Cannabidiol, or CBD cannabis flowers, is currently the subject of various researches. Possible therapeutic effects such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsive, antiemetic, anxiolytic or antipsychotic effects are discussed. Research on the medical effects of CBD is still in its infancy.
For a long time, cannabis breeders have focused on keeping the THC content as high as possible and as low as possible. For example, the CBD content of many common cannabis strains is less than 1%. However, the trend is currently in the opposite direction, breeding trying to minimize THC levels and increase CBD levels.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that presumably reduces and regulates the effects of THC (antagonist). CBD itself has a long list of possible medical properties that are currently being researched. Some of the most important and discussed attributes in the technique include for example: relief from chronic pain, inflammation, migraine, arthritis, seizures, epilepsy and schizophrenia . CBD is also a hot topic in cancer research.
