The therapeutic benefits of cannabis have been proven by lots of scientific studies and multiple personal success stories. Cannabis is now demonstrating effectiveness in treating everything from Alzheimer’s to arthritis to chronic pain, anxiety and cancerous tumors. The legalization of marijuana for medical purposes has spread across more than half of the country, too. Concern has been raised that regular and prolonged use of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, could lead to psychological or some cognitive troubles. Fortunately, though, cannabidiol (CBD) provides a safeguard against the adverse side effects of THC. See, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. And a university team has verified that equal proportions of CBD and THC prevented the emergence of all behavioral deficits. In the study, injections of THC were given to a group of adolescent and young adult mice. Another group of mice were given only CBD. And a final group of mice acquired equal dosage of both THC and CBD. The first group showed problems with their memory and increased anxiety. The other group demonstrated no cognitive changes at all, but the other group, those that acquired the combination of THC and CBD, also showed no signs of cognitive abnormalities. That CBD protects against bad side effects caused by THC is legitimately fantastic news. CBD is found in marijuana and in hemp, and it is legitimately abundant. It’s a safe, natural, effective medicine. It also offers successful treatment of neurological disorders. Natural strains of cannabis have close ratios of THC and CBD. Over the years, the plant has simply been bred by growers for greater potency, diminishing the amount of CBD in it. But now growers are concentrating on CBD-rich strains of cannabis.
