Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in cannabis plants.
In most cases, products with CBD cannabidiol are considered to be food supplements that are recommended for daily consumption, in order to restore the tired body, improve your well-being and supplement your diet with the right ingredients.
CBD (Cannabidiol ) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) are the most well-known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, mostly found in flowers of the plant. THC, which causes psychoactive effects, is strictly controlled. In most countries, the usage of products high in THC is only possible with strict control and supervision.
CBD, unlike THC, does not appear to have any psychotropic (“high”) effects, (i.e., CBD is not intoxicated, does not cause dizziness or euphoria) and is not prohibited or strictly controlled.
It is impossible to overdo with CBD, it is not possible to poison or otherwise harm yourself. The World Health Organization, based on the latest scientific sources, emphasizes that even a 1500 mg CBD is completely tolerated by humans or animals, without any health-related side effects. Very high levels can cause dry mouth, drowsiness, and may reduce blood pressure. But there is no need to consume as much CBD as possible. Usually, less means more.
CBD has a weak effect on the cannabinoid receptor CB1 and CB2, but this cannabinoid acts well on the GPR55 and the serotonin receptor 5-HT1A and is valuable for many other properties.
CBD has strong anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, antibacterial, anti-fungal properties. Suppresses the spread of cancerous or mutated cells and promotes apoptosis, perfectly helps to remove toxins from the body, and strengthens the immune system.
CBD has strong antipsychotic properties and is therefore widely used to reduce depression, anxiety, aggression, and anger.
In 2015, the journal “Pharmacology and Pharmacy” published a research study where it was stated that full-spectrum cannabis flower extracts are much more effective than isolated CBD in alleviating symptoms of certain disorders.
The full range of cannabis flower extracts contains other cannabinoids, such as terpenes, flavonoids, and other natural substances that work together synergistically, reinforcing each other’s effects and promoting better bioavailability.
