THE MORNING SHOW
Dr. Allan Frankel
Up until this past year, it has been impossible to help patients using CBD, as it had nearly been bred out of the world of cannabis plants. Of course, no one knew about CBD, but everyone was growing for the stoniest weed; hence, CBD which is essentially non-psychoactive, was nearly lost. In the past two years, more and more rich CBD strains are turning up. This is in part because we know we should be looking for them AND we finally had laboratories that would accurately let us know how much of which cannabinoid was present. The Cannabinoids are the approximately 200 or so three chain molecules such as THC, the most well known one and most psychoactive one. So, the plant in the past always contained CBD – remember it all started with Hemp!
