Will Louisiana’s Medical Marijuana Get You High?
I think this question is in the back of everyone's mind here in SWLA. Will Louisiana's medical marijuana get me high?
Let's start off with this amazing plant and then dive into what the program will be primarily using in their products.
Cannabis is a very complex plant that produces more than 400 different chemical compounds. There are different types of cannabinoids, around 60 plus, in a marijuana plant. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, aka THC, is the one that gets you high. Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is the medicinal oil of the plant that doesn't make you high.
How Does CBD Work?
Look, I'm no Mr. Wizard, but you could say that humans are “hard-wired” for cannabis. The endocannabinoid system runs deep and touches all of the major systems of the body. And that’s why cannabis can do so many things for us, from altering and regulating moods to stimulating appetites and reducing pain.
What Are The Benefits Of CBD:
First of all let me say that these next statements haven't been evaluated by FDA findings or reports. Cannabidiol has been shown in independent research to have amazing medicinal qualities. According to this research, below are some of the medical benefits of CBD:
- CBD Can Stop Epileptic Seizures
- CBD Can Treat Serious Neurological Diseases Like Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s
- CBD Can Relieve Pain
- CBD Can Fight Cancer
- CBD Can Treat Mood Disorders
- And Many More
CBD has also been shown in these independent studies to be a powerful anti-inflammatory medicine as well.
So long story short, Louisiana's Medical Marijuana products will be engineered to have high levels of CBD and very low levels of THC.
So people aren't going to get "baked" on this program. Sorry to burst some bubbles out there, lol. But all kidding aside, CBD in my opinion is going to flip the medical game on it's head.
I can't wait to see people get released from the bondage of pain pills and so many other amazing life changing moments that CBD can bring to SWLA!
