BRITISH CANNABIS Answers Your Questions

What you will Learn in the Ultimate Guide to CBD

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a chemical compound taken from cannabis plants. It is believed to have an effect on our cell-signal system (the Endocannabinoid System), which regulates functions like sleep, pain relief, and immune response.

This is why CBD has a wide range of applications. CBD is one of the cannabis plant’s two most abundant compounds – the other being THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

Cannabis plants that contain less than 0.2% to 3% THC can be legally grown. Marijuana has higher levels of THC.THC is an illegal substance because it has stronger psychoactive effects (produces high). Scroll down to find out more about CBD guide. 

What is CBD?

CBD guide – There are three main types of CBD products: oils, sprays, and vapes. You can also use it as a cream for your skin or as a muscle balm. We’ve seen CBD popping up in everything, from tea bags to cosmetics to popcorn.

Experts are skeptical about CBD products that contain CBD, even though there isn’t much evidence to support them. They also don’t believe CBD can be absorbed by the body in an effective manner.

Is CBD legal in the UK

CBD guide

CBD guide – Today, the government announced that CBD products should not be consumed by pregnant women, nursing mothers, and those taking medication.

The government’s Committee on Toxicity (COT) has found that CBD products can cause ‘potential adverse effects to the health of people’.

What can CBD be used for? 

CBD guide – CBD is popularly used for anxiety, chronic pain, and insomnia.

Although medical research is still in its infancy stages, the World Health Organization (WHO), has indicated that CBD is well tolerated, not addictive, and that preliminary evidence suggests that CBD may be a helpful treatment for many medical conditions.

Do you have any evidence of CBD?

CBD guide – CBD has a lot of potential. However, existing clinical trials for anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain are so small that it is difficult to draw any firm conclusions. 

To investigate further, larger-scale human trials will be needed. The UK is currently conducting research into CBD’s effects on anxiety, psychosis, and pain management in chronic diseases. 

Research into schizophrenia and rare forms epilepsy is the most advanced. The majority of clinical trials currently apply to CBD-grade medical-grade CBD. It’s not known if commercial products have a lower concentration that can cause an effect.

Importantly, there are no established dosage guidelines. 

However, regulators have provided some CBD guidance on the upper limit. Although some studies have shown CBD can cause liver damage if taken in higher amounts, the Food Standards Authority (FSA), says the evidence isn’t conclusive. 

The FSA recommends that adults not exceed 70 mg per day. This is unless a doctor has given their approval. This amounts to approximately 28 drops of 5% CBD. 

What about CBD for pets and people? 

CBD guide – CBD isn’t just for humans. Owners are keen to use CBD to treat their pets’ anxiety, pain, and other health problems.

There are many CBD products for pets, but none that are currently licensed for use in the UK.

Although there is very little evidence to support the effects of CBD on animals it could prove dangerous for pets.

Some CBD oils contain THC, which can be extremely toxic for dogs and cats.

You can travel with CBD oil. 

CBD guide – When traveling with CBD oil, you should be cautious. Pure CBD oil is legal in the UK and many EU countries.

However, it is not always clear what other countries’ drug laws may apply to CBD products or what enforcement approach might be taken.

People have been caught with CBD oil at airports, although most of these incidents occurred in the USA.
