Cannabis culture has been growing at an ever-expanding rate. People are accepting marijuana’s benefits, and it is becoming international! Thus, the government is rethinking the old rules and regulations that have long held back cannabis. Because of this, the mainstream public seems to be intrigued by new possibilities of pain management.

Users have recently been finding out about compounds such as CBD, or “cannabidiol”. Consequently, this is one of the most exciting developments within the cannabis “boom”.

Keep reading for an exclusive WeGrow guide to CBD and its amazing advantages!

What is CBD?

Scientists have discovered CBD (cannabidiol) as one of 100 canna-compounds. Users will not get ‘high’ on CBD, as it is not psychoactive, unlike THC. These two compounds are able to interact and counteract each other.

Many patients with serious conditions now highly prefer pain management through CBD because it does not get them ‘high’. Caregivers now have an alternative to offer instead of traditional pain killers.

Cancer patients whom CBD may also benefit will also see this as welcome news. Researchers at The National Cancer Institute have concluded that CBD may help to alleviate cancer symptoms. They are finding even more specific uses of CBD as funding for further studies is increases.

States have enacted their own versions of public policy following cannabis legalization. Therefore, THC/CBD levels allowed by the government sometimes vary. However, generally the THC-to-CBD ratio is 20:1 on the recreational side. Researchers and scientists have made great efforts that have allowed medicinal growers to focus more on their CBD production. Patients and caregivers, consequently, have welcomed this new development with open arms.

 What are the Benefits of CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) has the potential to treat a number of conditions. Patients have been successfully treated for PTSD, alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, depression, anxiety, epileptic episodes and other neurological disorders. Researchers have credited CBD  as an anti-inflammatory, blood sugar regulator, antibacterial, anti-carcinogen and even as neuroprotective agent.

What’s with this recent CBD ‘Fad’?

People’s recent acceptance of cannabis culture can be seen as a positive thing. However, it is not without its side-effects. Public awareness of the differences and specific benefits of compounds such as THC and CBD is needed to avoid the spread of negative stigmas that only set the movement further back.

As the public gains more information, confusion lessens. The average person is beginning to understand that CBD is not just a fad, and in fact is a ‘miracle-cure’ solution for effective pain management & disease treatment!

Growers of all skill levels have several goals in common. Perhaps the most central objective is the hunt for increased levels of compounds such as ‘THC’. The search for the perfect ‘high’ is now at a fever pitch.

Most recreational users prefer THC over CBD. Thus, new genetic developments in breeding have been focused on ensuring more robust and more potent harvests.

Keep reading for an exclusive WeGrow guide to the compound Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol – otherwise known as ‘THC’.

 

What is THC?


Cannabis plants contain over 100 compounds. One of the most important these is Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It is recognized as the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive nature.

Cannabis use can be traced as far back as ancient Chinese dynasties from around 3,000 B.C. and earlier. People have used it since then and studied it further in the 20th century. Modern recreational smokers can be excited about enhanced cross-breeding techniques that will surely raise THC levels, making their “high” better.

How does THC work with the body?

Cannabinoids work with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). ECS is responsible for the relationship between receptors and cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, CBN. The compound THC affects our brain cells to unleash the epinephrine precursor Dopamine.

This release of chemicals in the brain creates a unique state of euphoria. This varies depending on the person. Effects of THC can last for up to two hours. Onset symptoms can be felt anywhere between 10 to 40 minutes after ingestion.

Are there any Benefits to Ingesting THC?

Similar to other cannabis compounds, THC has its own list of benefits; researchers have recognized it as an anti-carcinogen. It has also been used to help treat glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, & inflammatory bowel disease.

It even promotes a more active metabolism! THC also helps ease discomfort from ailments such as arthritis and osteoporosis. This compound has become the ‘miracle drug’ for many cultures throughout the entire world!

Are there any side effects of THC?

The negative effects of cannabis consumption are basically nonexistent. Despite the propaganda of the 1920s, the world is slowly beginning to realize its folly.

Ingesting THC can cause many benign effects such as increased (or decreased) sociability, redness of eyes, and leads to finding normally non-humorous things hilarious.

However, it is important to note: individuals with addictive personalities, and individuals previously diagnosed with psychosis or psychotic traits can have some negative effects from THC.
