CBD (aka CBD oil) is the main medicinal compound in cannabis. It has so many benefits to both body and brain, that it can be hard to believe it at first. Here are some of the testimonials I have heard first hand:
Arthritis: "I put CBD cream on my hands in the morning, and then I go can go all day. I don't feel any arthritis pain. It's wonderful." - an older gentleman I met at the hemp shop in Victoria.
Anxiety and Migraines: I also spoke recently to a woman who has had migraines for years, and was taking medications for anxiety. A month ago she started taking CBD oil, and now she is totally off the anxiety medications, and in 30 days she's had only two migraines.
CBD also creates more stable moods, reduces inflammation, lowers blood sugar, and can greatly reduce symptoms of PTSD, fibromyalgia, psoriasis and eczema, and is being researched for its effects on cancer and tumours. Yes, really!
CBD stands for "Cannabidiol" - CBD does not make you high. The other main compound in cannabis is THC, "The high causer", which does make you high. CBD can be purchased with or without THC.

The US Gov has literally had a patent on CBD for the last 30 years for it's neuro-protective qualities - but this is just a tiny bit of what it can do for us.
CBD oil has the following properties:
1. Axiolytic - reduces anxiety
4. Anti-oxidant - slows aging
6. Reduces pain
7. Lowers blood sugar
9. And may be cancer preventive
But how can CBD do all this?
The answer lies in the newly discovered "Endo-Cannabinoid System", or ECS for short, which was discovered fairly recently.

A final note: When buying CBD, its wise to get it from a high quality source that has been tested for purity. I've even heard that some CBD that's being sold today - isn't CBD at all. This is become the industry is rather new.
On that note, I have recently chosen to affiliate myself with a company that produces high quality, Organic CBD oil, out of Colorado, called Hempworx.
Hempworx makes CBD drops and a CBD pain-relief cream.
