With the rapidly increasing popularity of and awareness about CBD, more and more people are hopping aboard the train, hoping to try and benefit from this canna-compound.
Although there is a gospel truth around its benefits, that which the choir knows all too well, the stigma and misinformation still withstand. There is no denying that there is still hesitation and reservation around taking CBD in its various forms and products, but for many first time users, it can be scary.
We’re addressing some of the many questions people may have about the use of CBD, including how we help them find the right product for them:
What is CBD? Is it the same is weed?
This is a commonly asked question because it’s an easy confusion to have. Weed, aka marijuana, also formally known as Cannabis, is the plant that we’re all more familiar with. An alternative source is hemp plants, which are a type of Cannabis that contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Cannabidiol (CBD for short) is one of over 400 compounds, including other cannabinoids, such as THC present in this plant.
So essentially, CBD is a part of Cannabis, but it’s a small, isolated compound that is incredibly potent and can be derived for its benefits.
Will I get high?
This is perhaps the top most commonly asked question, because of the origin and source of CBD. People often wonder and are concerned about ‘getting high’ and losing their sense of control and orientation when they take CBD, but it’s important to note that this not what happens. CBD is not psychoactive in nature the way THC is.
Instead, CBD works by reacting with your body’s existing endocannabinoid (ECS) system, reacting wit the receptors to encourage relaxation and calming effects in the body. It’s a physiological and psychological response, but it’s very different from being high.
Am I going to get addicted?
As mentioned, CBD and THC are both chemical compounds that insert in our ECS receptors. However, different elements within them are what help regulate functions performed by the ECS. While THC reacts to produce a high among other functions, CBD does not. It is also naturally processed by the ECS, which means it’s something our bodies naturally process and cannot become addicted to.
What product is right for me?
When it comes to finding the right product, there are different factors to consider. Your history with Cannabis in general, which includes THC use, what dosage you’re looking for, which affects in particular you seek, and what form is right for you.
For some people, smoking is manageable, so vaping is a good option. Others prefer ingesting, so flowers, while others want convenience, which is why gummies work.
