At Las Vegas ReLeaf, we’re always learning more to teach our medical marijuana patients about the benefits of using medical cannabis for various health conditions. From concentrates and edibles to good old-fashioned flowers, we work hard to bring our patients the widest variety of high-quality cannabis goods, including an array of options that include the CBD-dominant strains more patients are asking for.
The CBD acronym is short for cannabidiol, which is one of the main cannabinoids naturally occurring in marijuana. CBD, unlike many of the other cannabinoids found in marijuana, can be found throughout every part of the cannabis plant, making it easily extractable for medicinal purposes.
Unlike its infamous cousin, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning you won’t get ‘high’ by consuming it. So, if CBD doesn’t get you high, why are so many people flocking to this kind of strains and concentrates?
Despite being non-psychoactive, CBD has been at the center of a flurry of research conducted over the past 40 years, and some published studies and preclinical trials have found CBD to be an effective treatment for an astonishing number of health problems. The significant antioxidant and neuroprotective properties of CBD was also officially recognized in a 1998 patent by the US National Institutes of Health, suggesting that CBD could be a potential treatment for neurological disorders.
As medical marijuana has swept through the country, including our state of Nevada, the industry has seen a huge spike in the popularity and demand for CBD products. For many medical marijuana patients looking for relief but not necessarily keen to “get stoned,” CBD concentrates and oils have become a popular choice for patients.
Considering its ability to provide so many patients with the relief they need without the disconcerting feeling of being high, the increase in availability of cannabidiol products is without a doubt one of the most promising developments in the cannabis industry today.
