🤔 What's the point of smoking Low THC strains?
High-CBD strains tend to deliver very clear-headed, functional effects without the euphoric high associated with high-THC strains. They’re preferred by patients who are sensitive to the side effects of THC. A high-CBD strain would also be a great choice for a patient needing to medicate throughout the day to control pain, inflammation, anxiety, or other chronic conditions.
The Face.... Of someone trying to understand how CBD works! -
People are astonished to hear what CBD does, but when you explain how it works it is only a matter of time before this happens! How long will you last?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is found in the cannabis hemp plant. This natural chemical compound makes up part of the plant. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system in our bodies. This is a network of receptors that create homeostasis in the body, which promotes optimal performance for basic human functions such as sleep regulation, immune system, appetite, inflammatory response, regulation of pain, and brain functions such as mood and memory. At high concentrations, CBD directly activates the 5-HT1A (hydroxytryptamine) serotonin receptor. 5-HT1A is a member of the family of 5-HT receptors, which are activated by the neurotransmitter serotonin. Found in both the central and peripheral nervous systems, 5-HT receptors trigger various intracellular cascades of chemical messages to produce either an excitatory or inhibitory response. In addition, CBD directly interacts with various ion channels to confer a therapeutic effect. CBD, for example, binds to TRPV1 receptors, which also function as ion channels. TRPV1 is known to mediate pain perception, inflammation and body temperature. CBD also exerts an anti-cancer effect by activating PPARs (peroxisome proliferator activated receptors) that are found on the surface of the cell nucleus. CBD also functions as an allosteric receptor modulator, meaning it can either enhance or inhibit how a receptor transmits a signal by changing the shape of the receptor. Had enough? -

Using the Hudson filter at 90% to highlight the deep purple hues in this CBD-prominent strain. Just wanted to show off some flower cuz people usually buy CBD as a concentrate which means they may be missing some of the other cannabinoids in the plant that could be supporting medicinal benefits and relief. ⚘ #cbdplants#itsnotadrugitsaplant#itsnotadrugitsaflower#unintentionalasmr
