A Detailed Report about CBD Oil

What is CBD according to Hempnewsbiz?

The most popular question on internet about CBD is what we know and don’t know about CBD. The CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound in the cannabis family that occurs naturally in the cannabis plant.

 

The Delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is probably the most famous chemical compound of cannabis thanks to its psychoactive properties — but CBD is rapidly gaining ground due to its potential therapeutic benefits.

 

How does CBD work?

CBD (and THC) works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system in our bodies, a regulatory system made up of naturally occurring cannabinoid-like molecules. These cannabinoids, as they are called, act like neurotransmitters, relaying messages through the body to help maintain homeostasis. The Cannabinoids like CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system at two known receptors: CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors are found primarily in the brain — where it is involved in cognition, memory, motor skills, and pain — but also in the peripheral nervous system, liver, thyroid, uterus, and more. THC attaches itself to these receptors, inhibiting the release of the neurotransmitters and possibly increasing the release of others, altering normal functioning.

 

Is CBD Legal?

According to Hempnewsbiz: technically yes, but the answer is not completely cut and dried

 

The hemp plant comes in many different varieties. For decades, the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has treated them all the same way, designating cannabis as a Schedule I substance. Schedule I drugs are considered to have “no currently accepted medical use and high potential for abuse” and are therefore illegal to produce or possess.

 

However, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the Farm Bill) changed all that. “Cannabis,” which the legislation defines as cannabis containing no more than 0.3% THC, has been legalized by the Farm Bill nationwide.

 

What are the risks of taking CBD?

A 2017 World Health Organization report found that the CBD, in its pure state, is safe, well tolerated by humans and animals and not likely to cause physical dependence or abuse. According to the Hempnewsbiz, 1,500 mg of CBD has been safely taken by mouth daily for up to four weeks.

However, there are still some risks associated with taking the CBD that you should be aware of:

 

Side effects

Dry mouth, low blood pressure, dizziness, and drowsiness have been reported, according to the National Institutes of Health, as have signs of liver injury, although the latter is less common.

Limited search

Classification of CBD as a Schedule I drug severely limits the amount of studies researchers can perform on the compound. What is there is promising, but there are still many unknowns about which conditions CBD can help treat and how much people need to take it for it to be effective. This means that if you are taking CBD to treat a specific disease, you may be taking too much, too little or completely wasting your money.

Insufficient organization

There are no standards in place for producing, testing, or labeling CBD products, making any kind of federal oversight or quality control impossible. In fact, Penn Medicine researchers have found that nearly 70 percent of CBD products purchased online contain either more CBD than the label indicated — which can be dangerous — or less CBD than stated, which could negate any potential benefits. Many products also contain significant amounts of THC.
