THC-free and CBD-rich marijuana benefits.
Marijuana without THC: CBD weed, is a product that is entirely free of side effects and full of advantages thanks to its high CBD content. It is composed, specifically, of Sativa marijuana inflorescences with THC less than 0.2%.
The CBD flowers in our CBD online shop catalogue all come from organic indoor or greenhouse cultivation, in which all the factors that guarantee the plant’s profitable growth are controlled. For example, the nutrients, amount of light, moisture and soil pH are monitored continuously by the farmers to ensure that the products are rich in CBD and beneficial.
But what exactly are the benefits of THC-free marijuana?
THC-free marijuana and its benefits.
You should know that THC is the psychotropic cannabinoid of marijuana. It acts on the psyche of those who take it, modifies it and makes it euphoric or, depending on the type of weed, extremely relaxing. But THC can also have significant side effects, including a feeling of time dilation, tachycardia, anxiety and depression.
Not to mention the fact that tetrahydrocannabinol can be addictive and addictive (it seems that the people most at risk are minors).
On the other hand, marijuana without THC, or better, with THC percentages below 0.2%, has no psychotropic effect and is rich in CBD.
Cannabidiol is the non-psychotropic active ingredient of cannabis, so it does not affect the psyche of those who take it. Instead, it has hugely beneficial effects on our bodies. Here are the main results of CBD:
- antiemetic (against nausea and vomiting)
- hypotension controller
It is no coincidence that it has been the subject of much scientific research (concentrated in recent years) which first studied the interactions of the CBD with our bodies.
It is how the CBD from CBD cannabis interacts with our body.
CBD and other cannabinoids, including THC, interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system produces cannabinoids and regulates our body’s most essential functions: from sleep to mood, from hormone production to appetite, from pain to metabolism and much more.
More generally, the fundamental role of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain the body’s homeostasis, i.e. harmony following environmental changes and stimuli. If previously it was thought that cannabinoid receptors were only found in the brain, now science has discovered that they are found throughout our body … including the skin!
The human body naturally produces endocannabinoids to support this system. However, just like any other beneficial substance produced by our body, there may be a deficiency or extra need for cannabinoids.
It is where cannabis comes in, especially CBD weed rich in cannabidiol.
The scientific community has discovered that CBD is interacting with our endocannabinoid system. It determines the beneficial effects we mentioned earlier, except for the anti-epileptic effect (more about this in the next paragraph).
Therefore, even products containing this active ingredient, such as THC-free legal marijuana, have these effects.
The CBD from CBD buds and the cannabinoid receptors in our bodies.
The cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 interact correctly with the CBD cannabis. Interaction with CB2 produces anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulating effects, while interaction with CB1 produces almost all other results, from analgesic to antispasmodic.
Instead, it seems that the antiepileptic effect derives from the agonistic and antagonistic action. Cannabidiol acts on ion channels, transmembrane receptors and neurotransmitter transporters.
But there is more! Cannabidiol also modifies the shape of the cannabinoid CB1 receptor and prevents it from binding directly to THC. For this reason, cannabis varieties that are THC but rich in CBD have fewer side effects than others. In contrast, legal weed (with THC <0.2% and high percentages of CBD) have all the advantages of cannabidiol, without the effect of THC.
Science has always been committed to clarifying the exact dosage of CBD to contrast many diseases, including epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia and many more. The studies’ results conducted in the laboratory and also on several people have been excellent. However, we still need more before cannabidiol is recognised as a therapeutic in all respects.
