Cannabis Products on the Rise! Are They Safe?

According to a report, the global sales of CBD products could reach $11 billion by the end of 2027. Many foods, cosmetic, and beverages companies are using CBD as one of their primary ingredients.

However many people are still concerned about the safety when consuming cannabis products.

That’s why it is crucial to understand the truth behind the efficacy and health benefits of these cannabis products that are widely available in the market today.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the most vital chemicals present in cannabis plants. There are many types of cannabis plants from which we can extract CBD including hemp and marijuana plants. While hemp has a low THC content, a marijuana plant on the other hand would have more than 0.3% of THC in it. Although both of these plants contain THC and CBD, the main difference is in the concentration levels of these chemicals.

How effective are CBD products?

CBD has many applications including its therapeutic benefits. However, the negative consequences of CBD drugs are still unknown except for their addictive nature.

Epilepsy

CBD is used in treating epilepsy seizures. Certain CBD drugs are shown to significantly reduce the frequency of seizures in epilepsy patients. However, these drugs should be administered by medical professionals under strict supervision to avoid any harmful consequences.

Chronic pain management

Since chronic pain is connected with your central nervous system, cannabis products can help you relieve chronic pain. Various pain management clinics use CBD products to relieve chronic pain including fibromyalgia, migraines, and nerve pain. It can also help reduce the frequency of emotional and physical symptoms of chronic pain.

The risk of using cannabis products

As stated earlier, one of the risks of using cannabis products in large quantities is developing an addiction. Consuming cannabis products regularly can lead to a reduction in appetite, and cause fatigue, diarrhea, and drowsiness.
