CBD and its structure.
The medical use of the hemp plant was already practiced from a lot of years ago. Meanwhile, 489 essential components could be determined in the hemp plant. In addition to terpenes, flavonoids and other plant substances, phytocannabinoids are of particularly high interest. So far, 70 phytocannabinoids have been detected in the hemp plant.
The better known are tetrahydrocannabinoles (THCs), cannabidioles (CBD), cannabinoles (CBN) and cannabigeroles (CBG). The psychoactive or intoxicating component of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabiol, which binds to the development of activity in the CB1 or CB2 receptor (endocannabinoid system).
The non-psychoactive ingredient cannabidiol binds to different CDB receptor systems. Therefore, it is considered as an effective, well tolerated and, above all, the safe component of the hemp plant and is particularly interesting for self-medication, since it can develop anti-inflammatory, antiepileptic and anti-schizophrenic properties, without attenuating side effects.
The use of cannabidiol is enjoyed in the complementary area due to reports of positive experiences of increasing popularity.
Chemical structure of the CBD
The molecular structure of CBD is composed of 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms.
How is the CBD extracted?
Due to the low content of THC, CBD- rich hemp can be grown legally, cannabidiol is produced in higher concentrations in the upper third of the plant and in the flowers. After harvesting, parts of the plant are extracted or placed in extracts for oil extraction. Particularly of high quality are the CBD extracts of Co2 extraction. Due to the extraction process without heat, the complete phytochemical spectrum as well as all the phytocannabinoids, except THC, remain.
The human body carries cannabinoids by nature, this occurs in the endocannabinoid system. Many physiological processes are regulated here, including mood, sensitivity to pain, appetite and cognitive functions. CBD reacts with the endocannabinoid system and receptors.
Selection of the most important mechanisms of action, hitherto investigated by the CBD.
Like capsaicin, CBD stimulates the vanilloid type 1 receptor. This stimulation could contribute to an analgesic effect.
CBD binds to the nucleoside transporter 1 and improves the signaling pathway of adenosine, thus harmonizing the increased release of neurotransmitters (norepinephrine, epinephrine). In animal experiments, the inflammatory parameter TNF-alpha was further reduced by the CBD.
CBD binds to the GPR55 receptor, complementing the anti-inflammatory effect.
Cannabinoids, including CBD, kidnappers are powerful and have cell protective properties.
Benefits of using CBD
The CDB is used to help with too many conditions such as:
Psychosis or mental disorders
Inflammatory bowel disease
Application and use.
For complementary use in stress, exhaustion, sleep disorders, epilepsy, anxiety disorders, schizophrenic psychosis, inflammation, and inflammatory pain, nausea, and vomiting, migraine, neuropathy, dependence on THC, nicotine, alcohol, hypnotics, and opiates, for appetite suppression, protection of antioxidant cells.
The single dose of CBD varies between 150 and 800 mg per day. As a complementary support or to maintain the vitality and improvement of well-being, as well as to reduce the need for medicines, a lower use of cannabidiol is also effective. The recommended intake is very individual. In the beginning, it is best to drip 5-10 drops 1-2 times a day under the tongue. Adjust as necessary. The recommendations are based on the experience of pharmacists, doctors, and users, including international literature.
Side effects and interactions.
The most common update of cannabis oil with THC is an increase in heart rate, dry mouth, dizziness, and red eyes. These side effects can occur at very low concentrations of THC. Some groups of people have a higher risk of side effects due to cannabis oil:
Young people (under 20 years old)
Cannabis oil with CBD only seems to have very few side effects or interactions at this time. However, you should always be careful when using different media.
CBD and THC interact with some medications. Sometimes, cannabis oil reduces the effect of medications and, sometimes, reinforces some side effects. For example, cannabis oil also reinforces the effect of buffering agents such as alcohol, benzodiazepines (sleeping pills and sedatives) and opiates (analgesics).
It is important to determine if the cannabis oil contains THC, CBD or both. CBD and THC are substances that are produced in hashish or weeds. THC provides the effect of hashish and weeds, being stoned. The CBD itself has no effects, but it does influence the effect of THC. Therefore, it will be high in cannabis oil with THC, not cannabis oil with CBD alone. THC has a different effect on the body and, therefore, other side effects than oil with CBD alone.
Data on the use of CBD
Always consult your doctor before beginning to take supplements or make changes in the use of medications or supplements.
It is important to always start with a very small dose before accumulating it to achieve the desired result. Under scientific conditions, amounts of 10 mg to 600 mg were tested for problems of sleep, anxiety, depression, stress, and other disorders.
CBD oil is generally well tolerated in adults. Possible side effects include dry mouth, lightheadedness, drowsiness, slow movements and thoughts, and decreased blood pressure.
People who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use CBD oil.
People suffering from Parkinson’s disease may experience stronger muscle contractions and other movements in the muscles. First, contact a specialist before using CBD oil!
What about the Drug tests?
You should know that CBD can appear on drug tests even after several days or weeks after using them.
Not all drug tests will detect the CBD, but there is evidence sensitive to it. Most standard drug tests will look for chemicals related to THC, so the use of THC or marijuana will be shown on a screening test.
