Cannabidiol, or CBD as it is more commonly known, is an interesting member of the cannabis family. Cannabidiol is not a psychoactive drug, by definition. However, there is evidence to suggest that it may have medical benefits. In fact, it has been used for quite some time in Europe and the United States as a natural alternative to prescribed pain relief medication, such as aspirin. It was first thought to be a promising treatment for seizures with potential anti-psychotic properties. Recent research has suggested that cannabidiol may also be effective in treating some forms of cancer, including brain tumors.
To understand cannabidiol, it is necessary to understand the chemistry and physiology of cannabis. cannabis is actually a group of very old plants that were once grown by Native Americans. It has been reported, however, that this group of plants has only been cultivated and used for medicinal purposes for about 5000 years. With few exceptions, the most common strains of cannabis strains that are high in delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and low in CBD.
To better appreciate the medicinal qualities of cannabis, it is important to understand how the cannabis plant grows. The cannabis plant begins growing in the soil, turning either yellow or red to green. A thin stem grows from a single stem tip called a thistle, which flowers and stops growing once it starts blooming. Two other main types of flowering buds are the calendula and buttercups.
In North America and Europe, two major subspecies of the cannabis indica are identified. The most popular one is the indica, which is the most widely known and most widely used. It has high levels of THC, also known as the “date rape” drug. However, other strains have less THC and are not as popular. Some are more compact than others, some have higher levels of CBD and some have extremely high levels of THC.
Some of the differences between cannabis indica and cannabis sativa that have medical significance are that the Sativa has relatively lower levels of THC. However, THC is found in higher concentrations in cannabis sativa, meaning that the effects of THC on the body are more similar to that of cocaine, or methamphetamine. THC is also found in cannabis indica that has not been crossbred with marijuana. The cannabidiol (CBD) is not produced by the same system in cannabis sativa, so it does not produce the euphoric effect. But CBD has been shown to reduce anxiety and help reduce symptoms of certain mental diseases. It has also been shown to be effective in treating some of the pain associated with cancer.

Crossbreeding between different varieties of cannabis indica has led to some plant varieties that are high in CBD and low in THC (which has only been found in a few plants). So far, it appears that the effects of CBD are not harmful to adults. However, children should avoid cannabis indica with high CBD concentration, such as the “Kush-MAT” variety. High CBD concentration can cause an adverse reaction when exposed to the air, such as coughing.
Some of the variations between cannabis indica are the types of trimming used to get the desired result. Some varieties of the plant are crossbred to produce “evergreen”, varieties that stay green year round, unlike the other varieties that lose their leaves in fall. Crossbreeding also allows researchers to better understand the chemistry of the various plant compounds called terpenes. Terpenes are a family of powerful, natural chemicals that are responsible for the “potency” of the cannabis plant. When a specific mixture of terpenes and CBD is crossed, a certain level of CBD becomes active.
Over the last few years, many people from all over the world have started using cannabis indica for uplifting their lives. Many people who start using this plant find that they begin to feel less stressed, focused, and more alert in a short period of time. This is because of the CBD and terpenes that help make it an ideal replacement for alcohol and other medications. Also, many people who try it to experience a “high” like feeling that is similar to being high on cocaine. It is this high that gives cannabis indica such a unique advantage over similar dosages of alternative medicines.
