Having a cheeseburger with that CBD-infused product? A new study suggests that fatty foods might boost the body's absorption of cannabidiol (CBD).
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of natural compound known as a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are found in the cannabis plant. Cannabis plants are sometimes called hemp or marijuana, depending on their level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another cannabinoid.
THC is associated with a “high.” CBD, however, does not cause psychoactive effects like marijuana does.
In 2015, the National Institute of Health allotted $21.2 million of its $111 million cannabinoid research budget towards projects exploring the medicinal potential of these compounds. These projects proposed to manipulate the body’s endocannabinoid system, either by modifying endocannabinoids or with phytocannabinoids from the cannabis plant.
Like medical marijuana and hemp, CBD oil has risen to fame in recent times, thanks to its natural ability to relieve pain and provide relief from other uncomfortable symptoms experienced as a result of a physical illness like epilepsy, Dravet syndrome, and inflammation, or even an emotional affliction like anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and depression. And for the multitude of benefits that CBD oil seems to have, it has one major downfall: it’s rather bitter taste!
The holiday season is in full swing. Champagne corks are popping, and the wine is flowing like water.

When talking about cannabis, there are two main cannabinoids that make their way into most cannabis discourses: THC and CBD. While each are of equal value amongst the hundreds of cannabinoid compounds within the cannabis plant, they serve very different functions for the user and achieve different effects.
If you’ve found yourself researching the question how long does CBD last, we first need to figure out exactly what you’re asking. Do you want to know how long does CBD oil stay in your system?
Approximately 50 million people worldwide live with epilepsy, a neurological condition that involves recurring seizures. This makes it one of the most common neurological diseases globally.
While many people use cannabidiol to relieve pain, more scientific research is needed to be sure it is safe. Understanding cannabidiol can help overcome the stigma associated with it.
Some people experience side effects when taking cannabidiol (CBD) and there are other factors to consider before using CBD oil for pain.
The US government has made it clear that Canada’s decision to legalize weed does not mean you can bring weed across the border—even admitting to having consumed it can get a Canadian banned from America for life.
The U.S. cannabis retailer and producer Curaleaf began trading in Canada on Monday, bringing with it a mammoth $4.5 billion valuation, a big store fleet and the backing of two investors who were early players in Russia's economy following the Soviet Union's collapse.
