Cannabidiol (CBD) has become immensely popular and has been portrayed to offer an interesting combination of popular holistic medicine and a natural answer to synthetic drugs. CBD is a phytocannabinoid and non-psychoactive isomer of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with potential medicinal properties. After being virtually unknown by most people not even a decade ago, more than 1000 products are being sold through the internet, dispensaries, pharmacies, large national retail stores, and local bodegas. The estimated market value of CBD is more than $60 billion within the next few years. However, there are uncertainties on the legality, quality, safety, and efficacy of this new “miracle cure.” Not much is known regarding the frequency, dosage of use, and mechanism of action. Recently numerous efforts have been focused on investigating the efficacy through in-vitro and clinical studies. We need to be patient as the results come out of these studies to make the scientifically supported health claims. This talk will focus on the history and advances made in the CBD world as well as shed light on safe CBD alternatives.
