What is CBD?
Let’s start from the top, tracing CBD right back to the source and what it is and where it comes from before it presents itself in the form of CBD oil UK. CBD (the shortened name for cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis Sativa (generally the hemp plant). CBD is one of over a hundred cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant family.
Many people have heard of cannabis but have associations of the drug form of marijuana. Consequently, there are some different associations when it comes to the effect it has on the body. While CBD oil is generally known for its therapeutic calming effects, including pain relief and reduced levels of anxiety, people tend to associate the word cannabis with the notion of getting high. These two effects may seem somewhat incongruous, and there’s a reason for that.
CBD vs THC
While CBD is the leading active compound in CBD oil UK, there is another compound that is strongly at play (and leading in terms of effectiveness) in the type of cannabis that is used in the drug often referred to as marijuana or weed. This cannabinoid is known as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and causes the psychoactive, mind-altering effects which are so commonly associated with marijuana and weed. Meanwhile, CBD contains no mind-altering properties and the amount of THC present in best CBD oil UK is incredibly low.
This is, in fact, one of the legal requirements in many countries to sell best CBD oil and other CBD products. In the majority of European countries, CBD products must contain less than 0.2% THC to be sold. Most products will have an almost untraceable amount of THC in them. CBD products are derived from industrial hemp strains which has very low THC levels and during the extraction process laboratory-grade tests are carried out to verify the levels of THC.

How does it interact with the body?
Across our central nervous system (the brain and the spinal cord) as well as in our immune system there are sets of receptors that make up what is referred to as the endocannabinoid system. These receptors (CB1 and CB2 receptors) communicate and interact with cannabinoids when they enter the body, and due to the diversity of their locations, these interactions can have a profound effect on a great number of our daily physiological processes and experiences.
Did you know that the body cannot produce cannabinoids of its own accord? Yet, we all have cannabinoid receptors within us. It seems as if we were made to have these interactions with Mother Nature’s plant produce.
