Usually, when we are talking about classic nature-based medicine all we think of is some herbals, but in 21st century everything is changing rapidly and so is changing the landscape of medicine and medical products. In modern days, we have a new trending product in medical field that is the subject of high interest from doctors, scientists and many other people.
This new trending product on the medical field is called Cannabidiol, or you may have heard of it as a CBD. The popularity of it grows rapidly, every day more and more people get interested in it and many see it as a future game changer in the medical industry, while some see it just as a potential danger that will disappear soon. Right now, one thing is clear – the interest about it very high and it is growing every single day, the question is, how it all will end?
To catch up with modern medicine trend and understand what a CBD actually is, or why it is becoming so popular in all people, especially in young people and why it is labeled as a future game changer by some experts while some have very less trust and a lot of negative feelings for it, we need to better explore it, its uses and some details about it.
What a CBD or CBD Oil actually is?
There are good chances you have heard of CBD Oil but actually, there are much more products that are based on CBD or at least contain it. You can find different variety of products containing CBD including gels, edibles, liquids for vape, sprays, capsules, tablets, hand lotions and even shampoos, literally, there are nearly all products available with CBD in it. But what a CBD is?
CBD for short form, or Cannabidiol for a full form is the largest non-psychoactive component of marijuana. This means that it is not the component that gives you buzz or gets you high when you smoke a weed, but it is still a huge part of marijuana and that is the most interesting part.
While it was proved long ago that marijuana can be useful to fight against some very problematic diseases and medical issues such as cancer, or a strong pain, it was still illegal in all countries for decades and was not even widely used in medicine. Why? Because marijuana gives you some “high feeling” which was treated as a similar feeling caused by narcotics, or in other words, marijuana was treated as a narcotic and any kind of use for it was illegal, highly disliked. Now that the usage of marijuana is completely ok and legal in many countries, there is even more interest in its usage in medicine, especially after recent researches showing many positive effects of marijuana.
CBD can fix the most painful problem of marijuana – while it may be useful to combat some medical issues and diseases, it is still giving you buzz & “high feel” that many people don’t need in the medical field, but a CBD is a different product. A high-quality CBD, produced from the high-quality cannabis plant, which is based on best cannabis seeds and was grown with a good care, can be a really effective product in medicine to combat a lot of diseases and issues. Unlike marijuana, it is non psychotropic what means it will not have any buzz or high feel, so in other words, it can be a medicine with no any problematic side effects and a lot of effectiveness – that’s the major reason why many doctors, experts, and scientists are interested in it and see it as a potential game-changer in medical industry in future.
Is CBD a game changer in present time?
While the interest about it is really very high and a lot of people are talking and thinking about it, CBD still is not a real game changer, for now. Of course, having so many attention is already a big accomplishment, but still, it is not legal in all countries and in all states in The United States.
Also, while it has good potential to change the way medicine treats many diseases, it is still not fully explored and widely used in modern medicine, it is still a test subject. While there are many products that are purely based on CBD or at least contain it, while some of those products are legal and freely available in supermarkets and stores, still some products based on it are not 100% legal and accepted for usage.
