World Health Organisation gives CBD the Green Light.
“CBD has no adverse health outcomes…
…And is good for several conditions.”
– World Health Organisation
We’ve known all along, but it always helps when renowned experts confirm the facts. A World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) report
has found no adverse health outcomes, and several medical applications for cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.
After months of clinical trials, the organisation’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) confirmed that, “in humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.”
Researchers at the global U.N agency went on to affirm that CBD has “been demonstrated as an effective treatment for epilepsy” in adults, children, and even animals, and that there's “preliminary evidence” that CBD could be useful in treating Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, psychosis, Parkinson's disease, and other serious conditions.
The W.H.O. team also confirmed that unlike THC, people aren't getting high off CBD. “To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD”. In fact, evidence suggests that CBD mitigates the effects of THC - whether it’s elation or anxiety.
Trent Scanlen, Managing Director, Truth Naturals
, said “This is great news. The recent focus by reputable organisations such as WHO and Oxford University is helping us share the successes of thousands of customers in the UK. We support further regulation and research to ensure that more people can understand how organic plants can help improve their lives.”
The logical argument for further investigation into a product with such widespread anecdotal evidence of efficacy is hard to continue to deny. Especially when you also consider the wealth of clinical research by reputable institutions, which show CBD to be an effective treatment for chronic pain, PTSD, anxiety, and many other ailments. The W.H.O. recognise this, and their report recommends that CBD ceases to be a scheduled drug.
Politicians are waking up to this fact, despite President Trump’s opposition to legalisation.
Phil Murphy’s recent victory as 56th Governor of New Jersey means Democrats now control the state government, and that’s good news for cannabis and its non-psychoactive derivatives like CBD.
“The criminalisation of marijuana has only served to clog our courts and cloud people’s futures, so we will legalise marijuana,” said Murphy after his win. “And while there are financial benefits, this is overwhelmingly about doing what is right and just.” New Jersey would become the ninth state to legalise it – and the first to do it through legislature rather than a ballot initiative.
While CBD itself is safe and found to be helpful by many people, industry experts have warned that not all CBD products are created equally, purely, or with the same methods of extraction.
Some suppliers don’t take the kind of care and precautions that we do at Truth to ensure that the product is of the highest quality. All Truth Naturals products are sourced from the best growers in Colorado, USA, and our products are thoroughly lab tested so that we can guarantee that our CBD oil is pure, full of all the beneficial phytocannabinoids, minerals, fatty acids and vitamins you want and without any chemicals, pesticides or heavy metals that you don’t.
All our products are thoroughly lab tested to ensure that any trace amounts of THC are completely removed.
Hemp plants grown specifically for CBD are cultivated with a high concentration of the compound, and low levels of THC – the compound that makes you feel high. CBD is then extracted from the plant and used as a concentrate in capsules, drops, vape pens or lotions. A good quality supplier like Truth Naturals guarantees you zero THC, meaning you’ll experience no unwanted effects from taking it. CBD supplements have been legally available in the UK since early 2017.
A true panacea for modern life, CBD has been reported to help with everyday conditions like inflammation, pain relief, sleep, acne, psoriasis, migraines, and sports recovery. Research is underway into its benefits for serious conditions and diseases like anxiety, depression, epilepsy, rheumatism, multiple sclerosis and even cancer. As the rise in CBD oil continues, there’s no doubt we’ll be hearing many more positive studies and stories.
