CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one of over a hundred different compounds known as cannabinoids. CBD is a wonderful plant extract rich in cannabinoids and terpenes, which helps bring balance to our bodies and minds by interacting with the endocannabinoid system in our bodies.
The benefits of CBD oil are wide and varied and it is sold legally in the UK. The World Health Organisation stipulates that CBD oil is non-toxic, non-addictive and non-psychoactive.
CBD is derived from a strain of cannabis plant called hemp sativa. Hemp sativa naturally grows with very low levels of THC, so it is legal in the UK. It contains high levels of CBD (cannabidiol) and over 100 different healthy cannabinoids. CBD and other cannabinoids are not psychoactive or physically addictive.
UK Home Office regulations prevent us from providing any specific medical claims regarding CBD’s efficacy for specific conditions. However, there is an increasing amount of studies exploring the benefits of CBD use, and a lot of anecdotal evidence reporting an amazing array of benefits.
We absorb a significant amount of what we put onto our skin. Artemis Rose Aromas believes in putting nourishing “skin food” onto our bodies. CBD is a wonderful plant compound to use topically. When used topically CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the body, significantly CB2 receptors, which research suggests has beneficial results for the improvement of inflammation, pain, immune response, muscle support, bone growth and nervous system support.
We know that our bodies create cannabinoids, which are used by the endocannabinoid system to maintain balance (homeostasis) in the body. However, most of us are unable to create enough of our own cannabinoids and therefore the endocannabinoid system can be depleted, resulting in lower quality health. The endocannabinoid system is vital as a system in the body for maintaining long-term health. Research suggests that by taking CBD, your body is able to create more of the cannabinoids needed, thus supporting balance and wellness. It is essential to keep this system working well as it helps our immune systems, protects our brains, strengthens our nervous system, helps with stress and anxiety management, and generally helps keeps our bodies in good homeostasis/ balance.
It is wise to check with a health care provider before using CBD oil if you are using other medication.
