According to Wikipedia CBD was discovered around 80 years ago although the past couple of years in particular has seen a surge of CBD infused products. Although medical claims can not be made by the manufacturers there are many success stories of using CBD oil to reduce pain, reduce depression and anxiety, improve neurological disorders and more. Of course it is always best to do your own thorough research and speak to media practitioners too.
 
According to The Week “For CBD oil to be legal in the UK, it must contain no THC. Cannabis oil, which has THC content, is not usually allowed in the UK.”
 
Nutritionist Alix Woods, working in association with CannabiGold tells us:

“CBD has been praised for helping support sleep as well. CBD contains a non-psychoactive, chemical compound, cannabidiol or CBD which is renowned for its calming, anti-anxiety and sleep- inducing properties. The compound interacts with the regulatory centre of the body, including the brain, hormones and nerve receptors in the body.

These interactions are anti- inflammatory (dull pain), encourage relaxation and improve sleep. If you’re a late-night worrier, CBD oil could be just the thing, CBD has been found to reduce the stress response as it interacts with serotonin, the ‘happy hormone’ receptors and GABA, the anti-inhibitory receptors in the brain. This enhances serotonin and in combination with GABA, calms the mind, minimises worry and promotes relaxation.”
