CBD is the new ‘buzz’ word but what is it and what are the health benefits to you and your family? If you watch TV, read a magazine, are on your computer or even passing a coffee shop or salon, you would have seen these initials: CBD.
When I first found out that CBD came from cannabis, I was sceptical as I did not want to have anything to do with getting high; then I found out that cannabis has many varieties. Like citrus has orange, lemon and lime, cannabis has hemp and marijuana. The latter is harvested purely for its psychoactive intoxicating effect; hemp, on the other hand, has over 50,000 industrial applications and has been in the human diet for millennia. All mammals have an endocannabinoid system that craves CBD and other ‘cannabinoids’ for general wellbeing and balance.
