What is CBD? How is cannabidiol different from marijuana?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Although CBD doesn’t make people feel high like THC does, it’s causing quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and medical marijuana patients who are using CBD-rich products to treat a wide range of conditions—chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more. Academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of CBD on these and other ailments. Scientists refer to CBD as a “promiscuous” compound because it confers therapeutic benefits in many different ways while tapping into how we function physiologically and biologically on a deep level. Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that CBDhas strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities. Cannabidiol can change gene expression and remove beta amyloid plaque, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s, from brain cells.

CBD and THC both stimulate neurogenesis, the creation of new brain cells, in adult mammals.

How to consume CBD? How much CBD can I take?

CBD is personalized medicine. For better therapeutic use of CBD, find the proper combination of CBD and THC that works best for your needs. A person’s sensitivity to THC and other medication is a factor in determining the appropriate ratio and dosage.

Begin with a small dose of CBD isolate then progress to low THC < 0.03% in an oil, Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose. Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Most importantly observe the effects and how it makes you feel. FOR THE OVER ACHIEVERS Caution PLEASE DO NOT OVER DO IT .

Small doses of cannabis tend to stimulate; large doses sedate.

“Less is more” is often the case with respect to cannabis therapy.

Effects of Tincture:
The effects of Tincture CBD can last for four hours or more, but the onset of effects is much slower (30-90 minutes).

Patients of ALL AGES need access to a wide spectrum of whole plant cannabis not just high CBD oil. That why I recommend a few items such as Tincture and gummies as a basic. The goal is to administer consistent, measurable doses of a CBD that includes as much THC <0.03% as a person is comfortable with.
