CBD and the Cannabis Plant #infographic

Consumption of cannabis is still illegal in most countries. However, due to the many health benefits it provides, laws are slowly loosening up to allow the use of this plant for medical purposes.

Cannabis has two main components: CBD or cannabidiol, and THC or tetrahydrocannabinol. Since THC is the responsible for the psychoactive effects, cannabis plants below a certain level of THC are prescribed for treating several medical conditions. As you can see in this infographic by CBD Oil, cannabidiol has reported benefits for cancer and pain management, appetite control, anxiety, autism and insomnia treatment or even for detoxing. The reason behind these beneficial effects is that our body has specific cannabinoid receptors that help your process these components.

CBD oil can be consumed in several different ways. However, you should always check the laws regarding cannabis in your country or state. In case medical use is allowed, you should talk to your doctor so he can prescribe what’s best according to your needs.
