CBD EXPLAINED IN A MANNER WE CAN ALL UNDERSTAND
Think of CBD as a food supplement, a herbal remedy, a pure plant extract that, unlike other known plant-based remedies, happens to be more effective than anything we’ve experienced from nature.
Even though it seems like cannabidiol (CBD) is something new, it has been used by humans since the dawn of civilisation. CBD is a natural constituent of hemp and cannabis, a plant that has been utilised for centuries as medicine. It’s not uncommon for old medicinal practices to be reestablished in cultures, more so now it seems as we turn back to nature for nurture.
CBD itself was only identified in the 1930s and its specific chemical structure was not documented until 1963. Since then research has continued and many scientists now consider CBD to be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
Cannabis is predominantly associated with the cannabinoid THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol) – it’s the one that gets you high. And it’s the one which we do not include in our CBD products. It’s the one which is illegal in the UK. CBD products in the UK must contains no more than 1mg of THC per container, no matter the size of the container. That said, CBD processed from the whole plant and therefore truely full spectrum as all our CBD is, can be up to 2mg THC per container.
CBD is believed to be responsible for most of the wellbeing benefits of the cannabis plant, and new benefits are being discovered all the time.
