The whole world has woken up to the benefits of CBD. Each day, CBD users find that the non-intoxicating compound is an effective treatment for everything from anxiety to sleeplessness to distraction to chronic pain. It does make you wonder what other miracles CBD may be able to accomplish.
But, sentient beings aren’t the only ones that benefit from CBD. The results of a new study show that CBD helps keep strawberries fresh and may work as an all-natural food preservative.
The study was conducted by researchers at the University of South Florida and will publish in the journal Postharvest Biology and Technology. The process involved dumping CBD oil on a bunch of fresh-picked strawberries to see if doing so would “reduce microbial growth and extend the shelf life.” And it did.
