Benefits of CBD

CBD is a Pleiotropic compound (produces many effects through molecular pathways). CBD (CannaBiDiol) is extracted from an organic plant known as Hemp, part of the cannabis family. It is a type of cannabinoid that links up with the Endocannabinoid system – a system that you naturally have within your body.
Experts believe CBD works in three primary ways.
Through the endocannabinoid system – The first is through the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is composed of:
Receptors – There are CB1, found in the Central Nervous System (CNS) and CB2 receptors, found in the peripheral nervous system in the ECS. They exist throughout the body and are the compounds to which endocannabinoids (like CBD) bind.
Enzymes – The enzymes appear in many forms. However, only two types of enzymes in the ECS can break down CBD and other endocannabinoids.
Endocannabinoids – These are the compounds that keep the internal functions of the body running smoothly. All mammals produce endocannabinoids. By taking CBD, you supplement and enhance the functions.
Through non-cannabinoid receptors Serotonin receptors – At high concentrations, CBD activates specific serotonin receptors to confer its calming and relaxing effects.
Vanilloid receptors – CBD also interacts with the TRPV1 receptors, which also act as ion channels. These receptors help to mediate pain perception, body temperature and inflammation. By binding to the TRPV1 receptor, CBD is believed to influence pain perception.
Orphan receptors – CBD blocks or deactivates receptor called the GPR55 receptor, which is also called the orphan receptor. It’s found in the cerebellum and modulates bone density, blood pressure and other physiological processes. An overactive GPR55 receptor is often associated with conditions like osteoporosis. By blocking or deactivating this receptor, CBD can confer various benefits.
In recent times, the laws governing CBD have changed, making it more accessible to the public. CBD oil is legal in the UK as long as it has a THC content of less than 0.2%. These favourable laws have fuelled the popularity of CBD.
CBD is also legal to purchase and use in the European Union. However, it’s important to be aware that airport authorities and other travel authorities may mistake CBD oil for illegal cannabis. If you’re carrying CBD products with you while you travel, make sure they’re inside the original packaging that states they are CBD-based products.
Please be aware that many other countries still ban CBD oil, with some placing strict penalties on the possession of CBD and other cannabis products. If you’re travelling outside the UK or European Union, we URGE YOU TO CHECK the local laws for your destination before you travel with any CBD products.
CBD has attracted the attention of scientists and researchers who have conducted studies that look into the benefits of CBD. Most of the studies have confirmed the benefits of CBD. With that, there has been a growing interest among CBD users even as further studies into the compound continue being conducted.
Most of the concluded studies have shown that CBD is effective in pain management in relaxation and can also help manage symptoms of various chronic conditions.
Muscle pain and recovery
Stress, Anxiety and Depression
and much more…
The application of CBD depends on the type of product that your use:
Oils – Take sublingually – use the dropper to place small drops of oil under your tongue. This method allows our CBD oils to quickly enter into your bloodstream and give you the maximum and most efficient effect.
Topicals – Apply our topical products directly to the skin, allowing them to absorb (‘sink-in’) to gain maximum effect. Topical products can be applied directly to targeted areas of the skin to help reduce muscle pain and inflammation.
Vapes – Our e-liquids are ready to use in a large variety of e-cigarettes (known as vapes). Simply fill up your vape and use as your would normally.
Edibles – Simply eat by chewing and swallowing. Always read the label and do not exceed the daily recommended dose.
CBD is widely considered to be safe for most people and is well tolerated. However, some users experience side effects and have reported mild cases of
- dry mouth
- reduced appetite
CBD can react with other medication that you may be taking (such as blood thinners). We recommend that you speak to your doctor before taking CBD.
No. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid that makes you high; CBD does not have any psychoactive properties. While many CBD oils, particularly full-spectrum products, contain trace amounts of THC, it is not enough to make you high. If you are at a risk for random drug tests, for example through your job or as an athlete, you may wish to choose a CBD oil that is entirely devoid of THC.
