Benefits of Using CBD
Cannabidiol has been used for thousands of years. Many users claim that it supports a balanced lifestyle and improved wellbeing. There have been many studies over the last few years that have looked at the positive effects of CBD with more research appearing as CBD continues to prove popular.
CBD and the Endocannabinoid System
You may be surprised to hear that CBD is very similar to chemicals already present in the body. The endocannabinoids (produced internally in the body) are part of a network of chemicals and receptors known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
This ECS assists the body by ensuring it is operating in a state of balance known as homeostasis.
CBD works so well with the body due to how it interacts with the ECS. Because it is so similar to other chemicals already in the body, it is able to integrate easily. In this effect, CBD helps to ensure the state of balance.
Are there any side effects?
CBD is a non-addictive, non-psychoactive substance. There is still research ongoing on the benefits and side-effects of CBD. In the UK, CBD is legal as a food supplement, not for medical use. CBD products may interfere with some medications; we therefore advise you to talk to your doctor.
Are there any side effects?
Most CBD users don’t experience any side effects, but some may experience symptoms such as low blood pressure, dry mouth, light-headedness and drowsiness. These side effects can depend on the amount of CBD you take. If you are taking medication for blood pressure or diabetes or you suffer from heart disease, please ask your doctor for advice before using cannabidiol.
As Cannabidiol is legal and non-psychoactive, you can drive after taking CBD. However, if you’re a newcomer it is recommended to wait until you’ve found the perfect dosage for you before driving, as some users experience dizziness when they start.
What are the different types of CBD products?
E-liquids are designed to be vaporised by an e-cigarette device, allowing CBD to be absorbed into your lungs.
CBD oral drops
Liquid drops are designed to be taken orally, or for best results, placed under your tongue for 2 minutes to increase the absorption rate.
CBD creams and lotion
Topical creams are designed for your skin and allow you to target a specific area of your body.
Usually in the form of gummies, CBD edibles are an alternative to drops and offer a variety of flavours.
