FACTS NOT FALLACIES.
CBD does come from the cannabis plant – the cannabis plant has been associated with “getting high” or “getting stoned” – this is not entirely true though. The cannabis plant contains a vast variety of compounds called cannabinoids. The two dominant cannabinoids are Cannabidiol or CBD and Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. One of these cannabinoids will make you high and other one will not.
Research reveals, “Cannabis is a complex plant with over 400 chemical entities of which more than 60 of them are cannabinoid compounds, some of them with opposing effects”. CBD is a cannabinoid derived from cannabis, however, it is 100% non-psychoactive – meaning, it does not induce the feelings associated with “getting high” or “being stoned.” Association with the cannabis plant automatically triggers us to assume this fallacy about CBD but the simple fact is: You can’t get high off of CBD.
That said, the most common and the primary psychoactive ingredient in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the culprit that causes a person to feel “high”. THC activates cells in the brain to release dopamine. So, if you are looking for that “high-feeling” think THC not CBD.
CBD – What is it Good For? Absolutely Everything!
Cannabidiol oil may be taken in various forms such as CBD tinctures, CBD capsules, CBD oral spray, CBD vaping products as well as CBD skin care products (to name just a few).
CBD has been shown to fight anxiety, stress, insomnia, skin- aging, pain, and acne. Plus, more ongoing research is being conducted which has shown the amazing pain-management benefits that CBD has on ailments such as arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease as well as Multiple Sclerosis. CBD oil is even being used for animals and pets in aiding them with stress and anxiety. CBD oil is short of being known as miraculous and for a good reason – it works!
