Four things to know before smoking CBDMolly Roe
It will not result in a “high” feeling
Hemp, or CBD pre-rolls, are made with CBD flower instead of recreational or medicinal marijuana that contains high levels of THC.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most abundant compound in the plant, and is probably the most well-known; however, cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most abundant compound found in cannabis, and does not have the psychoactive effects of THC–this means it does not give users a “high” feeling.
You might experience pain relief
CBD has been shown to help those suffering from inflammation. Chronic inflammation typically leads to stiff, achy joints and pain. A recent study by the Journal of Experimental Medicine has shown that CBD can reduce some inflammation and the pain that comes along with it.
You may feel relaxed and calm
CBD has been proven to calm the mind, due to its interaction with GABA receptors in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate peace and calm in the brain and body. Because of this, CBD may be used to promote calm and relaxation in the body – however, you should always consult your doctor before changing your current medications.
You may feel more creative and inspired
Using CBD may help you overcome some of the biggest obstacles to creativity, such as stress, anxiety and depression. Because of its positive effects on your mood and sleep schedule, you’ll may feel more calm and have more time to dedicate to hobbies such as writing, crafting, drawing, etc.
