In recent years, CBD has become immensely popular. The active component comes from cannabis and is also known as cannabidiol. Although it was discovered as early as 1940, knowledge of its uses has spread to the general public only recently.
With more and more countries and states legalizing (medical) marijuana, more research is being done on its beneficial effects on our health and well-being. There is some good evidence that cannabidiol can be useful in treating epilepsy and other seizure disorders. Although more research on other effects needs to be done, many people also use CBD for general relaxation, to counteract aches and pains. It could also be beneficial for skin health when applied topically.
Grow your own strain for CBD oil
If you would like to experience the benefits of CBD for yourself, you could of course buy some CBD oil, tea or capsules. They are generally quite pricey though, and since the production is not well-regulated, the quality can vary greatly. Furthermore, tests have shown that some CBD products also contain a considerable amount of the component THC, which is responsible for the 'high' that cannabis is known for.
Although some may welcome this effect, others may want to keep a clear head during their daily activities, while still benefiting from the mildly relaxing effect of CBD. In this case, it can be worthwhile to grow your own cannabis for this purpose. The cannabidiol/THC ratio can vary greatly per plant. That is why we have made a top 5 of the cannabis strains that are most suitable for making your own CBD oil.
