Most of us have some knowledge of what cannabis is. Still a lot of people are not aware that this plant contains more than a hundred various chemical compounds called cannabinoids.
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) are the most well-known and occurring cannabinoids. Although both compounds come from the same plant, they have different effects on humans. People have used THC in different forms for medical and recreational purposes for decades, but CBD has only started gaining popularity recently and is quickly becoming more and more popular because of its potential positive health benefits.
What is CBD and how is it different from THC and traditional medicinal marijuana?
CBD is highly valued because of its high medicinal potential. Unlike THC, CBD does not bind to the body’s CB1 receptors, and this makes it non-psychoactive. And the good news is – CBD can have a range of positive effects on the mind and the body. That is why a lot of CBD products have recently emerged on the market, providing the consumers with lots of choice and different ways of using CBD.
Most CBD products typically have minimal to no amounts of mind altering THC in them which is why a lot of people prefer them to traditional medical marijuana and related products. Of course, you still have validate the THC content in the products you are buying by checking the product’s specifications and asking your suppliers for third party lab tests, if available. This step is essential as many fake products are entering the market giving the rising popularity of CBD.
Not only does CBD not make consumers high, but CBD can even help counteract the negative psychoactive effects of THC, which is so important to many patients. This also means that the non-psychoactive compound is ideal for chiropractors. And especially those who follow the philosophy of not utilizing prescription medicine or drugs on their patients.
Is CBD legal?
In short, CBD products derived from non-psychoactive parts of the cannabis plant are legal as long as the industrial hemp used in the process is grown and cultivated pursuant to an agricultural pilot program authorized under the Farm Bill. A more nuanced answer is that tensions between federal and state authorities still persist as the Farm Bill under which states can create their own pilot program regulations for hemp derived products while DEA is unwilling to cooperate until there is a federal law legislating hemp production.
However, there are finally signs that this situation is likely to change for the better. As DEA public affairs officer recently told Business Insider, recent approval by FDA of CBD-based pharmaceutical drug, could give rise to CBD finally being distinguished from opioids.
Considering all of the above, many chiropractors started using CBD products made exclusively from hemp as part of their treatment plans and aftercare.
