Hundred years ago, people would have been bewildered by the idea of walking on the moon, or robots performing surgery. But all of that seems to be ‘normal’ nowadays. What is in store for us, a hundred years into the future is anyone’s guess at this point. Science and technology have made it possible in empowering human civilization to the far reaches of what was previously sought as impossible. What is equally difficult to believe is how a herbal medication that was heavily stigmatized and shun to the shadows, now cozily sits in most of our medicine cabinets and dashboard.
We have come a long way in accepting cannabidiol and opening up to its plethora of CBD health benefits. With so much information that is being circulated around about CBD use, there is still room for doubts in the mind of the common man; the doubt of whether CBD is safe for use. We are here to dispel your fears and help you better understand what CBD is all about. Read on.
CBD Or Cannabidiol
It is the fabled constituent present in marijuana and hemp plants, which delivers on a multitude of health benefits. It is a highly holistic, therapeutic medication that is natural, organic, and will give you relief for most of your ailments without breaking a sweat. All of this without being neither addictive nor psychoactive; does not make the user intoxicated or ‘high’.
The feeling of intoxication from taking in marijuana is solely due to THC or tetrahydrocannabinol. This compound is psychoactive and is the polar opposite of CBD; CBD is not THC.
CBD use helps you function better than normal with an increased sense of focus and a better mood. The clinical studies that support this and the several other benefits of CBD are outstanding. Some of the benefits include:
- Reduces inflammation and reddening.
- Relief from pain-causing acute and chronic ailments, alike.
- Helps soothe tension, stress and reduce anxiety
- Helps boost the recovery rate of damaged tissue.
- Induces better and deeper sleep.
Side-Effects Of Using CBD
These are just a few. CBD has an excellent side effects profile and most of them occur only if your body creates an allergic reaction to the CBD, when it reacts with other medication, or when you take more than needed. Most of the CBD side effects are quite minor and includes the likes of:
- Upset stomach
So safe is CBD that even the World Health Organization (WHO) has gone on record applauding CBD for its excellent benefits to side effects ratio. Enter into the world of CBD and find yourself pleasantly taken aback.
