Very few times in my career have I been amazed by new products. However, I must say that CBD (Cannibidiol) is such a product. This is a hemp or cannabis plant oil extract that was patented by the U.S. government in 2003 as a neuro-protectant. This means that it protects the nervous system. It is important to understand that CBD IS NOT medical marijuana. It contains no THC which is the psychogenic ingredient of marijuana that gives the "high" sensation. CBD is completely legal in all 50 states. However, be aware that there is wide variation in quality of CBD products. DO NOT purchase CBD without being fully informed of it's benefits and being certain that you are obtaining a quality product.
