CBD, cannabidiol, is one of the many compounds in the cannabis plant that excites medicinal advocates because it has a wide range of potential benefits and, unlike THC, is not psychoactive. Compassion is one of the varieties bred to be high in CBD and low in THC (which is why, if you also like being high, you get it with the kief dusting). I'd tried the hash a couple weeks earlier when I felt like I'd pulled some kind of internal muscle in my belly playing a rock n' roll show. I've long believed in medical weed and know I use it to self-medicate for all sorts of things. I know, depending on the strain, it can help me focus or help me sleep. It can help me get outside of myself for a good ethical scouring. It can make me hungry, help me deal with stress, make me feel better.
