CBD and misunderstandings about it

CBD Oil info

CBD does not cause drug intoxication and changes in mental state, but it causes quite a lot of noise among scientists and patients. The past year has seen a surge of interest in cannabidiol (CBD), a non-narcotic cannabis compound with significant therapeutic properties. A lot of entrepreneurs have begun to produce and sell CBD from industrial hemp without an intoxicating effect. But along with the growing interest, there are more and more misconceptions about him.

1. “CBD for medicine. THC for fun.”

We often get questions from people who are looking for “CBD is a medical part” and not “THC is a substance for entertainment” with a euphoric effect. In fact, THC – the culprit of the intoxicating effect – has excellent therapeutic properties. Scientists at the Scripps Research Center in San Diego reported that THC inhibits an enzyme involved in the formation of beta-amyloid plaque – a hallmark associated with Alzheimer’s disease – dementia. The US federal government recognizes a single molecule THC as an antineoplastic and appetite enhancer, considering it to be a Schedule III category pharmaceutical intended for drugs with little potential for abuse.

But the whole cannabis flower, which is the only natural source of THC, is still classified as a dangerous Schedule I drug with no medical value.

2. “THC is a bad cannabinoid. CBD is a good cannabinoid.”

Interesting strategy: Praise CBD while continuing to demonize THC. Cannabis die-hards exploit the good news about CBD to further stigmatize high-THC hemp, THC itself, as a bad cannabinoid, while CBD is framed as a good cannabinoid. Why? Because CBD does not give the effect of euphoria.

3. “CBD is more effective without THC.”

THC and CBD are the power pair of hemp compounds – they work best together. Scientific research has shown that CBD and THC interact synergistically to enhance each other’s therapeutic effects. British researchers have shown that CBD enhances the anti-inflammatory properties of THC in colitis. Scientists at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco have determined that the combination of CBD and THC has a stronger antitumor effect than the substances alone when tested on brain and breast cancer cells. And extensive clinical studies have shown that CBD combined with THC is more beneficial against neuropathic pain than any single compound.

4. "Single-molecule pharmaceuticals are superior to the 'raw' medicinal properties of the whole plant."

According to the federal government, the specific components of the hemp plant (THC, CBD) have medical value, but the plant itself has no medical value. The privilege remains with Big Pharma. Single molecule medicine is the predominant corporate FDA-approved way, but it is not the only way, and it is not necessarily the optimal way to use cannabis therapy. It contains several hundred compounds including various flavonoids, aromatic terpenes and many small cannabinoids in addition to THC and CBD. Each of these compounds has specific healing properties, but when combined, they create what scientists call a holistic “entourage effect” or “ensemble effect,” so that the therapeutic effect of the entire plant is greater than the sum of its single molecules. However, the Food and Drug Administration does not approve plants as medicines.

5. "CBD is not psychoactive"

CBD is not intoxicating, but it is misleading to describe it as non-psychoactive. When a clinically depressed patient takes a low dose of CBD-enriched oil and improves for the first time in a long time, it is clear that CBD is a powerful mood-altering agent. It's better to say: "CBD is not psychoactive like THC"rather than just claiming he's not psychoactive. CBD will not “smoke” a person, but it can positively affect his psyche. Moderate doses of CBD are mildly stimulating. But very high doses can cause a biphasic effect and may promote sleep. If the CBD-rich hemp flower produces a sedative effect, it's most likely due to its myrcene-rich terpene profile. Myrcene is a terpene with sedative and analgesic properties.

6. "Psychoactivity is inherently a side effect"

According to the politically correct Catechism of Addiction, marijuana euphoria is an undesirable side effect. Big Pharma is into synthesizing medicated marijuana-like molecules that don't intoxicate people, though it's not clear why mild euphoric feelings are intrinsically negative for a sick or healthy person, for that matter. In ancient Greece, the word "euphoria" meant "health", a state of well-being. Far from being an unhealthy side effect, cannabis' euphoric qualities are tied to the plant's therapeutic value. “We have to think of cannabis as a drug first,” said Dr. Tod Mikuriya, “it happens to have some psychoactive properties, like many drugs, but it’s better than an intoxicant that has multiple therapeutic properties.” ."

7. "High dose CBD works better than low dose."

CBD isolates (or crystals) require higher doses to be effective than CBD rich flower extract. But that doesn't mean that the separated CBD molecule has better therapeutic properties than CBD-rich hemp. Clinician and patient reports indicate that a synergistic combination of CBD, THC, and other cannabis components can be effective at low doses of as little as 2.5mg CBD and/or 2.5mg THC. Some patients may require significantly higher doses to obtain satisfactory results. Keep in mind that CBD and THC, and hemp in general, are biphasic, meaning that low and high doses can have opposite effects. An excessive amount of CBD may be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose.

8. "CBD converts to THC in the human stomach"

When used orally (under the tongue), CBD is well tolerated by humans. But concerns about possible harmful side effects that could limit CBD's therapeutic effects and potential have arisen following misconceptions that CBD converts to intoxicating THC in the stomach. All this is not true. There are many clinical trials that confirm that even at high doses, CBD does not have the properties of THC.

9. “Legalizing CBD, but not cannabis, is an adequate solution”

Many US states allow "only CBD" (with little or no THC). 28 states have legalized medical marijuana (not just CBD). Some states restrict sources of CBD-rich foods and define illnesses that can be accessed from CBD; others are not. But a CBD product with little THC doesn't work for everyone. Parents of children with epilepsy have noticed that the addition of THC (or THCA, the first version of THC) helps in the fight against seizures. For some epileptics, THC-dominant foods are more effective than CBD-rich foods. They need access to a wide range of cannabis for healing, not just small amounts of THC. Not everything suits everyone the same.

10. “The marijuana ban does not apply to CBD. CBD is legal if it comes from the hemp seed or stem."

Nice try, but CBD cannot be "squeezed out" or extracted from hemp seeds. It can be extracted from flowers, leaves and only a small amount (if at all) from the cannabis stem.
