5/5 - (8 votes)

There is much confusion about CBD oil, its effects, and its legal status in various countries. For this reason, we set out to bring this topic to light and clarify all these aspects, starting by answering the question “What is CBD cannabis oil?” and continuing with its beneficial effects, its legal status, and how it can be used for optimal results.

What is CBD Cannabis oil?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the compounds known as cannabinoids, found naturally in the cannabis plant, and has drawn the attention of researchers about its beneficial effects on the body.

CBD cannabis oils contain various concentrations of cannabidiol, depending on the purpose of use.

What is the difference between CBD and marijuana?

Until recent years, the most famous cannabis compound was delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, which is the most active substance in marijuana.

Marijuana contains both THC and CBD, but these two compounds have different effects.

Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. Specifically, cannabidiol does not alter the consciousness and perception of the person who consumes it, but it has been found to have significant positive effects on the body, being a potential remedy for a wide range of conditions.

In general, CBD cannabis oil is extracted from the least processed form of the cannabis plant, known as hemp.

Hemp and marijuana come from the same species, namely Cannabis sativa, the difference being in the concentrations of THC and CBD.

Over the years, marijuana growers have selectively crossed the cannabis plant to obtain a high concentration of THC. On the other hand, hemp growers, more interested in its fibers with applications in the textile industry, had no interest in obtaining a high concentration of THC through genetic modification. Naturally, hemp is rich in CBD, which is why it is used to obtain CBD cannabis oil.

How does CBD oil affect the body?

All cannabinoids, including CBD, attach to certain receptors in the human body to produce their effects. The human body naturally produces certain cannabinoids, and it also has two receptors for them: CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but most of them are found in the brain. They influence various functions of the body, such as movement and coordination, pain, emotions and mood, concentration, appetite and memory. THC attaches to these receptors.

CB2 receptors are found more in the immune system, having a direct influence on pain and inflammation.

Until quite recently, CBD is thought to attach to CB2 receptors, but it seems that CBD does not act on either of the two types of receptors, but rather influences the body to use more cannabinoids already naturally present in the body.

What are the benefits of CBD Cannabis oil?

Because of the way it acts on the body, CBD cannabis oil has numerous beneficial properties, with a wide range of applications for many types of conditions:

autoimmune diseases (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis);
Neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ischemia);
multiple sclerosis;
psychological and psycho-emotional disorders (schizophrenia, depression, anxiety);
chronic pain;
irritable colon.

What is the legal status of CBD Cannabis oil?

In some states of the world, cannabis is legal for either medicinal or recreational use. In most cases, the law criminalizes the psychoactive substance present in cannabis (THC) and not the plant itself.

CBD cannabis oil is a product made from hemp that does not contain THC. As a result, it is legal in most countries, including Romania.

What are the side effects of CBD Cannabis oil?

Several clinical studies related to the side effects of CBD oil on the body of adults have concluded that it is well tolerated, regardless of the doses.

No significant side effects were found on the central nervous system and vital signs, even in higher doses. The possible side effects on the body of children are not known, as studies have not yet been carried out.

How can CBD oil be consumed and in what forms is available on the market?

There is a wide variety of products from CBD cannabis oil, from pure CBD oil to teas, candies, chocolate, ointments, up to electronic cigarette liquids and vaporizer wax.
