Is CBD bad for my health?

You intend to buy CBD, but you are still hesitating because you heard, or read somewhere, that it could be dangerous for your health? Together, we will untangle the true from the false.

CBD health and THC!

To answer the question, it is important to understand the difference between CBD and THC. Both substances are present in the hemp plant, along with other phytocannabinoids, as there are about 100 of them.

CBD, which you will also find under the name of cannabidiol, does not generate psychotropic effects, as it is the case with THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). That's why the law prohibits the consumption and sale of products containing more than 0.3 % of THC. By consuming only CBD, you have no risk of addiction, nor of attention disorders. Nevertheless, it is not recommended to drive after consuming CBD, simply because you will be relaxed, and your reflexes can be slowed down.

What can be dangerous for your health is if you combine CBD with tobacco. Indeed, tobacco contains nicotine. Not only can you become addicted to nicotine, but the effects of this molecule with CBD are antagonistic. While CBD allows you to relax, nicotine tends to increase your heart rate. That's why it's advisable to consume the vapor inhalations, if you opt for CBD resin. You can do this with:

  • a dry pipe
  • a bong
  • a dab rig
