Getting Started With CBD

Understand CBD:

The cannabis plant contains many chemical compounds called cannabinoids which product a harmony of interesting effects. The two most commonly known cannabinoids are THC (associated with the famous cannabis “high”) and CBD. Your body actually produces its own cannabinoids as part of the endocannabinoid system, a relatively recently discovered system within the human body. By binding to the relevant receptors, taking CBD helps this system work more efficiently. This is what is responsible for the huge variety of reported health benefits of CBD oil; it helps your endocannabinoid system do what it does anyway, only better. To learn more about how it can help you ease your own anxiety, consult our CBD For Anxiety page.

Review the research:

As the consumer, it’s your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the available evidence before making a purchase. CBD research is admittedly in its infancy on all fronts, but many animal and pre-clinical studies have been performed already with promising results. As laws surrounding hemp-derived products continue to loosen, there is more and more demand for clinical trials of CBD for treating a whole host of health conditions. Initial research aside, there is a huge amount of anecdotal evidence from CBD users all over the globe attesting to the effectiveness of CBD. For your convenience, we have compiled and summarised studies pertaining to CBD’s effect on various ailments including anxiety, depression and pain. Consult our research section and decide for yourself whether the case for CBD oil is compelling.
