CBD oil seems to be the ‘buzz’ at the moment, everyone seems to be trying it! With so many suggested benefits which you can find on the internet, I can see why.
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, and the oil is usually made up from hemp seeds and hemp extract. The hemp seed oil comes from the pressing of the seeds of the plant as the name would suggest, and the extract comes from the leaves and stalks of the plant itself.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the cannabis plant, specifically the hemp strain. With no psychoactive or addictive effects, it is perfectly legal and safe to take. It is believed CBD oil acts on the endocannabinoid system in our bodies, and much of the current buzz surrounding scientific research on CBD focuses on the benefits this non-intoxicating compound can have on our wellbeing.
You may have read that CBD’s status as a food supplement has changed, however, CBD oil is still legal and safe to consume.
It is important when choosing which CBD oil to purchase, that you buy one which comes from EU approved supply, and that it complies with the European standards for THC content, pesticide use, and Heavy metals.
What's The Best Way to Take CBD Oil?
The great thing about CBD oil is that is it suitable for vegetarians and vegans as it comes directly from the plant.
This ensures that the oil is absorbed quickly and effectively into your bloodstream maximising the benefits. If you are new to CBD Oil, it is advisable to start with a low dose and to build up your intake gradually over a few weeks, until you find the dosage that best suits your needs. For best results CBD Oil is taken sublingually (under your tongue).
What Are the Benefits Of CBD Oil?
We have recently been hearing feedback from lots of different people who have tried CBD oil for reasons such as pain relief, in muscle recovery to helping with their anxiety.
Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters .
For example, one study in rats found that CBD injections reduced pain response to surgical incision, while another rat study found that oral CBD treatment significantly reduced sciatic nerve pain and inflammation.*(References below)
We all react differently to nutritional supplements. If you are new to CBD, it’s important to start low and slow with your dosage and build it up slowly over time if needed. If you’re taking any prescribed medication, as with any nutritional supplement please consult your doctor before use.
