The advent of whole plant CBD-rich oil as a grassroots therapeutic option has changed the national conversation about cannabis, nationally and globally.

It’s no longer a question of whether medical cannabis works – today the key question is how to use cannabis for maximum therapeutic benefit.

But most health professionals in South Africa have little experience in this area.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, CBD, is one of at least 113 naturally occurring cannabinoids found in cannabis plants.

CBD does not appear to have any psychoactive effects such as those caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and it may have a downregulating impact on disordered thinking and anxiety.

It is a 21-carbon terpenophenolic compound which is formed following decarboxylation from a cannabidiolic acid precursor, CBDa, although it can also be produced synthetically.

CBD can be converted to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) under experimental conditions; however, this does not appear to occur to any significant effect in patients undergoing CBD treatment.

A few possible benefits of CBD:

  • CBD can stop epileptic seizures
  • CBD can treat serious neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s
  • CBD can relieve pain
  • CBD can fight cancer
  • CBD can reduce inflammation
  • CBD can treat mood disorders
  • May be used in addiction treatment
  • Insomnia
  • CBD can help treat those suffering from anxiety
  • CBD can help those suffering with depression
  • CBD can help reduce acne
  • Fights Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria
  • CBD can help those suffering from Schizophrenia

Who would have thought that one of the main components of Cannabis which doesn’t provide a high effect would become such a big component in todays medicine?

CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. Reported adverse effects may be as a result of drug-drug interactions between CBD and patients’ existing medications.  Several countries have modified their national controls to accommodate CBD as a medicinal product. To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.
