Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the naturally-occurring chemical compounds called cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. While research is still ongoing, there is growing evidence that CBD can assist in relieving various conditions, including pain, inflammation, anxiety, stress, PTSD, and other ailments. Patients have also used CBD to address opioid withdrawal, Crohn’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. The FDA even approved a CBD drug, Epidiolex, for the treatment of seizures associated with severe forms of epilepsy. There is good reason to be optimistic about how CBD will benefit health and wellness far into the future.
CBD products are made from industrial hemp, a vital plant worldwide for millennia but one that only recently gained legal status in the US. Compared to marijuana, CBD from industrial hemp contains a small fraction of THC, the psychoactive element of cannabis. CBD cannot make you high. On the contrary, it is often associated with focus, clear-mindedness, and calm. While the inclusion of THC is not even necessary in CBD products, a small amount can also be beneficial for specific individuals or particular conditions.
Healthy living habits and active self-care routines are, thankfully, becoming more mainstream in our society. There can be no question that natural products containing CBD will be a big part of our evolution toward better well-being in the coming years. Projections for the CBD market to swell by perhaps 20-fold in the next five years are evidence of the excitement around this new market. King Jane is equally pleased to be a key player in bringing healthy alternatives to people in need.
