Why CBD Might Not Work For You

December 14, 2020

There are several articles and publications available on the internet that extol the values of CBD but one point that all seem to avoid is that CBD may not work for everyone and there are reasons.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid that interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the body to correct anomalies, improve performance, and impact overall health and wellness. The substance has had proven efficacy in the treatment and management of a diverse range of ailments including autoimmune conditions, inflammation, pain, symptoms resulting from cancer treatment, etc. But then, there are those who say this has not been their case.

For people who have tried CBD and can’t seem to understand what the hype is about since it didn’t work for them, we have outlined a few reasons why CBD may not have worked for you.

Counterfeit Products

For want of a better description, we chose to describe products without proper certification as counterfeit. Currently, there are no standard regulatory oversights in the cannabis industry. Much of what happens in the industry is self-censorship backed by third party testing validation.

To affirm that products are of good quality, they must have a third party test certificate from a reputable lab. Products that do not have these certificates are likely deceitful about the content of the products as marketed. So, if you have been using products without a test certificate, check - that could be why you are not getting the benefits of CBD. The product may not contain CBD in the right amounts as advertised.

Improper Dosing

With CBD, the rule of thumb is to start small and work your way up to your appropriate dose. Some individuals neglect this simple rule, and as you would likely expect, they end up dissatisfied. Dosing is critical to getting the benefits of CBD. Too much and you might experience some adverse side effects, too little and you just might not feel any effect. Knowing and fixing the right dose is as important as buying from the right source.

Genetic Makeup

Although these set falls under a small minority, it is important we mention it. There are those who CBD would have no effect on due to their unique genetic makeup. No one knows for sure why this is the case, but then, it has to be expected. Genetics plays a huge role in how our body reacts to medications and treatment. And as CBD is a medication, it is expected that it can also be influenced by your genes.

Our Thoughts

On a lighter note, CBD works, but if you are having challenges with how it works for you, it’s best you speak with your doctor to understand what might be the problem. But it works!

How Does CBD Affect Our Memory?

December 21, 2020

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been negatively affected by the effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is even true when it comes to memory. THC has been studied for far longer than CBD. As a result, we know how THC negatively affects cognitive functions.

Long term use of THC has been proven to cause the hippocampus to shrink. This is the part of the temporal lobe that is associated with memory. As a result, THC is blamed for people who partake often to have a bad memory.

Short term memory loss is the main culprit caused by extensive use of THC. Studies actually suggest that users who experiment with THC products will not be affected in the long term. Any damage caused will be repaired in a matter of weeks.

Forms of CBD and Extraction Methods

December 18, 2020

Have you ever wondered how CBD is made? No… Well, that’s the essence of today’s piece. In today’s article, we will be talking about the various forms of CBD and the extraction methods of CBD.

You must have come across individuals who consume CBD flowers raw. While it can be very unpleasant, it also doesn’t avail the individual of all the benefits of the plant. You see, for the cannabinoids in cannabis to be effective, they must be decarboxylated (applying heat).

Decarboxylation causes the plant to release all its useful properties and become easily absorbable by the body. Smoking hemp causes it to decarboxylate instantly but what if you don’t like to smoke? That’s where CBD extracts come to the rescue.

Knowing the Difference Between Marijuana and Hemp

December 17, 2020

Marijuana, hemp and cannabis are terms that are often loosely used interchangeably. Without a grounded knowledge on what they mean and how they’re applied, you might make the same mistake many have made when speaking about cannabis and terms under the topic.

While it might seem that they mean the same thing, they are starkly different and can be applied to different purposes.

This is not to spoil the fun but for simplicity, it is the amount of THC content in a cannabis plant that differentiates hemp from marijuana.

Yea! I said it, but there is still more to know to gain a clearer understanding of what they mean and how to use them in conversations. In this article, we would define what each of the term means, their origin and how they differ from each other.
