In the blink of an eye, cannabidiol, or CBD, is everywhere. It’s also being promoted by magazines and clinicians alike as the miracle molecule to relieve almost any ailment, promote well-being and augment or replace mainstream medicine. Many clients tell their trusted nutrition professional about alternative therapies they might be trying before informing their physician and may even ask questions about its safety and efficacy. So, what do dietitians need to know about CBD? Is there evidence that it is either safe or effective? What are the nutrient interactions you should know about?
