Medical Benefits of CBD Vape
Also called “cannabinol”, CBD is a molecule derived from cannabis, somehow the brother of THC without the same effects and legal. This molecule contains no psychoactive principle, has no effect on the nervous system and even has many therapeutic applications.
The vapers use it to spend a moment of relaxation and relaxation without the negative effects of THC.
Cannabinol raises a lot of questions about its use, its effects but also in terms of legal status.
In December 2017, after a study of several months on the CBD, the World Health Organization gives its conclusions: the substance seems to have no harmful effect and would not cause a phenomenon of dependence for humans. On the contrary, it could be effective for treating certain diseases such as epilepsy. WHO adds that there is no evidence, based on the results, to ban the substance internationally.
This official declaration thus marks a milestone in the long history of fighting for the legalization of the CBD. Today, many countries including France authorizes the sale of cannabis provided that it contains less than 0.2% of THC. The focus is now on the concentration of CBD, a substance that is not subject to the same restrictions as its psychoactive counterpart.
For several years we have seen the development of weed varieties with a high CBD content as well as a whole range of cannabidiol derivatives, such as oils, e-liquids, ointments and even CBD sweets.
What Are The Effects?
As said before and unlike THC, CBD does not contain a psychoactive principle, provides no addiction and is even therapeutically competent.
So we have the angel on one side (CBD) and the demon on the other side (THC)!
Studies have shown that Cannabidiol contains anti-inflammatory, anti-pshychotic, anti-convulsive properties. It also reduces anxiety and helps against insomnia.
Contrary to what one might think, the CBD is rather a good student!
Medical Benefits of Vaping CBD
Nothing is proven. Even If studies are numerous, no one affirms to date therapeutic virtues. And even less on the molecule of vapourized CBD. We can just say today, out of caution, that effects have been noted.
Pain and inflammation: Cannabidiol has good analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. It would have a special effect to help fight arthritis.
Anxiety and depression: CBD is an effective anxiolytic, which helps regulate mood and avoid depressive phases (Publications: Neuropharmacology review in October 2015 – Journal of the American Society for Experimental NeuroTherapeutics in September 2015 – CNS & review Neurological Disorders in 2014 – a Revista Brasileira of Psiquiatria in June 2012). In particular, it would help to regulate anxiety attacks and panic attacks.
Epilepsy: CBD is effective in some people affected by forms of epilepsy refractory to conventional drugs, especially in children, such as Dravet Syndrome, West, or Lennox-Gastaut. (Publication: Dr. Devinsky published in March 2014 in the journal Epilepsia)
Nausea and vomiting: Cannabidiol has antiemetic properties (Publication: British Journal of Pharmacology – August 2011), especially to fight against nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy (Publication: British Journal of Pharmacology – December 2010)
Intestinal Chronic Inflammatory Diseases (IBD): It is also studied for its efficacy against inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis (Publications: Phytotherapy Research in May 2013 – PLoS ONE magazine in December 2011)
Acne: CBD exerts a sebostatic and anti-inflammatory effect on human sebocytes, making it an effective molecule in the treatment of acne (Publication: Journal of Clinical Investigation in July 2014)
Protection of the liver: It would reduce the effects of fatty liver caused by alcohol consumption (Publication: Free Radical Biology & Medicine newspaper in March 2014)
Antipsychotic: Cannabidiol has important antipsychotic properties, used in particular to fight against schizophrenia (Publications: Journal of Psychiatric Research March 2016. – Schizophrenia Research journal in February 2015 – European Neuropsychopharmacology journal November 2013 – Current Pharmaceutical Design review in June 2012
Neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders: Cannabidiol protects neurons from degeneration, this neuroprotective property being particularly useful for the fight against neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (Publications: review Pharmacological Research in February 2016 – review Phytotherapy Research in October 2008 – review Molecular Pharmacology in February 2011)
Cancer: CBD is one of the cannabinoids that has an action against certain types of cancer, and is therefore the subject of numerous studies for its anti-tumor properties.
Cannabidiol has the advantage of having an anti-angiogenesis action, ie it inhibits the creation of new blood networks necessary for the growth of tumors (Publications: British Journal of Pharmacology in May 2012.
It should be noted, however, that the CBD assays used in these cancer studies are much higher than those achievable with currently available hemp extracts.
