This is all a great disgrace that any of this is illegal and is simply an artifact of our corrupt, corporate-driven political system, still in place to this day. This has dramatically limited the potential for real research by real scientists to be conducted. That research is critical to better understanding the multitude of therapeutic effects of the various chemical constituents found in Cannabis.
Other Supplements – There are a variety of supplements that can be used along with CBD to aid in sleep, mainly Melatonin. This makes CBD a much safer option (which certainly isn’t to say that THC is a risky one) with limited side effects. CBD does not cause the ‘high’ that is associated with THC, and is also not known to cause issues with anxiety and psychosis that have been observed in some cases with THC.
Cannabidiol may partially normalize alterations in parahippocampal, striatal, and midbrain function associated with the CHR state. As these regions are critical to the pathophysiology of psychosis, the influence of CBD at these sites could underlie its therapeutic effects on psychotic symptoms. In the best case scenarios, my patients have completely eliminated the use of opioids and just use CBD on an as needed basis to manage their pain. In regards to CBD eliminating pain, it depends on what level of pain the patient starts with. If the patient starts with mild to moderate levels of pain, then, it’s certainly possible to eliminate the pain.
Stage 3 And 4 Sleep
- California Food and Agricultural Code Section 81006specifies THC content and crop destruction requirements of hemp crops.
- California Food and Agricultural Code Section 81006requires registrants to obtain a laboratory test report indicating the percentage content of THC prior to harvest.
- CDFA does not maintain a list of certified sellers of industrial hemp seed.
The melatonin level per dropperful is 5 mg, a bit higher than often recommended (1-3 mg) but reasonable. Each dropperful also contains 15 mg of CBD along with proprietary amounts of the herbs. Proprietary—they just list the total mg amounts of all the herbs—250mg.
We Know Basically Nothing About Cbd
There are hundreds of chemicals found in both Hemp and Cannabis. CBD likely acts as an antagonist to THC and will likely reduce the euphoric properties of THC. THC has very important therapeutic effects that are both noteworthy and novel as well.
