Because of the recent proliferation of CBD products in the market after the legalisation of medicinal and therapeutic use of CBD and CBD products, this market is rife with contradictions. Read ahead to resolve your confusion about CBD and CBD products.
CBD as Treat All Disease Medicine
When you are new into CBD products and read about the many products available, it is very likely that you might be misguided to believe that it treats almost all the ailments including cancer. And, this can be nothing further from the truth. The basis for this is that CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system of our body working on the receptors CB1 and CB2, where CBD works on the receptor CB2 that is associated with the immune system.
CBD is Not Psychoactive
Because CBD do not produce the high associated with THC, many assume CBD is not psychoactive. A psychoactive compound is something that alters our brain physiology and our perception of the world. CBD can make changes to the brain physiology of the person and so it is a psychoactive compound, but with positive effects.
CBD Has No Side Effects
If the CBD product that you purchased claims to be free from side effects, then you must be cautious. It slightly varies on how it works from one individual to another. Some of the known side effects from CBD usage are drowsiness, dry mouth, low blood pressure and light headedness.
All CBD is Same
Not all CBD products are the same. There are three variants of CBD products.
- Full Spectrum CBD: This contains every cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. The quantity of THC is not regulated and can be above 0.3%
- CBD Isolate: Here every other cannabinoid is removed. It is 99% CBD.
- Broad Spectrum CBD: It is Full Spectrum CBD without THC or with THC kept to minimum.
CBD is Not Safe for Kids
CBD is found to be very effective in the treatment of epilepsy in children. It is also found to be useful in increasing general activity of children with Autism.
CBD Has No Health Benefits
Many argue that CBD products are a scam or they are a placebo product. Some of the benefits and uses of CBD oil are its anti-inflammatory property, useful in pain relieving. Medical CBD oil is used as a topical product to treat inflammation. It is used in skin care and hair care products.
As you can see from the above discussion, many of the misconceptions about CBD and CBD products are not true. Since, this is a booming market, the scope of many unregulated products are equally high.
