Since it’s legalization for medical and or recreational uses in some states in the US and other nations around the world, the therapeutic nature of the CBD-rich oil has changed the whole concept and perception of cannabis. Considering many health personnel aren’t educated and/or inexperienced when it comes to cannabis, this guide will aim to guide you through everything CBD by trained and practicing Pharmacists.

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is widely regarded as a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant. Practically incapable of intoxication, CBD comes with a wide array of therapeutic benefits capable of treating different ailments. Some of which include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Anxiety
  • Antibiotic-resistant infections
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Crohn’s, diabetes
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Cardiovascular disease

Should You Use CBD or THC?

Cannabidiol (the calming specialist) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (the high specialist) are the mainstays in cannabis therapeutics. This is due to the fact that they work best together. While the CBD and THC work hand in gloves to potentiate each other’s curative qualities, the results do vary because while the CBD enhances THC’s painkilling and anticancer properties, it also lessens the THC’s psychoactivity. The moment both components are combined in equal proportion in a product or strain, CBD will lower the ceiling on a THC high while prolonging its duration.

What Are the Best CBD Uses?

When it comes to determining the best way to consume CBD, the answer is simple with the most common mediums being smoking or vaping. When heated, the cannabis concentrates extracts can be inhaled with certain vaping devices and can take affect nearly immediately, however tend to only last for about an hour. Alternatively, a wide array of CBD patients and cannabis enthusiasts prefer non-inhalable products made of cannabis oil concentrates. After consumption, the full force of the CBD takes longer to be felt, yet effects can last for a couple of hours.

What's the Difference between Hemp & Marijuana?

Considering the CBD and cannabis emanates from the same plant source, their potencies are very different.

  • Cannabis

Widely regarded as marijuana, cannabis emanates from the sativa plant rich in over 500 composites. This drug can be smoked, consumed as edible/oils and of course gives a high. It also serves as a panacea for nausea, pain relief, glaucoma, epilepsy and more.

  • CBD

The CBD or Cannabidiol is a chemical component that resides in the cannabis sativa plant. Unlike its THC counterpart, the CBD isn’t psychoactive and cannot give a high. Thanks to years of research, the approval of the drug wasn’t far away as the year 2018 saw the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognized the drug (Epidiolex) as a potent platform for two types of epilepsy.

Are There Any Side Effects?

CBD, like most drugs we see in pharmacies, come with side effects as well as expiration dates. With that in mind, some of the most common side effects associated with the consumption of CBD includes the following.

  • Nausea
  • Fatigue and irritability.

In addition, the drug has a knack of raising the levels of other medications already consumed, which can be an unpleasant experience for the patient.
