Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 70 cannabinoids found in cannabis. Unlike the well-known psychoactive compound THC, CBD is non-psychoactive but holds tremendous medicinal value. Patients find CBD helpful for inflammation, anxiety, seizures, spasm, chronic pain and many other conditions. The use of CBD alone allows patients to get symptom relief without the euphoric feeling, allowing them to function throughout the day without feeling lethargic or dysphoric.
CBD can also be used in combination with other compounds in cannabis producing even greater medicinal benefits known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect is the result of the combination of a strain’s cannabinoid profile and its terpenes, which together play a synergistic role in the medicinal benefits you receive. CSATC carries a variety of strains and products that contain CBD.
