This is a question asked more often than not so I’ve decided to share a little insight.
CBD can be one of the most intimidating purchases. You hear from your own research, a friend, word of mouth, etc. Though how can you know what’s truth and more importantly what do you need?
For many heavily involved in the CBD and Hemp oil business it’s seen many times that you may need help figuring out CBD, how to use, when to use or even if to use.
In my opinion based off my personal testimonial and the results seen in my furry boys, my kids and even a very picky husband have found that though they didn’t think they were sick or struggling with any ailment don’t need it. Though the shift of that mentality is moving quickly.
If you understand your endocannabinoid system and that I bodies have become deficient of cannabids due to the lack of Hemp in our diet, you know that any deficiencies require replenishing. So on that note-Everyone should use/take some form of CBD. As studies and research is finding the seemingly endless ways our bodies are failing due to this deficiency that how could it hurt to get it back into our diets.
So below are some quick descriptions of a few things to know first.
If CBD is so good, won’t pure CBD be even better? Single-molecule CBD will most likely become a federally approved Big Pharma medicine. Products infused with a crystalline CBD isolate, derived and extensively refined from industrial hemp, are already found as being marketed by unregulated internet storefronts. But single-molecule CBD is less effective therapeutically than whole plant CBD-rich oil extract. The scientific studies have determined that synthetic, single-molecule CBD has a very small therapeutic window and requires precise, high doses for efficacy and more trial and error. However lower dose, whole-plant, CBD-rich treatment regimens are already showing efficacy for many conditions among patients in medical marijuana states. Whether synthesized in a Big Pharma lab or derived from industrial hemp, single-molecule CBD lacks critical secondary cannabinoids and other medicinal compounds found in high-resin cannabis strains. These compounds interact with CBD and THC to enhance their therapeutic benefits. Scientists refer to this as the “entourage effect.” Numerous cannabis compounds have medicinal attributes, but the therapeutic impact of whole plant cannabis is greater than the sum of its parts.
Does CBD have any adverse side effects? What about drug interactions? CBD is a very safe substance, but patients taking other medications should check with their doctor about drug interactions, which are more likely when consuming high doses of single-molecule CBD products. At sufficient dosages, CBD will temporarily deactivate cytochrome P450 enzymes, thereby altering how we metabolize a wide range of compounds, including THC. Cytochrome P450 enzymes metabolize more than 60 percent of Big Pharma meds. CBD is a more potent inhibitor of cytochrome P450 than the grapefruit compound Bergapten, so ask your doctor if grapefruit interacts with your medication. If grapefruit does, then CBD probably does, too. Patients on a CBD-rich treatment regimen should monitor changes in blood levels of prescription medications and, if need be, adjust dosage.
