Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal drug that can be used to relieve pain and reduce fever. Ibuprofen is also widely recognized as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Like many NSAIDs, ibuprofen works by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins which are fat-like molecules that are involved in mediating inflammation, pain and fever. It achieves this synthesis by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, an enzyme that is present in various tissues of the body. Ibuprofen is the active ingredient in popular OTC (over-the-counter) analgesics such as Advil® and Motrin®. For most pain sufferers, use of these drugs requires a long term, daily dosing regimen.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid that is present in most varieties of the cannabis sativa and cannabis indica plants. Cannabinoids are unique to the cannabis sativa and cannabis indica plants. Unlike some of the other molecules found in varieties of the cannabis plant, it is non-psychoactive and it is not believed to have any addictive properties. It is also extremely well tolerated at high doses with little or no side effects. Cannabidiol catapulted into a national story after being an important part of the 2013 CNN documentary "Weed".
