” Cannabidiol is not a cannabimimetic and has no psychoactive activity. Synthetic cannabidiol will not have THC but cannabidiol extracted from cannabis plants may also contain varying concentrations of THC, which remains a prohibited substance “. Source
The reason for this is that CBD is not seen as psychoactive and has many natural benefits including the following:
Relieves pain – Studies have shown CBD is very effective in reducing pain, including musculoskeletal pain and stiff joints.
Alternative to NSAIDs – athletes have found the pain relieving effect of CBD can reduce or eliminate their use of NSAIDS for exercise-related pain, with minimal side effects. According to The Essentials of Pain Medicine, Fourth Ed., “There are no documented deaths from cannabis or cannabinoid-based products. In a systemic review of studies of oral and oral-mucosal cannabis for various medical conditions, the majority of adverse events reports were considered non-serious (96.6%).”
Reduce Inflammation – Cannabinoids can reduce cytokine (cell messengers) production during hard workouts by connecting to CB2 receptors. CBD inhibits the bodies responses and reduces the post recovery time.
Improve Sleep Quality – cannabinoids are well known to improve sleep quality and relaxtion, especially high THC kush varieties.
