What Is CBD?
Although an increasingly common ingredient in many health and wellness products, you may still wonder, what is CBD? It’s one of at least 85 active compounds inside cannabis plants and has quickly gained favor among those seeking a different approach to everyday wellness. CBD has quality benefits concerning the human body. Emerging studies support the idea that CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system. Which is a biological network composed of cannabinoid receptors – to help the body maintain overall health and wellness.
According to Forbes, the UK CBD market has been growing rapidly during the pandemic as people search for alternatives to help with anxiety and sleepless nights. Projected revenue to expected to hit £450 million this year - and is expected to be sustained as more consumers become comfortable in with the potential benefits of CBD oils.
Is CBD Oil Legal In The UK?
CBD oil is legal to manufacture and sell as long as it complies with current UK regulations.
CBD doesn’t contain THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid that causes you to feel high after using cannabis. THC, as well as numerous other cannabinoids, are strictly controlled in the UK via the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and the Misuse of Drug Regulations Act 2001. As long as a CBD product is produced using a strain of hemp that’s approved by the EU, it’s legal for you to purchase and use it in the UK.
All CBD oil sold in the UK needs to have a THC content of 0.2% or less. Oils that contain CBD but also have a high THC content cannot legally be manufactured or sold in the UK.
Our products from cbdMD are all well below this the threshold and are completely legal in the UK. Our oils, gummies, capsules, topicals and bath bombs are all THC free*. Which means that levels of THC are undetectable when using standard scientific instruments.
Where Does CBD Come From?
CBD is typically extracted from hemp, which is bred to contain minimal THC - industrial hemp, according to UK law, must contain less than 0.2 percent THC. Hemp derived CBD products offer the properties of the entire hemp plant, CBD, additional cannabinoids and terpenes without the presence of THC.
CBD is also a particular type of phytocannabinoid. One of the several identified phytocannabinoids found in Cannabis sativa, including others such as cannabinol (CBN) and cannabigerol (CBG). A phytocannabinoid is a cannabinoid that synthesizes in plants organically, and conversely, an endocannabinoid is one that our bodies naturally produce. Endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids react to the same type of receptors stretched throughout the human body, which is why phytocannabinoids are particularly useful.
