The difference between CBD and THC
THC has a psychotropic effect on the body. It is present in the resin that is on the cannabis flowers. If you take more or less of it, it can change your state of consciousness and make you "high".
The effects of the other main cannabinoid, Cannabidiol (CBD), are very different from THC. Firstly, CBD is not psychoactive, so there is no psychotropic effect and there is no dependence, this molecule is not classified as a drug. It has a relaxing, calming effect without the "high" effect. It is very appreciated by people who like to smoke but also by patients suffering from diseases that can be relieved by CBD.
Several studies have been done and others are still ongoing concerning the therapeutic effects of CBD on certain diseases. In fact, a study was done in 2012 which showed that CBD has the role of regulating the effects of THC on the body, it also mitigates the paranoia attacks and disturbing effects caused by Tetrahydrocannabinol. In 2017, the World Health Organization confirmed that CBD consumption poses no health risks or side effects. On the contrary, cannabidiol is full of health benefits.
Does CBD help fight THC addiction ?
According to a study done in 2016, CBD in doses between 400 and 800 mg is effective for THC withdrawal without bad side effects. This study confirms that the use of CBD to treat addictions of all kinds (alcoholism, drug addiction, etc.) is very effective.
Withdrawing from cannabis is complicated for a number of smokers because of the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal. During withdrawal you may experience high anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, headaches or nausea. CBD can help alleviate all these distressing symptoms. It is known for its soothing and relaxing properties that serve to reduce your stress and possible irritability. In addition, cannabidiol boosts mood and positive thoughts. It also helps a lot of people sleep, which can be helpful against insomnia that can be caused by THC withdrawal.
CBD exists in many forms. It can be found in oils, creams, foods, etc. And of course, in the form of flowers to be smoked or vaped. The level of THC in them can vary from country to country depending on the law, and therefore so can their effects. Another interesting thing about flowers is that there are many different varieties with different flavours. Do you like lemon? Let yourself be tempted by a delicious Lemon Haze! Do you prefer a fruitier flavour? Then the Paradise Kush or Tropical should do the trick! This form of CBD is recommended for people who are used to smoking joints.
If you don't want to continue smoking, then CBD oils are probably for you! But how does it work? It's very simple: you place 4-5 drops under your tongue, hold them there for 20-30 seconds to allow the CBD to penetrate your mucous membranes and then swallow them. In addition to helping you wean yourself off THC, these oils can also help with stress, anxiety, and muscle and joint pain if you have any !
