Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most important healing substances in the hemp plant, and due to its non-psychoactive properties is quickly becoming more widely accepted by the general public for its medicinal benefits. According to a 2013 study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, CBD benefits including acting in some experimental models as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic agent, and is therefore a potential medicine for the treatment of neuroinflammation, epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting and nausea, anxiety and schizophrenia.
