Who's confused about CBD? If so, it's for good reason! The stuff is everywhere — in drinks, foods, oils, capsules — but there's very little consensus on what it actually does inside the body. CBD is not psychoactive like it's cannabinoid cousin THC. But is it as anti-inflammatory as advocates claim? Does it really improve health? Believe what you want, but the truth is that there's too little research to know. And as with any chemical, it runs the risk of side effects. A good rule of thumb to follow in every corner of your life: educate yourself before jumping on the bandwagon.
