A review of the positive attributes of cannabis and its compounds shows how it improves health

Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, has become a trend in the fields of wellness and healthcare. In recent years, research on this substance obtained from the cannabis plant has shed light on its multiple properties, which are beneficial for the proper functioning of the human body. However, while its popularity is growing in some sectors of society, in others there is still a reluctance to use CBD because there are many doubts and confusion about its use and the way it affects the body.

CBD today is undoubtedly one of the most known chemical compounds of cannabis. It is extracted from the leaves, flowers, and stems of the plant. Due to its origin and the fact that it is confused with other substances, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is also part of the chemical compounds of cannabis and has psychoactive effects, it is thought that CBD is an addictive drug, which is not true. Although it comes from cannabis, like THC, and is associated with the psychoactive effects of marijuana, CBD does not have those effects, so it is not a drug in that sense.

Also, many may not know, but according to the World Health Organization, cannabis consumption is safe and non-addictive, which is why many people have chosen to implement this compound in their medicinal routines. In order to understand many of its functions, it must be taken into account that the human body has an endocannabinoid system, related to the functioning of the central and peripheral nervous systems and neurotransmitters. CBD has a similar structure to some compounds produced in this system, which are in charge of keeping the internal functioning of the organism in balance.

With respect to the laws, although it is legal to travel with CBD, it is always appropriate to take into account the legislation of each state in order not to enter into any type of conflict. Anyway, it seems that CBD is here to stay and, as time goes by, its use has been increasing in a great way, turning it into a compound of great importance for the daily life of many people.
