Risks of Synthetic CBD
All-Natural CBD is acknowledged around the world as a safe, non-addictive, and non-psychoactive natural approach to stress and pain management, sleep management, and even a medicine for Epilepsy in the United States.  The potential applications of CBD are continually being researched across the world!
However, with the rising popularity of synthetic canabinoids, many governments and shipping services have begun reversing their stance on the natural wonder.
Synthetic cannabinoids are not new but have begun to enter the mainstream market being toted as a safe and legitimate CBD product.
The current research suggests that they may be an association between using synthetic cannabinoids and acute kidney injury.
Many synthetic cannabinoids have a chemical structure that is similar to serotonin, a natural chemical found in the body. It’s been suggested that there’s a risk that synthetic cannabinoids could overstimulate the serotonin system (called serotonin syndrome), which can result in high fever, rapid pulse, sweating, agitation, confusion, convulsions, organ failure, coma and even death.
Synthetic cannabinoids are more likely to be associated with hallucinations than natural cannabis, possibly because of their potency.
Use of synthetic cannabinoids can cause psychotic episodes, which in extreme cases could last for weeks.
Regular use could cause a relapse of mental health illness or increase the risk of developing a mental illness, especially if you have a family history of mental illness.
HHC is a new synthetic cannabinoid taking the internet world by storm.
Easy to order online, consumers often disregard the cardinal rules of purchasing CBD.
- Look for legitimate brands that produce their products based on research!
- Look for any official certificates! (ie. organic registration, manufacturing licenses, etc.)
- Find out the country of origin cultivating your hemp and make sure its grown organically because hemp is so good at absorbing nutrients from the soil it can also contain pesticides!!
- Always look for 3rd party lab results to confirm there are no hidden toxins!
The fact is that HHC is a naturally occuring cannabinoid in the hemp plant.  However, it is found in such small amounts it is often disregarded when talking about the main cannabinoids.
HHC, in its natural form, in small amounts, can help with inflammation and pain but also supports the effects of CBD and the way it is absorbed through the entourage effect.
The synthetic version HHC being advertised throughout the internet is produced in a lab using toxic chemicals.
The HHC products lack research and development and come in concentrations much higher than can be naturally produced.
When CBD is not naturally produced, you have very little control over the information available to you about where the original ingredient CBD comes from.
For example, the CBD used to produce the synthetic HHC can be made from non-organic synthetic CBD.  Since the HHC is also advertised as synthetic and would be ery hard to distinguish the difference.
Most importantly, CBD has finally become affordable because of legalization of medical marijuana around the globe.
Farmers are finally feeling safe about growing natural hemp for CBD without being scared of the government.
The hemp plant itself has an amazing array of uses other than just for CBD.
It can be used to produce fibers for clothes, plastics, bio fuel, and much much more!
Synthetic CBD is still very untested, and the methods to produce them are highly controversial!
Synthetic CBD will only raise the costs of CBD and make growing natural hemp for CBD economically unviable.
It is important to consider the research and development of these new products before testing anything new.
This goes the same for synthetic CBD.
