At CBD UK, people often ask us "what is CBD".
Cannabidiol (more commonly known as CBD) is derived from the Cannabis plant and comes with an abundance of health benefits and is widely accepted to improve your overall well-being.
The cannabis plant contains more than 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids, which interact with the body's "Endocannabinoid System" which then creates what is known as “Homeostasis” where the body becomes completely balanced and in tune and the body works better.
Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t cause psychoactive effects, and is therefore attractive to those who want to feel all the amazing benefits of CBD and avoid the high associated with THC.
CBD in the UK is completely legal and comes in many forms:
CBD also comes in various processed forms but the main 2 are "isolate CBD" and "Full Spectrum CBD".
Isolate is CBD in its refined state and contains only CBD (no other chemical compounds). In the UK, this is only allowed in Vape and CBD Creams/Balms.
Full Spectrum CBD is CBD in a more natural "untouched" state and contains all the other amazing compounds from the hemp plant. Things like the terpenes and other Cannabinoids (CBDA, CBGA, CBCA and CBGA).
Terpenes (and terpenoids) are aromatic organic compounds found in many plants. When combined with CBD they can create what is known as "the Entourage Effect". This is widely accepted as creating an overall improvement in well-being. Terpenes, or terpenoids also form the basis of aromatherapy, the popular holistic healing modality.
As UK CBD OIL is classed as a "food supplement" and not a medicine, UK sellers aren't allowed to prescribe it as a medicine (unlike America and may other countries where it has been widely accepted as having medicinal properties and is used to treat many ailments by doctors. Sellers in the UK are not allowed to make the same claims that it will "fix" this and "cure" that, but as CBD grows in popularity, more and more people are sharing their own personal results and findings. Just look on any social media page to see how people are finding CBD).
CBD is often called other names like:
