There’s undoubtedly been a louder buzz around CBD in the past few years as it seems like every industry is eager to make use of or tout the benefits of Cannabidiol. With 113 chemical compounds found in cannabis, we’re here to tell you about this particular and prevalent one as we shift the focus to the non-psychoactive cousin of THC.

The second most prevalent active ingredient found in cannabis, Cannabidiol, affectionately known as CBD, was first discovered in the 1940s. As you see and hear about CBD popping up as a natural treatment for various conditions, it has become more popular in recent years. Typically sourced from hemp but also found in marijuana, hemp-derived CBD still contains trace amounts of THC, while marijuana-derived CBD may contain more.
With an array of options for consumers, CBD comes in many forms. Oils tend to be the most popular, but your selection isn’t limited to the additional options of extracts, capsules, tinctures, patches, vapes, bath bombs, topical preparations for use on skin, and many more.
Across the world, we’ve seen an uprise in the use of Cannabidiol, and although in the early stages of research, evidence leads to CBD is helpful for a wide variety of conditions, including:
On top of this list, CBD’s strongest scientific evidence is its effectiveness in treating some of the most barbaric childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which are typically not ones to respond to antiseizure medications. In the numerous studies conducted, CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures and, in some cases, stop them altogether. Epidiolex, which contains CBD, is the first cannabis-derived medication approved by the FDA for these conditions. So, can you say Go CBD?!

While THC and CBD are the two most prevalent chemical compounds in marijuana, CBG and CBD are hemp’s two most pervasive chemical components. Are you with us? Good! All three compounds belong to a group called cannabinoids, which is what gives cannabis its medical and recreational properties.
