Buying cannabis oil in South Africa is possible and part of a healthy lifestyle. Most people ask Cannabis Therapy for cannabidiol (CBD) oil for their medical cannabis needs. We like to discuss the pros and cons of our clients using an extract that is a blend of THC and CBD. We first establish the nature of their condition. We then recommend a cannabis oil that suits their needs.
Everybody Wants CBD When They Need a THC Blend
There is plenty of misunderstanding about how CBD fits into the world of cannabis therapeutics. Myths abound about CBD and THC. Very few people know what the cannabinoids do and why they are good natural remedies. The media makes it worse and legislation tends to only be on the side of CBD. What about THC? Cannabis is a complex plant containing several cannabinoids or chemical compounds. THC is the only cannabioid with psychoactive properties, making the user high. A blend of THC and CBD is a potent therapy and the anti-psychotic CBD mitigates the psychotic effects of the THC. There are no negative side effects.
Who Benefits from CBD?
We know from our experience working with various physicians that there are certain types of patients who can benefit greatly from a CBD oil treatment as an add-on to their medical routine : epileptics; those suffering severe auto immune disorders; multiple sclerosis patients; some Parkinson’s patients; those with bi-polar disorder; and ADD.
Cannabis Oil (CBD) is particularly well suited as an anti-spasmodic and anti-anxiety remedy. It can also work in fighting pain and inflammation, though we find THC more consistently effective in this regard. Interestingly, THC and CBD utilize complementary and different pathways to fight inflammation. In general, CBD would be recommended for patients who cannot tolerate too much THC and respond sufficiently to CBD for their medical condition.
In South Africa, the CBD oil market is set to grow at an estimated compound annual growth rate of 39.19% between 2017 and 2021, and this positive forecast may result in substantial benefits for those jurisdictions that have approved the use of CBD in therapeutic applications, according to an article in Cape Business News.
THC & CBD Treat Cancer
Many inquiries come from cancer patients who think that CBD is the active cancer-fighting component in cannabis. This is true, but THC has also shown huge benefits for cancer patients for many years.Recent research is showing that THC doesn’t act alone. CBD has anti-cancer properties in its own right and works on different pathways than THC. CBD also boosts THC’s effectiveness by mitigating its undesirable effects. This means that doctors can administer higher doses of THC for greater clinical efficacy and safety.
Buy Cannabis Oil Online
It is not possible to legally buy cannabis oil online in South Africa, at the time of writing this article. Some manufacturers circumvent that and offer what they claim to be CBD oil made from industrial hemp. This is legal in some countries. Hemp is low in THC and it is debatable whether it has any significant amount of CBD. Cannabis Therapy strongly cautions against buying any CBD oil online. Choose reputable companies like us.
