What is CBD? ⠀
CBD stands for Cannabidiol which is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. CBD provides many of the same benefits as THC without the "high". It is very safe. Even further, CBD can reduce the adverse effects of THC.
Cannabidiol shows tremendous commitment to improving overall health because of its wide impact on the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
CBD is one of the many chemical compounds, classified as phytocannabinoids (phyto-plant), that provide various health and medicinal benefits. ⠀⠀
Although CBD is present in cannabis, it is most commonly extracted from industrial hemp. Industrial hemp is a plant that produces a higher content of CBD and a lower content of THC (0.3% or less delta 9 THC). ⠀
This helps to provide all the benefits of cannabis without the individual becoming “high.”⠀
Cannabidiol In A Stimulated Public Speaking Test
One of the most interesting studies was about treating the public speaking fear with CBD. It is the number two most fearful things. A total of 57 healthy males were allocated to receive oral CBD at doses of 150 mg, 300 mg, 600 mg or placebo. The results were shocking. Compared to placebo, the group which took 300 mg of CBD significantly reduced anxiety during the speech. Feel free to read the full study here.
