CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical that is extracted from hemp, a plant widely grown around the world because it is used in the textile, automotive, cosmetics and even construction industries for its insulating properties.
In addition to CBD, the hemp plant contains several different molecules, most of which include THC and, in smaller quantities, CBG, CBN and CBC: they are all called cannabinoids, but they differ greatly from each other in chemical structure and effects. Only THC, in fact, has psychoactive effects that are completely absent in CBD and does not create any dependence and to which beneficial and even therapeutic properties are recognized, as has been ascertained worldwide by numerous clinical studies reported in the articles published in scientific journals.
The most well-known property of CBD is relaxing: unlike psychoactive substances, also contained in psychopharmaceuticals, however, it does not create any addiction and does not cause any side effects. CBD can therefore be taken quietly at any time of the day, even during work to reduce the stress it normally causes.
Many studies, especially the most recent ones, have also recognized CBD as important therapeutic properties: CBD is, in fact, a viable alternative for those seeking relief from inflammation, persistent pain, anxiety, insomnia, psychosis, seizures, muscle spasms. CBD can also be used as a daily dietary supplement to promote homeostasis.
The use of legal CBD is completely safe and free of any side effects: first of all, because legal CBD is obtained from hemp that contains less than 0.2% of THC, therefore free of any negative effect even in case of accidental excessive consumption; Moreover, why CBD tends to block the effects of THC on the nervous system essentially nullifying psychoactive effects.
The human nervous system contains a large number of receptors that receive and transmit signals to our body. Just like a repeater that receives a specific electromagnetic wave as a signal, the receptors use specific molecules to transmit their messages.
One of these receptor systems is the endocannabinoid system (ECS). ECS receptors are distributed in the brain and peripheral nervous system. In the brain, these receptors are present in the areas responsible for perception, concentration, memory and movement. That is why the ECS is involved in regulating many physiological processes, including pain sensation, mood and appetite.
The two main receptors of the ECS endocannabinoid system are called CB1 and CB2. These receptors bind to molecules produced in our body called endocannabinoids. 2-arachidonoillycerol (2-AG) is an important endocannabinoid that binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBD, plant-based phytocannabinoid, while not directly binding to these receptors, nevertheless manages to replicate some of the effects of 2-AG.
For the features just described, CBD, according to the latest scientific research, would have antispasmodistic, antipsychotic, anti-convulsive and neuroprotective properties. In addition, it can also help relieve daily stress and strengthen the nervous system.
CBD and THC are two molecules both naturally present in cannabis plants: the substantial difference between these two molecules is the different production of effects.
CBD, or cannabidiol, unlike THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, is not psychoactive, that is to say, it does not produce any psychotropic effect, it does not alter normal space-time perception.
Not only does CBD have no negative effect, but many studies have recognized the same important beneficial health properties: CBD acts directly on the nervous system and, in particular, on the frontal lobe receptors where the endocannabinoid system (otherwise called ECS) is located.
Such a system is involved in many physiological processes, such as the feeling of pain, appetite and mood. For this reason, anti-psotic, anticonvulsant and neuroprotective properties are recognized in CBD. Although studies in this regard are still ongoing, it also appears that CBD helps to contain the metastatic spread of breast cancer.
- It is not psychoactive: it does not cause any alteration of space-time perception.
- It does not produce any known side effects.
- It helps to counteract the psychoactive effects of THC.
- It is legal in most countries.
- It is psychoactive: it causes alterations in the perception of time space
- It produces side effects including paranoia, anxiety psychotic states.
- It is illegal in most countries.
The cultivation of legal hemp involves the use of specific seeds, strictly selected and controlled, from which a plant naturally rich in CBD, molecule with beneficial properties, and with a very low content of THC, molecule with psychoactive effects, is obtained.
The product of these rare and valuable crops is light marijuana, made from female hemp Sativa inflorescences which have a large amount of CBD (cannabidiol) inside them.
The use of light marijuana is considered legal precisely because of its very low THC content that does not produce psychotropic effects, nor dependence, and its very high cbd content, free of psychoactive effects and rich in beneficial properties.
In fact, CBD has been recognized, in addition to naturally relaxing effects, positive outcomes also for widespread pathologies such as headaches, states of anxiety, inflammations, persistent painful symptoms.
The products marketed by Chill Remedy are traceable and rigorously controlled to ensure that the CBD and THC content in them are fully compliant with the regulatory limits.
