Clinical trials suggest that if one accidentally consume too much THC and feel anxious or paranoid, it can be counteracted by taking some CBD. However many marijuana smokers wonder how far this can be true. The answer for many people is yes, it can, but with the investigators suggest that there are many factors that can impact how one responds to anxiety and CBD such as the type of CBD product used, unique biology and genetics and the intensity and nature of anxiety. However, mechanical truths about CBD that might have been revealed to help understand why it tends to alleviate anxiety induced by either THC or other external stressors
What Relationship Exist Between CBD and THC
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is an excellent anxiety-fighting compound. This compound occurs in trace amounts in most varieties of marijuana, but recent years have seen a development of high CBD stains and infused products such as edibles. CBD is not psychoactive like THC when isolated from its THC counterpart; it does not produce the obvious euphoria or what is commonly known as the high.
Although THC and CBD are two distinctive compounds, they work together in interesting ways. For example, research on CBD has revealed that this compound enhances THCs painkilling properties to while diminishing the paranoia it can caus. Martin A. Lee in his book ‘Smoke Signal’’ equally revealed that CBD interacts with THC in complex ways, diminishing certain effects such as the munchies, sleepiness, the high while augmenting others and that Cannabidiol balances the buzz and softens the euphoria or, in some cases, the dysphoria–induced by THC, which, in concentrated form, can make people feel very loopy and weird. He then asserted that CBD is the yin of THC’s yang.
How does CBD and its anti-anxiety mechanisms work
An organization dedicated to the dissemination of CBD information known as Project CBD, compared CBD to a ‘dimmer switch’’ as they revealed that it has a way of calming excess signaling and activity in the brain’s endocannabinoid system. Some conditions and diseases are usually characterized by underactive or overactive endocannabinoid systems such as PTSD brains, for example which are known to produce insufficient levels of anandamide, a natural endocannabinoid that is structurally similar to THC. As such I introducing underwhelmed receptor sites with cannabinoids that act like endocannabinoids will help correct the deficiency and result in a therapeutic effect in patients. CBD modulates the receptor signaling associated with THC, thus explaining why their co-presence has become so important in the field of marijuana therapeutics. It is also very important to outline CBD’s ability to modulate excess cannabinoid activity in the brain, which can result in anxiety. In this way, CBD can certainly mitigate the negative anxious, paranoid side effects associated the overconsumption of THC.
Although research on CBD and testimonies from its numerous consumers has demonstrated a high safety margin, it is advisable to always take care when medicating with any of these products. Seek advice from your doctor if you decide to use CBD and consult with medical professionals educated in therapeutic marijuana applications, especially if you’re using CBD in conjunction with other conventional medication
