CBD is the short form for cannabidiol and comes from hemp, that is the cannabis plant. Currently hemp is being rediscovered because it is very versatile. For decades, cannabis has been linked exclusively with drugs, but humans do without a wide range of uses of hemp. For example, hemp is also excellently suited as a fabric for clothing. And then there is also the huge area of health – here hemp via CBD (cannabidiol) is just ringing a small revolution. Thus physicians and science alike are fascinated by the versatile effect of cannabis on health. It will probably open a new chapter in medicine.
