CBD oils are created from the seeds of the hemp plant. CBD, as the name suggests, stands for cannabidiol. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in high amounts in hemp seeds. They can also be extracted from the plant’s oil or dried seeds.
As you may know, drugs are sometimes sprayed with synthetic chemicals to make them stronger. These synthetic chemicals are known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are substances produced by the body. For example, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main psychoactive substance in marijuana. It is this substance that gets people “high”. Because of this, many marijuana smokers have become addicted to the drug. The only reason most people are not addicted to THC is because they are not smoking marijuana.
Instead, the substance known as CBD is used in a variety of products. It has the same psychoactive properties as THC, but does not produce any physical effects at all. There are some known and reported side effects that may occur from CBD oils. However, studies done in the past years show that these side effects were just as likely to occur from regular oil as from CBD. In fact, some of the negative effects that CBD has been reported on have actually been caused by regular cannabis oil. Some users have reported depression after using CBD oils. Although there are no long term side effects of using CBD, it is advisable to consult a doctor before using it.
