CBD vs. THC
As medicinal cannabis and CBD-based goodies are added to the pharmacopoeia of fun and fruitful medz, we explore some CBD science. ‘CBD lollies = psycho-soothing jollies.’
Known as cannabidiol (CBD) hemp isolate, this extract is becoming used as a food supplement, soporific elixir, de-stressor and tasty tantalizer. It helps with anxiety, chronic pain, migraines, mood disorders and serves as a soothing sedative for late night, post-rave insomnia. CBD is one of several cannabinoids, or chemical compounds, that are found in cannabis and hemp plants. Of course, the dopest cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, which is the main psychoactive catalyst in ganja (aka, the shit that gets you fuckin’ blazed and paranoid – not for us). Because CBD lacks the pupil-enlarging psychotropic pep, it does not create the same buzzy/loony/trippy effects typically associated with weed when ingested or inhaled.
Think of CBD as THC‘s cool straight-edge cousin. But just because CBD won’t get you wildly stoned, it definitely helps reduce angst, PTSD, and daily fidgets; it also induces sleep and mitigates jet lag. Various formulations of CBD can be found in cosmetics, mists, vape fluid, posh chocolates, candy-coated floss and even in ‘sensual lubricant’ which, according to porn pros, will enhance your doinnnnnng.
