CBD is everywhere nowadays, even if you are not a fan of cannabis, you might see it in dispensaries, pharmacies, head shops, or even online stores. In current years, the use of CBD is getting more and more widespread due to its various uses and potential health benefits. So what are some interesting aspects of CBD that even the most experienced CBD users may never hear of?
1. CBD is safe, good for your health, and it’s non-addictive
CBD can be prescribed as medication, and you can’t overdose on CBD! Research shows that CBD has several health benefits in treating Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS). Epidiolex, which contains CBD, is the first cannabis-derived medicine approved by the FDA. Moreover, CBD can help reduce anxiety, help with insomnia, and lower cravings for tobacco and heroin under certain conditions, according to some research on humans.
2. CBD doesn’t get you high, but it is psychoactive!
Even though CBD is one of over 60 cannabinoids found in cannabis, it does not cause a “high”! However, CBD modulates the functioning of neurotransmitters in the brain, so it does affect your mind and behavior. Therefore, it is psychoactive. If you’re into using it but don’t want to consume THC, CBD isolate is an option due to it being a pure extract that contains cannabidiol without any additional cannabinoids or terpenes.
3. CBD is good for your pets!
Research has shown that all animals, including dogs and cats, have an endocannabinoid system which means they can benefit from cannabinoids in the same way that humans do. CBD can help our pets deal with anxiety, stress, pain, nausea, and another ailment. Cannabidiolic is non-intoxicating, and our pets may benefit from it; however, keep in mind that we should avoid using THC 5 on our pets.
4. CBD comes in many forms
CBD is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants, along with tetrahydrocannabinol, and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract and it’s a result of heating cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) and decarboxylating it. CBD comes in many forms, including capsules, oils, patches, sprays, extracts, and topical medications that contain a significant amount of cannabidiol. CBD oil, lotion, cream – or even a bath bomb can be the best choice for reducing inflammation and relieving pain or joint pain. Furthermore, a CBD patch or a tincture or spray is designed to place under the tongue for CBD to enter the bloodstream directly.
5. CBD products can result in a positive drug test
Full-spectrum CBD products contain all compounds found in cannabis plants, such as cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. For this reason, it is possible to test positive for THC after using CBD products. So if you’re concerned about passing a drug test and unsure whether you are using products that contain THC or not, check it with the third-party lad.
Knowing these interesting and helpful facts makes there no reason to worry about the safety of using CBD. But if you decide to try CBD, consider all its side effects and ensure you get it from a trustworthy source.
