So, first things first…..
What is CBD?
CBD ( Cannabidiol ) is one of over 100 Cannabinoids that are present in the Cannabis plant.
Before prohibition, Cannabis was used as medicine all over the world for many different health issues.
It is anti-psychoactive meaning it will not cause the ‘high’ feeling associated with Cannabis. (the ‘high’ feeling associated with Cannabis is actually caused by the psychoactive compound THC found in the plant and that effect can actually be balanced out with CBD).
UK law states that products sold in he UK must be below 0.2% THC which wouldn’t be enough to cause a negative effect.
Hemp is cannabis, they are the same plant. However, the cannabis that health food supplements are made from is properly called ‘industrial hemp’ and it is restricted to containing less than 0.2% of tetrahydrocannabinol ‘THC’ (the psychoactive cannabinoid that causes the cannabis high), however, it does contain all the other compounds, in particular cannabidiol ‘CBD’ the other cannabinoid that is increasingly being praised for overall well being and good health.
As we are regulated by the appropriate industry regulatory bodies we are restricted from making medical claims…..
Please research CBD and the benefits it can bring independently.
