Cannabidiol (CBD) Properties and Effects

CBD is, like THC, a multi-target molecule that binds with numerous cell receptors throughout the body; thus it directly and indirectly initiates complex biological changes. One study highlighted more than 30 pharmacological actions for CBD which may be therapeutically relevant to a number of conditions including Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, neuropathies, bacterial infections (MRSA), cancer, or acne.
