Cannabidiol or CBD is a chemical that can be extracted from cannabis plants and is on marijuana. Despite its sensitive nature for a lot of people, recent studies have confidently concluded that using products infused with CBD can cure various disorders or illnesses. Those who had the chance to use it have observed vast benefits such as a reduction in anxiety, lessening epileptic seizures, increased relief of pain, and many more. In addition to its high number of health benefits, it can also significantly help an individual who is in the process of quitting addictive behaviors. These behaviors include cigarette smoking and even other addiction disorders.
Before, CBD oils still contain tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. For those unfamiliar with it, THC is the most active ingredient found in marijuana which is responsible for making its users ‘high’. However, today, CBD products contain minimal amounts of THC – if not, completely free of it. So, users may now rest assured that when taken it right dosage, CBD oils cannot alter their mental state.
Just like in every conceivable product out there, CBD has its disadvantages paired to its overwhelming benefits. Without the proper knowledge or taken without a prescription, CBD can cause some side effects like dry mouth or fatigue. And when the product is abused or taken irregularly, it may cause some liver problems. In some cases, even nausea, discomfort, and severe tiredness.
Benefits of CBD
In addition to the advantages that come with CBD oil above, experts have claimed that it can also help relieve ailments such as type-1 diabetes. Acne, insomnia, depression, cancer, and Alzheimer’s are included in the list as well. And it can do all that without the adverse mind-altering effects that come with the THC chemical that was previously predominant within CBD.
Not only that, the World Health Organization (WHO) has also said that CBD does not produce effects that can be addictive. It is free from the factors that are found commonly in various abused drugs. This makes CBD products safe for use when taken in the right dosages or amounts.
What Does The Bible Say About CBD?
In every sensitive issue or products that lie within the so-called “gray area,” there will always be the question: “Is it okay for Christians to use or practice that?” To be ultimately on point; there is nothing written in the sacred bible that tackles CBD or any of its possible effects and predicaments. This is because its writers would not have encountered them. CBD came to existence in 1963, and we are pretty sure that the writers of the script in the bible have already passed away at that point. However, there is indeed something that can be found there that slightly tackles such – specifically, when we encounter gray areas.
“Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.” (Ephesians 5:18). We could interpret this as God telling us not to avoid any given substance that can necessarily affect our way of thinking or state of mind. If it could impair our sense of judgment and remove our good conscience, we must only practice or consume it moderately. Christians hate nothing more than making spiritually poor decisions. Now we go back to CBD oil. Since it is not yet regulated, some particular vendors might slip in some elements on their products which can directly mess up our judgment calls.
In conclusion, Christians can feel free to use CBD oil as much as they are carefree of in taking alcohol. There is nothing written in the bible that contradicts this. Unless you are abusing such products, there is nothing wrong for Christians to use them. And that is why it is okay, for Christians to use CBD oil.
