Benefits of CBD – Does it really work?
To answer this question, we first need to ask: What is CBD? In recent years, researchers have discovered that there are around 100 different chemical compounds within the Cannabis Sativa plant. These compounds are often referred to as ‘cannabinoids’ (CBD) or ‘phytocannabinoids’.
Cannabidiol is generally extracted from hemp plants which are mainly used for industrial uses such as making paper, rope, clothes & even health food. Hemp has a high CBD content and only contains trace amounts of THC.
One of the main components of the Cannabis Sativa plant is Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), while CBD itself only actually makes up a percentage of Cannabis extracts.
In a report from the World Health Organization, it states that “CBD does not produce the effects that are typically seen with cannabinoids such as THC. It has also failed to produce significant effects in a human study of abuse potential.” It is also known that, unlike its other half, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – CBD is a non-psychoactive compound thus does not induce any ‘high’ effect.
In our day and age, cannabidiol is growing in popularity and is being used in a wide variety of products such as CBD Oils, CBD Balms, CBD Coffee and even CBD Shampoo, with the list expanding as the industry progresses. Due to certain marketing and advertising laws, CBD products are currently being sold as a health supplement providing the THC content does not surpass the 0.2% legal threshold.
In what way can I benefit from CBD?
The list of benefits CBD may potentially offer users is ever-growing due to an increasing amount of research being carried out to determine if & how effective CBD could potentially be. Research carried out so far has found there may be many potential benefits from using cannabidiol daily.
