CBD is short for Cannabidiol which by all scientific accounts appears to be the ROCKSTAR of the Cannabinoid world. It is the most predominant Cannabinoid in Hemp and is endowed with many beneficial properties.
In its patent (#6,630,507) titled CANNABINOIDS AS ANTIOXIDANTS AND NEUROPROTECTANTS the US Government makes many impressive claims about CBD stating that:
- “Cannabinoids are potent antioxidants…they easily penetrate tissues giving them the ability to enter the central nervous system and brain.”
- “Non-psychoactive Cannabinoids such as CBD are particularly advantageous as they are non-toxic…and exhibit unique antioxidant properties without the undesirable effects of THC.”
- “The antioxidant strength of CBD is significantly greater than that of either Vitamin C or Vitamin E.”
