Cannabidiol effects mostly fall into two categories: the immediate and the long term. Either of these can be good or bad.
Either way, the good almost always outweighs the bad – especially when there are little or no traces of THC. In fact, the line between negative and positive usually depends on the amount of CBD vs. THC.
THC is the compound – or cannabinoid – that is responsible for the ‘high’ feeling. It is the root of the plant’s notoriety around the world.
CBD, on the other hand, has been linked to cannabis’s potential healing abilities. Unlike THC, it has no psychoactive effect. It may even combat THC’s adverse effects like paranoia, memory loss, and sedation. These are symptoms that are also common with abuse of alcohol and other drugs.
Some research, however, has suggested that CBD, THC, and other elements in the cannabis plant work better together. This is termed’ the entourage effect‘ and means that a CBD product that is 100% free of THC is less effective than one that has some traces of THC.
It is a struggle to balance the psychoactive effect of THC, its role in the wider medical system, and the legal demands. These varied aspects have made THC a very challenging part of cannabis to deal with.
Possible immediate cannabidiol effects
Some of the immediate effects after taking CBD medication include:
- Sense of calm and relaxation. In most cases, these will come back as soon as the CBD is out of your system.
- Dealing with inflammations from such conditions as rheumatoid arthritis and MS.
- Drowsy or sleepy feeling.
