About CBD

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol or CBD is one of 140 cannabinoids occurring in cannabis plant. CBD is a legal and non-psychoactive component, which primarily affects the peripheral nervous and the immune system and does not cause a stoned feeling. But CBD also has some unique effects, which is why we pay special attention to the content of that substance when choosing hemp products. Generally speaking, we can say that CBD helps to restore the balanced action of the endocannabinoid system. Among other things, it has a great impact on brain function (pain perception, movement, emotions and sleep), and also helps with post-exercise regeneration of muscles, improvement of general health (anxiety, depression, psychological instability, nausea, diabetes, inflammation, etc.), prevention of epileptic seizures, alleviation of dermatological problems, elasticity and appearance of the skin, etc. The CBD content in hemp depends on the variety. As a rule, Cannabis indica has a higher CBD content than Cannabis sativa.

The effect of CBD

CBD has no psychoactive effects, so it does not cause a stoned feeling or other side effects which could affect the mental state. CBD may influence some physiological processes, as through the CB1 and CB2 receptors it controls the action of the endocannabinoid system receptors. Also highlighted are possible therapeutic effects, especially antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antiemetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic effects. CBD has a beneficial effect on relieving inflammation, pain, destroying and inhibiting bacterial growth, lowering blood sugar levels, inhibiting cancer cell growth, calming and alleviating psychosis, alleviating anxiety and stress problems, acting on the immune system, relieving intestinal cramps, etc. Due to limited research into the effects of CBD in this field, many more potentials remain unrevealed, but more effects are expected to be defined and studied in the future. In some places, the use of CBD active substance for medical purposes is already widespread, and its effects are being studied; cannabis products giving such effects have been increasingly popular also among those who do not encounter cannabis in medical therapies and research.

CBD is not a Medicine

CBD is sometimes portrayed in various popular texts and other content as a universal solution to all possible physical and psychological problems. In fact, the effects have not been confirmed and such allegations are misleading. The information on our internet sites is for informational purposes only. CBD is not a medicine, Green Passion does not represent it as a cure. We list the possible therapeutic effects and the potential that awaits research and confirmation, but we do not list the medicinal effects and do not recommend hemp products to patients seeking medication.
