Everybody wants CBD, when it is actually THC they need…
Due to Constance Pure Botanical Extracts being among the first in the world to grow CBD-rich cannabis, as well as being the first in northern California and perhaps the world to make CBD oil, most of our queries come from people looking for CBD oil for their medical cannabis needs. However, the truth is, once we learn about the nature of their condition, we normally discuss with their physician an extract that is primarily THC with some added CBD.
There is a lot of misunderstanding about CBD’s place in cannabis therapeutics. Heightened media coverage and state legislators who responds to demand with CBD-only laws, have given a rise to some pervasive myths, including one that compares CBD with the sole medical value of cannabis.
Who can benefit from CBD?
With that said, and from our extensive experience working with various physicians, there are certain types of patients who can benefit greatly from a CBD treatment as an addition to their medical treatment, including; epileptics; some Parkinson’s patients; some patients with severe auto immune disorders; patients with bi-polar disorder; multiple sclerosis patients; and people with ADD.
CBD is especially well suited as an anti-spasmodic and anti-anxiety remedy. CBD oil can also help to fight pain and inflammation – although we find THC to be more consistently effective in this regard. Interestingly enough, THC and CBD use complementary and different pathways to fight inflammation. Generally, CBD would be recommended for patients who can’t tolerate too much THC and respond well to CBD as a treatment for their medical condition.
THC and CBD Synergy in Cancer Treatment
Many queries come from cancer patients who believe that CBD is the active cancer-fighting component in cannabis – another myth. THC is the go-to compound for helping cancer patients, and has been for many years. However, more recent studies show that THC does not act alone. CBD, while having anti-cancer properties and working on different pathways than THC, boosts THC’s effectiveness by mitigating its unwanted effects, thus allowing for higher doses of THC to be consumed for greater clinical efficacy and safety.
Can I Purchase Cannabis Oil Online?
Currently, it is not possible to legally purchase cannabis oil online. Some manufacturers evade this by offering CBD oil made from industrial hemp, which is legal in some countries. Hemp is low in THC and it is undecided whether it has a significant amount of CBD as well. Additionally, a recent report has been released regarding consumers becoming seriously ill due to contaminated hemp oil products – a risk that runs high in commercial hemp production. We strongly warn against buying CBD oil online as it is possibly unsafe and of inferior quality.
