If you have not heard of CBD till today, you are living under a rock. And this blogpost will bring you to the outside world from under that rock.
What Is CBD?
Cannabidiol, which is also known as CBD, is a therapeutic cannabinoid present in hemp. It is used to treat anxiety, insomnia, pain and other diseases.
The reason why it’s fame skyrocketed in the last two years was because it could only be used after it was legalized in the US. The fact that it is of high medicinal value made it extra special.
As soon as the government gave the industries a ‘yes’ to go forwardwith using CBD, they started flooding the market with a variety of CBD products. One of them is CBD gummies. The reason why CBD gummies stand out among the sea of others is because of how both children and adults prefer them. Let us know more about these sweet yet healthy delicious bites.
What Are Its Health Benefits?
Manufacturers of CBD gummies claim that it reduces anxiety, pain, depression, inflammation, and insomnia. However, no research has been done on the effect of CBD gummies. Studies on CBD oil show the different benefits of the cannabinoid and the same results can be expected by using CBD gummies too. Since CBD is bitter in taste, these gummies contain very high amount of sugar. People who have used CBD gummies have testified the changes they experienced.
Will You Get High If You Have CBD Gummies?
No. You can have as many CBD gummies as you want and still not get high. This is so because CBD is not psychotic, unlike THC. However, CBD extracted from marijuana will contain more THC which can make you intoxicated.
What Is The Difference Between Hemp And Marijuana?
This might be a little confusing. Cannabis is of two types- Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. Marijuana can be obtained from both of these types whereas hemp, which belongs to Cannabis Sativa family, will give CBD. The main difference between the two is the percentage of THC in them. Hemp contains a meager amount of 0.3% THC. In fact, hemp will be considered “hemp”- by the government- only if the THC is that low.
What Are The Side Effects Of CBD?
CBD is a natural chemical substance that should not harm the consumer’s body. But just like other nature-derived substances, CBD too can have some side effects. Some of these are fatigue, diarrhea and lightheadedness.
