What is CBD?
CBD is a cannabinoid – a natural chemical compound found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. The Cannabis plant is made up of over 100 cannabinoids, including CBD and also THC (Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the psychoactive property found in Marijuana.
CBD is a non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive chemical found in hemp plants which has been attracting huge attention over the last couple of years. Hemp and marijuana are from the same plant family but Cannabis plants with 0.3 percent or less of THC are classed as Hemp and those with more than 0.3 percent THC are Marijuana. It’s THC which gets people ‘high’ and produces a psychoactive effect. CBD oil, derived from Industrial Hemp plants, is the compound which affects the body, not the brain.
The main reasons people take CBD are for pain relief, depression, anxiety, insomnia and PTSD. Some people with cancer and epilepsy have reported positive effects from taking a course of CBD over a period of time. Because it reacts well with our body’s natural endocannabinoid system, it may also help assist people with neurological issues such as MS and Parkinsons. Its natural healing qualities mean it is used by people with skin issues such as psoriasis and acne.
Although there are currently very few scientific papers to back-up the benefits of CBD, the testimonies and results of individual cases across the globe speak to the credibility of this incredible substance. Legislation is changing within Europe which will mean that all manufacturers will have to have a licence to sell CBD and all their products will be properly analysed and tested. This will ensure that consumers will know that they are buying their products from trusted cbd suppliers.
How Should I take my CBD?
Traditionally CBD is mixed with a ‘carrier’ agent or oil which is typically hemp seed oil, due to its close relation in flavour and consistency. It can be ingested orally by putting a few drops under the tongue to allow it to seep into the bloodstream, or mixed with food or drink.
Because of the increase in innovation in the CBD market there are now so many different ways to take CBD it can be quite overwhelming! Because of its prolonged dosage time period, CBD edibles such as CBD gummies and chocolate bites are popular. CBD Skincare creams are also popular due to their skin healing properties. CBD capsules are great for people who don’t enjoy ingesting an oil or for those who might lead an active lifestyle.
What are the benefits of CBD Capsules?
Because of its similarities to a regular supplement, alot of people feel more comfortable incorporating CBD capsules into their everyday routine. CBD oil has a distinct taste to it and can be overpowering for some people. Capsules such as Cannabigold Terpene + are tasteless and the dosage is easier to monitor.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are chemical compounds which are naturally found in plants to help protect it from insects and fungi and they are responsible for its smell. For example, they are what gives orange its citrus smell. The terpenes in a plant can have effects on the body. For example the terpenes in jasmine can have a calming effect on the body and in Hemp Essential oil they provide a range of health benefits including anti-depressant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Terpenes are combined with CBD oils to enhance the effects of the CBD.
Cannabigold is a Polish company which has been an industry leading brand since its inception. Unlike a lot of CBD brands, Cannabigold was founded by scientists in the environment, economics and pharmaceuticals.
The Cannabigold Terpenes + Range
The new CannabiGold CBD Oil capsules line contains 0.01% THC which is essentially zero THC CBD oil. This new range contains even less THC than previous lines and is within the UK law restrictions of 0.2%.
