Have you heard about a new remedy that’s giving relief to sufferers of many different illnesses? Maybe you haven’t, in which case it may come as a welcome surprise if you or someone you know has an illness. I’m referring to CBD oil, available in many forms, it can be used or taken in several differing ways.
So, what is CBD Oil?
Its full name is Cannabidiol, and it is one of over 100 natural compounds found in the Cannabis plant, once it’s been extracted it’s mixed with hemp seed oil, coconut oil or something similar to create CBD oil. Obviously, the Cannabis plant has a certain reputation, but CBD contains either a very small amount or none at all of the psychoactive compound known as Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC which means it won’t get you high. CBD oil is legal in the UK so long as it contains less than 0.2% THC, anything above would make it subject to the misuse of drug act, if you’re reading this short article from outside the UK, it’s best to check the situation where you live.
