The National Institute on Drug Abuse explains that CBD still affects (but doesn’t bind to) the same receptors (CB1 and CB2) as THC.
However, “There is also growing evidence that CBD acts on other brain signalling systems, and that these actions may be important contributors to its therapeutic effects.”
So it appears that CBD may target entirely different parts of the brain.
While there is still not enough evidence to conclusively support CBD as a solution to the many reported ailments that people take it for, that doesn’t stop people using it and self-reporting.
The individual claims are widespread, the studies are starting to mount, however we’re not there yet. at the moment, CBD is a very personal journey as there are no clear directives on how to use it. Sometimes, however, that’s no bad thing.
There is a beauty in using a product and listening to your own body to see how it reacts as opposed to relying on someone else to tell you what you’re supposed to be feeling. That’s why we recommend to start low and build up the amount of CBD you use. Then listen. Try not to add too many new foods or make too many changes in the one go because you simply won’t be able to identify what’s having an impact.
Make a change, listen, observe, then repeat that same change to see if your observations are the same. When you identify what’s happening, make another change.
By doing this we give ourselves the gift of listening and understanding our own body whilst making incremental changes. One at a time.
Granted, this also means that CBD isn’t for everyone so, in the end, cater your strain to your personal health needs.
The Cannwell variation is virtually THC-free and is legal to use.
