Cannabidiol (CBD) is an extract of the Cannabis plant and does not cause a high. It has many potential therapeutic benefits. Most people try using CBD to help with anxiety, chronic pain, seizures and insomnia.
Yes, CBD oil is legal as a prescription medication and is available for purchase through your local pharmacy. You need a prescription for it. In order to obtain this, you can speak with a Cannabis specialist or to your GP.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another extract from the Cannabis plant and is responsible for the high feeling. THC also has many potential health benefits, especially when combined with CBD. THC is mostly used to help with anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and nausea.
CBD is used for a range of health conditions, but most people use it to seek support with chronic pain, anxiety and sleep.
In a recent survey of 2400 users, the top conditions people used CBD for were: anxiety, insomnia, joint pain, depression, muscle tension, migraines and chronic pain. A medicinal cannabis clinic in Auckland has also shared some data and stated that out of 200 patients treated, 60% used CBD for chronic pain. It also found that of it’s users, 72% found benefit in using CBD with more than 50% stating it was of “great” or “excellent” benefit.
There are no conditions for which CBD is approved for, so it's use is on a case by case basis.
CBD works in the body by acting on the endocannabinoid system. The body makes it's own natural cannabinoid compounds and it has receptors (CB1 and CB2) for these chemicals in many organ systems, including the skin and brain. This system is believed to be involved in a range of bodily functions. CBD works by acting on these receptors and causing it's beneficial action.
Both THC and CBD have many potential benefits on the human body through their interaction with the endocannabinoid system. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), CBD is thought to have analgesic (anti-pain), anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective (protects brain cells), anti-psychotic and anti-tumour properties. CBD oil has not undergone extensive clinical trials to prove conclusively it’s benefits as it is a natural product.
With a prescription on hand, you can purchase CBD. Cannicians can help guide you in the process of using CBD. You may purchase Tilray CBD25 and Tilray CBD100 from your pharmacy. Or you can opt to see our doctor to discuss about using CBD oil for your health needs.
