WHY ARE PEOPLE USING CBD
After years of extensive research, researchers continue to search for that ideal panacea capable of handling many ailments plaguing humanity. One factor changing the game for good is the inception of the CBD (Cannabidiol). This cannabinoid is very potent and regarded as one of the hottest and fastest-growing alternative health trends in Canada. For easy consumption, the CBD (Cannabidiol) comes in CBD oil, gummies, baked goods, soaps, teas, etc.
The CBD (Cannabidiol) is just one of the very many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Thanks to extensive research, researchers opine that the CBD comes with many therapeutic uses. The cannabis plant has two main compounds delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD. Both of which come with varying effects and benefits. Before today, the THC used to be the most popular compound of the cannabis plant.
The THC is the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. This component (tetrahydrocannabinol) responsible for the high feeling you get when you smoke or consumed any cannabis-infused edible. Unlike the THC, the CBD, on the other hand, isn’t psychoactive (doesn’t give or make its users high). However, it brings significant changes in the body sandwiched with considerable health benefits.
The cannabis plant is arguably one of the most misunderstood plants that ever existed. Blessed with outstanding benefits and haling prowess, this plant was popular mainly for its recreational uses. All of which is thanks to its ability to give a high. Today, the tables have turned for the best, and people now sap from the very many benefits associated with the plant’s two primary components (THC and CBD). It is worthy to note that the laws or legal status of the CBD are very complicated, especially in the United State of America, but here in Canada it’s LEGAL!
As such, and with the inception of the Farm Bill, all Hemp and hemp-derived products are only legal if they come with THC of less than 0.3%. With that cleared, there is still some confusion over the specificities of this law. Meaning users should be up to date with the cannabis laws in the different states in the US.
