Because of this amazing research, many people are looking into CBD for use in treating symptoms of their conditions through the use of medical marijuana. The U.S. government views cannabis and CBD as having similar effects on the human brain as does alcohol, but not in the same way. This allows medical marijuana users to consume CBD with the permission of their doctors. However, CBD cannot legally be sold in stores in the United States yet due to concerns about its legal status.
With more research and a lack of regulations surrounding CBD, more medical marijuana users have found CBD to be an effective way to treat their conditions. The National Institute of Drug Abuse and the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws have both studied the use of CBD for medical purposes and determined that it has no harmful effects on the body. Other studies have found CBD to be very effective in relieving symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis, AIDS, cancer, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s disease. Although CBD cannot currently be sold legally in stores, it can be bought online. You can purchase it in various forms including capsules, creams, and tinctures. Some researchers recommend that you take it along with another natural substance to help maximize the effects, such as Ephedra or another synthetic substance, such as Methylxanthine, which is prescribed by doctors. There are no known negative side effects associated with CBD when taken with another herbal supplement, including green tea.
