What is CBD?

This article is to help clear up the question of what CBD (cannabiol) really is. As we all know CBD is an extract from the marijuana plant along with THC (tetrahydrocannabiol). CBD and THC are the two main chemicals that are of the most useful to most everyone. There are also many other uses for the cannabis plant such as making cloth, rope, and a number of other useful items, which I’ll cover later in another article.

Both CBD and THC once they are extracted from the marijuana plant are of an oilly substance. And someone figured out that CBD had madisanal properties and threw out time studies shows that CBD could also be used in aiding certain types of mental illness, which I will cover later in this artical.

I’m mainly going to concentrate on the CBD because, as we all know, THC is the chemical that give you the high you feel when a person smokes a joint and CBD does not give you that high. In fact CBD doesn’t get you high at all.

You see, the reason that CBD is such a mystery is because  with marijuana Just starting to become legal and that it has been illegal for such a long time, I believe that it became illegal world wide in 1937,  and if my math is correct that comes to about 82 years. So taking that into consideration, there isn’t that much information on CBD because during that time there wasn’t a lot of studies done about it.

However, I’m going to try and take out some of the mystery about CBD and all the great things all of you out there use this seemingly miracle extract for. The many things that CBD is used for is truly miraculous.

CBD, once it has been extracted from the plant in raw form is an oil based material that later infused into other CBD products,  such as, of course,  an oil,  a cream that can be used externally for a muscle rub,  there are also gummy CBD products as well capsules for internal use.

Pain Relief

There are claims threw studies and personal experience from one person to the next that CBD is used for pain relief of all kinds.

Starting with arthritis, that is some pretty amazing stuff if CBD can take away arthritis pain. But the truth of it is patients who have arthritis are looking for an alternative to conventional treatment because with CBD they don’t get the side effects that they would have with their arthritis medication.

Head aches, the thing about head aches is it has to be taken orally, and since the FDA hasn’t recognized CBD as a pharmaceutical drug yet it’s hard to tell how much to take for things such as a head ache or for any other reason you would have to take it orally. So, as of now until more studies are done, especially on the use of human’s, you will have to experiment with what you think is safe for you. I’ve smoked a lot of weed at one given time in my life and I think I came out of it OK. Nonetheless, use caution when taking CBD or other types of medication.

The FDA however is starting to take a good hard look at all the benefits that CBD contributes to the health benefits world wide.

Sore muscles, CBD also comes in a cream form which also makes it great for a muscle rub,  or if your a massage therapist I would think it would be great for giving massages  to help relax the muscle groups as your therapist works his/her magic.

Anxiety & Stress

Just recently studies have shown that CBD can aid in the treatment of anxiety and stress. But according to my research, it’s difficult to determine the dosage required to treat anxiety and or stress due to the fact that CBD is a relatively new product and not a whole lot of tests have been conducted on human subjects. So determining the dosage required for humans is still in the experimental stages. The suggestion, according to my research, is to try 300mg, 600mg,  or 900mg to determine  which may be right for the patient. Because, taking to little of a dose may not show results and taking to much may cause an increase of anxiety, but if a person with anxiety can find a happy medium until CBD can be regulated according to the proper dosage. Most likely the mid range of 600mg would be a reasonable dose.  But that also would depend on height and weight.

However, there have been numerous tests done on mice which showed promising results. A test had been done on some mice which half of the mice had been given CBD and the other half were given a placebo, why the scientist would give a mouse a placebo is beyond me but they did. Then a snake was put in with the mice and the mice that had been given the CBD were less anxious than the mice that had been given the placebo.

Epilepsy

CBD has also been tested on patients with epilepsy and has shown promising results in patients with epilepsy.

Can CBD be sent by mail? 

That seems to be the big question going around these days. Technically, the answer is no.  Under Federal Law, cannabis is still an illegal substance under the Controller Substance Act. So what that means is, transporting any form of cannabis across state lines is considered a FELONY Trafficking offence and can result in prison time up to 5 years for the first offence.

Warning: there have been ads offering to ship CBD, if you live in a state where cannabis is still illegal then you need to take a closer look at the product you are buying. Marijuana plants which CBD is extracted from is illegal to transport across state lines. However, CBD can also be extracted from the hemp plant as well and is all rich with CBD. The process for extracting CBD is a somewhat different process. There are certain chemicals that are used for this process. So beware that if your getting CBD extracted from hemp that most likely there will be unhealthy chemicals in it.

Keep in mind that there are no Federal guidelines or standards concerning quality control.

Conclusion 

I hope that this article cleared up any questions you may have had concerning CBD. If you have any comments or questions please leave them below and I will do everything I can to make sure you have the correct answer.

What Chemicals are in Marijuana & Byproducts

This according to The Mayo Clinic in its Aug. 25, 2006 article “Marijuana as Medicine: Concider the Pros & Cons”.

‘Marijuana contains at least 60 chemicals called cannabinoids. Researchers are evaluating how effective some of these cannabinoid might be in controlling symptoms of certain conditions, for example:

  • THC. An abbreviation for Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol-cannabinol. THC is the main component responsible for marijuana’s mind- altering effects. It also may help treat signs and symptoms such as nausea and vomiting that are associated with a number of medical conditions.
  • Cannabinol and cannabidiol. These compounds have some of the properties of THC, but cause less psychoactive effects — the high. …
  • Also, marijuana smoke contains 50 percent to 70 percent more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than does tobacco smoke and has the potential to cause cancer of the lungs and respiratory tract. Marijuana smoke is commonly inhaled deeper and held longer than is tobacco smoke, increasing the lungs’ exposure to carcinogens.”

Ok, I have to say that as many years as I have been smoking weed and all the people I know that also smoke weed, I have never known or heard of anyone getting cancer from smoking marijuana unlike tabacco. You see, marijuana is sold in its natural form- with no added chemicals-pro, on the other hand, tabacco is full of all kinds of man made chemicals that people wouldn’t normally take and in my personal opinion causes cancer over all-con. I would say at best from personal experience that smoking marijuana is the cause of shortness of breath.

I’m no doctor and I can tell you this, I can’t take a hit off of a joint or a bong or whatever without coughing my ass off. Been doing it for as long as I’ve been smoking weed, and I see other people who don’t caugh at all. But cancer, very slim chance compared to tobacco. Because if that we’re the case, then why hasn’t the Surgeon General put warning lable on the packaging of marijuana? I have never seen a warning lable on my packageing when i go to the dispensery to buy weed. However I do see it on a pack of cigarettes and the cigars I smoke (Warning: This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical.) That is what is written on a pack of cigars that I  smoke.

The Institute of medicine published in its Mar. 1999 report titled “Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Sience Base”.

“The most recent review of the constituents of marijuana lists 66 cannabinoids. But that does not mean there are 66 different cannabinoid effects or interactions. Most of the cannabinoids are closely related and they fall into only 10 groups of closely related cannabinoids, many of which differ by only a single chemical moiety and might be midpoints along biochemical pathways — that is, degradation products, precursors, or byproducts.

Now, here we have 66 marijuana cannabinoid. What I’m understanding here is that cannabis is just like any other plant that is a positive to our health one way or another. Because marijuana was illegal at one time and still is in some States and other countries, its gotten a bad rap. Fact of the matter marijuana has just as many attributes and has a positive contribution to our health in many ways.

Some people use cannabis for its THC properties because they enjoy the high they get from it or that it helps in some capacity of health benifits. As with CBD the health benefits are different such as aiding to improve anxiety and stress among other health benefits without the affects that THC provides.

Cannabinoid Identified in Marijuana

I’m going to break it down as we move down this list of different cannabis chemicals. The first chemical identified on this list is:

  • 9_THC (Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabis) there are 9 known variants in this group. The next chemical in this list is vary closely related to the first:
  • 8_THC (Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabis) there are 2 known variants in this group.

In regaurds to these first 2 chemicals are what I believe made marijuana famous due to the fact that THC is the chemical that gives you that intoxicating feeling you get when smoking or eating cannabis products.

  • CBC (Cannabichromene) there are 5 known variants in this group. This chemical was discovered over 50 years ago. CBC is considered one of the “big six” cannabinoid prominent in medical research. It doesn’t get as much attention, but CBC’s benifits are extremely promising. CBC has the same origins as both THC and CBD do in that they all stem from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA).
  • CBL (Cannabicyclol) there are 3 known variants.Cannabicyclol, also called CBL, is one of the least known and studied cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Although it is commonly found in many varieties, in particular those with a higher content of CBC (Cannabichromene), the amount of CBL produced in trichomes is always very low, so it doesn’t usually receive the attention given to other, more plentiful compounds of the plant with a much more noticeable presence, such as THC, CBD or CBN.

  • CBD (Cannabinoil)  there are 7 known varents in this group. CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound – meaning it won’t alter a person’s mental state – that can come from two different cannabis plants: The hemp plant (with less than 0.3 percent THC present) or marijuana plant (where there’s much more psychoactive THC). CBD products tend to be derived from hemp
  •  CBE (Cannabielsoin) there are 5 varients in this group. That’s just to name a few of the chemicals in the cannabis plant. There are more but there isn’t much to go by as far as research is concerned.

It’s kind of hard to believe that as long as the marijuana plant has been in our lives that there very little known about this very popular plant.

Final Thought

I hope that this blog is helpful to better understand this powerful little plant that we are just starting to try and understand. More so now that more than half of the States have made marijuana legal and we’re beginning to try and get better understanding about. I’m going to do my best to keep everyone up to date on our little plant in every way.

Leave a comment with up date that you know about and I’ll pass on that news. Stay mellow
