What is CBD?
What is Full Spectrum CBD?
The reason behind Full-Spectrum CBD’s growing acclaim is because it contains everything the plant contains. Therefore it’s full of all the terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and fatty & amino acids, all of which offer a wide range of health & theraputic benefits and help create what’s know as the Entourage Effect . CBD is not psychoactive, meaning that it won’t make you ‘high’ (less than 0.2% THC).
How Does CBD Interact With the Body?
CBD interacts with the body via the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a biological system found in all mammals, and is involved in managing a wide variety of biological processes, including memory, sleep, immune response, and more. It mainly consists of two types of cannabinoid receptors – CB1 and CB2. These receptors are designed to interact with endocannabinoids (cannabinoids naturally produced by the brain), but they also interact with plant-derived cannabinoids like CBD, which in turn cause a variety of responses that are very beneficial for the body & mind.
Is Using CBD Oil Legal?
CBD is completely 100% legal in the UK. This is because CBD is not a controlled substance and therefore there are no restrictions over its use.
