Breaking the Cannabis Stigma with CBD

Breaking the Cannabis Stigma with CBD

The different strains of cannabis have long been subjected to criticism and unfair stigma because the differences between them are not well understood.

What many people don’t know is that the species of cannabis used for wellness products are specifically bred to contain lower levels of phytochemicals typically associated with recreational and medical cannabis. Fortunately, products like CBD oil are changing the public’s perspective on cannabis in a positive way.

Hemp and Marijuana are Different Plants

Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants. A genus is a way to classify plants with common features, traits, and qualities.

When recreational cannabis is cultivated and grown, farmers look for the cannabis plant to produce more flowers because this is where the highest tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content of the plant is located. This results in a plant with a short and bushy profile.

Industrial hemp, on the other hand, is primarily grown for the use of their fibrous material and seeds. These fibres and seeds are generally found in the plant’s stalk so industrial hemp has been bred to be tall and slender.

CBD Doesn’t Get You High

THC is a psychoactive substance known to produce the euphoric user’s high associated with smoking cannabis. Due to its low THC content, less than 0.2%, industrial hemp plants do not produce any psychoactive side effects. Instead, a hemp-derived CBD user’s sense of calm comes from naturally boosting their endocannabinoid system to promote wellness from within.

CBD is Not Illegal in Most EU Countries

Because CBD and THC are two separate substances, they are regulated differently throughout the EU and the rest of Europe.  CBD is legal in almost every European country — but there are a few exceptions. For example, some countries allow the topical use of CBD, but not sublingual use (under the tongue.) Be sure to check the regulations in your country regarding the use of CBD.

 Although regulations are changing, the European CBD market continues to expand as dozens of new CBD products enter the market every month The highest quality products including Canzon CBD oil are manufactured throughout Europe. Our oil is derived from EU-grown organic hemp and is vegan, cruelty-free, and non-GMO so it is not only kind to your body but also to the environment.

CBD Works With Your Body to Function Naturally

All mammals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is responsible for functions such as mood, appetite, sleep, and stress. Your ECS uses naturally produced cannabinoid compounds to regulate these functions.

CBD is a natural phytocannabinoid that directly interacts with the ECS to augment the way your endocannabinoids function. CBD is a nonpsychoactive neurotransmitter that is specifically constructed to bind to your CB1 and CB2 receptors in your ECS that are located throughout your entire body in the central nervous system, immune system, and skin.

This interaction promotes wellness when applied topically, used as cannabis oil, or vaped. 

Following a workout, you may experience activity-induced stress on the body. The CB1 and CB2 receptors on your skin can quickly absorb Canzon CBD balm or the CBD Recovery Cream allowing for targeted wellness.

Ample Anecdotal Evidence for the Benefits of CBD

The recent change to the legal status of hemp has meant that scientific research and clinical trials are only in the primary stages. Despite promising initial results for a wide range of conditions, CBD products are technically not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

As many CBD products are unregulated, consumers mistrust vendor’s claims about the quality and potency of their products. However, celebrity endorsements on social media and ample anecdotal evidence from veteran users are helping to dispel the stigma around cannabis.

Canzon CBD products are third-party tested for their cannabinoid and terpene profile, the level of THC, and to ensure there are no residual solvents or heavy metals from the manufacturing process to give you peace of mind.

The Takeaway

While cannabis sativa and industrialised hemp are closely related, they are two different plants that interact naturally with your body.

CBD can support overall wellbeing, calm and comfort, especially following intense workouts or higher levels of activity.
