CBD Benefits and Uses

Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a natural, non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. Over the past few years, CBD has gained popularity as a natural remedy for various health conditions. This non-intoxicating cannabinoid is believed to have therapeutic properties that can help alleviate pain, reduce anxiety and depression, and improve overall well-being. 

Pain Relief 

One of the primary benefits of using CBD is pain relief. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce pain caused by conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and neuropathic pain. How does it work exactly? CBD interacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid system (ECS), by binding with receptors in the ECS, which helps regulate pain and inflammation.

Both our Westwood dispensary and North Hollywood dispensary offer a wellness section of CBD products to help with pain, such as Papa & Barkley

Anxiety and Depression 

Looking for a more natural way to fight anxiety and depression? CBD is a great option for those who desire medication with less side effects. CBD has been shown to have anxiolytic and antidepressant properties, which can help reduce anxiety and depression by interacting with receptors in the brain that regulate mood and emotions. Several studies have found that CBD can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, including social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

We recommend trying Chemistry’s Purple Moods Tincture! It includes a healing dose of THC blended with other cannabinoids to produce a truly enlightened high. The other ingredients include Organic Coconut MCT Oil, Full-Spectrum Cannabis Extract and Lavender.

Neuroprotective Properties 

CBD has neuroprotective properties, meaning it can protect the brain from damage caused by injury or disease. CBD reduces the damage caused by oxidative stress, inflammation, and neurotoxicity, which are all factors that contribute to the development of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. 

Better Sleep 

In addition to aiding ailments, CBD has also been shown to have a positive effect on sleep quality. CBD can help reduce anxiety and promote relaxation, which can lead to better sleep. Several studies have found that CBD can improve sleep in people with insomnia, REM sleep behavior disorder, and sleep apnea.

Skin Health 

Add CBD to your skincare routine. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can benefit the skin by reducing inflammation and redness caused by conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. CBD can also reduce the production of sebum, which is the primary cause of acne. 


CBD is also pet safe! Many animals benefit from the use of CBD to help with anxiety, joint pain/discomfort, illness, sleep, and more. It is always best to check with your vet beforehand, but there are tons of success stories of how CBD has helped furry friends in need.
