10 benefits and therapeutic properties of CBD
What is the CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a drug that dates back thousands of years. Scientists and doctors around the world are currently testing and confirming the therapeutic properties of CBD. A safe and non-addictive substance; marijuana (cannabis), with its complex chemical structure, contains more than 100 active cannabinoids in addition to CBD. It also contains terpenes that have anti-inflammatory properties and are considered to increase the effectiveness of cannabinoids. Although they are not given the same importance as CBD when it comes to medical benefits.

Types and uses of CBD?

The fame and use of CBD has increased in recent years and users use it to treat all kinds of conditions and disorders. It can be consumed in a variety of ways, ranging from simple oral consumption to topical use and even vaporization. There are two main forms of CBD on the market, namely full spectrum CBD isolated from CBD, full spectrum CBD is more popular, and with good reason, but the isolate offers various benefits that could attract different CBD users.

The two most common forms of CBD extract found in stores are full-spectrum CBD (complete plant extract) and pure CBD isolate. Most users prefer the first one.

It has been confirmed that full spectrum extract is preferable in relation to CBD isolate for most CBD users, but it continues to be used frequently and some people believe it is more effective than the whole plant extract. This belief is based on the idea that CBD is the only medically desirable cannabinoid in the hemp plant, apart from THC.  However, CBD isolate has something to offer CBD users compared to full spectrum extracts. The fact that full-spectrum extracts invariably contain low concentrations of THC means that some users prefer to go safe and limit themselves to CBD, for fear of getting a positive test result or experiencing some mental disturbance, although both have been found to be quite unlikely.
Some common mistakes with CBD?

CBD oil and hemp oil are often confused.  The first has a mainly therapeutic use, while the second is used as a nutritional supplement.

CBD oil is produced from the buds obtained from the marijuana plant, through extractions with pure ethanol, CO2 and other solvents. Both, containing high levels of THC and CBD (in greater or lesser proportion depending on the variety and technique used).

The cannabinoid components of hemp oil are very low and therefore their use does not have the same purpose as that of CBD. Fundamentally, this oil, which is produced from the extraction of seeds from the industrial hemp plant, is very useful as a food supplement for its high content of essential fatty acids (omega 3 and omega 6).
Is the use of CBD supported by the scientific community?

CBD is recognized by the scientific community for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory power, although it should also be noted its anticonvulsant properties (effective for epilepsy patients), one of its great potentials is its neuroprotective and regenerative capacity, that helps curb diseases like multiple sclerosis.

CBD oil may also be recommended for patients with psoriasis.   The universities of Nottingham and Reading in the UK conducted a study in 2007 which showed how cannabinoid compounds work as inhibitors of keratinocyte proliferation (cells predominant in the epidermis).

Adverse effects of CBD

Among the adverse effects, usually mild to moderate, when CBD is used in therapeutic doses, feelings of tiredness, drowsiness, dry mouth, headaches, dizziness and decreased appetite may occur. In general they improve with the reduction of the dose of CBD and disappear when the administration is stopped. An open evaluation of CBD in dystonic movement disorders described adverse CBD events as mild and included hypotension, dry mouth, psychomotor deceleration, dizziness and sedation. CBD does not produce high that we know, take much or little. However, studies suggest that interactions between CBD and other chemical components (including THC) can potentially modify, increase or decrease the effects of CBD, including being a psychoactive such as THC.
