The world-wide research focus on non-psychoactive CBD or cannabidiol overturns all cannabis stereotypes. CBD is one of 85 active molecules in cannabis that interact with the human body’s internal receptors, and researchers are exploring its impact on a growing list of physiological conditions. The potential health effects have led some advocates to call CBD “Vitamin CBD”.
CBD is the second most common compound found in cannabis, and it does not produce the high associated with cannabis use. However, it packs a mean punch when it comes to pain and inflammation, problems with sleep, anxiety, depression, irritability and restlessness. CBD also goes hand in hand with THC’s apoptotic effects by protecting the healthy parts of cancerous cells from programmed cell death, and reducing the amount of hormones influencing the spreading and growth of damaged cells.
Grapeseed oil contains high levels of vitamin E, which has high antioxidant properties, and has shown to contribute to the reduction of damaged cells from free radicals in the body. This protection helps prevent heart disease and some cancer.
