CBD stands for cannabidiol or cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are a group of closely relates compounds that act on cannabinoid receptors in the cells of the body, unique to cannabis, also known as hemp. The body creates compounds called endocannabinoids, while hemp produces phytocannabinoids. According to a 2013 review in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, cannabinoids were found to have positive physiological effects on nausea, seizure, depression, some types of cancer, and inflammation.
CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.
CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat.
