The use of CBD for cancer has been what everyone seems to be talking about as of late. Studies have shown positive effects on other diseases as well. Cannabidiol or CBD has chemicals produced by the hemp plant called cannabinoids.
What Do Cannabinoids Do?
Every person on the earth has an endocannabinoid system, which is the system that is responsible for homeostasis and other functions in our body. CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system! When that system is working at its fullest things like getting sick can start happening.
So, What is THC?
THC is the main component in the cannabis plant that produces psychoactive properties. This is why one might get "high". Now, studies have shown that THC can work positively for things like OCD or PTSD, or even reduce nausea in patients undergoing chemo.
Now, What is CBD or CBD Oil?
CBD is one of the largest talked about properties of the cannabis plant on the planet right now. It is showing huge promises in treating a lot of disorders and diseases, the FDA even approved a CBD drug recently.
The big difference between CBD and THC is one gets you high and one doesn't. CBD doesn't contain the same properties that THC does which is responsible for getting you high, so don't expect to take CBD and get a high feeling.
