CBD: Understanding its Potential Benefits and Safety Considerations

By Dr. Morgan Camp, MD

As a doctor, I have been prescribing CBD to my patients, including professional athletes (top athletes who swear by CBD for optimal performance), for over ten years. Yet Cannabidiol (CBD for short) is still a mystery to many and people have lots of questions about it.

In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at what CBD is, its potential benefits (Science behind CBD and athletic performance), safety considerations, and how to determine if a CBD product is safe and effective.

What is CBD?

CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, which is a variety of cannabis that is specifically grown for industrial and medical uses. CBD is typically derived from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of the hemp plant, and can be found in a variety of products, including oils, tinctures, capsules, edibles, and topicals. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another well-known compound found in cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive and does not produce a “high” sensation. Instead, CBD is believed to have a variety of potential health benefits, including reducing inflammation, relieving pain, and reducing anxiety.

How to Determine if a CBD Product is Safe and Effective


As I have personally seen in my medical practice for over a decade, CBD is a potentially useful compound that may have a variety of therapeutic benefits. While more research is needed to fully understand the potential risks and benefits of using CBD, many people have found it to be helpful for conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, and sleep disorders. If you are considering using CBD, it is important to ensure that you are using a safe and effective product, and to consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns or questions.

As with any supplement or medication, it is important to weigh the potential benefits and risks before using CBD. While CBD is generally considered to be safe for most people, it is important to be aware of the potential side effects and potential interactions with certain medications. By doing your research and carefully evaluating CBD products, you can ensure that you are using a safe and effective product that may provide you with the potential health benefits you are looking for.
