CBD Oil - Best CBD Oils in UK  Strongest Cannabidiol with Free Delivery

CBD or CBD oils are not intended to treat, cure or diagnose any medical or health conditions. It is sold as a food supplement only. The following article does not make claims of medical benefits. It only points to current and ongoing research to show the potential of CBD. Nothing has been proven as of today.

Understanding CBD Oil: Usage and Health Benefits in the UK

CBD oil, also known as cannabidiol oil, is made by extracting CBD from Cannabis Sativa L (aka Hemp plant) and mixing it with a carrier oil such as MCT oil. CBD has various health and wellbeing benefits which is why people take CBD oil. THC on the other hand, also a cannabinoid, is not like CBD. THC is the reason behind the psychedelic highs. CBD does not produce this high as it is not a psychedelic. But it is considered psychoactive.

How to Use CBD Oil and the Different CBD Products Available in the UK

There are 3 main types of CBD oil available on the market:

  • Full-spectrum - This contains all of the plant's natural compounds including other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and even trace amounts of THC.
  • Broad-spectrum - Like full spectrum this also includes all of the plant's compounds except for THC. All the THC is removed.
  • CBD isolate - This is a pure form of CBD that has been isolated from all other compounds in the plant. It does not contain any THC, terpenes, flavonoids or any other cannabinoids.

Each of these oils come in 2 forms:

  • Tinctures or Drops - This is when CBD oil comes in a bottle with a dropper. This is the most popular form CBD oil is packaged into.
  • Sprays - This is when the CBD oil comes packaged into a spray bottle. Instead of using a dropper you simply spray the CBD oil into your mouth.

Health Benefits of Using CBD Oil Regularly

Remember the safety and effectiveness of CBD or CBD oil has not been extensively studied yet. There are no clear cut proofs of its effectiveness but only anecdotal and small scale studies.

CBD oil is a food supplement and not medication. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. If you are on medication, looking to replace your medication or to cure an ailment you have, please speak with your healthcare provider before starting any supplement including CBD oil.

Stress, Anxiety and Depression

One of the key benefits of CBD and CBD oil is its potential to reduce anxiety and stress. CBD is thought to interact with receptors in the brain that regulate mood and stress levels.

A study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology found that CBD was effective in reducing anxiety in individuals with social anxiety disorder.

Another study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology found that CBD reduced anxiety in individuals with generalised anxiety disorder.

A review of studies published in the journal Neurotherapeutics also stated that CBD may be effective in reducing anxiety and improving sleep.

These studies are very limited and large randomised controlled trials are needed as evidence to suggest CBD oil does reduce anxiety, depression and stress. Until then, CBD oil is only a food supplement and is not intended to treat, diagnose or cure any medical ailments

Swelling and Inflammation

CBD oils may also have anti-inflammatory properties and therefore potentially help with pain management.

A study published in the European Journal of Pain found that CBD applied on the skin reduced inflammation and pain sensitivity in rats with arthritis.

Another study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD significantly reduced chronic inflammation and pain in some mice and rats.

A study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology found that CBD effectively reduced chronic pain in animals.

Blood Pressure

CBD also shows promise in reducing blood pressure. A small scale study investigated the effect of CBD on BP and found that it reduced BP in various scenarios by approximately 5mmHg. It also showed a reduction in BP during stress. However, there was also an associated increase in heart rate. More studies are needed to establish the effects of CBD on cardiovascular system.

Never take CBD to reduce your blood pressure. Instead speak to your medical or healthcare provider for medical advice.
