Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound chemical in the Cannabis sativa plant. CBD is also called hemp or cannabis. In 2017, the World Health Organisation (WHO) produced a report that found CBD provides relief for a wide variety of medical conditions such as cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. The report also stated CBD helped alleviate the effects of general pain disorder, depression, and anxiety. Since legalisation, many people over the mandated age limit can now buy CBD in a wide variety of products.
Gummies and Edibles
Many consumers do not like to smoke or cannot smoke during certain social events. CBD-infused gummies and edibles make it possible to enjoy the effects of CBD without the smoke. CBD is absorbed through the digestive system. Consumers report that edibles provide longer lasting effects than other products on the market.
Oils and Tinctures
CBD oils and tinctures are generally made from high concentrations of CBD. Consumers drop a few drops underneath their tongue. The cannabinoid receptors absorb the tincture or oil and can help alleviate migraines, stress, anxiety, or other physical issues. Many people choose oils and tinctures over other products because they have a long shelf life. You should store CBD oils and tinctures at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.
In recent years, vapourisers have increasingly grown in popularity in the UK. Many people are quitting smoking cigarettes and switching to vapes. Vapes are refillable and the vapour juice is relatively inexpensive in comparison to smoking multiple packs of cigarettes. Like nicotine-based e-liquid, consumers can now purchase CBD e-liquid in various concentrations. CBD e-liquid can be used in most vapour devices and provide the same alleviating effects from pain and daily stressors as other products on the market.
CBD-infused lotions, salves, and other topicals are applied directly to your skin. When CBD is applied to your skin, it activates your endocannabinoid system because there is a high concentration of cannabinoid receptors in your skin. The CBD binds to these receptors which works to alleviate inflammation and pain. For those suffering from long-term joint pain, they find it is easy to rub lotion on the inflicted areas to target the pain rather than use other forms of CBD products.
For those who like to smoke, CBD flowers are a great option. CBD flowers can be rolled in paper or put in a glass device. CBD flowers are highly concentrated and often provide a greater relaxing or calming sensation.
