What is CBD?

Let’s be honest, you’ve probably all seen or heard of CBD right – but how many of you don’t really know what it is, where it’s come from, and if it’s just another hype?

The facts

Let’s start with what CBD is, or as it’s more formally known; Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of the chemical compounds found in the Cannabis plant, Cannabis Sativa – also known as marijuana or hemp. CBD will not, I repeat, WILL NOT, in any way, shape or form get you high. Cannabis plants are made of many different compounds, and the one and only compound which gets you high is THC – this is completely separate from CBD.

Why CBD?

Now we’ve cleared that up, you probably would like to know why so many people take and speak so highly of CBD Oil.

Our body contains a specialised system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), this system is still under a lot of research by experts, however we do know it plays a vital role in regulating a range of functions and processes, including:

  • Memory
  • Appetite
  • Mood
  • Reproduction
  • Fertility
  • Sleep
  • Pain

Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.

With that being said, we truly believe that CBD can only have positive effects on our body – whether that be minimising or erasing a chronic pain, brightening your mood, or helping aid a better nights sleep, which in turn enables you to have more energy resulting in more successful days, it is worth taking and trying!

The benefits

We know a number of people from all walks of life who supplement CBD Oil for a variety of reasons, some for health, and some for wellbeing and we have never heard a single person say ‘I can’t feel any benefit from this.’.

If you are a person that suffers from:

  • Restless nights
  • Aches and pains
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Lack of motivation
  • Depression
