What is CBD? | A Brief Introduction

What is CBD?

Here’s a little intro…

Cannabidiol (known better as CBD) is one of over 113 cannabinoids that have been discovered so far in the hemp plant. These cannabinoids aren’t a compound unique to hemp, and can be found within a huge array of other plants and animals, including human beings.

Cannabinoids are named like that because they were first discovered in the cannabis plant. The most famous cannabinoid is THC, which is what causes the negative effects most commonly associated with cannabis.

In fact for CBD to be legal in the UK,  it must have less then 0.5% THC, which is absolutely not enough to get you “high”.

All of our CBD products comply with all UK/EU regulations and are all legal in the UK, you can view all of our lab reports here.

CBD s non-psychoactive (won’t get you high) and is being praised among the holistic/natural medical communities as a healthy alternative for those seeking options for a host of health related conditions, including better sleep, anxiety/stress relief, pain/inflammation support and a lot more.

How CBD Works Within The Body

CBD works in interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which was discovered over 30 years ago and has since impacted the medical world. The discovery of this system has been remarkable for medicine as it is the largest neurotransmitter system in the human body.

The endocannabinoid system contains receptors that regulate the body’s functions such as pain, memory, mood, appetite, bone development, sleep, and immune function. These receptors are activated by natural endocannabinoids produced in the body as well as those found in plants.

Effects of CBD and Its Benefits 

CBD has been found to ease chronic pain and quiet inflammation. Inflammation is now known to be the root cause of many chronic conditions that lead to cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Type 1 Diabetes, and autoimmune diseases. Through research, CBD has shown to be an effective treatment for inflammation, which in turn alleviates the pain and discomfort that result from such chronic conditions.

According to many experts, CBD also possesses the unusual capability to destroy bacteria, even the strains that are known to be drug-resistant. According to one study in 2011, CBD can slow the progression of tuberculosis in rats, concluding that it likely does this by blocking the T-Cell proliferation. 

While CBD has the potential to treat systemic conditions within the body, it also is effective as a topical application on the body. Treating skin problems such as Acne, Eczema, CBD encourages abnormal cell destruction, giving the skin a chance to heal. 

The wide variety of health benefits of CBD makes it a well-liked choice among those seeking natural substitutes for treating health related conditions. If you are interested in learning more about how CBD can benefit your health,
