Everything You Need to Know about CBD – and How it Can Benefit You

Posted by on August 8, 2019 in Healing & Natural Remedies, Health with 0 Comments

CBD is a compound found in the marijuana plant which has been making waves in recent times; it has been touted for its medicinal and health benefits, and those who have tried CBD products are quick to confirm how CBD has helped them have a better outlook and perspective on life – and a much better quality of life as well. But there is still a bit of mystery and mystique surrounding CBD – for instance, some people have the impression that if they take CBD oil or a CBD vape liquid, it will make them feel ‘high'. This is the first and most common myth about CBD, but this is something that can be easily debunked since CBD is not THC, which is another compound found in the marijuana or cannabis plant that has psychoactive properties most associated with the feeling of being ‘stoned'.

So, what, then, should you know about CBD, and how can it help you? Here's everything you should know about CBD –and how it can benefit you.

Introduction to CBD

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound which naturally occurs in the flower of the marijuana or cannabis plant. Today, more scientists and researchers are finding out the benefits of CBD; it is a safe and non-addictive substance. One of the most critical aspects you should know about CBD is that it is related to THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, which, as mentioned, is the compound that gives that ‘high' feeling. But CBD doesn't have the same psychoactive qualities found in THC, which means that ingesting CBD will not make anyone feel ‘stoned' or ‘high'. In fact, CBD may actually be able to neutralize or lessen THC’s effects, based on how much of both compounds you consume. Needless to say, many individuals prefer the health and medicinal benefits of CBD without the intoxicated feeling, or at least not as much of it.

The potential of CBD

CBD has been found to have a lot of potential in the treatment of various conditions, and those who don't want to deal with the side effects of popular pharmaceutical drugs are turning to cannabidiol to help them with their ailments or conditions. While much still has to be proven about CBD and more research still needs to be done, there is no denying that it has a lot of potential in terms of treating various maladies such as autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis and inflammation), neurological diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, stroke, and epilepsy, and metabolic syndrome diseases like obesity and diabetes.

CBD also shows plenty of potential in the treatment of neuropsychiatric illnesses such as autism, PTSD, ADHD, and alcoholism, and it shows promise in the treatment of skin diseases such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and acne.

How you can make use of CBD

If you are interested in making use of CBD and trying it out for yourself, you can take advantage of various CBD products, which include CBD oil and CBD isolates as well as CBD vape liquids. For example, if you are in Canada, you can buy CBD oil in Canada from reputable suppliers. You can purchase CBD oil with different levels and strengths, and some include THC as well. Most anyone can use CBD oil, and it is even used for pets nowadays. Many people are using CBD as an add-on form of treatment for different conditions, and its merit as a herbal supplement has already been proven. Of course, a lot still has to be researched about the real medical benefits of CBD, but this natural, non-addictive remedy is well on its way.
