We report, translating it into Italian an article from the blog "Hemproject.eu" which summarizes the 5 reasons why you should take CBD daily.
“There is a fundamental difference between THC and CBD, and while THC is the part recreational users seek the most, CBD contains the greatest benefits. Of course, all cannabis contains CBD, but science has made it possible to create marijuana strains with high levels of CBD and very low THC levels of almost 0. This means that you can use CBD every day for its incredible benefits without being "Out of tune".
What is the difference between THC and CBD?
The key difference between THC and CBD is that THC is the chemical compound in marijuana that makes you feel "high". CBD belongs to another group of compounds found in the marijuana plant.
CBD is the main cannabinoid in marijuana and THC and CBD are the two most common chemicals that enter your body when you use marijuana. Most recreational marijuana contains more THC than CBD, but modern research has allowed the creation of strains containing practically no level of THC.
The beneficial health effects of CBD for the human body are entering more and more social consciousness, here are 5 reasons why you should take CBD daily
1. CBD relieves anxiety
Although marijuana is sometimes linked to causing anxiety, it is usually THC that is responsible for this. CBD, on the other hand, counteracts the effects of anxiety that THC causes. It is useful both for those who are prone to always be anxious and for those who suffer from anxiety only rarely.
2. CBD reduces blood sugar levels
Recent studies like the one from 2013 have found that one of the ways marijuana helps people regulate their weight is through the regulation of blood sugar levels. Studies have shown that marijuana users were less likely to develop diabetes in their lifetime.
As for the question of whether or not CBD is useful for diabetic patients, it is still controversial, and further studies need to be done. But CBD regulates blood sugar levels and reduces the likelihood of developing diabetes.
3. CBD inhibits the growth of cancer cells
Cannabinoids in marijuana excite some receptors that allow the body to produce pharmacological effects of the immune system and the central nervous system. It has therefore been identified that cannabinoids can act in this way to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. In fact, they are also used to reduce the size of tumors, and for cancer-related side effects.
4. CBD is non-psychoactive
CBD does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC, and therefore can be used for its purposes without being banned. This is ideal for people who use it for a purpose other than recreational use, and therefore do not want to have psychoactive effects.
5. CBD reduces chronic pain and inflammation
CBD reduces chronic pain by working on the endocannabinoid system that controls pain and inflammation. Most ailments probably come from some form of pain and / or inflammation, and CBD excites the exact receptors that deal with these symptoms.
This is what makes CBD effective in treating many different diseases.
People can get CBD through CBD products, for example through a CBD oil, which is an oily extract with added CBD or other products. It is also possible of course to take CBD by smoking / vaporizing cannabis directly. "
