The oral usage of cannabis plant that is known to be non-addictive and non-psychotropic in nature is a plant constituent cannabidiol – known as CBD –which is absolutely safe for human use. In fact, it is well tolerated by our beings and can show rather positive and beneficial results as far as our health is concerned. This was further backed by the scientific data publish in the journal called Current Pharmaceutical Design.
Other investigators and researchers reveal that the oral intake of 10mg of THC did not show very beneficial or promising results. In fact, the consumption of THC (in as low as 10mg) was linked with a number of behavioral and physiological effects. Sometimes, it even lead to sedation and increased in heart rate, which resulted in health complications. On the other hand, the administration of CBDas much as 600 mg did not show any negative or harmful results.
The investigators then concluded that no differences were found between placebo and CBD on any physiological, symptomatic variable. When volunteers with good health used THC for a certain time, they showed acute physiological and behavioraleffects – even though the oral administration of THC was in a small quantity. On the other hand, when the same volunteers took CBD, they showed healthy results and concluded that the oral administration of CBD is not only safe and well-tolerated, but also healthy.
According to another study featured on CNN, Dr. Sanjay Gupta concluded why he was forced to change his mind on smoking weed. According to him, people have been systematically and terribly been misled for around seven decades within the United States for their consumption of marijuana. He believes that considering marijuana a part of the drug pharmacopeia in the United States was a big loss that continued for almost 70 years.
He further explained with the help of his research. Marijuana was usually prescribed for neuropathic pain – this is one condition that can be controlled with the oral administration of marijuana. The doctor further confesses that his utmost fear was to find out that every 19 minutes a death takes place in the United States due to drug overdose – which in most cases is accidental and not deliberate. This statistic is so horrific keeping in mind that every 19 minute one individual is losing his or her life just because they had a drug overdose. He declared that he continued to search and search only to find out if the same results can be expected from marijuana as well but the results of his research surprised him.
There was not even a single death case that was documented as a result of marijuana overdose. As a result, he believes that we have been following this myth for a very long time – thinking marijuana is harmful for our system whereas CBD has been recognized for its ultimate health benefits.
Even BBC News didn’t stay behind and adding its two cents to the whole research. BBC news declared how the compounds of cannabis can help halt a deadly disease like cancer. However, even cannabis may have certain psychoactive properties and that’s the reason CBD remains on top of the list.CBDis not associated with kind of psychoactive properties therefore it can’t be used for violating laws.
The declaration was made after the reports of the Molecular Cancer Therapeutics were released.
According to CNS Neuroscience and Therapeutics, CBD or cannabidiol was considered as a promising drug that could help with various neurodegenerative disorders. CBD thatmakes up around 40 percent of the Cannabis extract has been declared as one of the most promising drug that could be utilized to deal with any psychoactive and cognitive reactions. Moreover, it is highly tolerable for human oral administration and thus provides immense level of health benefits
Also, cannabidiol also has a very negligible toxicity and therefore is not harmful for humans. Before the benefits were revealed and CBD was declared beneficial for health, a large number of trials have been carried out to confirm its clinical efficacy.
All in all, if you want a very straight forward answer to “if it is safe to use?” the one-word answer would be “absolutely!”
