What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. CBD doesn’t make people feel high like THC does. Because of this health professionals and medical patients are using CBD-rich products to treat a wide range of conditions—chronic pain, inflammation, depression, epileptic seizures, parkinson disease, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD,
anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, sleep disorders, and more. Academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of CBD on these and other ailments. Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that CBD has strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, antitumoral,
and neuroprotective qualities. Cannabidiol can change gene expression and remove beta amyloid plaque, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s, from brain cells.
Which is better CBD or THC?
Cannabidiol and THC (The High Causer) work best together. CBD and THC interact synergistically to enhance each other’s curative and painkilling qualities while lessening THC’s psychoactivity. When both compounds are present in sufficient amounts in the same cannabis strain, CBD will lower the ceiling on the THC high while prolonging its duration. (“Relaxing but not intoxicating” is how one patient described
CBD-rich cannabis). CBD broadens the range of conditions treatable such as liver, cardiovascular and metabolic disorders, which may be less responsive to THCdominant remedies. CBD and THC both stimulate neurogenesis, the creation of new brain cells, in adult mammals.
If CBD is so good, won’t pure CBD be even better?
Single-molecule CBD will inevitably become a federally approved Big Pharma medicine. Products infused with a crystalline CBD isolate, derived and extensively refined from industrial hemp, are already being marketed and sold. But single-molecule CBD is less effective therapeutically than whole plant CBD-rich oil extract. Scientific studies have established that synthetic, single-molecule CBD has a very narrow
therapeutic window and requires precise, high doses for efficacy, whereas lower dose, whole-plant, CBD-rich treatment regimens are already showing efficacy for many conditions among patients. Whether synthesized in a Big Pharma lab or derived from industrial hemp, single-molecule CBD lacks critical secondary cannabinoids and other medicinal compounds. These compounds interact with CBD and THC to enhance their therapeutic benefits. Scientists call this the “entourage effect.” Numerous cannabis compounds have medicinal attributes, but the therapeutic impact of whole plant cannabis is greater than its parts.
Will big pharmaceutical companies control the CBD market when cannabis is fully legalized for adult use?
Only if we let them. Cannabis is a medicinal herb and it should be regulated as an herb, not as a pharmaceutical or a street drug.
Are specific CBD:THC ratios better for different conditions?
Some patterns are beginning to emerge. For chronic pain, anxiety, depression, spasms, psychosis, and seizure disorders, many people report they do well starting with a small dose of a CBD-rich remedy and little THC. For cancer, autism, and many other diseases, some say they benefit more from a balanced ratio of CBD and THC. Almost any cannabis strain or product theoretically could benefit a wide range of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. CBD, THC and other cannabis components activate the CB2 cannabinoid receptor which regulates immune function. See our article on the endocannabinoid system here.
