Benefits of CBD

Cannabidiol and other cannabinoids have uses and all too often we read sensational news articles touting the benefits of cannabinoids they don't provide us with any evidence to support their claims.  This is why we have linked actual research articles.  Real world studies that have been done.  

As time progresses, we will continue to add research articles on all the potential benefits of cannabinoids.  For further independent study, I personally recommend looking up information on PubMed, which is operated by the National Institute of Health.
