Bulgaria: What is Behind the Hype About CBD Oil?

 

CBD oil has been one of the significant trends in recent years. It has little to do with the popular intoxicant cannabis. With the new laws and regulations, you can easily access to the best legal marijuana and buy CBD bud online.

CDB oil is made from cannabidiol.

Cannabis suffered from a bad reputation for many years.

The ancient cultivated-plant was inextricably linked to intoxicating substances such as marijuana and hashish and the associated subculture.

But the situation has now eased. Cannabis products are legalized in more and more countries or at least released for medical use. Besides, cannabidiol in the form of CDB oil has conquered the legal market.

It is well-known to have anti-inflammatory and calming effects. However, it does not have an intoxicating effect.

From the Gutenberg Bible to the devil's weed

The hemp plant (cannabis) is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world. Humans use all components in some form. It serves as a reinforcement for house building and the production of clothing, ropes and sailing. Even in papermaking, cannabis dominated for centuries before it was replaced by wood fibre. The most famous works printed on hemp paper included the original Gutenberg Bibles and the USA's Declaration of Independence.

The decline of the cultural product hemp began in the 20th century. In the manufacture of clothing, it was replaced by cotton and synthetic fibres. To this end, US politician Harry J. Anslinger led a crusade against cannabis as a drug in the 1930s, which completely ignored the medicinal benefits of the plant. For a long time, hashish and marijuana remained illegal niche products.

A small but significant difference

In the meantime, hemp is experiencing a diverse comeback. It is rediscovered as a sustainable raw material for the manufacture of clothing and building materials.

Cannabis is legalized in more and more countries, at least for medical use. What is interesting for end-users is the small but significant difference between two different ingredients from the cannabinoids group.

About CBD oil

The psychoactive substance tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is responsible for the intoxication when consuming marijuana and hashish. It is mainly found in the resin of the hemp plant. For medical purposes, Delta9-THC is approved in Switzerland with a patient-specific exemption.

Besides, the plants contain cannabidiol (CDB), a second substance that has been heavily marketed for several years.

CDB oil was only permitted as a food supplement.

In contrast to THC, CDB oil, not to be confused with the hemp oil made from the seeds, is not a psychoactive substance, which means that it does not trigger a high. As long as the end product contains a maximum of 0.6 per cent THC, it can be legally sold in Europe.

Breeders have increasingly switched to growing hemp plants with a high content of CBD and an unusually low content of THC. It enables them to offer CBD oil as a dietary supplement legally.

However, it is not allowed to advertise with the supposed healing effects. So far, for example, there are no scientific studies that could prove that CBD oil can have a positive impact on cancer treatment.

Besides, with epilepsy and multiple sclerosis, CBD products and drugs showed that there was a reduction in the number of seizures or complaints - but only for products with a prescription-high dosage.

CBD oil as a legal anxiety remover

One of the many positive effects of CBD is a slight anxiolytic effect without getting high as with THC from consumption. Studies suggest that CBD docks to the receptors that trigger the release of the happiness hormone serotonin.

With stress, worries and fears, a few drops of CBD oil can have a relaxing effect. Since the substance has no side effects and is not addictive, it can at least be an excellent alternative to other comforters such as alcohol or even Valium.

Besides, some report positive antispasmodic and analgesic effects, for example, for stomach upset, headache and menstrual cramps. Last but not least, thanks to its antioxidant effect, CDB oil is found more and more frequently in cosmetic products such as hand and face creams.

No-frills lifestyle product

Ultimately, as with so many other current hypes, CDB oil is primarily a lifestyle product. A positive effect may be noticeable in some people.

Still, experts say that it can also be based on a placebo effect because a particular impact is expected; it merely arises for this reason.

However, since it doesn't hurt, it can be worth trying. It should only be noted that it is neither a miracle cure for serious diseases. Still, CBD oil and other CD products are well-known to ease pain, to treat mild conditions and help to go through more burdensome treatments and CBD oil is also not triggering a high.
