CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid found in marijuana and hemp that's found in medical marijuana. Patients use CBD to treat seizures, epilepsy, pain, inflammation, PTSD, anxiety and a host of other conditions.
CBD is non-psychoactive and will not get you high. In fact, CBD diminishes the effects of THC.
Project CBD is the best resource on cannabidiol. Many refer to their list of conditions when considering CBD to treat symptoms.
A good rule of thumb for any cannabis medicine including CBD is to take as little as necessary to address the symptoms at hand. In other words, start low & go slow.
