alimentatubienestar.esThe cannabidiol, whose acronym is CBD, is a psychotropic compound used for its therapeutic potential. In addition, cannabidiol is considered to be one of the phyto-cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant. Although it was originally isolated in 1940, it was not until the 1960s that its stereochemical structure was determined by Adams et al and Mechoulam et al.
Benefits of CBDEAmongthe most prominent benefits of CBD are its antioxidant, antipsychotic, anxiolytic and antitumor effects. In addition, CBD may have potential clinical effects on various anxiety disorders, neuropathic pain, various movement disorders, epilepsy, and also anti-inflammatory effects.
On a medical level it implies significant benefits, supported by relevant scientific institutions. The National Institutes of Health (PubMed), for example, has dedicated itself to its study in different types of circumstances, which generates a world of possibilities for the health of patients who have not received palliative therapies until now. In addition, cannabidiol has been shown not to have a psychoactive effect, but rather to be inactive, but the interest in researching CBD is due to its beneficial health properties. It has been used for oxidative stress, inflammations and, above all, as a neuroprotective agent for diseases such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's. CBD
sideeffects CBD oil can have adverse effects, which can be mild or moderate, within the therapeutic dose.
The most common symptoms are fatigue, drowsiness, headaches, dry mouth, dizziness and decreased appetite. Although the cannabis plant has some compounds that have psychoactive effects, such as altered perception and mood swings, this is because its compounds, delta-9-THC, CBD and delta-8-THC, can have different concentrations, which generates different types of reactions in the short and long term. Those who test the plant are actually looking for the alterations it causes itself, so its adverse effects are not taken into account. On the other hand, when isolating its CBD compound, only the doses are used to avoid any kind of collateral damage that may arise when using the substance. Scientifically validated information is essential to verify which are the real adverse effects that the cannabis plant presents, in order to eradicate myths that have become installed in the social imaginary.
In many cases, it is believed that cannabis is not dangerous or addictive, which is absolutely false. Only those who belong to the scientific community and are specialists in the field will be able to determine, reliably, what the side effects of cannabis use are. Furthermore, it is not possible to compare, or even equate, the effects of cannabis with CBD, which is only an isolated component and research is underway on its health benefits for patients requiring palliative therapy.
