The evoking interest of the public to these cannabinoids (THC and CBD) is growing. The reasons why they are getting much attention from medical groups is because of their potential role in treating multiple health conditions. Each of these cannabinoids has given some patients the alternative instead of resorting to common drugs that have possible side effects.

Why is CBD a better option than THC?
CBD oil is in the limelight because it is known safe and effective natural treatment option.
