Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD (CBD), is a natural extract of cannabis or regular cannabis. Recently, STEVE has become so popular in the United States that it is difficult to imagine a place where it is not sold, or diseases that they do not treat. According to users, they take it for muscle pain, arthritis and anxiety. CBD helps with epilepsy and post-traumatic stress disorder. Cannabidiol is even added to pet food. There is, for example, CBD oil for dogs - with a bacon flavor, of course.
Despite the popularity of cannabidiol and evidence of its benefits, no large-scale controlled studies of its effectiveness have been conducted. However, as noted by Igor Grant, Dean of the faculty of psychiatry and Director of the center for medical cannabis research at the University of California, there are undoubtedly prospects for the use of the substance in medicine. The scientist refers to several small studies that suggest that CBD can have soothing, anti-inflammatory and antipsychotic properties, as well as bring a positive result in the treatment of schizophrenia.
"Cannabidiol probably has an anti-inflammatory effect, can help with intestinal inflammation, such as Crohn's disease or neurological diseases," explains the scientist.
