Fully regulated and using only the most reputable CBD brands, you won’t find a more reliable or trusted collection of CBD products than those stocked here.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is one of over 100 cannabinoids found within the cannabis sativa plant. It is a completely natural component that has been proven to offer a plethora of health benefits, and, on its own, it is completely non-psychoactive, meaning it will not cause a “high”.
Here in the UK, CBD which has been derived from EU-approved industrial hemp is completely legal as long as it does not contain any more than trace amounts (more than 0.2%) of THC. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the active compound in cannabis responsible for the feeling of being “high” and is a controlled substance which falls under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
CBD has become so popular thanks to its therapeutic potential with very minimal reported risks, with many relying on the cannabinoid for its calming effects. Although CBD is often touted as a ‘cure-all’, there is still much more research needed, however it is clear that the cannabinoid does wield huge potential for the treatment of a variety of conditions. To learn more, take a look at our CBD guide.
What is CBD good for?
New research is being done every day into the potential of CBD, but we already know that the cannabinoid boasts a wide range of benefits which make it a great option for people both young and old. Perhaps the biggest selling point to CBD is that it is an all-natural product, and unlike many prescription medications, has limited risks and side-effects. But what are the supposed medicinal benefits of CBD? Here are a few conditions that CBD has been shown to treat:
There are dozens of pain relief options out there, but CBD is a much more natural alternative to most that has proven ability to relieve chronic pain symptoms. A study done in 2018 showed that CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties made it a potent pain relief medication, whilst a study done in 2019 showed that CBD applied topically had the same potential to reduce inflammation and thus relieve pain and irritation in certain skin conditions.
It is pretty well known that cannabis, specifically THC, can have a negative impact on mental health. This is even more so in those who already struggle with anxiety where THC has only worked to amplify those negative feelings. However, CBD has been proven in both animal studies and human studies to show great potential for treating anxiety. As such, CBD has gone on to treat cases of general anxiety, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and an array of symptoms associated with these conditions such as insomnia.
In 2018, the first FDA approved drug to contain CBD came to market in the form of Epidiolex. This purified CBD has been made legal to prescribe to children suffering from specific types of child epilepsy, namely, Lannox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome.
CBD has been proven to significantly reduce the quantity of seizures experienced in these particular types of epilepsy, where other more traditional medications has struggled to control the condition.
The list of conditions where CBD has shown promise as a treatment is pretty exhaustive, and includes:
- Parkinson’s disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
To name but a few. However, it is important to note that anyone considering starting CBD should first consult their doctor or a medical professional and none of the information provided here should be taken as medical advice.
