What is CBD?
In this podcast, Marion will discover CBD and its benefits. Coming from hemp, CBD is decried in France and is often linked to THC. CBD is in fact the abbreviation of cannabidiol. It is a molecule that is part of the cannabinoids found in cannabis. The other molecule (the most known) of the cannabis is the THC (for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), but contrary to this last one the CBD does not have a narcotic effect.
The consumption of CBD itself is not prohibited, but hemp, the plant that gives CBD, is regulated. The consumption of THC is prohibited.
Cannabiol, THC, cannabis, what are the differences? What are the effects on the body? What are the effects on mental health? It is said that CBD can relieve menstrual pain? Are there cases where the use of CBD may be inadvisable (illness, pregnancy ...)? Is CBD addictive? How to consume CBD?
Cannabis is a plant that has been used for many years, especially to relieve certain pains. Cannabis is a well known plant that has many benefits, especially in case of severe pain related to menstruation or gynecological conditions. But it can also be very useful for stress and anxiety in general, or to improve one's well-being in general, for example for sleep.
Frederic Gié, co-founder of the French CBD brand, Arpa, shares with us today his expertise on the benefits of CBD on the body and personal balance.
There are few cases in which CBD is not recommended, however during pregnancy or breastfeeding, taking CBD is not recommended as a precautionary measure, even if the risks are low.
If you suffer from menstrual pain, or pain related to endometriosis, adenomyosis, or other inflammatory diseases, CBD can help relieve pain by promoting relaxation.
You have to be careful with the CBD you choose. Indeed, especially for inflammatory pain, you must turn to natural products, the most complete, the closest to the form of the original plant. These are the most effective products. You should not hesitate to discuss and exchange with the brand. Beyond the cost of these products, they directly affect your health. It is important to be well informed about the manufacturing method.
