CBD or Cannabidiol is a natural, completely non-toxic substance derived from hemp – Cannabis sativa (C. sativa). In contrast to THC, it has absolutely no psychoactive effects, in fact it even blocks the effects of THC. Therefore, it does not affect our consciousness, but significantly affects our health in a positive way.
The basic effect of CBD that everyone can easily spot in themselves is the improvement in the quality of sleep. But it’s just one of the few things CBD is helping against. And in fact, the least important one. A large number of studies investigating the positive neuro-protective effects of CBD have been ongoing in recent years. Cannabidiol fights not only anxiety, sleep disorders, muscle and bone pain, but also against a number of other serious health problems. Ongoing research shows significant effects against Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis or neuropathic pain.
Cannabidiol has years of proven and US FDA confirmed anti-epileptic effects. Products containing CBD are legal throughout the EU, available online and without a prescription. It is most commonly sold in the form of CBD oil, which is easy to use and allows the production of various concentrations – most commonly from 5% to 20% CBD in the total volume of oil. In addition to oil, you can encounter capsules, creams for skin application up to chewable candies on the market.
