Is cannabidiol CBD oil (DM CBD) a drug? Does it work?

Cannabis is addictive, but cannabidiol CBD is addictive? Smoking marijuana is drug use, is consuming cannabidiol CBD drug use?

The answer is: cannabidiol CBD is not addictive and does not cause high.

Let’s not talk about CBD first, let’s talk about some of the currently more addictive substances: opium, a drug derived from poppy, which is refined from opium to morphine; the king of drugs in the world is the fastest addictive heroin

Experiments have long documented the difference in their addictiveness: marijuana < morphine < heroin, and the difference in toxicity: marijuana < morphine < heroin. However, the above-mentioned substances, which are more addictive and toxic than marijuana, are now being legally available in another form and used in medicine: opioids.

As we all know, opioids are resin exudates extracted from poppy capsules, together with artificial semi-synthetic narcotic and analgesic drugs, which are affectionately called legal drugs. After repeated use of opioids, there will be dual dependence on the mind and body. Once addicted, it is very difficult to treat, overdose, and even die.

Currently, the U.S. and other medical marijuana regions around the world are advocating the use of marijuana to alleviate the problem of opioid abuse, because marijuana and opioids have the same pain relief effect, but the side effects and abuse problems are lower than opioids.

The main reason why cannabis is gradually taking the medical road is cannabidiol CBD. CBD is an important chemical constituent in medical marijuana. It is extracted from female cannabis and it is a non-addictive constituent in cannabis. Anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, and other pharmacological effects.

CBD can not only act on the treatment of many difficult diseases but CBD also effectively eliminates the hallucinogenic effect of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) on the human body, which is called an anti-marijuana compound.

Here’s an interlude to the medical application of CBD. In 2013, a CNN report in the United States attracted worldwide attention. An American girl named Charlotte suffered from frequent epilepsy due to congenital Dravet syndrome. At the age of 3, her seizures were severe 300 times a week, which is equivalent to one attack every half an hour. After seeking medical treatment to no avail, in 2011, Charlotte’s parents risked jail time to try the cannabis extract CBD for her and it worked well.

Since then, various medical uses of CBD have been widely studied in all walks of life. Many well-known journals and research institutions such as Jama Psychiatry, Journal of Research Pharmacology and Experimental Therapy, and the US National Library of Medicine have published articles proving the multiplication of CBD to a medical value.

In addition, in June 2018, the U.S. The Food and Drug Administration FDA also approved the drug Epidiolex for the first time, which is composed of active ingredients extracted from cannabis. In December 2018, U.S. President Trump signed the “Farm Bill”, approving the legalization of industrial hemp in the United States and the legalization of cannabidiol CBD.

Does CBD Make You High?

Regarding the question of whether CBD is addictive, there are a large number of institutions and data to prove that:

1 The World Health Organization (WHO) has publicly stated that no unhealthy factors have been found in CBD. CBD not only does not have the same hallucinogenic effects as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) but also reduces the negative effects of THC.

CBD can be used as an effective treatment for epilepsy in adults, children, and even animals; in addition, CBD can be used to treat Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, psychosis, Parkinson’s disease, and other serious conditions.

2 In early 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) officially removed CBD from its “Prohibited Substances List”.

Most CBD products contain a small number of other ingredients (THC or other compounds), and these other ingredients must not exceed 0.3%, so it does not affect its main effect.

For example, most beers contain 4.2% to 5.5% ABV (alcohol by volume), while non-alcoholic types (like O’Doul’s) only have around 0.4% ABV. While these alcohol-free blends do technically contain some alcohol, these drinks, like CBD products with other substances, won’t cause people to be intoxicated or be diagnosed as “addicts.”

So if a patient consumes more than 1,000 milligrams of CBD per day, a small amount of THC in a CBD product is only likely to trigger a false positive, but the chances of that are minimal. According to statistics, most CBD users consume between 120 and 160 mg per day on average.

To sum up, CBD is not addictive, does not cause high, and can treat a variety of diseases.
