If you’re as interested in health supplements and products as we are, you may well keep an eye on the latest trends and points of discussion within this space.
One thing that’s been in the headlines for a while is cannabidiol – also known as CBD oils – and their potential health benefits.
CBD has long been advocated in some quarters as having the potential to help people allay or tackle a spectrum of issues and health problems.
But there has been opposition in some quarters due to concerns linked with the use of cannabis for recreational purposes.
The reality however is that while both are derived from the cannabis plant, cannabidiol is a very different entity to the substance used for recreational purposes.
CBD is one of more than 100 naturally occurring chemical compounds that can be derived from the cannabis plant. Once extracted, CBD is in most cases mixed with a carrier oil. This could be oil from hemp plants or coconut oil for example.
The compound of the cannabis plant associated with the feeling of being ‘high’ is called THC. But CBD oil is legal in the UK so long as it contains no more than 0.2% THC, and the THC can’t be separated from the oil with ease. This is too little of an amount for any ‘high’ to be felt by the user.
What health benefits can CBD oils bring?
Much is still being discovered and debated about the potential health benefits of CBD, but there are some areas that these products are widely thought to be advantageous in.
CBD has been cited as a pain relief treatment, as well as potentially beneficial to sufferers of anxiety disorders, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
There have also been links found between CBD and treatment for specific forms of epilepsy, while some have also highlighted potential benefits for sufferers of diabetes.
