There are a lot of mixed messages circulating about CBD oil.One of our aims is to help clear the misconceptions about it, so here are our top three facts about CBD:
1. CBD oil will not make you high.
Unlike THC, cannabidiol does not cause a psychoactive reaction. Nor will it increase hunger or drowsiness, or cause changes in heart rate, blood pressure, or body temperature. This is because CBD and THC act on entirely different receptors of the body’s endocannabinoid system.
2. CBD is in clinical trials for potential medical benefits.
Early research suggests very positive potential for widespread therapeutic application. The studies look at a wide range of areas, including CBD oil for pain relief, as an anti-inflammatory, for the symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease, and for the treatment of anxiety and depression, as well as for the treatment of severe seizures. The research shows CBD oil to have little or very low-risk side effects.
3. CBD oil is entirely legal in the UK.
CBD oil can be made from medical marijuana plants or industrial hemp plants, and is entirely legal in the UK, Canada, many European countries and in the U.S.A. The law is constantly updating across the world, as more and more countries wake up to CBD’s benefits and join the revolution.
