CBD Oil UK: What are the Benefits?

Cannabidiol CBD has fast become one of the most popular alternative food supplements in the UK (and throughout the world). Before adding this popular supplement to your diet, it’s worth investigating the health benefits.

By far the most popular way people add CBD to their diet is CBD oil, though in 2018 we have seen a rise in innovative applications such as CBD soft gels and CBD gel tabs.

CBD is extracted through a high-tech CO2 process from varieties of cannabis & hemp plants. Not just any old plants though, as only strains which are naturally abundant in CBD and low in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are used.

Once it’s extracted, it’s then mixed with an edible oil, typically olive oil or coconut oil, before being lovingly packaged and shipped to your door. CBD oil is dropped into the mouth under the tongue, by using the dripper built into the bottle. This is called sublingual application. So, benefit one; it’s really easy to take.

CBD oils in the UK have a maximum THC content of 0.2% (which is why they are legal). THC is the mind altering compound in cannabis plants which makes cannabis illegal. Benefit two; you can enjoy the benefits of CBD oil without breaking any laws.

Another benefit of a low THC content - THC is a psychoactive compound which encourages negative side effects. It’s gets you high. There is no more than 0.2% THC in CBD oil, so benefit three; CBD oil won’t get you high.

As a nutritional supplement, CBD supplements your body’s natural endocannabinoid system. In short, the endocannabinoid system helps to regulate many important contributing factors to one's overall wellness, such as the immune system. Benefit four; CBD promotes balance and wellness.

There are also a number of studies around the world which suggest that CBD could provide other benefits. However for now, clinical trials have not provided conclusive evidence.
