What is CBD: the basics and its recreational benefits

Currently, there is a trend to treat diseases with CBD and we are here to tell you what it is and what its effects are

“What is CBD?” “Is it as good as they say to relieve discomfort?” or “Will I get high if I consume it?” You’ve asked yourself these questions or eventually will, or someone close to you has. Presently, you can read online publications on the multiple benefits of CBD for various illnesses, even as preventive medicine. There are many questions and, fortunately, there are more and more answers.

CBD or Cannabidiol is a cannabinoid found in the stem, flower, and seeds of the plant Cannabis Sativa. It is the second most important component of the plant and, above all, it does not produce psychoactive effects. That is, it does not act in the same way as THC does on the central nervous system.

There are plants that have the same concentration of CBD and THC

The reason why the amount of CBD is lower in most marijuana plants is because that was the goal. The people who cultivate it sought to make the psychoactive effects of THC prevail. Thus, the types of plants with the highest percentage of CBD were relegated.

However, in recent years, studies and discoveries of the use and medicinal effect of Cannabidiol have increased. For this reason, this component has been seen once again as an important option for cultivation, so now there are plants that have the same concentration of CBD as THC. This is how psychoactive effects are minimized and medicinal are maintained.

The properties of CBD and its commercialization

Unlike THC, Cannabidiol is not demonized in society. There are even several countries where it is marketed and prescribed for therapeutic and medicinal uses. For example, tests have been performed on people affected by epilepsy, discovering that seizures decrease. They also reduce crises in people suffering from anxiety and depression; it is a potent analgesic in premenstrual syndrome.

Another of the effects attributed to CBD is that it is neuroprotective, that is, it protects the nervous system. They also delay degenerative processes or neuronal death. Above all, for people who suffer from Alzheimer’s or have suffered a stroke. In addition, a positive effect has been demonstrated in people with insomnia, digestive problems, migraines, joint pain, and respiratory diseases. For this reason, it has become an effective method to treat various conditions.

The recreational use

Over the years several artists and creatives have used cannabis as an extra tool to stimulate their minds. They have recently found more efficient ways to create with plants that have higher levels of CBD. CBD promotes relaxation, but also euphoria and a mood booster at the same time. That’s great when you don’t want to smoke or drink and lie for a while until the effect decreases. Cannabis rich in CBD is used to calm anxiety, but also as a stimulant to get things done.

People who advocate for alternative medicine find CBD products to be a great option. Another aspect that stands out is that they can be consumed by people of any age. On the other hand, you can find a wide range of items on the Internet and in some stores. From oils and drops to capsules, creams, nutritional supplements, and sex lubricants.

“CBD counteracts the effects of THC”

The CBD component is attributed to more therapeutic and pharmacological properties. In fact, as mentioned earlier, it is the part that slightly counteracts the effects of THC. The latter is the one that causes many of the psychoactive effects when marijuana is consumed in some form. Which is why its decriminalization or legalization in some countries is still under debate. Although legal substances such as alcohol or tobacco cause more deaths than smoking weed from time to time.
