What is CBD oil used for?
CBD oil is known as a multifaceted wellness product. It can be used to help relieve anxiety thanks to its soothing effect on the brain, and it may also help reduce the effects that stress can have on the body by calming an increased heart rate. Trouble sleeping? A few CBD drops can also help bring about that feeling of serenity you need to get a good night’s rest, so you can say good riddance to insomnia.
It doesn’t end there. Along with its numerous relaxing properties, CBD oil can be used to help treat serious medical conditions. For instance, current research into CBD has shown its potential to reduce seizures in people with epilepsy, while other scientific studies are investigating its potential as a neuroprotective to be used for disorders like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis (MS).
CBD oil might be best known for its anti-inflammatory power. At a clinical level, CBD oil is shown to have a relieving effect on the brain’s receptors to reduce pain, to help manage symptoms of arthritis, chronic pain, and even the side effects of chemotherapy treatments. More generally, CBD oil’s effect on the immune system can help relieve inflammation in the body. It is considered that the anti-inflammatory essence of CBD oil can also be used to help improve your complexion by wiping out acne. Your skin will be soothed and glowing.
How do you take CBD oil?
Depending on the formula, CBD oil can be taken orally, in oil or capsule form, or applied topically to the skin. Apply a few CBD drops under the tongue and allow it a few moments to absorb to feel the benefits more quickly. For aches and pains, massage several drops of CBD oil into the affected area. If you like, CBD oil can be combined with lotions or creams, but we think our cannabidiol oils shine best when used on their own. Go ahead, call us purists – we take it as a compliment.
Is CBD oil legal in the UK and Europe?
CBD oil is legal in the United Kingdom and Europe, but no matter where you are, you must respect the legal limits in place to regulate the amount of THC in cannabis products. Moreover, as we learn more about the vast health benefits of CBD, regulations are often changing. In the UK, CBD oil is legal so long as it contains less than 0.2% THC, and the cannabis plants used in the extraction process need to be approved.
EU regulation considers CBD oil to be a ‘novel food’, but each country within the EU has different laws around CBD drops use and sale. For most European countries, we can make the broad generalisation that CBD oil is legal, but with some caveats depending on the state. That’s why, wherever you are in the world, it’s important to check the laws local to you before you buy CBD oil.
Is CBD oil safe?
It’s always important to consider what you’re putting into your body. As with any wellness supplement, it is a good idea to consult with a doctor before you start using CBD extract to determine what the best dosage is for your needs. And, as any doctor would tell you, children and people who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not consume CBD oil.
If you’re new to the world of CBD, we recommend starting with a low dosage and working your way up. Take it slow; you’ve got plenty of time.
What forms of CBD oil are available?
Generally, CBD oil comes in three forms: CBD isolate, full-spectrum oil, and broad-spectrum oil.
CBD isolate is pure cannabidiol, and can be added to carrier oils like coconut or MCT oil for a CBD product with the lowest possible concentration of THC. However, by that same token, CBD isolate lacks some of the other cannabinoids that make up the therapeutic powers of hemp, like CBG, and its extraction process also removes those tasty terpenes that give cannabis products their natural aroma and, indeed, some of their curative magic.
Full and broad-spectrum CBD oils are, in our opinion, a more wholesome alternative. These CBD extracts retain the other compounds that help make hemp a well-rounded herbal remedy. Broad-spectrum oils are a balanced CBD solution, with only trace amounts of THC, plenty of cannabidiol, natural terpenes, and all the other organic compounds that the best CBD oil is known for.
We favour an outdoor growing method to ensure that our CBD oil is the pinnacle of natural herbal excellence. All our oils are broad-spectrum oils, respecting EU laws, but derived from full-spectrum distillation to still leverage the benefits of wholesome terpenes. Our oils are extracted from sun-grown cannabis cultivated in the great outdoors, taking in all that nature has to offer while still being 100% pesticide-free.
