Nowadays cannabidiol (or CBD) is gaining more and more popularity as a natural supplement of plant origin. Several investigations have confirmed that this chemical compound from marihuana/hemp plants offers many benefits for human health and well-being thanks to its soothing, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant and analgesic properties, among others: estudios de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid has shown that CBD characterizes by antitumoral qualities as well, helping some patients with advanced glioblastoma.
Many people consume it on a daily basis to maintain and improve their health since this cannabinoid influences the endocannabinoid system that regulates and balances other physiological systems of the body. Therefore, it has many applications in the medical, pharmaceutical and food industries.
CBD as one of the main cannabis compounds
According to the definition, CBD is one of the main organic compounds (cannabinoids) found in cannabis. It is possible to extract it from the marihuana plant, as for example in the case of the famous tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Unlike THC, cannabidiol is not characterized by psychoactive and psychotropic qualities. What is worth mentioning is that in industrial hemp there is considerably more CBD than THC, while marihuana contains more THC and less CBD. It is important to point out that previously higher levels of CBD were obtained from the industrial hemp, however, in 2017 Sweet Seeds® launched its first two varieties, Sweet Nurse Auto CBD® (SWS59) and S.A.D. Sweet Afgani Delicious CBD® (SWS60). In 2018 we managed to get our Sweet Pure CBD® (SWS65), which is the first variety of “pure CBD” marihuana with very low levels of THC, generally below 1%, and high levels of Cannabidiol (CBD) that are around 8-15%. Currently, the Sweet Seeds® catalog has 11 varieties rich in CBD.
In 2003, The US Department of Health and Human Services allowed that a patient was treated with cannabidiol since he suffered from inflammatory and neurodegenerative conditions. Lately, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved the use of CBD in medical tests that also serve as an aid to people suffering from a rare type of epilepsy.

Its use is also beneficial in curing Crohn’s disease, arthritis, schizophrenia and anorexia. It can also serve as the prevention of these conditions.
Cannabidiol oil for psychic ailments
Traditional medicines intended to cure mental ailments often cause side effects, such as dizziness, nausea, decreased concentration and low pressure of blood. Therefore, more and more patients are looking for something to replace these remedies. With CBD oil it is possible to reduce symptoms of stress/anxiety and depression and eliminate sleep problems (thanks to its soothing properties).
For what conditions the CBD cream is useful?
The anti-inflammatory cream with cannabidiol is developed specifically to relieve muscle pain and stiffness. It is efficient in diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and other discomforts, for example, chronic tissue inflammation. It is recommended to apply an appropriate amount of the cream to the joint or selected muscle and leave it for a couple of minutes so that the cream is absorbed well and begins to act its warm/cold effect.
