THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), another compound of the cannabis plant, is psychoactive.
CBD or cannabidiol is extracted from the cannabis plant & usually is diluted with coconut or hemp seed oil. There are no side effects from long-term consumption… It is commonly marketed & sold as a supplement rather than a medication. At the present time, the FDA doesn’t regulate the purity of dietary supplements. It is a smart move to validate the quality of the CBD before you consume it. If the hemp plants were treated with toxic pesticides or raised in soil contaminated with heavy metals, the CBD extract is no longer pure & might not be safe. CBD can also interact with various medications, increasing the level of blood thinners. Reactions to CBD are not very common or severe. Some people report a certain calming effect, which at high doses, results in a bit of fatigue. Because CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the salivary glands & suppresses the secretion of saliva, there are people who complain of dry mouth. There have also been reports of lightheadedness! Very high doses of CBD may cause a slight drop in blood pressure, however, there has never been a case of fatal CBD overdose. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, which means that it doesn’t give a person a “high” sensation. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), another compound of the cannabis plant, is psychoactive. CBD products that do not contain THC are outside the regulations of the U.S, and DEA Controlled Substances Act. These products are perfectly legal to sell & consume in all fifty states. There are varying degrees of restriction in various states, however people are able to order CBD online without a cannabis license for medical use.
