What are the benefits of CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) has fast become one of the most popular alternative food supplements on the planet. Before adding this popular supplement to your diet, it’s worth investigating the health benefits.

This is then mixed with an edible oil, such as olive oil or coconut oil. CBD oil is dropped into the mouth under the tongue, by using the dripper built into the bottle. Benefit one; it’s really easy to take.
CBD oils in the UK have a maximum THC content of 0.2%. THC is the mind altering compound in cannabis plants which makes it illegal. Benefit two; you can enjoy the effects of CBD oil without breaking any laws.
