BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CannaInsider.com, the cannabis industry's leading site for interviews with the leaders of the legal marijuana, cannabis industry, has published a comprehensive guide to CBD, the miracle cannabinoid endorsed and made popular in 2013 by a documentary produced by mainstream media health expert, Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 80 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant called cannabinoids. Cannabinoids bind to receptors in the brain and body and are responsible for the effects of cannabis, like feeling high, relaxed, or euphoric. The most popular cannabinoid, THC, is widely known as the compound that produces a high feeling.
CBD, which is rapidly gaining popularity, is known for its immense healing properties that are just being discovered as scientific research into the cannabis plant expands. Gupta's documentary profiled five-year-old Charlotte Figi, who reduced her 300 seizures a week to just one a day with CBD treatment. CannaInsider's Guide details what the scientific community knows about CBD and explains how the legal marijuana industry is responding.

"CBD is quickly expanding beyond the medical marijuana community and into totally new demographics (senior citizens and athletes, to name just two). This rapid growth is certain to continue as more and more individuals discover how CBD can play a positive role in their own healthcare outcomes," said Patrick O'Malley, President of Good Life Colorado — the world's only marijuana product incubator.
Dr. Noel Palmer, Ph.D., The Chief Scientist at Mary's Medicinals, an infused products company in Denver is equally enthusiastic the excitement around CBD, "CBD has amazing therapeutic efficacy for a large variety of conditions, but it doesn't get you stoned. For those who want a plant-derived medicine, CBD is an great option with very few negative side effects."
In the CNN documentary, Figi treated her severe Dravet Syndrome with a CBD oil produced by the popular Colorado-based brand, Realm of Caring, made from a strain of high CBD cannabis plants. However, CBD can also be found in the hemp plant. Hemp products are distributed nationally and are regulated by the Department of Agriculture.
