A Brief Look at CBD

A Brief Look at CBD

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many active compounds found in the Cannabis plant. Doctors and Scientists are calling it the newest “game changer”. The cannabis plant also creates Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is known to have psychoactive properties however the plant is cultivated to reduce the THC to less than 0.2% leaving the plant rich in CBD, the compound we can all benefit from. CBD is legal in the UK providing that it contains less than 0.2% THC, meaning our products will not get you high!

Is CBD an ideal medicine?

The UK law does not permit CBD to be described as a medicinal supplement regardless of the studies that suggest it serves like one. It is sold as a food supplement.

Although studies are still in their infancy, they provide us with promising results of health benefits of the product in many areas such as stress, anxiety, relaxation and inflammation. In many cases, once these issues are treated, it can result in healing much more complex mental and physical conditions.

How does CBD work?

CBD works in harmony with your endocannabinoid system (ECS). CBD feeds your ECS receptors to help restore and balance homeostasis within the body, including physiological processes including pain-sensation, mood, appetite, sleep and memory.

How should I administer CBD?

There are different methods of taking CBD, a common method is sublingual administration, it is claimed this is the most effective method of administration, this is where you administer 2-5 drops under the tongue and leave it to sit for a minute before swallowing. Some people may prefer topical application if they are suffering with either chronic pain or a skin related condition such as eczema or acne, this is where you apply a formula straight to the skin as there are receptors all over the body, as a result, it could be more effective in treating something directly.

Why choose Endo CBD?

Whilst many companies have been found to spike their low-grade oils with cheap isolates or synthetic versions from China, at Endo CBD we pride ourselves on using organic and natural ingredients, locally sourced CBD, as well as avoiding using harmful and unnecessary chemicals, fillers or cheap synthetics. Each batch is third party tested showing it is safe, legal and free from contaminates. You can access our lab results from our website.

Our CBD blend also contains CBG, also known as cannabigerol and “the mother of all cannabinoids”, this is another molecule in the cannabis plant which is a safe, non-psychoactive compound being studied for more mental and physical benefits.

When buying CBD, it is important that you trust the company, verification and certificates of each product should be attainable to ensure they contain the correct amount of CBD and no more than 0.2% THC.
