420 with CNW — New Study Suggests CBD Could Reduce Consumption of Alcohol

Cannabidiol (“CBD”) is one of more than 100 chemical compounds called cannabinoids, which are produced in the cannabis family. You've probably heard of THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol), the main psychoactive component responsible for cannabis' intoxicating effects.

420 with CNW — Cannabis Prohibition Costs $53 Billion Annually in the US
