Cannabidiol: Medical Marijuana Without Psychoactive Side Effects

Medical Marijuana

Martin Lee, director, Project CBD talks about the medical benefits of cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis, and can serve as an effective therapy for cardiovascular disease, liver conditions and metabolic disorders. Medical marijuana can be used to treat chronic pain, and is often a better alternative than opiates, particularly for peripheral neuropathy.
