420 Q and A – How Does CBD Work?
Common CBD Related FAQs
There are a ton of questions about CBD because it’s so new and also it’s confusing for people that didn’t smoke weed for years. Some of the latest CBD questions in 2021 are:
FAQ #1 = What are Some of the Main Benefits of CBD?
CBD is a type of cannabinoid that interacts with the endocannabinoid system. CBD has different benefits for humans and animals.
Some of the benefits for humans include helping with epilepsy, lowering inflammation in the body, reduce blood sugar levels and anxiety.
Some of the benefits for animals include help with joint pain, diabetes, cancer and itching.
OTHER CBD BENEFITS INCLUDE:
– It is a great source of relief from inflammation – It is safer than many other options for pain relief – It helps with PMS, menstrual cramps and mood swings
– CBD Oil may be an option to help patients living with epilepsy or Parkinson’s disease. Studies have shown that it can provide protection against seizures as well as lessen the severity of side effects from these diseases such as tics and tremors
– CBD is a good pain reliever – It can be used to combat the effects of chronic pain and fibromyalgia. It’s safer than many other options for pain relief
– CBD helps with PMS, menstrual cramps, and mood swings as well
– CBD oil may help with sleeping problems
FAQ #2 – Does CBD Show up on Drug Tests?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of many chemical compounds in the cannabis plant and has no known psychoactive properties.
Being a non-psychoactive compound, CBD does not show up on a routine drug screening conducted by employers or other institutions outside of marijuana.
CBD is carried in targeted areas throughout the body but it mostly accumulates in the organs from which it is easily expelled via urine and feces. This makes observing lingering effects much more unlikely than with THC.
FAQ #3 – How Long Does CBD Stay in your System?
For those who are wondering how long does CBD stay in your system, there are too few studies to give a good answer yet, but what little evidence we do have seems to show that most people clear out within days after any therapeutic dosage—meaning you can rest easy after a weekend of CBD-only relaxation.
For most users, the effects of Cannabidiol wear off within one to three days but note that this can vary depending on factors such as your body size and metabolism rate.
Those who decide to take high doses over longer periods of time may want to know how long does CBD stay in your system—and there are some theories out there that hold up pretty well under scrutiny.
What Does The Research Say?
Studies have shown that many cannabinoids reach their peak levels in the bloodstream between 10 minutes and 2 hours after ingestion, and then they are almost completely broken down by enzymes before being excreted from the body.
But with THC metabolite (the compound left behind when THC is broken down by the body) is much harder to detect and may still be present in your urine for anywhere from 30 days to more than a month after use.
This table gives us an insight as to how long it takes various drugs to get out of your system:
Drug Time Before Elimination
Marijuana (THC) 1-5 Days
Amphetamines 2-4 Days
Barbiturates 10–90 Days
Benzodiazepines 14–53 Days
Nicotine 1 Day
Opiates 3–21 Days
LSD 8-24 Hours
Caffeine 0.3–9.6 Days
FAQ #4 – Does CBD oil get you High?
No, CBD doesn’t get you high.
Cannabinol (CBD) according to the FDA is an illegal and unlawful medication because it does not have any medical benefits.
However, the only evidence for this claim is that marijuana can make one “high.” That does not qualify as a medical benefit; furthermore, there are many studies that prove that marijuana has various health benefits. (YOU THINK?! – I mean by now this has finally been proven over and over)
Sadly due to political pressure from cannabis prohibitionists who do not care what they subject their patients suffering from cancer or other serious illnesses to so long as they stay uninformed on all alternatives these folks suffer and continue on dangerous pharmaceuticals laden with side effects much worse than cannabis could ever be!
FAQ #5 – Is CBD good for headaches?
Some studies have found cannabis with high CBD to work much better in the treatment of headaches than higher THC medication (such if one was made by a company like Valeant).
I would suggest someone consult their doctor or read some more information on google about this topic before procuring any form of CBD oil or using High CBD strains such as these: Charlotte’s Web, Harlequin, Jock Horror, ACDC (Pure Kana Brand), Rain Dance or Cannatonic- These also all have pretty low THC percentage levels.
