Recent interest in the therapeutic applications of cannabinoids revealed the discovery of additional cannabinoids, further understanding of cannabinoid structure, and the unprecedented recognition of our body’s amazing Endocannabinoid System (ECS) — a network of receptors that interact with receptors found in cannabinoids. This has prompted research into the potential of CBD for the treatment of a variety of ailments such as chronic pain, epilepsy, and numerous neuro-degenerative diseases.
However, many still thought of cannabis only in turns of THC, or “getting high” on marijuana. Many were unaware that oil could be extracted from the cannabis plant, without the THC included and that there were other ways of administering it besides smoking it.
While the stigma towards cannabis had begun to shift, it still fell under a
very gray area of the law, and because of CBD’s close relationship to the controversial plant, it was judged under those same laws, making research a very slow process.
There is good news! Now that cannabis is being widely recognized as therapeutic, a “wonder drug” , if you will, many new discoveries and advances are being made.
Here is a list of conditions that there is documented research on, and the list is ever- expanding.
