Whenever you go in the United States today, some products are infused with CBD. Some products that have CBD infusions are CBD gummies, dog biscuits, cosmetics, vape pens, capsules, tablets, and of course, the CBD extract itself. CBD has been recognized to alleviate chronic pain and other conditions.
For those who have no idea, CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of the compounds found in the cannabis plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD are two of the most highly abundant cannabinoids present in cannabis that is used today. CBD also plays a role in sleep, appetite, metabolism, and immune function.
THC and CBD may be found in a similar plant. However, there are differences between these two cannabinoids. For instance, THC is responsible for the addictive effect of the plant. On the contrary, CBD has the same pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory as THC, but without the psychoactive effects.
Even though humans have been using cannabis for thousands of years, the cannabis products that are available today are not the same cannabis that was traditionally consumed. After the prohibition of the product in the 70s, illicit growers bred strains of cannabis with higher amounts of THC.
Because of this breeding, the amount of THC is way more abundant than CBD. In 2014, it was found that the ratio of THC to CBD is 80:1. CBD is an excellent alternative for medicine made by factories. However, it has been banned due to misconceptions and false beliefs.
