Beginner’s Guide to CBD
Project CBD has created a beginner’s guide to address key questions people have when starting CBD and cannabis therapy.
Project CBD was established in 2010 by journalists who had been covering the medical marijuana story — the science, the movement and the industry. We felt that the reintroduction of CBD-rich cannabis into the grassroots supply merited special attention. The serendipitous reappearance of whole plant CBD in Northern California in 2009 has given doctors and patients a unique opportunity to evaluate the effects of cannabidiol. Project CBD updates doctors and patients on developments in cannabis science, therapeutics and political economy.
CBD is a very safe substance, but it can interact with many common pharmaceuticals. At sufficient dosages, CBD will deactivate cytochrome P450 enzymes, thereby altering how we metabolize painkillers, statins, blood thinners, insulin, and other drugs.
