Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 80+ compounds found in cannabis that belong to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are usually the most recognized and studied. CBD and THC levels often vary between different strains and varieties of cannabis. By using selective techniques, breeders have managed to create varieties with high levels of CBD and THC. CBD is now known as the cannabinoid with the widest array of medicinal properties. Unlike THC, CBD has non-psychoactive effects so has gained more widespread reputable acclaim as a genuine alternative medicine.
Various studies have indicated that CBD has anti-emetic properties, combating nausea, migraines and vomiting. A Canadian based report indicated that manipulation of cannabinoid receptors using CBD suppressed the severe nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy patients, far more effectively than any available pharmaceutical drug.
