CBD and Netherlands have shook hands and promised a pact that would effectively legalise the lifesaving drug…with plenty of restriction in place, nevertheless. The CBD must be from a hemp plant, and at the same time must not have more than 0.2% of the psychoactive substance THC in it. A digit beyond that value and you will on an Uber ride; only this Uber ride has a man of the law in the driving seat and sirens blaring on the roof. Although, CBD that is pulled from marijuana is better rounded in its properties and is more potent, the chances of ever bringing down the 14% THC in it is a far shot; there is no filtration method that can ‘economically’ bring that number down to 0.2%
The route to this ‘treaty’ signed between them took an unreasonably long time. Cities like Amsterdam, are otherwise known for their free-spirited, open minded, youthful culture that is much in tune to the present world trends. To know that CBD wasn’t already legal there came as a surprise to many like me.
By the start of the 21st century, CBD was surfing on the sky high digital wave. Daily show had celebrities and eminent personalities come on the show and ask their thoughts regarding this ‘CBD revolution’ that seemed to have begun. If you casually go through your social media feed, you will bump into one or more influencer promoting a CBD goody.
The world is coming to terms on the multitude of benefits that CBD brings along with it. With the acceptance of CBD came its legalisation, and being legalised means that suppliers and businesses could monetise on it. There are plenty of suppliers that have created unique strains of hemp that will take care of a particular problem more effectively. And the flexibility of CBD to be used in face packs, coffee, milk shakes, vapes, gummy drops and so on, meant that consumers now had plenty of choices to make their mind from. Would you want your daily CBD dose in your coffee, or would you want it in capsules?
Our focus is solely on capsules, and we will be looking into the brands that you can get hold of when in the electrifying city of Amsterdam.
Cannabidiol: Things You Should Know
CBD or cannabidiol, the now recognised miracle drug has many others ‘like’ it. The marijuana or hemp plant from which it is extracted has around 100 of the so called cannabinoids. THC & CBD are both in this group.
CBD however has more prominent benefits and is a much stronger therapeutic substance compared to the other cannabinoids. A sharp pain in your joints or inflammation of the shoulders can all be reduced considerably with the help of CBD. The CBD nulls out the nerve impulses there; this allows for pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects to take place. The CBD also enhances mood and promotes the production of serotonin that allows for a wide smile plastered across your face.
Even if you are suffering from anxiety, that of even severe forms, then CBD can help you relax and be in control. There are numerous researches that have concluded on CBD being an effective medicine against anxiety.
One of the prime benefits of taking CBD compared to other over-the-counter medication is that the latter often gets you drowsy and sleepy. You might have noticed you growing quite drowsy after having paracetamol during a fever or headache. CBD doesn’t quite do that, atleast to not that extent. You will be sharp between the ears and you will not be intoxicated in any way or form. That is because CBD is a strict non-psychoactive substance.
