A Beginner's Guide to CBD and THC

Wazzup Pilipinas!

They're the acronyms on every marijuana advocate's lips right now, but what exactly are CBD and THC? This quick beginner's guide will cover the history, structure, and properties of these powerful compounds.

THC is the substance that's been synonymous with marijuana for decades, having been discovered in Raphael Mechoulam's Israeli lab back in 1964. The laid back 1960s hippie Beatles era was when cannabis made its cultural mark, and people started paying attention to the banned plant. When the THC was identified, the simplistic link was made that THC was responsible for all of marijuana's effects – it wasn't until much later that we began to understand the plant's complexity.

However, prior to 1964, scientists studying marijuana couldn't even isolate its compounds, or learn about and manipulate its chemical structure. They were aware of other compounds, known as cannabinoids, but none was as interesting or game-changing as psychoactive THC.

Nowadays, we are aware that cannabis is made up of many important cannabinoids, not just THC. The other effective compound found in marijuana is called CBD and is often used for medical marijuana purposes. The composition of CBD is similar to THC, with just a slight variation in how the atoms in the structure are arranged. The key difference between THC and CBD is in its effects, though – unlike THC, CBD isn't psychoactive, and therefore users of Koi CBD Vape Juice and other CBDistillery products don't get high when medicating.

Scientists have known about CBD for much longer than THC but have only recently realized the compound's extraordinary power and potential medical uses. The cannabinoid's anti-inflammatory and anxiolytic properties help manage several ailments, including chronic pain, muscle pain, sleeping difficulties, and anxiety. In many US states, CBD has been prescribed as a medical marijuana treatment for rare seizures in children.

Furthermore, CBD negates much of THC's psychoactive effects. When the two are intertwined, such as in full-spectrum medication or old-fashioned cannabis joint, you don't feel as high as you would if you were, say, smoking a pure THC strain. This is awesome for medical users, although recreational users may not be so pleased about the THC! CBDfx has also been prescribed to chemotherapy patients to help deal with symptoms like nausea.

The cannabis plant does consist of other cannabinoids, around one hundred, but none are as important or well understood as CBD and THC. They don't give weed its smell though – that's the job of the terpenes. Hash products typically used by recreational users are much higher in THC than regular strains of marijuana.

Surging interest in the medical industry has led to growers breeding special strains of marijuana that are very potent in CBD, yet contain negligible THC levels. It's the consumer who benefits from legalization, which has allowed the market to progress and for companies to develop marijuana and marijuana-derived products that better suit their customers' needs.

Bench Knows How to Exploit Their Employees in a Subtle Way

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Bench is in trouble for these series of resilience stories featuring their own employees.

The company tried to honor them but something is more wrong with taking advantage of people's plight without helping them get some form of making their situation better.

How about providing them with transportation service, or bikes, or allowance for Grab rides.

There’s a special place in hell for businesses that glorify their underpaid employees’ plight for “content”. Sana naman bigyan ng TF sila Francis, Richelle, at Benlyn dahil sa backlash.

Ano kaya target nung ads na yan? HAHAHA to salute the harworking employees or to expose the employer?

Super major cringe sa caption grabe.
PR gone wrong! Yung akala nila beh makaka inspire sila. Wrong move.

The least BENCH Management can do is to give motorbike for employees who have loyally served them. They deserve it. Recognize but Incentivize! Thats true compassion for your people being the greatest asset in your organization.

Baka ending ng serye, i-save sila ni Capt. Ri, their latest endorser.

What they showed the public is that working for Bench is not safe. They even might bring  with them the virus and they will not be effective and efficient in work cause physically they are exhausted and mentally tired.

They think employee recognition will boost other's morale and do the same.... nakakatipid sila "using people" to work hard. Tawag dyan...exploitation in a subtle manner.

THEY CLEARLY DON'T SEE THE MISTAKE THEY JUST MADE. Haaays how many years of service yet they can't provide better benefits like a service car to their backbone employees??? Lol
