ANDhe cannabidiol (CBD)a natural component of cannabis until now prohibited due to its identification with psychotropic effects, has recently gained the legal market for consumer products.
At the moment it is already a common ingredient in ointments and cosmetics that relax and soothe muscle pain, and is penetrating the prepared food and beverage market at a good pace, although it continues to be illegal in its classic form of assimilation, which is smoking the leaves of plant.
The basis of this commercial expansion is found in cannabidiol (CBD), an essential oil with supposed antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is one of the many compounds in cannabis, the oil exuded by the hemp plant with powerful psychoactive effects.
Plant Cannabis sativa L.. (variety of industrial hemp) contains more than 400 chemical components of which about 100 are cannabinoids, among which stands out tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)the best known for its psychoactive effect and whose properties imply an effect on the psychological state and is likely to cause dependence.
On the other hand, cannabidiol (CBD), another cannabis cannabinoid, unlike THC, does not have psychoactive properties and is not addictive. It is also claimed that the latter has health benefits, such as pain relief, anti-inflammatory properties, increased concentration, depression preventionetc.
