You may have recently seen CBD flood the market shelves at local grocery stores to help people deal with a variety of health issues. This is especially true if you happen to live in a state where both medical and recreational cannabis is permitted. The truth is that CBD is one of many cannabinoids that can be found within the cannabis plant.
THC is another one, and perhaps the most well-known as it is the one responsible for making you feel stoned after taking a puff of cannabis or eating an edible. Our bodies were designed to respond to cannabis in a therapeutic way and has been known as a medicine for thousands of years. CBD is responsible for slowing down and buffering the raciness that can come with a THC-laden high.
CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol, is extracted, and mixed with oil or alcohol to create everything from tinctures to soaps and lotions. In its two most basic forms, CBD can either come as an isolate or as a broad-spectrum product, the latter being the best form for treating many health issues.
Unlike THC, CBD is used to counteract the headspace that accompanies a typical high, allowing for the user to feel a sense of calmness while being able to enjoy the high. It is part of what is known as the entourage effect, where multiple constituents work together to form a synergy of balance within the user.
The truth is that CBD alone can act as a powerful medicine for several different ailments. While CBD may feel noticeably relaxing, it does not impair cognitive function and is relatively safe and well tolerated among regular users. Like typical cannabis, CBD can be infused into an edible and eaten or can be vaped and even applied topically.
Those who take CBD are advised not to operate a car or other heavy machinery until you know how it will end up affecting you. Some users are more sensitive than others and CBD can result in excess drowsiness. This is especially true when users end up taking too much. Dry mouth and fatigue are the two most common side effects associated with CBD.
You may have heard stories on the news or through social media about children who have taken prescription medication to treat rare forms of epilepsy, only to end up in a critical condition or worse. The miracle “drug” that was discovered and used to successfully treat these rare forms of epilepsy was CBD.
It has allowed people to improve their quality of life and give them back a sense of normalcy. Unlike prescription drugs that only suppress the underlying issue without curing the source, CBD has been noted to essentially heal people from these debilitating ailments. Research has shown CBD to be effective against life-threatening conditions such as cancer.
Combined with other therapies and supplements, CBD can be used to heal those who otherwise would be destined to a life of pain and misery. It truly is a life saver to many people around the globe, and traction is slowly gaining to allow for more usage for this incredible cannabinoid.
Because CBD is tolerated rather well with minimal side effects, the truth is that CBD today is simply bad for your wallet! As a novel treatment, companies feel urged to overprice this medicine as there are not enough competitors to fill in the gap for demand. Greed can be easily recognized in certain companies, and those who are serious about CBD and its future should take note.
Those who are dehydrated or suffer from low energy are advised to speak to their doctors prior to starting any type of regimen involving CBD. This is because CBD can cause fatigue, dry mouth, diarrhea, and drowsiness in some users who might be sensitive or take more than the recommended dose.
Some forms of cancer require more THC than CBD, depending on the type. This is because CBD acts as an appetite suppressant, whereas THC stimulates the appetite and can be a lifesaver for those with wasting syndrome and other symptoms. Chemo and cancer work together to kill hunger which can further exacerbate the condition. This is where CBD may or may not be the best medicine.
CBD is slowly making the rounds and more people across the world are starting to wake up to the truth. Cannabis has been mistreated and misclassified as a drug instead of a medicine. Sadly, many people abuse this and other substances to create a toxic society filled with toxic rules that affect us all.
If you feel that the recurring story of CBD being a cure-all is an oversold story, then consider why it is being repeated. Could it be because people are desperate for the truth instead of propaganda? Listen to the facts, hear the stories, and make an informed decision. Cannabis is illegal for nefarious reasons that are not rooted in the best interest of public health.
Restricting cannabis has resulted in deaths, crime, cartels, and other true menaces to society. Since CBD does not get you high, it is legal in almost all states. We feel that this is the best time in history to be a part of the legacy surrounding cannabis as a legitimate medicine. CBD is just one cannabinoid. There are many others just waiting to be discovered. The revolution is now; stay tuned!
