As of September 18, 2018, The Constitutional Court of South has ruled that the consumption of dagga, limited to private personal use, is no longer a criminal offence, (https://www.thesouthafrican.com/dagga-marijuana-legal-south-africa-personal-use/). Forget 4/20, it looks like 9/18 will be a more significant number for South African smokers now.
WHAT IS CBD AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
It’s not a stretch to say that CBD is one of the most exciting and promising compounds currently undergoing rigorous medical and scientific research. CBD is simply short for “cannabidiol”, the second-most abundant cannabinoid molecule produced by the cannabis or hemp plant. The most abundant molecule, of course, being THC: the psychoactive chemical famous for making users feel “high” (CBD does not have this effect). Keep in mind that your body already has an endocannabinoid system, an extremely important molecular system that your body uses to regulate and perform various critical functions. The CBD oil works on two powerful receptors to decrease pain. CB1 and CB2 are the main receptors responsible for controlling anti-inflammatory effects on the body.
