THC or CBD, that is the Question

THC or CBD, that is the Question Did you know that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the two primary ingredients in a cannabis plant? The question is, what are they and what are their specialties? These two cannabinoids are chemical compounds promising innate medicinal value to people with health issues. Many cannabis varieties are popular for their high levels of THC and many people use this cannabinoid to get a high – and to treat conditions like pain, depression and anxiety. But little do people know that CBD is entering the lime light more and more due to its innate medicinal properties and the plus that it is NOT psychoactive, so more agreeable to more people. What are the main differences between THC and CBD? Legalities – most countries have stringent regulations regarding cannabis and THC because this compound makes people high and can be counter-productive and addictive. In the USA, for example, marijuana is illegal because it is classified as a Schedule I drug. A Schedule I drug, as defined by the Drug Enforcement Administration, is a substance that has a high potential of being abused by its users and has no acceptable medical uses. But it turns […]

Is Cannabis Oil Good for Schizophrenia?

Is Cannabis Oil Good For Schizophrenia? Many people wonder whether cannabis oil is good for Schizophrenia. But if you ask someone who is suffering from this mental disorder, you will no doubt get an emphatic nod of the head and a “Yes” as your answer.

Why CBD Oil can Ease Pain

Why CBD Oil Can Ease Pain Studies are starting to reveal why CBD oil can ease pain. Cannabidiol or CBD is a type of cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant and is used mainly for medicinal purposes. The other cannabinoid, THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the one that causes the high feeling and is used for both medical and pleasurable purposes. The point is that CBD can ease pain and bring you great relief from all kinds of bodily aches if used correctly. It has been known to reduce inflammation, the pain caused by arthritis and serious diseases like cancer, physiological pain such as back ache and other illnesses that cause pain. Pain results in lack of sleep and loss of appetite and CBD can fix both of these side-effects. Which Type of CBD Oil Should I Take? Research is emerging that shows how CBD tackles pain. It can assist with sleep so that the patient is able to forget for a few hours their pain and get some rest.

The Benefits of Cannabis Oil for Insomnia

Getting to sleep at night can be difficult for some people. We know that the benefits of cannabis oil include helping you sleep and getting rid of your insomnia. People get insomnia for several reasons and many of these are stress-related in our fast-paced world. Take a mother who has to get up for baby every 2 to 3 hours; or an old woman who needs the bathroom several times a night; or someone who lives alone and jumps at every noise in the house? Then there are the workaholics who cannot sleep as their heads are still full of their work and what their colleagues said and what is happening tomorrow and what happened yesterday and… What does cannabis oil do for insomnia? When you choose a cannabis oil for insomnia, make sure the plant is an indica variety, not a sativa.

Cannabis Oil and Bipolar Disorder

Is there a connection between Cannabis Oil and relief from Bipolar Disorder? It is important to note that there is a connection, yes, between taking cannabis oil and getting relief from bipolar disorder. But there are also contradictions: some studies show that only some patients feel relief from their waves of mania and depression as the cannabis has positive effects on their intellectual or mental states. Other people suffering from bipolar disorder say that the cannabis oil increases their depressive episodes and they feel an even deeper mania than usual. These are the risks involved and it is unfortunate that many sufferers of depression and anxiety tend to seek out the high that THC in cannabis provides. CBD or cannabis oil can help bipolar disorder sufferers. What is Bipolar Disorder? Once known as manic depression, bipolar disorder is an illness of the brain where the person experiences abnormal mood swings, changes in energy levels, and huge degrees of activity and not being able to c0mplete day to day routines and tasks such as even brushing teeth or taking a bath.

Why is Medical Grade Cannabis Oil in South Africa so Expensive?

Why is Medical Grade Cannabis Oil in South Africa so Expensive? Our team at Medical Cannabis oil is often asked why the product is so expensive?
