Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Although CBD doesn’t make people feel high like THC does, it’s therapeutic success on a variety of ailments is astounding.
Scientists, health professionals, and medical marijuana patients are using CBD-rich products to treat a wide range of conditions: chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more.
Extensive research has shown that CBD has strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities.

The Entourage Effect
To explain why whole plant CBD was more effective than pure CBD, the Israeli scientists surmise, “It is likely that other components in the extract synergize with CBD to achieve the desired anti-inflammatory action that may contribute to overcoming the bell-shaped dose-response of purified CBD.” By “other components,” they refer to the approximately 420 additional compounds, including other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids, proteins, enzymes, fatty acids, sugars, and so forth. As we discuss in our introductory article about terpenes, these compounds not only give the cannabis plant its scent and flavor, but research has shown that terpenes significantly enhance the therapeutic potential of THC (the most active cannabinoid) while minimizing its psychoactivity. Scientists call this phenomenon in which all the constituents of the cannabis plant work together, “the entourage effect.”
