Everyone at Superior CBD Hemp Oil gets super focused on talking up the amazing power of cannabinoids for personal health, so we tend to forget that there is still some confusion out in the public about how CBD and THC can be different. After all, they are from the same family of plants, right? Kind of.
There are some extremely important factors about each that you will want to know because it makes a tremendous difference in how your body and mind reacts to them both.
First, a word from Harvard Medical School.
According to this article from Harvard Health Publishing, by Dr. Peter Grinspoon, CBD is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis. But 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. There is even a link within that article to the World Health Organization to state, “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.”
THC – what to expect from everyday pot.
Sometime in the last century, it became a popular notion that hemp and marijuana plants were virtually the same, both offering cannabis with a powerful ‘psychotropic’ result. While depicting a very radical and extremely dramatic recreation of the ‘high’ mental state in the film “Reefer Madness,” that sort of loss of inhibitions were also associated with hemp for all that time, even though hemp offers no psychotropic effects whatsoever.
Not everyone who smoked marijuana throughout those years of prohibition were doing so to get high. Most were relying on the truly beneficial mind and body relief that comes naturally with cannabis. Unfortunately, paranoia and extreme anxiety are very real effects of using strains of cannabis with high THC levels, and anyone sensitive to those sorts of results sometimes “freaked out” and swore off marijuana and anything like it. Which is quite understandable.
Marijuana being illegal and hemp being “guilty by association” didn’t help either. There have been studies going back years regarding the benefits of hemp oil and CBD, but people were too concerned about its legal status to try and seek it out. When some people were having “bad trips” and others were being arrested, a lot of people simply wrote cannabis off as something they may never entertain in their lives…they assumed forever. But maybe not.
Riding the THC wave on a completely different boat.
What Superior CBD Hemp Oil is hearing from customers is how much they value the opportunity to obtain cannabis without the THC. They get relaxation. They alleviate their anxiety. All without the potency of THC that may have triggered their anxiety or paranoia when they tried to use marijuana previously, hoping for the same calming results.
CBD attacks anxiety like a mild tranquilizer, while THC offers feelings of either being stoned or intense, hyper sensations that only feed on any underlying depression or paranoia. Even with marijuana and THC being partially decriminalized, many folks are discovering that the way to feel better naturally is to use completely legal and stable CBD products rather than take any chance on something illegal or too potent. No one wants to roll the dice when it comes to their mental health.
This is a discussion worth having as it has impacted so many people for so many years. Studies mentioned in the Harvard Medical School article highlights CBD use for more than anxiety. Per the article, CBD is commonly used for patients with insomnia, helping them fall asleep and stay asleep. CBD was also considered an option for treating different types of chronic pain, including a study from the European Journal of Pain that showed CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. While yet another study showed CBD inhibiting both inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of pain to treat.
