It is by far one of the most versatile of medications out there. The sheer endless list of health benefits of this humble natural extract has turned heads for quite some time now. Scientists are continuing to prove the vast untapped potential that this extract holds, and we are learning new things about it every other day.
The CBD industry has taken the wellness world by storm, and even if you don’t know jack about it, you must have come across an article or somebody you know speaking about it. Some may have been on the bandwagon for a while and know their fair share of quirks regarding cannabidiol. But even for them, there are still plenty of facts that they may not have chanced across.
Here are some interesting facts on CBD that you may not have known:
Cannabis Plants Can Yield High CBD Strains Too
Cross-breeding has made this a possibility. Marijuana and cannabis owners are able to combine the strains of various cannabis plants and manipulate the biological structure that allows them to create marijuana that is lower in THC and higher in CBD.
Generally speaking, THC is a majority in marijuana- making up around 40% of the dry weight. These new strains will not have the signature ‘marijuana high’, but still have the benefits of the entourage effects from both CBD as well THC.
Your Body Doesn’t Care Where The CBD Comes From
CBD is CBD- it doesn’t matter the source. Confused? Here’s an analogy.
Vitamin-C is a vitamin that is present in both orange and spinach. When your body breaks down the foods and at the molecular level, it extracts and absorbs vitamin-C.
The same is true for CBD as well. While it is true that the percentage of CBD present in hemp is significantly lower than the level of selectively bred marijuana plants, once the oil is extracted then it is all the same.
CBD Can Help Your Pet
Surprisingly, it is not just humans that can benefit from CBD- even your four-legged friends can as well. The reason is that; the system through which CBD exacts its benefits in humans, called the Endocannabinoid system is a system that is present in all mammals. The same benefits that you achieve-pain relief, inflammation control, anxiety, and stress-relieving, sleep-inducing- can be enjoyed by your pets as well.
Consult a vet before you introduce your dogs, cats, hamsters to CBD therapy to relieve them of their pains. They will advise and guide you appropriately.
