Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 60 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major constituent of the plant, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract, as a non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid. CBD is considered to have a wider scope of medical applications than tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). An orally-administered liquid containing CBD has received orphan drug status in the US, for use as a treatment for dravet syndrome under the brand name, Epidiolex. Clinical applications The bud of a Cannabis sativa flower coated with trichomes Antimicrobial actions CBD absorbed transcutaneously may attenuate the increased sebum production at the root of acne. Neurological effects A 2010 study found that strains of cannabis containing higher concentrations of cannabidiol did not produce short-term memory impairment vs. strains with similar concentrations of THC, but lower concentrations of CBD.

It involves a wide range of psychical, physical, and emotional responses. The high is a subjective experience based in the individual - one's personality, mood, disposition, and experience with the drug. Given the person, the intensity of the high depends primarily on the amount of THC present in the marijuana. Grass having a THC concentration of three percent would be considered excellent quality by anyone's standards. Marijuana (plant material) is sometimes rated more potent that the content of delta-9 THC alone would suggest. This field is still in its infancy. Another possibility for higher potency is that homologues of delta-9 THC with longer side chains at C-3 (and higher activity) might be found in certain marijuana varieties.

Cannabinoids are natural and synthetic compounds structurally or pharmacologically related to the constituents of the plant Cannabis sativa or to the endogenous agonists (endocannabinoids) of the cannabinoid receptors CB 1 or CB2 [Pertwee, R. In a rat model it was shown that anandamide has a physiological triphasic effect on the cardiovascular system consisting of initial reduction in heart rate and blood pressure, followed by a brief pressor response, and a third prominent phase of reduction in both blood pressure and heart rate1. Fred Gardner: Cannabidiol Now! Two plants strains relatively rich in cannabidiol (CBD) have been identified by an analytic test lab recently established to serve the medical cannabis industry in California. That’s two major stories in one sentence.
Let’s take it from the bottom… In December a lab in the East Bay started testing samples of cannabis for pathogenic mold and the presence of three cannabinoids –THC, CBD and CBN (cannabinol). THC is the main psychoactive compound in the cannabis plant. CBD is a cannabinoid with intriguing medical potential that gets bred out of cannabis when the breeder’s goal is high THC content (as it has been in California for generations). The lab has been testing about 10 samples a day provided by Oakland’s Harborside Health Center, whose proprietor, Steve DeAngelo, helped plan and underwrite the venture. DeAngelo’s primary goal is to impose safety standards industry-wide. Cannabidiol (CAS 13956-29-1) Antioxidant activity has been reported to be a general property of the phenolic components of marijuana. Unlike Δ9-THC, cannabidiol can be administered at relatively high doses without undesired toxic or psychological effects.1 Cannabidiol at a concentration of 10 µM was neuroprotective against both excitatory neurotransmitter (glutamate) and oxidant (hydroperoxide) induced neurotoxicity.2 1 Consroe, P., Laguna, J., Allender, J., et al.
