The cannabis plant contains 70-100 cannabinoids, the one most people heard of is THC, which is a psychoactive cannabinoid and this causes the “high” effect. After THC, CBD is the second most common cannabinoid, which is not regarded as psychoactive.
The psychoactive effect of THC is because it interacts with the CB1 receptor. CBD, however, does not have a significant interaction with the CB1 receptor, but instead uses a number of other receptor sites, such as the nervous system, skin, and digestive organs. CBD’s special ability is to reduce the psychoactive effect of THC, therefore it is a strong anti-psychotic.
In addition, with the use of CBD products, scientists have achieved good results in decreasing the symptoms of epileptic seizures, pain, inflammation, cancer, autoimmune diseases and many other diseases. CBD can especially help people with the following conditions: neuropathic pain, mood or anxiety, IBS, MS, and other neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.
THC and CBD are effective in the relief of pain, but THC helps the patient forget or endure more pain by distracting his attention. CBD reduces the amount of pain experienced in injury, which is more similar to traditional opiate painkillers.
The best way to intake CBD-rich cannabis is to provide the optimum dose for the desired duration with few undesirable side effects. CBD-rich cannabis flowers can be inhaled or vaporized, but most patients choose cannabis oil concentrates instead of inhalation. Absorption is often referred to as bioavailability.
Bioavailability means the amount of drug available to the body for use. By definition, when a drug is administered intravenously (directly into the blood), the bioavailability is 100%. So, in deciding which product to buy, it’s important to consider how you can get more CBD into your bloodstream. There are 3 basic ways to choose when to consider how to inject the active ingredient: by mouth, by inhalation or rectal.
Inhalation is a good method for treating acute symptoms (eg nausea, epileptic seizures) that require immediate attention; the effect is within one to two minutes and usually lasts for one to two hours. Make sure you only buy high quality volatile oils, because some of the cheaper oils may contain propylene glycol which can be dangerous to the lungs. When you eat the CBD-rich cannabis oil it can last for four hours or longer, but the effects start much later (30 to 90 minutes) than inhalation.
Many people who try CBD for the first time do not find the taste is particularly pleasant, so if it does not work for you to put oil or paste under your tongue, maybe try another input method. Intake of capsules or chewing gums works very well for some people. If you decide to try the flavored oil, make sure you have 100% natural flavor. However, one of the most effective injections is through the mucous membranes of the body. We recommend trying the cones. Your body is getting more CBD through your rectum and vagina mucous membranes. For more info about CBD in general, click here.
