THC and CBD: the ultimate pairing.
Weed is the second-most popular recreational drug on the planet used in some form by more than a quarter-billion people worldwide in 2016. Despite its varying legal status, many people feel that cannabis use improves their life in more ways than one. Some pot-smokers even believe the “devil’s lettuce” makes them a better person, but that’s another post for another day.
All introspection aside, if this sounds like you, then you don’t really fit the “stoner” stereotype…but here’s a little secret: most stoners don’t. But most stoners also aren’t aware that their weed is only giving them half the benefits that cannabis has to offer.
Cannabis is a wonder of nature and has been used by thousands of cultures, for thousands of years, for thousands of reasons. Only recently, in the last 50 years or so, did scientists finally discover cannabinoids: the main ingredients of cannabis. Everyone knows of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol because it produces the mood-altering and euphoric effects that make cannabis users feel “high.”
But THC is just one of the more than 113 cannabinoids produced by this unique plant – and it’s the only psychoactive cannabinoid.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is another compound found only in cannabis plants, but its effect is way off from that of THC. CBD can’t make you stoned by itself, but millions of people have added CBD to their daily regimen because of what it can do. From alleviating social anxiety and road rage to relieving the symptoms of arthritis and cancer pain, CBD can be found in medicine cabinets, gym lockers, and stash bags alike.
So why all the hype over a cannabinoid that can’t even make me high?
CBD does have everyday practicality for people with anxiety, chronic pain, and a boatload of other conditions that put a drag on quality of life. But this only begins to scratch the surface.
CBD is a miracle of nature, plain and simple.
