The Medical Benefits of Vaping Hemp Flowers

Medical benefits of CBD
Written by Dr. Leah Zachar

Vaping Hemp flowers both for its medical and recreational benefits, is quickly becoming a popular delivery method.  When vaporized cannabidiol is inhaled, it goes directly into the bloodstream and within minutes starts working in the areas of the body (and brain) that need it most.

There are multiple medical conditions that are particular suited for vaping hemp flowers.  In addressing any issue that needs immediate attention, one should choose to vape hemp flowers.  Some of the most common conditions are anxiety, pain, social phobia, sports injuries, and panic attacks.

Since the benefits of vaping are felt within minutes, the best time for vaping hemp flowers would be right before you anticipate the need.  For instance, since CBD helps you concentrate and focus, it can help tremendously if used before you make a public presentation to fellow employees at your business.  If you suffer with insomnia, then the best time to vape CBD would be right before going to bed.  If you are out with friends and you are trying to quit smoking, when your friends light up their Marlboro’s, the urge you have for nicotine can be suppressed by vaping CBD while your friends stand around inhaling their carcinogens.

Because CBD has no toxic dose and no side effects, if you wish to vape once a day, or find that you need (or want) to vape several times a day, it is safe to do so. CBD has no addictive potential and no withdrawal symptoms, making CBD absolutely safe to use recreationally.

However, the safety issues of CBD do not apply to THC.  In teenagers, THC can cause permanent memory problems, and for those at risk for schizophrenia or psychosis, the THC can result in the manifestation of this mental disorder.  In contrast, CBD can actually protect those at risk for schizophrenia or psychosis. Note: Rest assured that the THC present in plant extracted CBD is less than 0.3% or 0.2%, depending on what country it is from, and this negligible amount only enhances the effects of CBD without any of the detriments or psychoactive activity resulting from THC.

With no tolerance, side effects, toxicity, or withdrawal effects, and with the discovery that one can receive all the many medical and recreational benefits just minutes after vaping CBD, it is manifestly clear why vaping hemp flowers has become so popular.
