Canabidol CBD: Seven common mistakes
We hear about CBD more and more often and, unfortunately, not always in a flattering way. If some important benefits associated with hiring him have now been established, we must also deal with the aftermath of that obstructionism that has accompanied him for a long time, branding him – almost without appeal – as a ‘drug’.
Beneficial properties and assumption methods: short guide
As we know, this is not the case at all and indeed medical science is questioning itself more vigorously every day about the therapeutic potential of CBD (or cannabidiol, a metabolite of cannabis sativa). As for the methods of taking this substance which is not at all psychotropic or psychoactive, they are the most diverse:
– topical application,
– seasoning for foods,
– invigorating tea and herbal teas,
– vape with e-cig.
The beneficial properties of CBD are above all anti-stress and anti-inflammatory but also anti-emetic and improve the quality of sleep. Let’s try to focus on 7 common mistakes that are made when dealing with this topic in a little depth.
Canabidol CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause a high
We must remember locally that in cannabis sativa there are, among other substances, Thc (i.e. Tetrahydrocannabinol) and Cbd. The first is to be associated with the typical concept of high, since it has a psychoactive effect and therefore goes to alter the mind. The perceptual abilities of the brain are affected and there is a feeling of lightheadedness. The second, on the other hand, is known and appreciated precisely for its not being psychotropic but rather endowed with important medicinal properties (it does not impact the psyche).
The effects produced are not sedative
It happens to see described the effects produced by CBD as sedatives. Here is another myth to dispel, as medical studies have suggested that no such effects are caused. If anything, cannabidiol would be able to broaden the perception of the mind, favoring creativity and concentration. The fact that CBD is able to alleviate states of anxiety completes the beneficial picture. The first time you take CBD, however, you may have a slight drowsiness (which disappears afterwards).
CBD is not yet legal anywhere in the world
In Italy since 2016 the sale of light cannabis and CBD products has been made legal but this plant continues to be banned and hindered in many countries. Often exceptions are made for CBD products: containing minimal quantities of Thc, therefore not being directly connected to the high, their trade is authorized. There are places in the world where cannabis and CBD are still considered as one and where the laws have not been updated, which is why you must always be careful.
Marijuana and hemp are not the same
Often there is still confusion when it comes to marijuana and hemp, as they tend to be used interchangeably. It will then be correct to specify that while marijuana has a high concentration of Thc, which makes you euphoric, hemp contains a minimal amount and is instead rich in cannabidiol. This is why it is increasingly used in cooking, to make food supplements.
Canabidol CBD does not hurt when given to pets
Veterinary medicine is conducting increasingly in-depth studies on CBD and its applications for the well-being and health of pets (dogs, cats, horses and more). It is believed to have the ability to reduce anxiety states, due to leaving for a trip or in the case of abandonment syndrome when the owner leaves the house, and that it is also able to soothe pain and certain unpleasant symptoms (inappetence , bad sleep, etc.).
Canabidol CBD Products are not all the same
Not all products containing CBD are the same and able to bring about the same effects in those who take them. Cbd must always be of quality, produced and cultivated and then extracted and processed according to the highest standards. If in the past you have tried a product with poor quality CBD, do not be discouraged: you need to look more carefully and rely on serious realities.
It is wrong to exceed the dosage to have greater effects
The dosage of CBD varies from individual to individual and it is always good to approach the intake routine gradually, so as to slowly find one’s own balance. In short, it is wrong to exceed the dosage with the aim of obtaining greater and stronger or lasting effects. The factors that come into play to understand what the right dosage of CBD is for a person are: weight, type of metabolism, frequency of intake, overall health of the body.
