What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a type of oil derived from certain species of cannabis plant, primarily the hemp variety. Unlike its cousin THC, CBD does not have psychoactive properties, and is used instead for a vast range of therapeutic products that are fully legal.
The human brain is naturally equipped with cannabinoid receptors which respond to CBD, which many people have found to have naturally beneficial effects. CBD can be ingested, both in its natural oil form and within edibles, or it can be used externally in beauty and health products.
Benefits of CBD
- Anti-inflammatory: CBD & Hemp Seed Oil are often used for this purpose.
- Anxiety reducer: some evidence to suggest that CBD stimulates serotonin production
- Skin & hair conditioning: the oil helps lock in moisture and soothe dry skin and hair
- Digestion aid: CBD can help calm the stomach and encourage proper digestion
Finding a Reliable Supplier
When you buy CBD UK-wide, it’s important that you use a reliable supplier that you can trust. Only purchase CBD products from reputable sellers who use lab-tested CBD, as this will ensure you get safe, high grade products.
In an increasingly saturated market, be careful to avoid sellers peddling low quality products, and ensure that they work alongside a third party professional lab tester. If you can access it, a lab report will tell you the grade of the CBD, and whether any contaminants are present.
We recommend choosing CBD products which have a lower level of THC, anything below 1mg per 1g as this is the controlled active ingredient in cannabis. Check for any additional ingredients – and ensure there is actually an ingredients list in the first place, to ensure you’re getting a premium pure product.
And finally, do plenty of research and read customer reviews to ensure you’re using a brand you can trust. Impartial, subjective opinions are the best way to know for sure that your money is well spent.
