Everything You Wanted To Know About Hemp But Were Afraid To Ask
10 CBD Facts You Need To
#1: Key Ingredient
is a key
ingredient in cannabis, one of more than 60 compounds unique to the plant and
grouped under the umbrella term “cannabinoids.” Cannabidiol, otherwise known
as CBD, and THC
are usually the most common cannabinoids in the plant and
are therefore the most widely studied.
#2: Won’t Get You High
CBD does not get you high like THC does. THC causes euphoria by
binding to special CB1 and CB2 nerve receptors in the brain. CBD does not bind
to these receptors, so cannabidiol does not get you stoned.
#3: CBD From Hemp is
CBD can be made from medical marijuana plants or industrial hemp
plants. Marijuana is illegal under federal law but legal in some states.
Industrial hemp when grown in other countries can be imported legally into the
United States, making it easier for consumers to get CBD treatment without
breaking the law.
#4: Cannabinoid Levels
CBD and THC levels, known as cannabinoids, vary between plants.
Marijuana plants grown for recreational use tend to be high in THC and varying amounts
of CBD. Industrial hemp plants are very low in THC while medical marijuana
plants are typically high in CBD.
#5: No Prescription
It is legal to order CBD made from industrial hemp plants online
for use in any state without a prescription. Individuals ordering CBD products
made from medical marijuana plants must live in a state where medical marijuana
is legal and have a prescription.
#6: Has Medical Value
studies show CBD provides therapeutic medicinal benefits. According to a 2013
review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
soothes nausea and vomiting, acts as an anti-oxidant to reduce free radicals
neurodegenerative disorders, and
works as an anti-inflammatory to reduce swelling. CBD also stimulates appetite
and relieves pain.
#7: Benefits the Mind
CBD also combats psychological issues, including working as an
antipsychotic to combat psychosis. Additionally, CBD works to reduce chronic
anxiety and depression disorders. These benefits of CBD are also helpful for
patients struggling with temporary anxiety and depression resulting from a more
serious medical condition.
#8: Combats Cancer
CBD products may reduce the
spread of some types of cancer cells. The National Cancer Institute
studies that show cannabidiol may have a protective effect against cancer. This
review includes research investigating the benefits of CBD treatment for a
variety of cancers, including breast, colorectal, and lung cancers.
#9: Reduce THC Fallout
CBD counteracts the negative
effects of THC. According to research
published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, CBD seems
to prevent THC-induced memory impairment. CBD may also ease paranoia and other
negative side effects commonly associated with THC.
#10: Helping Children
The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) has granted University of California at San Francisco
permission to study the effects of the purified cannabidiol drug on children
with uncontrolled seizures. Study participants are all between the ages of 1
and 18 years, and all suffer symptoms resistant to conventional treatments.
Many participants have Dravet syndrome, a condition that begins in early
childhood and causes frequent, disabling seizures on a daily basis. The FDA and
Drug Enforcement Agency promise to monitor the research closely. Pending FDA
approval, more institutions will take up the study.
