Researchers have significantly undermined previous CBD stereotypes by proving that the compound can provide people with therapeutic benefits. In recent years, Epidiolex, an FDA-approved CBD medication, and other CBD-based drugs have been adopted to treat a plethora of health conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, epilepsy, and psoriasis
CBD is also very effective in reducing anxiety. The Permanente Journal also published a study where 79% of the participants reported a reduction in anxiety after using CBD. It’s widely agreed that CBD has anti-anxiety effects, making it effective for other anxiety conditions like Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
The History of CBD
In the past, people were sceptical about CBD due to its psychotropic counterpart – THC, but thanks to extensive research, health regulators today generally consider CBD to be safe.
The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine published a study that showed that an oral dose of CBD oil combined with routine psychiatric treatment for PTSD helped reduce these aforementioned symptoms.
While CBD doesn’t increase serotonin levels, it does slightly affect how the brain responds to the serotonin already present in your body. CBD also helps reduce PTSD symptoms. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is characterised by symptoms like intrusive thoughts, re-experiencing traumatic events, avoidance of things that trigger memories of trauma, and nightmares.
This amazing outcome has created a THC:CBD ratio of 1:20+. However, no two CBD Therapy seeds are the same, the cannabinoid content can vary, though 75 percent of the seeds have been found to have extremely low THC contents.
The aromas from this strain are diverse and complex, featuring fruit, berry, sweetness, kiwi, flowers, nectar, raspberry, blackberry, cranberry, blueberry and more. The taste of the strain is almost as impressive as the smell, igniting the tongue with flavours such as mint, maple, hash, lemon grass, citrus, dill, cloves and blackberry.
CBD Therapy is a cannabis strain that was created with the intention of maximising CBD content whilst minimising THC content. This desired ratio makes the strain perfect for medicinal users who are seeking the healing properties of CBD without getting functionally high in the process. The team behind this project have managed to create a hybrid strain that produces flowers with an average CBD content of 8 to 10 percent and an average THC content of 0.5 percent.
As well as serving primarily as a medicinal strain, CBD Therapy can also be used on a recreational basis for smokers seeking a very light and tame high to help them to relax and chill out. As a smoke, CBD Therapy offers almost an entirely body centered high, invoking calming, relaxing and sleeping sensations.
CBD Therapy is an ideal strain for medical patients, as CBD is continuously being shown to play a potential role as a medicine when it comes to a wide range of illnesses. CBD may play a role in Dravet’s syndrome, MS, Crohn’s disease, inflammation, anxiety and depression, Epilepsy and fibromyalgia.
Yes. Products are inconsistently regulated and research shows that labels are often inaccurate. For example, some CBD products turned out to contain THC, while others didn’t contain any CBD at all. Additionally, medications tested in clinical trials contain exponentially more CBD than commercial products, and research hasn’t yet determined if such low doses are effective.
Commercial CBD has exploded in popularity over the past few years, and it has since been billed as a treatment for almost every ailment imaginable. While some claims are a hoax, such as its ability to cure Alzheimer’s, others are gaining evidence of effectiveness, including the benefits of CBD for anxiety, addiction, and epilepsy.
CBD can relieve symptoms of anxiety, research suggests, and it may therefore help treat conditions such as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. But scientists still don’t understand how exactly CBD affects the brain to deliver those benefits.
Should I be skeptical of commercial CBD products?
Drug tests check for the component THC in marijuana, so pure CBD should not appear on a drug test. However, about 20 percent of commercial CBD products have been found to include THC. If this is a concern, taking CBD may not be worth the risk, or you may consider discussing it with your employer beforehand.
CBD holds promise for treating addiction by dampening drug cravings, according to a clinical trial of individuals addicted to heroin who took CBD once a day. The benefits lasted for a week after the last dose of CBD. The compound may also help with addiction by easing anxiety and stress.
But evidence of its benefits is still highly preliminary, experts warn. More research is needed both to be sure of its effects and to establish appropriate dosing recommendations.
CBD is well tolerated in most individuals—in contrast to THC, which can induce anxiety or psychosis-like symptoms. It’s also thought to be safe by most researchers who study it. But experts caution that some commercial CBD contains THC or other contaminants, either of which may trigger negative reactions.
