The government of Ireland has recently legalized cannabis for medicinal purpose, but it also clarified that there’s no further plan to completely legalize the use of the plant for any other purpose. Many Irish people wonder about what needs to expect from this newly approved law, what is cannabis, and how can this be used for therapeutic purposes?
Cannabis or much known as Marijuana is a type of plant that belongs to Cannabis Sativa Plants. In the past, it has been viewed with negative associations due to its psychoactive component that makes the user high. A Marijuana plant has hundreds of active cannabidiol oil components, but two main compounds stand out from the list, and that is the CBD and THC.
To simplify, (THC) Tetrahydrocannabinol is the compound responsible for the euphoric state that user experiences after consuming the plant, while (CBD) Cannabidiol acts as the good guy for delivering the intense relaxation experience.
To eliminate its psychoactive component the plant has to go through a process to extract and separate the good component to produce various types of products for medicinal purpose such as CBD oil. In The US, CBD oil had recently reported as a billion-dollar business after its government has signed the farm bill law in late 2018, which freed the hemp plant from its ceased of more than 80 years. A hemp plant is another type of plant to where marijuana also belongs, many refer to it as the cousin of marijuana because of their identical look, except for their color.
The main difference between these two is the amount of THC to which hemp plant only carries 0.3% or less of the psychoactive component, making this the best source for producing a CBD oil in Ireland.
Although many research still needs to be done to prove its effectiveness in the therapeutic field, many had already testified that it had helped alleviate different types of pain and illness.
