What is CBD Oil? & What are the Benefits?
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD is rapidly becoming one of the most popular natural remedies to treat various ailments that impact people’s daily lives. CBD is one of over one hundred chemical compounds named cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, specifically Cannabis sativa.
Tetrehydrocannabinol better known as THC, is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid active in cannabis. It is THC that causes the sensation of getting ‘high’ that is probably most common perception of cannabis and marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects and does not cause the user to get ‘high’.
CBD not having any psychoactive side effects is a quality that makes CBD oil an attractive option for anyone who is seeking relief from pain or other symptoms. The mind-altering effects of marijuana, cannabis and even some pharmaceutical drugs can be intolerable and make it difficult to use on a daily basis.
CBD oil is created by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant which is then diluted with a carrier oil such as MCT oil, hemp seed oil or vegetable oil. CBD oil is growing in popularity and is gaining significant momentum in the health and wellness industry. Certain scientific studies are beginning to confirm that CBD oil does ease the symptoms of chronic pain, anxiety and depression.
There are some key benefits that CBD oil may have when you incorporate it into your daily life.
Is CBD Oil Legal?
In the UK, CBD oil is totally legal and has been Federally approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as legal in the United States of America. While the Cannabis plant as a whole remains illegal in the UK, certain cannabinoids are legal, such as CBD and CBG.
While cannabinoids such as THC are illegal under The Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. CBD products are legal so long as there is less than 0.2% THC in the product.
There is incoming Novel Food legislation in the UK and Europe that is going to be implemented on the 31st of March 2021. This new legislation dictates that all ingestible CBD products must be formulated using CBD isolate and full-spectrum products will no longer be allowed to sell on the market. Classing CBD as a Novel Food will mean that the is definitive legislation that CBD manufacturers and brands must abide by. This should result in a higher quality of product across the market and ensure that all CBD products are tested by third parties to ensure what is being advertised on the bottle is actually what is contained.
The Novel Food legislation is a positive step for the CBD industry as it is the first instance of regulation within the CBD market, this will build the foundation on which appropriate legislation can be implemented for other cannabinoids too.
