CBD is well tolerated, even in very large doses while THC, even at very low doses, causes temporary side effects such as: increased heart rate, coordination problems, short-term memory loss, slower reaction time, red eyes & dry mouth. CBD promotes a sense of calmness and ease without distorting cognition or feeling “out of the ordinary”. CBD acts in fact as a regulator of the ECS - a lipid signaling network that help the body & brain communicate with each other to maintain biochemical balance [homeostasis].
It was recently found that brain inflammation is also involved, therefore the anti-inflammatory action of CBD in the brain is very important. Environmental factors like trauma and sustained stress, as well as hereditary genetic predispositions, play a role in anxiety * paranoia development. As a result of malignant cancers, severe depression & anxiety may arise as a common side-effect of chemotherapy and/or the nuclear [ionized] radiation treatments. The conventional treatments with sedatives – benzodiazepine [Valium & Xanax] are involved in substantial levels of risk and severe side-effects - therefore, cannabis-based CBD is a natural & safe anxiolytic agent that can be used for extended durations without any severe side effects. CBD can reduce any anxiety, psychosis or paranoia triggered by high levels of purified THC
