Exploring CBD as an Alternative to Traditional Medication
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a chemical found in cannabis plants. It is separate from THC, which is the chemical associated with the high people get from marijuana. When CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant, it can be used to treat a variety of illnesses and conditions.
Because of the stigma associated with marijuana, research on CBD has not been as plentiful as it could have been. Patients who have successfully used CBD have largely had to find this alternative on their own, although science is beginning to take notice of the chemical and its positive results for people.
Many patients who began using CBD to treat their illnesses have found it to be so successful that they have actually stopped taking traditional medications. Others use CBD in conjunction with prescribed medicine and treatments.
