Cannabidiol, or CBD, comes from the Cannabid Sativa Plant. This ingredient within the plant causes relaxation as it is not similar to it’s counter part, THC. THC causes the psychoactive side effects that you experience from marijuana. CBD does not cause any psychoactive side effects and does not get a person “high”. This is a common misconception with CBD and causes some people to become blind to the various benifits of this cannabinoid. Below I will take you through some of the major benefits of CBD.
The first benefit of CBD is that it can reduce chronic or short term pain. CBD has been shown to reduce inflammation and been seen interacting with neurotransmitters within the body. Many people in the fitness / sports industry suffer from back injuries that cause chronic back pain. CBD is well known for helping relive chronic back pain and allowing these athletes to perform at their highest level.
The next benefit is that CBD can help reduce anxiety and depression. With many medical tests, CBD has been proven to reduce anxiety in high stress environments. It also has been shown to increase moral in people that suffer from depression.
The last benefit is that is can help improve acne. With its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can help reduce acne and improve the overall quality of skin. These are just a few of the many benefits that CBD provides.
