Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the components of the cannabis plant. It has significant medical benefits and is non-psychoactive, it does not make a person "high" or "stoned".
CBD works by suppressing the breakdown of endocannabinoids thereby increasing the amount of the body's natural occurring endocannabinoids at the receptor site. CBD also stimulates the release of another neuromodulator that in turn activates the CB1 and CB2 receptors.

Studies have suggested a wide range of therapeutic effects on several conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cerebral ischemia (decreased blood flow to the brain), diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory diseases, nausea and cancer.
