Why has cannabidiol become so popular? CBD, a compound derived from the cannabis plant, started gaining public attention after children using it to treat epilepsy when nothing else worked. Today, many conservative US states such as Texas and Georgia, which still ban marijuana, allow CBD to be taken with little THC in cases of serious illness.
Meanwhile, as with cannabis, people all over the United States are experimenting with taking CBD in a variety of situations, from anxiety to insomnia. Cannabidiol has earned a reputation as a "wonder drug" because it does not get consumers high, and if it does not contain THC, it can be purchased online in all 50 states. Currently, most people are using this cannabinoid to relieve the side effects of cancer treatment, mental disorders (depression, anxiety, insomnia), inflammation (arthritis, Crohn's disease) and pain. But CBD offers much more. Here are the 5 most underrated uses for CBD.
