FIND OUT WHAT IS THE CANNABIS CBD, WHAT ITS EFFECTS ARE AND HOW IT CAN BE TAKEN.
The questions that crowd the heads of consumers and the novice on the subject of Cannabis Light are usually the same.
It will do well, will it hurt?
Is it legal?
Will it cause me mental alterations like the classic marijuana or not?
Let’s be clear: when we talk about CBD (cannabidiol), high percentage in light marijuana, we are talking about a cannabinoid, a compound that interacts with our nervous system through the endocannabinoid system.
Cannabinoids are present in dozens of hemp plants.
The most common and famous are THC and CBD. Each of these differs in terms of effects and values produced by the other. Let’s understand together what they are and how they work.
CBD and THC: what are the differences?
Although both are cannabinoids produced by cannabis plants, the substantial difference between these two molecules consists in the production of psychotropic effects.
The CBD does not produce any and this consequently makes it legal in most countries of the world; THC, on the other hand, is a psychoactive metabolite, going to alter the normal perception of space-time.
Precisely this aspect of THC makes it illegal or limited to small quantities in many countries, given that its psychoactive function and its possible side effects such as paranoia and anxiety are still cause for discussion at a global level.
CBD is not psychoactive, has no known side effects and is also a natural nemesis of THC.
The function of CBD acts directly on the nervous system, on the receptors of the frontal lobe.
To be precise, it acts where the encocannabinoid system is located (otherwise called SEC).
This system is involved in many physiological processes, such as the sensation of pain, appetite or mood.
The SEC has two receptors which are CB1 and CB2: on the first it binds and acts THC, on the second CBD.
The CBD study found antispasmodic, antipsychotic, anticonvulsant and neuroprotective properties.
Furthermore, it seems that it is capable of halting the metastatic spread of breast cancer (but studies are still in progress).

CBD: what is the most correct way to take it?
Given that, unlike THC, the CBD is absolutely legal, its marketing does not find great obstacles.
Precisely for this reason we can find its principles in different products, depending on the extraction used.
CBD Crystals represent the purest form of cannabidiol.
They are obtained by processing CBD extracts, which undergo further development phases which increase the purity of the final product.
The name of crystals is due to the solidification of the material, obtained when the purity threshold exceeds 80%. Refining continues until a final product is obtained with a purity of around 99%.
The CBD oil is the most widespread product, available in various concentrations and with a wide range of possibilities of intake.
There are various way to take it, including the sublingual one, recommended for the speed with which the effects are perceived. Or the one in capsules, for a more correct CBD absorption, but slow for the body.
Again, CBD can be used for the creation of ointments, conditioners or lotions dedicated to those suffering from disorders such as arthritis or other chronic inflammation.
Just apply the contents to the affected area to see the pain reduced.

What are the functions of the CBD?
CBD is used to treat various health disorders, of a more or less serious nature.
Having among its properties to function as an anti-convulsant, it can be an extraordinary support for those suffering from convulsions and / or muscle spasms.
Another widespread and ever increasing use of CBD as a curative remedy is for various non-physical diseases, which can however invalidate the life of some subjects.
Let’s talk about anxiety disorders, such as obsessive compulsive or post traumatic.
CBD can be used to manage these disorders, alleviating anxiety and helping to fight insomnia and depression.
Still CBD has extraordinary anti-inflammatory properties, protects and moisturizes the skin.
Precisely for this reason it is also used in cosmetics, thanks to its principles and the nutrients that reside in the product.
Although CBD does not present major side effects, making excessive and unreasonable use of it is not advisable.
The CBD is absolutely legal and purchasable, but it is always better to consult with a doctor before deciding to take it, even to be better educated on its functions and on the ways and times of use.
