Want to know what the medical benefits of CBD oil are?

While CBD may be making headlines all over the world, its unique and life-changing properties have been well-known for some time. How much do you know about the benefits of CBD oil?
CBD – otherwise known as cannabidiol – is one of over 60 compounds found in marijuana, collectively known as cannabinoids.
CBD oil is on the cusp of changing millions of lives, but it still the subject of huge debates across the globe. One thing that needs to be made clear is that CBD products and drugs derived from CBD, do not contain any trace of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is the chemical is cannabis that gives users the high. Its side effects also include paranoia and nausea. Research has shown that CBD can actually offset these effects.
In fact, CBD is completely non-psychoactive. It does not act on the same pathways in the brain as THC does. These pathways are called CB1 receptors, and cause those smoking marijuana to have a mind-altering experience to varying degrees.
While high amounts of THC can cause the user to become ill, or black out – the human body does not experience any psychomotor or psychological dysfunctions on even high doses of CBD. In fact, according to several studies carried out, CBD is “well tolerated and safe” even if the dosage is increased. Medical cannabis has been grown to produce high levels of CBD and trace to zero amounts of THC.
Below is a list of the medical properties of CBD – which shows just how life changing the compound can be to the medical industry – and to the lives of millions of people across the world.

Anticonvulsant: Suppresses seizure activity
Antipsychotic: Combats psychosis disorders
