Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
Scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the US government—underscores CBD's potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders.
CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high doses.
Almost everyone wants to know where to get CBD-rich products and how to use them for maximum benefit. After decades in which only high-THC cannabis was available in North America and beyond, CBD-rich strains and products are now available to medical users.
"CBD-rich" versus "CBD dominant"
By "CBD-rich", we mean a cannabis strain or product that has equal amounts of CBD and THC, or more CBD than THC (usually at least 4 percent CBD by dry weight.). By “CBD-dominant” we mean strains or products that are CBD-rich but have very little THC content.
Transpring has been focusing on medical vaping devices for extracts for years. We believe in the medical effects of CBD and hope in the future it will make the world better and lesser pain.
CBD is said to relieve chronic pain, anxiety, and treat patients who suffer insomnia, depression, etc. Recently FDA approved the first-ever cannabis-derived medicine for childhood epilepsy syndromes, which contains CBD.
A word from Transpring
We'll look forward to seeing more rigorous scientific research on the potential medical uses of marijuana-derived products. If you're thinking of using CBD products to treat a health problem, make sure that you use the right dosage.
