Cannabidiol (CBD), a non phsychoactive component of the cannabis plant is able to help treatment-resistant epileptic children with Dravet syndrom and related disorders. On August 11, 2013 Dr. Sanjay Gupta's nationally televised report on CNN discussed the astonishing transformation of Charlotte Figi, a 7 year old epileptic who had 300 "tonic-clonic" seizures a week until she ingested a CBD-infused tincture. She has been nearly seizure-free since her parents began giving her a daily dose of CBD. Nor is Charlotte an isolated case : dozens of families with children suffering from intractable epilepsy are reporting dramatic results with cannabidiol. A gifted...

Unlike THC, CBD does not cause 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 pathway as THC .  These pathways, called CBD 1 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 psycho motor and psychological functions.  the authors add that...

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely studied pain relieving constituent in the cannabis plant.Found both in the leaf and flower, CBD uniquely fills receptor sites throughout the body. CBD is also thought to "modulate" the effect of THC, reducing the anxiety and paranoia sometimes experienced by some patients.

CBD is a key ingredient in cannabis..

Andrea Soheily

 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...
