What are the benefits of CBD?
Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring substance found in cannabis. However, CBD does not cause any of the psychoactive effects that come from another active ingredient found in the plant: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The health benefits of the plant extract continue to be examined, and the World Health Organization states that CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. The CBD retail industry is already flourishing, with a wide range of products marketed as treatments for chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.Consumer sales of cannabidiol products in the United States are projected to surpass one billion U.S. dollars for the first time in 2020. ]]>
