One of the most intriguing and controversial supplements to hit shop shelves in recent years, CBD oil has set tongues wagging all over the world.
Using high quality ingredients, this 2.75% strength oil is produced with the utmost care by Jacob Hooy, a long-respected brand founded way back in 1743, and the first to introduce CBD products to the European market.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is an active substance found in the hemp oil extracted from leaves and flowers of the hemp plant, a member of the cannabis family.
Available in a variety of formats, including gummies, CBD tablets and CBD Jacob Hooy capsules and available as a simple oil too, CBD is extracted from the cannabis sativa plant and added to a carrier, most commonly hemp seed oil.
Benefits of CBD and CBD effects
CBD has been used to treat niggling back pain for thousands of years, with the earliest recorded use as long ago as 2900 BC.
Hemp’s use as a pain reliever certainly does not appear to be without merit.
Research has shown promising results in a variety of studies, while anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD may have positive effects on pain symptoms in a variety of chronic conditions, including some neurological disorders.
The science says that CBD interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid receptors and it is fair to say that our endocannabinoid system is a pretty hard worker, taking responsibility for regulating a wide range of functions, including both the immune system and pain response.
Studies have backed up this theory, showing extremely promising results in easing the chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia and neuropathy, among others.
Used topically, CBD has also been seen to help provide relief from arthritic pain, while supplements appear to ease the acute discomfort of migraines.
CBD: brain benefits?
CBD’s a bit of a busy body by all accounts. Not only is it happy to interfere with pain receptors, it also interacts with the brain’s serotonin receptors.
This has made it effective in easing the symptoms of a variety of mental health issues, including depression, PTSD and even addiction.
Supplementing with CBD appears to be particularly effective at helping to relieve feelings of stress and anxiety, which in turn could help to lower blood pressure, providing extra protection for the heart.
Placing just a few drops (up to 15 in total) of this quality oil under the tongue 2 – 3 times a day can help you to enjoy the much talked about benefits of CBD oil.
As CBD oil has a distinctive taste, we recommend a small glass of water after taking it, helping the flavour to diminish within 30 seconds.
