The results we saw were incredibly fast: one tester said they found relief from chronic back pain after just one day of use. But everyone metabolises CBD oil in their own way, so as with all these products, we recommend taking a couple of drops two or three times a day for at least a month before you make your mind up. Again, this has a clear hemp taste with no added flavourings, but our testers found it quite pleasant nonetheless.
CBD is cannabidiol – one of more than 140 known cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.
This is a great choice for someone new to CBD who is perhaps after an overall wellbeing boost, or something to provide some light stress relief, rather than for one issue in particular. The addition of turmeric and ginger also underlines those anti-inflammatory benefits, if that’s something you’re after. The name of the “ease” range is perfect really, and we love that this oil is such a pleasure to take. It’s available in 400-1,000mg formulations, from £31.50 to £72.50.
Although the cannabinoids you’ll find in CBD oil, including cannabidiol, are extracted from the flowers, leaves and stalks of the cannabis sativa (or hemp) plant, the CBD oil you can buy in the UK won’t get you high. This is because, here, the legal limit for THC (the molecule in cannabis that can induce a stoned affect) is so low that the amount allowed in full-spectrum products is not enough to get you high.
CBD is one of over 60 compounds found in Cannabis Sativa (hemp plant) that belong to a class of ingredients called cannabinoids. CBD is non-psychoactive . That means it doesn’t get a user high, unlike marijuana.
According to the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, CBD benefits included acting in some experiments as anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic, and antipsychotic, and therefore a potential medicine for the treatment of neuroinflamation, epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting and nausea, anxiety, and schizophrenia.
