Magnetic Magazine just released this great article offering some insight into the ways CBD Oil’s emergence into the mainstream consumer universe is changing the public’s views on Cannabis.
CBD – Dismantling Long-Established Misconceptions, One Myth at a Time
A THC-free CBD oil means no high, no psychoactive effects – only a gentle boost to the body’s inner workings. There will of course still be people who hear the word cannabis and instantly jump to the wrong conclusion but with more and more information in circulation we are rapidly moving towards a time where CBD’s non-psychoactive nature is becoming a widely accepted fact.
Inside every living mammal on earth, there is an endocannabinoid system, which controls almost everything that makes us who we are. Our body produces endocannabinoids in small quantities, which stimulate the CBD receptors and help our bodies to work well and efficiently.
Phytocannabinoids, found in abundance in CBD oil carry out the same function as endocannabinoids when consumed and exist in much greater quantities than the body produces on its own. The result is a more balanced, better functioning endocannabinoid system and in turn, a greater sense of health and wellbeing.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have already licensed cannabis derived medications for conditions like epilepsy and it immediately becomes evident that for cannabis, the general consensus is no longer that of a negative substance, or at least is in the process of doing so.
The start of this polar shift in opinion with regards to cannabis has come in large part from the adoption of CBD Oil into the routines of people across the Western world. More and more people are taking the product primarily because of the way it makes them feel – healthier.
