Organic CBD Oil

Balance

You can’t have missed hearing about the active health ingredient of the moment. CBD stands for Cannabidiol. As its name suggests it is derived from the Cannabis plant but these aren’t the psychoactive ingredients that can get you high (or paranoid or hungry depending on how it might affect you!!) - that’s THC.

CBD is reputed to have other effects however –some of which could be important health-associated benefits. CBD is currently undergoing dozens of clinical trials. It is already approved by the US Food and Drug Administration as an epilepsy treatment and is being considered for other neurological disorders. It has long been reported as an effective chronic pain reliever inhibiting inflammatory and neuropathic pain and is commonly used to address anxiety and insomnia.  

It seems that CBD is generally well-tolerated by many as an everyday supplement and therapy.

(It should be noted that CBD can interact with some blood thinning medication in the same way as grapefruit juice).

 CBD oil is infused in organic cold pressed virgin hemp seed oil so along with cannabidinol it is packed with other beneficial compounds such as omega 3, 6 and 9 healthy fats and flavonoids. Derived from hemp our CBD also contains a full range of plant terpenes – these are strong aromatic compounds that give many plants and herbs their odour and therapeutical properties.
