The benefits of CBD Oil

The benefits of CBD Oil

It comes from the cannabis plant but CBD doesn't make you high, is totally legal and could improve your well-being.

A few years ago the idea of taking anything cannabis related for your health would have raised serious eyebrows, what a difference lots of research and some campaigning can make. In 2018 the government made certain cannabis based products for medicinal use, legal when prescribed. While shelves of health stores and supermarkets are arching under the weight of everything from CBD infused drinks and capsules to gummies and coffees.

So what is CBD

CBD is one of the active molecules in the cannabis plant called a cannabinoid. It is one of more than 100 other cannabinoids found in the plant including the most famous one THC. that CBD cannot make you high the cannabis high comes from the courtesy of THC and not CBD both THC and CBD work by binding to receptors in a body and sending or disrupting signals related to pain, improves sleep and other regulatory functions. The reason THC has an intoxication effect and CBD doesn't is related to which receptors they bind to.

The Research

Promising research into the benefits of CBD is coming thick and fast but further studies are still needed. There's a lot of evidence to support the basic properties of CBD that are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-seizure and anti-anxiety. There is now clinical evidence that it helps insomnia, depression and fibromyalgia amongst many others.

CBD oil products that you find on sale in the UK cannot make explicit health claims as they are sold as food supplements.

The NHS only allows medical cannabis to be prescribed for children and adults with learning syndrome and dravet syndrome and both severe rare forms of epilepsy in adults with vomiting or nausea caused by chemotherapy and those with muscle stiffness and spasms caused by Ms.

It's a holistic solution.

Many view CBD similarly to other well-established well-being products like cod liver oil for joints.

You may fancy trying CBD but worry about side effects. Some people feel drowsy, or may suffer diarrhea or a dry mouth, but this is quite uncommon and it's generally well tolerated and has no addictive potential.

The food standard agency doesn't recommend CBD for pregnant and breastfeeding women and people taking medication. They advise speaking to a healthcare professional before trying it and say healthy adults should take no more than 70 MG a day


However, this is rarely the case, as every individual responds differently to CBD, and with gradual experimentation it is possible to identify the strength and strain of CBD oil that is most beneficial for your uses.

CBD Oils vary widely in strength, which is usually measured in milligrams (mg) relative to the milliliters (ml) of oil it is suspended in.

Not only do products vary in strength, but also in the strain of the cannabis plant from which it was extracted.

When looking around there are products that have very high concentrations of CBD, but many of them have significant red flags in terms of quality, whether that is the use of pesticides and herbicides in the farming stage, or the use of harsh solvents to extract the CBD from the plant.

One thing many high-concentration CBD oils have in common is that they are imported from overseas, meaning they may not necessarily meet the levels of quality required to be classed as safe food grade products in the United Kingdom.

The CBD Brothers became the first supplement company in the UK to be granted a license to grow full spectrum cannabis for the production of CBD on the nearby island of Guernsey.

At my clinics I personally recommend CBD Brothers for their quality products.

My own experience with CBD oil has been life changing. In recent years I have managed to develop severe anxiety. Now I put a couple of drops under my tongue & within a couple of minutes the anxiety & all the discomfort associated with it has gone!

At my clinics I am able to do energy tests(muscle testing) to find out which strain of CBD oil is right for you.

Quality CBD oils can be expensive. Understanding what strain of CBD that is right for you takes away all the guesswork giving you peace of mind that you're not wasting your money or time.
