain cells.

There are multiple ways to ingest CBD: tincture, capsule, edible, and vape. The topical forms are equally efficacious. When shopping for CBD make sure to look for reputable stores where there should be an intense understanding of where the CBD is coming from, how it is tested, the quality, the potency of each product and how it interacts with the body.
