Description

For many years, scientists have pondered over the Cannabis sativa plant, or better yet known as marijuana. Although to many, marijuana may seem like an unordinary plant to study, one of its isolated components may be the future of medicine. Marijuana consists of two major components, also referred to as cannabinoids: THC (short for tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (short for cannabidiol). THC is well known for its psychoactive effects; however, CBD has always been relatively misunderstood. CBD is the nonpsychoactive component, and until its recent surge in medical research, there was little to no research on its effects. However, within the last two decades, CBD has been tested on a multitude of cell types, and its distinct effects have taken the scientific community by surprise.
