CBD oil

Also known as cannabidiol, CBD oil is made from the stalk, stems, leaves and flowers of the hemp plant which contain high amounts of active, therapeutic cannabinoids.  It differs from hemp oil used in food and beauty, which is made from the seeds of the same plant.

CBD oil  is completely legal.   The Home Office only issues licences for cultivation of plants from approved seed types with a THC content not exceeding 0.2%.

CBD oil benefits

CBD has only recently been taken seriously and accepted by the medical industry, so there are limited scientific studies on the topic.  However, CBD is believed to have significant therapeutic properties and many strong health benefits.

The World Health Organisation states that CBD oil is “generally well tolerated with a good safety profile,” and that it may be able to offer relief for victims suffering from:

 

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Parkinson’s
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Cancer (and related treatments)
  • Diabetes
  • General pain
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
