The Healing Power of CBD

What is CBD?

The psychoactive compound in marijuana that gets you high is known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and has long been the plant's claim to fame. But the national conversation surrounding marijuana has seen a radical shift in recent years, and it's cannabidiol (CBD) that's the most talked about compound. The non-psychoactive compound is garnering significant attention for its medicinal properties, and is being used by doctors to treat chronic pain, anxiety, seizures, among many other ailments.

In this vibrant new field of study, there's more to learn every day. To learn about the current state of research, we spoke to Lex Pelger, one of New York City's most knowledgeable writers on the intersection of cannabis and health, about CBD and its medicinal and therapeutic effects.

We're hearing a lot of about cannabidiol of late. Is CBD the new miracle drug? There is no such thing as miracle drugs. However, what CBD can do for the elderly has led it to be called a 'panacea for aging.' It lessens inflammation, protects the brain against the neurodegenerative diseases, and modulates the immune system. Also, it not only acts as a painkiller itself but enables other painkillers to work better, so you need less of them. But these are just the main brushstrokes.

The reason my book on the endocannabinoid system currently runs 135 chapters is because I've acquired enough evidence to show 100 different diseases where the data makes it clear that CBD is worth a try. Especially because it has almost nothing in the way of interactions with other drugs, and since it's not psychoactive, you don't have to worry about getting high or failing a drug test.
