The largest study on the effects of the main ingredient in cannabis, THC, has definitely demonstrated that it can cause paranoia in the short term. Oxford-led research has also identified, for the first time, psychological factors that can lead to feelings of paranoia in people who use cannabis. This was highlighted when Oregon requested the recall of 1000-milligram bottles of unflavored CBD Select drops, labeled “Broad Spectrum”. Buyers reported “paranoia”, mental confusion and an “extremely high” feeling, according to the commission, symptoms not generally associated with CBD.Pettinger said the state received its first report of a problem with falls in September.
Because the initial complaint came from Idaho, Pettinger said it took regulators a few days to recover a sample from that bottle and analyze it. That came out “hot”, Pettinger said, and tested positive for high THC levels. So he said that Oregon regulators bought two more bottles and found that they also contained THC.Cases for not taking full-spectrum CBD are things like workplace drug testing or hypersensitivity to THC. For example, strains such as ACDC, Cannatonic and Harlequin are touted for their low THC and CBD content, and practically everything else, such as OG Kush, is said to be high in THC.
It has been previously demonstrated that cannabis strains with high levels of THC and low levels of CBD can cause increased psychiatric effects, such as paranoia, anxiety and addictive behaviors.Currently, the most reported side effect of taking CBD oil is a possible interaction with prescription drugs. Your high depends mainly on your THC and CBD levels, not necessarily on the method you use to consume it, Kinsey says. Buyers reported “paranoia”, mental confusion and an “extremely high” feeling, according to the commission, symptoms not generally associated with CBD.Although paranoia is related to excessive consumption of THC, CBD does not bind to the same receptors or influence the body in the same way as its psychotropic counterpart. The abbreviation “CBD” stands for cannabidiol, one of the dozens of organic compounds found in hemp.
Overall, lighting a joint with more THC and less CBD is much more likely to stress you out, Kinsey says.Researchers at Western University have demonstrated for the first time that the molecular mechanisms that cause cannabidiol (CBD) to block psychiatric side effects caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive chemical substance in cannabis. While different cannabis strains have different levels of THC and CBD, you don't really know how much of each cannabinoid you're consuming no matter what your dispensary says. To put it more clearly, CBD blocked the negative side effects that marijuana's THC usually causes.Based on currently available evidence, paranoia does not appear to be a common side effect of regular use of CBD oil. PhD candidate and Vanier academic Roger Hudson, lead author of the study, says another interesting finding was that CBD alone had no effect on the ERK pathway.In conclusion, it is clear that THC is responsible for causing paranoia in people who use cannabis.
While CBD does not bind to the same receptors or influence the body in the same way as its psychotropic counterpart THC, it is important to note that different cannabis strains have different levels of both cannabinoids. Therefore it is important to be aware of how much THC and CBD you are consuming when using cannabis products.
