The medical use of Cannabis and its derivatives

We are aware that a lot of people when hearing about cannabis do not have a positive thought at first. In fact, most people think of it only as an illegal plant that causes addiction. Others know about the psychoactive effects of some cannabis derivatives and the ability to “make people high”. But lately, we are seeing and hearing positive things about some of the cannabis derivatives. In fact, in recent years, cannabis compounds such as CBD are very popular for their therapeutic properties.

Cannabidiol or CBD, which is one of the cannabinoids present in cannabis varieties is the perfect example. This natural compound mainly part of hemp or industrial hemp is helping humans and not only. CBD is now part of many industries with the health and wellness industry being the most common. That is why we think that understanding CBD basics helps us understand the medical use of cannabis in return. So, in this article, we will explain the basics of CBD, its differences with other cannabinoids such as THC, and the medical use of it.

A brief explanation of Cannabidiol(CBD)

CBD is the main factor that is continuously making people think more positively about cannabis in general. The reason behind this impact is the therapeutic properties of CBD and the medicinal potential. Cannabidiol has tremendous therapeutic potential that is helping humans and animals live a better life. This natural remedy not only helps in treating many health issues. In addition to that, CBD is able to manage the overall health of our body and mind. But, where do we get CBD from, and how come it is so beneficial? Below we will explain what CBD is, its origin, and the ability to interact with the endocannabinoid system.

It is true that cannabis is mostly causing negative side effects, mainly because of misuse. There are many types of cannabinoid plants and these types produce several compounds. Some of these compounds, even though natural, have psychoactive effects on users. THC is the perfect example of that, as it is the one cannabinoid that causes addiction. THC and CBD are the most active ingredients of cannabis plants but are quite different from each other. Besides being beneficial when used properly, THC has psychoactive effects on users, thus causing addiction. CBD is simply beneficial and does not have that negative effect on people.

The legality of Cannabis Sativa strains of Marijuana and Hemp

THC is the reason why marijuana as a cannabis Sativa variety is illegal is that it is not safe to use. Marijuana contains more than the allowed percentage of THC which in most countries is less than 0.3%. Marijuana may have more than 20% THC, so you can understand how unsafe it is. But, by federal law, there is another strain of Sativa that is legal under a simple condition. If there is any cannabis strain that contains less than 0.3% THC, then it is safe to use and legal. And there is one strain that meets that condition, hemp or industrial hemp. Hemp may meet that condition and in addition, has the ability to produce more than 20% CBD.

The cultivation of hemp is a trend nowadays and the main reason for it is the production of CBD in the process. As we mentioned above, CBD has a wide range of usage in many industries. But, the health industry is the one benefiting the most so far. A lot of scientific research has been done to determine the potential of CBD in improving health. The therapeutic properties of CBD are many and we will not go into details of any of them. But, in case you want to know more here is a CBD guide that covers everything you need to know before using it.

In conclusion, we must say, it is clear that CBD has medical use and is quite successful in it. CBD is good for the brain, heart, or skin. It has the ability to treat many health disorders and help manage a good state of health.
