The marijuana compound CBD, or cannabinol, is flooding in popularity in the wellness community, for its supposed medical advantages, without the high typically connected with pot. In any case, another investigation proposes that marijuana’s fundamental active ingredient, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) — the one that gives clients a high — might be increasingly in charge of the plant’s remedial impacts.
The researchers analyzed the data from more than 3,000 people who attempted marijuana to relieve medical symptoms. These members had all followed their marijuana use with an application on their cell phones.
The examination found that higher THC levels had strongly connected with reported symptom relief. Conversely, dimensions of CBD had not connected with symptom relief.
Studies also revealed that THC is simply better than CBD in generating healing benefits. The data in these researches has several limitations. These studies lacked a control group that didn’t use cannabis. Given the expanding fame of medical cannabis, the analysts call for more examinations to better guide patients about the measurements, adequacy, and safety of therapeutic marijuana items.
In the U.S, marijuana is illegal so that’s why research on cannabis has been limited. Researchers took advantage of the Releaf application. This application helps people by telling them that which marijuana seems best for their symptoms. The application asks users the level of THC and CBD and also about the strain of marijuana.
Participants allegedly took marijuana for a range of symptoms. These symptoms include sorrow, uneasiness, sleep deprivation, stress, weariness and back pain. The participants reported the seriousness of their symptoms on a scale of 0 to 10. They reported the severity of their symptoms before taking marijuana and within the next 90 minutes after taking marijuana.
On average, members encountered a 3.5 point decline in symptom seriousness on the 11-point scale.
From all the recorded marijuana qualities, THC levels were the most firmly tied to reported symptom relief with positive side effects such as feeling “relaxed” and “peaceful”. But THC levels also had some negative side effects which include “dry mouth” and “feeling foggy”. CBD levels had commonly not connected with reported symptom relief or reactions.
Researchers noted that the CBD levels were not linked with the reported side effects because may be the dose of CBD was very low to show any effect. The other reason is that 90 minutes wasn’t a long time to capture CBD effects.

The CBD hype
The new investigation is “exceptionally fascinating,” said Dr. Donald Abrams, an integrative oncologist at the University of California San Francisco’s Osher Center for Integrative Medicine. He has contemplated marijuana and was not associated with the present investigation.
Dr. Abrams said that everyone is upholding CBD for well being, but that’s a wrong concept. He also added that CBD gets a bit out of proportion to the proof.
But this idea of collecting data by using an application is considered as a good approach to collect a sizeable amount of data. Though this research doesn’t provide the strongest evidence, it can be very helpful to draw further conclusions.
This article concludes that THC and CBD both have positive and negative side effects. But CBD has more hype than it deserves.
Cannabolish, a liquid vapor to absorb and remove bad odor from air
The first ever licensed cannabis restaurant, Lowell’s Original Cannabis Cafe, is a top destination in Los Angeles and to minimize the smoke, they use an air purifier that keeps the odor in and around the restaurant away. Cannabolish is a liquid vapor that is used in the cafe which keeps the smoke away.
Cannabolish addresses scents by using a science-based formula to absorb and remove odors without using toxic ingredients. Because the vapor bonds to the odor molecules, the spray neutralizes scents emitted from the cafe, rather than simply masking them. The owner believes in being good neighbors and uses safe and effective methods to solve cannabis scent concern. Lily Estanislao, General Manager of Lowell Cafe said “We chose a commercial-grade system that utilizes Cannabolish because it completely eliminates odors and is non-toxic for people and pets in the area.”
According to Dr. Laura Haupert, other places that allow smoking use carbon filters, which are less effective, more expensive, and require time-intensive installation and maintenance. She is the Director of Research and Development at OMI Industries, the parent company of Cannabolish. She further commented, “Cannabolish’s patented formula is unique because it completely removes odors and can be used safely both indoors and out. We’re proud to partner with Lowell Cafe to help them provide an enjoyable experience for customers and neighbors.”
Cannabolish is a science based blend that is safe, biodegradable, and eliminates and absorbs cannabis and tobacco odors. Cannabolish’s parent company has nearly 30 years of experience creating products that safely remove odors across a variety of industrial, commercial, and consumer markets. Cannabolish is available in over 1,000 retail locations across the U.S. and Canada, including Amazon, Bed, Bath & Beyond, MedMen, LivWell and London Drugs.
Cannabolish is available for personal use. Sprays and candles can be purchased at Cannabolish.com
Misuse of Marijuana among teens in legal states, Research finds
A new research, conducted by the NYU Grossman School of Medicine and Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health found out that misuse of cannabis among teens and adults doubled after legalization of recreational use of cannabis. The study was conducted in JAMA Psychiatry on both use and abuse of cannabis. Many states have legalized marijuana for recreational and medicinal use.
The researchers found that misuse of cannabis among teens aged 12-17 was 25% higher in comparison to states without legalization of recreational use. Frequent use increased by 23%, while problematic use increased by 37%. There was no difference found in frequent or problematic use among people aged 18-25.
The study’s main author Magdelena Cerda said that there are many benefits of legalizing cannabis use. He suggested “Our findings suggest that as more states move toward legalizing marijuana for recreational use, we also need to think about investing in substance use prevention and treatment to prevent unintended harms—particularly among adolescents.”
Cerda and colleagues analyzed data from the first 4 states to legalize recreational use of marijuana before and after legalization. They compared the results and examined the use and misuse in the past month and over the past year. The respondents were classified by symptoms based DSM-IV criteria.
Silvia S. Martins, Associate Professor of Epidemiology at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, and senior author of this study said that prolonged use of cannabis in early age can lead to long term consequences on health. The researchers also conducted a sensitivity analysis as higher potency cannabis products are available in the illegal market. It was concluded that more research needs to be done. Silvia S. Martins explained “Given our findings on problematic use across age groups, legalization efforts should coincide with prevention and treatment. The general public should be informed about both benefits and potential harms of marijuana products to make informed decisions.”
There were limitations in conducting this study. The first one being that not all the people who use marijuana came forward. The second being frequent use of cannabis and use disorders are only 2 aspects. According to Cerda and colleagues, further research should be conducted to find THC potency in marijuana products and a more comprehensive assessment should be done.
Cerda and Martin’s team of researchers include other highly qualified people Christine Mauro, Ava Hamilton, Natalie S. Levy, Julian Santaella-Tenorio, Deborah Hasin, Melanie M. Wall, and Katherine M. Keyes.
Funding for the study was provided by the National Institute on Drug Abuse grant.
