CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of more than 100 Phytocannabinoids so far identified in Cannabis, and is one of the best known molecules alongside THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

CBD, unlike THC, does not have psychoactive effects - but has been shown to be an excellent neuroprotective.

CBD enhances the analgesic efficacy of THC by extending the duration of action and at the same time reducing side effects of THC.

Why do we frequently discuss CBD? Up until a few years ago, CBD was overshadowed in comparison to THC, and is a natural substance with many beneficial properties.

For instance, CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and analgesic effects – amongst other attributes.

CBD is becoming established as the best remedy for anxiety and to soothe the symptoms of post - traumatic stress. Americans, for example, use CBD as a stress buster for their soldiers.

In science, there are a number of studies that show how CBD can be an extra option to try, an example are the benefits observed in children with epilepsy.

In the world of sports, CBD has made its debut with American Football, and thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, has helped to soothe the pain of the beating taken during matches.

Today it is used even in the world of fighting - last August the UFC champion Nate Diaz was seen at a press conference with an electronic cigarette, obviously smoking CBD.

 

 

In cycling, CBD, after long and repeated training, has been shown to increase the speed of recovery from muscle fatigue, helping to loosen tight muscles after performance.

In running, CBD can be useful to support pain after training.

Overall, studies have shown that CBD helps fractures to heal faster and strengthens bones.

CBD is a legally produced and marketed worldwide, but the regulatory gaps that several European countries have regarding Cannabis do not allow a uniform evaluation.

In the US, the regulatory framework is different from within Europe - although there are some individual federal states that are legalising cannabis, it has been decriminalised in European countries such as Germany, Portugal, the UK, Spain, Estonia, the Czech Republic, and soon, Croatia. In Italy it will be discussed in the coming weeks.

Lastly, CBD is a neuro – protector, and its contribution to combat neurodegenerative diseases could turn out to be essential.

CBD , according to a study in 2013 , helps to regulate blood pressure and is cytotoxic for some types of cancer cells, whilst protecting healthy cells.
