Why People Think Marijuana Are A Good Idea

Knowing More Cannabis CBD Product Uses

There are a lot of uses for CBD hemp oil and other products. However, you should also be aware certain risks if not used in the right way. People often do not realize that CBD and THC are completely different substances. Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive components that can induce changes in the mental state of people.

In June 2018, approval for use in epileptic seizure treatments was given for the purified form of CBD by the FDA. Cannabis Sativa is the derivative plant of both marijuana and especially hemp. Albeit this fact, they are completely different in terms of the substance they produce and their uses. Marijuana are usually bred by marijuana farmers to contain as much THC as possible, Hemp, on the other hand, are not modified to produce such substances and are used instead for the hemp oil and the fiber they produce.

Cannabinoids attach to both the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors producing their characteristic effect on the body. CB1 receptors are modulators for pain, emotion, mood, appetite, memories, movement and coordination which THC mostly attaches to. CB2 receptors are modulators of the body’s immunity which affects pain and inflammation. Recent studies have found CBD to attach neither to these receptors but may infact induce the body’s own cannabinoid system.

CBD may have different effects such as a natural form of pain relief and have anti-inflammatory properties. There has also been evidence that CBD can be used to treat people who are recovering from smoking addiction and drug withdrawals. Studies and researches on addictive behaviors have now concluded the beneficial effects of CBD, which came as a result from smokers using CBD containing inhalers that produced positive effects in reducing nicotine cravings. There is also research on opioid addiction treatment that had found CBD to reduce the symptoms of drug withdrawal such as anxiety, mood symptoms and insomnia.

The most effective use of CBD has perhaps been found on the treatment of seizures and other epileptic disorders. Epidiolex, a concentrated form of CBD oil, have been used by many doctors in young patients with different forms of seizures. It has been used as treatment for seizure types that are unresponsive to current anti-seizure medications. There have been variable results from the use of CBD derived drugs but there is a high rate of response in terms of the control and alleviation of seizure related symptoms. CBD has also been discovered to have less side-effects than that of conventional anti-seizure drugs.

Research has found that it is also effective in the treatment of other prevalent societal diseases such as cancer, anxiety, diabetes type 1 and Alzheimer’s. The use of cannabinoids have now becoming normalized due to the ever increasing need to expand the drug armory for doctors to use in the fight against diseases.
