WHAT CAUSES CBD? Posted on 23 Mar 10:11
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, the second most important after the THC and cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. If you look at the cannabinoid content of a variety, it is quite common to find a THC content of about 12-20 percent, where everything is 20 or more, as is very highly regarded. This is not the case in the CBD - it is rare that such high values of it are to be found; each CBD content, which is 4 percent or more is regarded as a CBD-rich species. Although 1% CBD is already much better than nothing, but in recent years, varieties with 18% CBD have emerged, although they are still rather difficult to come by. Commercially available CBD-rich varieties contain between 8-12% CBD.
WHAT CAUSES CBD?
Initially it was always thought that CBD would modulate and attenuate some of the effects of THC - which was a good reason for growers to neglect it. Recent studies have shown, however, that it is actually the CBD, which potentially has the most medicinal value. It is true that CBD changed the way how THC interacts with our body, but not necessarily negative. It counteracts some of the unwanted side effects that may be associated with high THC doses, and prolong its effects.
Used alone, it has been shown in the CBD that it is applicable and useful in a variety of diseases, ailments and problems. Research has shown that CBD showed promising results in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, Alzheimer's disease,Parkinson's disease, PTSD,and epilepsy, CBD is a component of cannabis that may help the patient to cope with chronic pain, cramps, and arthritis.
Again, it should be noted that CBD, unlike THC, is not psychoactive. Therefore, and tinctures and extracts are used to treat children suffering from debilitating illnesses - such as the above-mentioned case of Charlotte, a cannabis takes tincture, which is made from the aptly called CBD-rich variety "Charlotte's Web", to fight their seizures. Before taking cannabis Charlotte had 1,200 seizures per month - now she has about 3 and shows a balanced behavior.
In addition, CBD has no negative side effects, does not harm the body or mind, is not addictive and can not be overdosed
