  • CBD has shown multiple therapeutic effects on the body.
  • The symptoms experienced by the student closely resemble the use of spice.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been lauded as a helpful solution to pain, anxiety, and other issues that can plague the endocannabinoid system. The majority of the marketing materials for these types of products state that it is non-psychoactive, which is largely due to the lack of THC.

However, Diamond CBD has rejected the claims that their products are to blame, saying that their tests have not found “any unnatural or improper derivative.”
