Recently, vague reports and reports on the cannabis component have been published in the British media about why the so-called CBD component has been reclassified as a medicine. Now we reveal the myths and facts about CBD.

Myth - There is no scientific evidence that CBD works

Although many studies were preclinical, studies have also been conducted on humans treated with CBD only. The studies showed CBD reduces the symptoms of schizophrenia and is very effective in reducing anxiety. The extensive research was in the treatment of pediatric epilepsy. British company GW Pharmaceuticals invented the drug "Epidiolex", which has been successfully tested on children with the rare form of epilepsy at Great Ormond Streed Hospital in London.

Myth - "good" CBD and "bad" THC

Only by the fact that CBD has no intoxicating effect, it was marked as "good" cannabinoid and THC as "bad" vice versa. But in countries where medical cannabis is legal, THC is often suitable for patients with cancer chemotherapy to improve relief of symptoms of nausea and loss of appetite. Preclinical studies also show that THC kills certain types of cancer cells. But interesting also is that when combining both cannabinoids, CBD actually reduces the psychoactive effects of THC.

Myth - if CBD is so good, why not make a synthetic version?

That's a good question. The fact of the matter is that in the case of hemp, scientists came to the conclusion that there is some sort of synergy between all the active ones. That is, it is better to use the whole hemp crop than its single component. So-called entourage effect (characteristics of a single plant depends on the ratio of CBD, THC and other cannabinoids in the tissues). But pharmaceutical companies do not care so much about the use of whole plants, so they prefer to use only a component or synthetic version that can be patented.

Fact - CBD is one of cannabinoids

First let us explain scientifically. CBD or cannabidiol is one of at least 113 components in the hemp plant called cannabinoids. The most famous component is THC, which has an intoxicating effect. Second in prevalence - CBD. What exactly makes CBD so interesting (and legal)? This is that it has no heady effect and no psychoactive but anti-inflammatory effect, helping with seizures of epilepsy, anxiety and chronic pain.

Fact - CBD interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system

You probably do not know, but everyone from sea squirts to humans has endocannabinoid system. This is an extensive network of receptors and endocannabinoids that regulate vital functions such as sleep, appetite, mood, inflammatory processes and reproduction. It happens that the endocannabinoid system can deplete, which, according to scientists, is a cause of certain diseases. The studies show that CBD helps to restore balance by increasing our same endocannabinoids and the body.

Fact (actually) - CBD is classified as a drug

It is possible to buy CBD as an additive. In October of last year, the Agency for the Regulation of Medical Health decided to recognize the therapeutic benefits of CBD and to reclassify it as a medicine. That is, rigorous double-blind studies are performed.

Fact - CBD comes from hemp

Probably it is possible that you have no idea about the difference between marijuana and hemp. Are they one and the same plant, but hemp does not contain more than 0,2% THC and more CBD. But the miracle of hemp does not end yet. After landing, hemp can pick up toxins from the soil and can also be used to clean up contaminated sites from industrial waste. So make sure you choose organic CBD that contains no heavy metals and pesticides.

Now you are not the beginner. But if you have decided to use CBD for the first time, do not forget to consult with your doctor before beginning the treatment.
