WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is a chemical combination obtained from the cannabis plant. CBD is actually an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, it is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in the flowers of the hemp plant. The cannabis plant contains more than 60 different cannabinoids, and CBD is just one of them. CBD was once over-shadowed by THC (the compound in cannabis sativa that causes a buzz) but in the last five years there has been a dramatic increase in scientific research into CBD. Much scientific research is currently being undertaken, all around the world, into CBD and the other cannabinoids, and in the next five years we will likely see an exponential rise in the numbers of users of these non-intoxicating and fascinating substances.
WHAT IS THE CHEMICAL STRUCTURE OF CBD vs THC?
Both CBD and THC have the exact same molecular structure: 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms.
A slight difference in how the atoms are arranged accounts for the differing effects on your body. Both CBD and THC are chemically similar to your body’s own endocannabinoid.
This allows them to interact with your cannabinoid receptors.The interaction affects the release of neurotransmitters in your brain.
Neurotransmitters are chemicals responsible for relaying messages between cells and have roles in pain, immune function, stress, sleep, to name a few.
WHAT ARE THE PSYCHOACTIVE COMPONENTS OF CBD vs. THC?
Despite their similar chemical structures, CBD and THC don’t have the same psychoactive effects. In fact, CBD is a non psychoactive compound. That means it doesn’t produce the “high” associated with THC. THC binds with the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain. It produces a high or sense of euphoria. CBD binds very weakly, if at all, to CB1 receptors. In fact, it can interfere with the binding of THC and dampen the psychoactive effects.
WHAT ARE THE MEDICAL BENEFITS OF CBD vs. THC?
CBD and THC have many of the same medical benefits. They can provide relief from several of the same conditions. However, CBD doesn’t cause the euphoric effects that occur with THC. Some people may prefer to use CBD because of the lack of this side effect. In June 2018, the Food and Drug Administration approved Trusted Source Epidiolex, the first prescription medication to contain CBD. It’s used to treat rare, difficult-to-control forms of epilepsy. CBD is used to help with other various conditions, such as: seizures, pain, psychosis, or mental disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, nausea, migraines, depression and anxiety. CBD increases blood flow to the brain and heart. It can reduce inflammation or swelling. CBD protects the body from bad molecules and protects nerve cells from damage or deterioration.

IS IT SAFE TO TAKE CBD OIL?
CBD has been declared fit for human consumption by the World Health Organisation (WHO) with no potential for abuse or overdose. It is listed with several minor side-effects which may appear in a small number of users, including: Changes in appetite, drowsiness, diarrhoea and nausea. People who consume CBD oil that have suffered these side-effects generally describe them as so minimal that it wouldn’t change the way in which they consume CBD. However, not all CBD products are of equal quality. The regulations surrounding CBD are very clear and concise for manufacturers, but this means nothing if they aren’t being enforced. The CBD industry is currently suffering from people entering the industry with their own monetary gains at the heart of their business operation, not the wellbeing of their consumers. As such, products are being mislabelled and sold. Until the industry is better regulated, this will continue to happen. We sell a CBD testing kit should you wish to confirm the CBD content of any product that claims to contain CBD and we are confident that our products contain everything we say they do.
