8 Fascinating Facts About CBD



CBD (cannabidiol), is one of two major cannabinoids (naturally occurring compounds) which are found in hemp and cannabis plants. The second one is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Both of these natural substances have been, and still are, being researched by scientists, in order to determine their therapeutic and medicinal applications. CBD is now becoming the top natural supplement all over the world. This is because it has numerous health benefits, is not psychoactive, and does not give users a 'high,' like THC [1]. Now let's take a look at some of the miraculous facts about CBD:


Number 1: CBD Neutralizes the Psychoactive Effects of THC


CBD efficiently counteracts THC's side-effects. These include: memory impairment, paranoia, and anxiety [1].


Number 2: Hemp & Cannabis Plants House Over 113 Cannabinoids


Many people think that these plants just contain CBD and THC, but in fact, they actually boast more than 113 cannabinoids. The others are not given much publicity, because generally speaking, CBD and THC have the greatest concentrations. Because of this, when selecting plants, and breeding new strains, the majority of growers, chose to concentrate on the CBD and THC content [1].


Number 3: CB1 and CB2 Receptors Do Not Stimulate Directly


CBD does not have a psychoactive effect, simply because its molecules are not able to bind to the cells' CB1 or CB2 receptors which are present in various parts of the body within the ECS (endocannabinoid system). Instead of doing this, the molecules transmit a signal to the body’s naturally present cannabinoids in order to trigger the receptors to work harder [1].


Number 4: The Countless Medicinal Properties of CBD


To date, scientific research has demonstrated that CBD offers a plethora of medicinal benefits. These comprise:

Anti-cancer/tumoral

Anti-convulsant (helps to inhibit seizures)

Anti-depressant

Anti-emetic (reduces vomiting & nausea)

Anti-inflammatory

Anti-oxidant

Anti-psychotic

Analgesic (relieves pain)

Anxiolytic (combats anxiety) [1].


Number 5: A Variety of Methods to Administer CBD


With capsules, tinctures, oils and balms, there is an excellent choice of different ways to take CBD, so they suits everyone's preference and lifestyle. Some products are swallowed orally, other dissolve under the tongue (sublingually), and some are taken topically – via the skin [1].


Number 6: CBD is Great For Pets

CBD is not just miraculous for human beings, it is wonderful for pets as well. Cannabidiol can be used for various conditions including: anxiety, skin issues, epilepsy, joint pain and arthritis [1].


Number 7: Hemp-Derived Cannabidiol is Legal in Every State


CBD which is extracted from hemp, is legal to purchase and use in all 50 states. Compared to cannabis plants, hemp plants only contain a minimal amount of THC, and this is why the US government has made them legal [1].


Number 8: Marijuana-Derived CBD is Not Legal
