New Monograph: Cannabidiol

Over 80 chemicals, known as cannabinoids, have been identified in the Cannabis sativa plant. While delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the major active ingredient, cannabidiol makes up about 40% of cannabis extracts and has been studied for many different uses. There is lots of interest in using cannabidiol for multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, bipolar disorder, and many other conditions. Get all the details in our new cannabidiol monograph.
