10 Facts You Should Know About CBD

In many periferal tissues, in the imunity, reproduction and digestion system, to be precise. Also in the hormonal glands, arteries, lungs, eyes, heart, bones and skin.

1. Key component:

Cannabidiol is a key component of hemp. It is on of the 60 compounds that are unique for plants marked by a common name „cannabinoids“. Cannabidiol, also known as CBD and THC are usually the most common cannabinoids in the plant and therefore mostly studied.


2. CBD has no psychoactive effects:

CBD does not have any psychoactive effects as THC which invokes euphoria in connection with special neurotical receptors CB1 and CB2 in brain. CBD does not bind to these receptors therefore cannabidiol will not let you have any psychotropic state of mind.


3. CBD from hemp is legal

CBD can be produced from medical hemp or technical hemp plants. According to the federal law marihuana is illegal in many US states but not in all of them. Hemp is therefore grown in many other countries and then imported to for example USA. For the end-users it is then much easier to use hemp for treatment with CBD content, without breaking any law.


4. Level of cannabinoids and their difference

Level of CBD and THC differ in each cannabinoid plant. Marihuana plants grown for recreational use have high THC level and significantly smaller amount of CBD. In technical hemp plants there is understandably high level of CBD (cannabidiol) healing substances and low amount of THC.


5. No need for prescription

Here in Czech Republic everybody can order CBD products online legally, produced from technical hemp plants. For any use and in any amounts and without medical prescription. There is a problem for people who live in countries were technical hemp is illegal. They need to have a medical prescription on all the medical hemp products which contain CBD.

These advantages are also useful for patients who suffer from temporary anxiety and depression because of their serious health state.

Products with the THC content help to decrease spreading of cancer cells and other types of tumorous diseases. National Cancer Institute carried out several studies which prove that cannabidiol can have protective effects against cancer. This overview includes research that analyses treatment with help of CBD for different types of cancer. For example, breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer.


9. Reason for lowering THC

According to research published in the magazine British Journal of Psychiatry it was found out that CBD compensated negative effects of THC. It seems that CBD could prevent THC to worsen memory. CBD can therefore reduce paranoia and other negative side effects that are connected with marihuana consumption with high THC level.


10. Helps children with asthmatic seizures

American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted the University of California in San Francisco responsibility to research the effects of CBD (cannabidiol) medication on children with uncontrolled epileptic seizures. Participants of this study were between 1 to 18 years. All of them suffered from similar symptoms, resistant towards standard treatment. Many of them have Dravet syndrome that starts in early childhood and causes frequent seizures. In the first months of using CBD seizures decreased in tenths of percentage.
