New studies are providing mounting evidence that CBD reacts to other receptors in the brain and body contributing to therapeutic effects.

Now, the medical potential of CBD has taken cannabis to mainstream audiences. Preclinical trials over the past several years have found that the cannabinoid shows promise as an:
- Anti - Inflammatory
- Sleep Aid
- Inflammatory Bowel Disorders
- Anxiety Disorders
- Chronic Pain
