On this occasion from 420 links we will explain why the CBD is psychoactive, although popularly, it is not usually classified as such. Perhaps the result of ignorance or perhaps because of the bad reputation that psychoactive substances arouse in society. Therefore, since the re-discovery of the CBD has always been expressed that this is not psychoactive.
What is psychoactivity?
It is considered psychoactive substances that when introduced by any route - oral, nasal ... - exerts a direct effect on the central nervous system, which is composed of the brain and spinal cord. Getting to cause certain specific changes in their functions. Among other uses these substances are able to inhibit pain or modify the mood. Furthermore, these substances are the only solution to combat the alterations of the central nervous system caused by the main neurodegenerative diseases. Such as multiple sclerosis, ALS or Parkinson's.
Why is CBD psychoactive?
Many scientific studies confirm that CBD is a great ally to combat neurodegenerative diseases.
This is thanks to its psychoactivity, since this is responsible for reestablishing a minimum order in the central nervous system, which is attacked by these diseases. As an example we can put Parkinson's patients, who get a great improvement by consuming CBD, greatly reducing
the tremors. Fact that would not occur in the case that the CBD was not psychoactive.
Another clear example would be children suffering from refractory infantile epilepsy - neurological disease - which reduce, to a large extent, the number of attacks after the first doses of CBD.
It should also be noted that the psychoactivity of CBD does not act in the same way that THC does. Although the use of both together, potentiates the efficacy of these cannabinoids against a large number of neurodegenerative diseases. This interaction is known as the entourage effect. Hence, experts in the field, always recommend the use of both cannabinoids, modifying the ratio between one and another depending on the ailment to be treated.
With these data and knowing that neurodegenerative diseases can only be effectively treated with psychoactive substances. And that these diseases are controlled with CBD-fact based on scientific studies-we can conclude that CBD is psychoactive. I Vaporize!
