CBD Oil or THC Oil? Which One for Which Need?
Did you know that Constance Pure Botanical Extracts was not only among the first in the world to grow CBD-rich cannabis but was also the first company in northern California (and possibly the world) to make CBD oil? Most of our queries come from people who are looking for CBD oil. Once we learn more about their conditions, however, we usually discuss this with their physician and propose an extract that is primarily THC oil, with a little added CBD.
There is a lot of misconception about CBD’s place in cannabis therapeutics. Heightened media coverage, and state legislators who respond to demand with CBD-only laws, has caused some pervasive myths. One of these compares the sole medical value of cannabis with CBD.
Who can benefit from CBD?
From our experience in working with various physicians, there are some patients who can benefit greatly from a CBD oil treatment – as an addition to their regular medical treatment. This includes patients with bi-polar disorder, epileptics, multiple sclerosis patients,some Parkinson’s patients, some patients with severe auto immune disorders and people with ADD. CBD is particularly well suited as an anti-spasmodic and anti-anxiety remedy. CBD oil can also help fight pain and inflammation – though we find THC to be more effective in this regard. Interestingly enough, CBD and THC use complementary and different ways to fight inflammation. Generally, CBD would be suggested for patients who cannot tolerate too much THC and respond well to CBD as a treatment for their condition.
THC and CBD Synergy in Cancer Treatment
Many queries come from cancer patients who think that CBD is the active cancer-fighting component in cannabis – another myth. THC is the go-to compound for fighting cancer, and has been for many years. However, recent studies show that THC does not act unaccompanied. CBD, while having anti-cancer properties and working in different ways than THC, boosts THC’s power by mitigating its unwanted effects (such s getting high). This allows for higher doses of THC to be consumed for greater clinical safety and efficacy.
Can I Purchase Cannabis Oil Online?
Presently, it is not possible to legally buy cannabis oil online. Some manufacturers evade this by offering CBD oil that is made from industrial hemp, which is legal in certain countries. Hemp is low in THC and it is undecided whether it has a noteworthy amount of CBD as well. Additionally, a recent report has been released concerning consumers becoming seriously ill due to contaminated hemp oil products – a risk that runs high in the production of commercial hemp. We strongly warn against buying CBD oil online as it could possibly be unsafe and of inferior quality.
