psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana
that produces a high, advises
the Mayo Clinic. CBD has been studied
as a treatment for a wide range of conditions
like Parkinson’s disease, diabetes,
multiple sclerosis, and anxiety.
Getting healthier is a common
theme of New Year’s resolutions. Various
health trends could affect what
people resolve to do in the year ahead
