How Can CBD Help Me Stay Focused?
That said, let’s quickly discuss some possible ways you can administer CBD for focus.
Sublingual doses of CBD tincture and CBD hemp oil go directly through the tissues under the tongue into the bloodstream. For oral administrations, the substance goes through the long digestive route. So, while the former gives almost instant results, you may wait an hour – or even more, after dosage – before the desired effects kick in.
CBD means Cannabidiol – an extract from the cannabis plant. Although cannabis contains over a hundred other phytocannabinoids (chemicals found in the plant), CBD has gained special attention for its outstanding therapeutic potency and safety profile.
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a "high." According to a report from the World Health Organization, "In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD."
Cannabidiol (CBD) has been recently covered in the media, and you may have even seen it as an add-in booster to your post-workout smoothie or morning coffee. What exactly is CBD? Why is it suddenly so popular?
How is cannabidiol different from marijuana?
CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat. More study in humans is needed in this area to substantiate the claims of CBD proponents about pain control.
Side effects of CBD include nausea, fatigue and irritability. CBD can increase the level in your blood of the blood thinner coumadin, and it can raise levels of certain other medications in your blood by the exact same mechanism that grapefruit juice does. A significant safety concern with CBD is that it is primarily marketed and sold as a supplement, not a medication. Currently, the FDA does not regulate the safety and purity of dietary supplements. So, you cannot know for sure that the product you buy has active ingredients at the dose listed on the label. In addition, the product may contain other (unknown) elements. We also don’t know the most effective therapeutic dose of CBD for any particular medical condition.
CBD is readily obtainable in most parts of the United States, though its exact legal status is in flux. All 50 states have laws legalizing CBD with varying degrees of restriction, and while the federal government still considers CBD in the same class as marijuana, it doesn’t habitually enforce against it. In December 2015, the FDA eased the regulatory requirements to allow researchers to conduct CBD trials. Currently, many people obtain CBD online without a medical cannabis license. The government’s position on CBD is confusing, and depends in part on whether the CBD comes from hemp or marijuana. The legality of CBD is expected to change, as there is currently bipartisan consensus in Congress to make the hemp crop legal which would, for all intents and purposes, make CBD difficult to prohibit.
How CBD could help
What about ADHD?
For someone who has an endocannabinoid deficiency, taking CBD is thought to slow down the neurotransmitter process. Slowing things down might sound counter-intuitive, but giving your brain more time to process things can really help to improve focus and concentration. There is some evidence to suggest that CBD can also help to improve memory, which is particularly vital when you’re studying for exams. Additionally, many people who find study difficult also suffer from anxiety, which in turn contributes to poor studying and poor exam performance. CBD can help with anxiety as it has relaxing and soothing properties.
