You may have heard about the rise in popularity of CBD (Cannabidiol). There have been widely circulated news stories involving children with cerebral palsy being treated with CBD. This life-changing medicine has been critical in the treatment of many different ailments. As someone new to the use of CBD, here are a few things you need to know:
1. CBD flower is not marijuana. It is actually the female hemp plant.
2. CBD is non-psychoactive. This means that it will not get you “high”.
3. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant. In order to be considered hemp, the plant must have less than .3% THC.
4. Not all CBD is created equal. Make sure that your CBD and CBD related products come from a company you trust. Not all companies take the care to make sure that your products are uniform and actually contain the amount of CBD that is labeled on the box.
Some may question the legality of CBD and CBD products. In 2018, hemp was removed from the Schedule I drug list, and is not an agricultural commodity. This means that CBD is legal both at the state level as well as the federal level. In contrast, marijuana still remains on the Schedule I drug list. This means that even in states where growing, selling, and consuming marijuana is legal, it remains illegal in the eyes of the federal government.
CBD can be used in many different ways. The CBD oil can be extracted using various methods, and can be incorporated into a variety of different products. These products include edibles, smokables, vape juices, tinctures, ointments, and even gummies.
While use of the CBD Flower does not cure any disease, it can be used to treat many different ailments. Some of the symptoms that CBD may mitigate are: Poor sleep, anxiety, acne, joint pain, and muscle aches.
Modern research has shown that there is in fact a slight difference between the benefits of pure CBD oil versus use of the entire CBD flower. Researchers hypothesize that the flower includes helpful proteins and enzymes that work together with the CBD and small amounts of THC for a more wholistic approach in treatment.
While some CBD users have experienced side effects such as dizziness, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting, most patients report an overall positive change in mood that is not accompanied with any negative side effects.
