What is cannabidiol (CBD)?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is an active ingredient in drug cannabis (also known as marijuana). CBD is the second-most prevalent compound of marijuana, after delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Cannabis contains more than 400 different active substances, and THC and CBD are just two of its 60 different cannabinoid molecules.

Cannabidiol can be extracted from the cannabis plant or cannabis plant. The cannabidiol extracted from the cannabis plant contains THC, while the cannabidiol extracted from the cannabis contains only traces of psychoactive compounds.

Types of cannabidiol

Cannabidiol comes in many different forms and can be found in many products. The three main types of cannabidiol available are:

  • Full spectrum: This means that the product contains other compounds found in the cannabis plant, including varying amounts of THC.
  • Broad spectrum: This type contains other compounds found in cannabis, but does not contain THC.
  • Isolate: This type contains only cannabidiol and no other cannabis compounds.

Products that may contain cannabidiol include oils, sprays, capsules, lotions, candies and beverages. It can be taken orally, externally, eaten or inhaled.

Some studies have shown that taking full-spectrum cannabidiol products may be beneficial due to environmental effects. Essentially, the combined use of CBD and THC can maximize the therapeutic effect.

Uses of cannabidiol

Cannabidiol may have multiple uses. Some evidence suggests that it may have therapeutic applications in the treatment of diseases, including:

  • Acne
  • Anxiety
  • Cancer treatment-related side effects, such as nausea and vomiting
  • Depression
  • Epilepsy
  • Hypertension
  • Pain
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Sleep problems

It is worth noting that although cannabidiol has shown good prospects in the treatment of certain symptoms and diseases, further research is needed. Additional studies may explore changes in dosage and administration, as well as comparisons of cannabidiol treatment with other drugs and treatment options.

Tips when taking cannabidiol

Before you decide to try cannabidiol, it is important to consider what you want to achieve. If your goal is to relieve symptoms such as depression or anxiety, ingested or inhaled products are more likely to produce therapeutic effects than topical applications. Inhaled cannabidiol starts to work fairly quickly, while consumption or other ingested products may take longer.

If you are interested in topical application, such as to relieve skin problems or muscle inflammation, it is best to use topical products such as creams, ointments, lotions or ointments.
