What is CBD oil & how does it work?

Cannabidiol or CBD oil is a product created from the cannabis plant, also commonly known as cannabis oil. CBD is essentially a type of cannabinoid which are components found naturally in Cannabis plants. Even though it comes from Cannabis, CBD oil doesn’t give you a “high” effect or any form of intoxication. That effect is caused by another cannabinoid found in the plant known as THC.

These cannabinoids interact with receptors within the human body, the two most commonly known ones being CB1 and CB2. These receptors are located within the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a biological regulatory mechanism found in all mammals.

So simply put, CBD oil works with the endocannabinoid system in your body to promote a regulatory response. Thus having a possible, positive effect for a wide range of human conditions from mental anxiety to physical pain.

    The Endocannabinoid system, cbd uk shop

    So what exactly is the endocannabinoid system and how does CBD oil work for me?

    The endocannabinoid system is neurological network found throughout the human body. This is a system of tissue and organ signalling in the body which sends and receives messages and has an effect on many aspects of human health including stress response, mood, inflammation, pain and immune functions.

    Our bodies do actually produce their own cannabinoids but a plant-derived cannabinoid like CBD, can activate the same receptors in our bodies and have comparable or stronger effects than our own endocannabinoids. This is, in a way, similar to how morphine from a poppy plant for example, can reduce pain by activating the endorphin receptors in the body.

    Studies about the benefits of CBD cannabis oil are ongoing and we are are still learning about all the different receptors that CBD interacts with. One research report estimated that CBD may actually interact with around 65 different receptors within the body making CBD and very important path for medical study.

    What can CBD actually help with?

    CBD as a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant has enormous therapeutic potential. Researchers studying the effects of CBD have been exploring a wide range of conditions for treatment including chronic anxiety, pain, dementia, insomnia, epilepsy and more. A good CBD oil will be able to target the area that you would like relief from and have a positive impact on your wellbeing.

    So far, pre-clinical research and some CBD clinical studies have shown CBD to have anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, strong anti-oxidant, anti-psychotic, anticonvulsant and anti-tumoral properties.

    Which one should i use? - CBD oil options explained

    CBD oils are fast becoming the most popular CBD products on the UK market, they usually come in the form of a tincture mixed with hemp oil, known as CBD hemp oil in the UK. CBD oil can be taken by putting a few drops under the tongue and keeping it in your mouth for a short while. This allows the CBD itself to be absorbed as much as possible before swallowed. CBD oil also comes in the form of a water soluble that can be added to your favourite drinks or meals.

    There many different kinds of CBD oil so choosing can become confusing. Different extraction methods and the amount of CBD per product - so which is best? Currently there are two main types of CBD oil known as "Full-spectrum" and "isolate". As we want to provide our customers with the best CBD oil available, at Cannica we provide only full spectrum CBD oil, and here’s the reasons why.

    Isolate CBD oils contain only CBD and no other cannabinoids are present in the product. Leading specialists in the industry show that full-spectrum CBD oil products are more effective due to the “entourage effect” where the presence of other cannabinoids together have a great effect than any of the components alone. Full-spectrum CBD oils contain a mixture of other known cannabinoids as well as certain terpenes and flavonoids. Together these essential compounds work in synergy with CBD to give the best results possible. On each of our CBD oil products you will find a lab report which displays the breakdown of other cannabinoids present in our CBD oils.

    Now there's also a variety of ways of extracting CBD from the cannabis plant. The very best CBD oils are made using the supercritical CO₂ extraction method - which is what we use. This method uses carbon dioxide under high pressure to best preserve and maintain the purity of the CBD and other naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes. This method means we can maximize the CBD content in our CBD oil while making sure that our products are 100% natural. CO₂ extraction requires no solvents or other toxic substances which makes it by far the best option. So, if you’re looking for the best CBD oil in the UK, then look no further.

    But which strength CBD oil should i use ?

    When it comes to the concentration, or strength of CBD found in CBD oil: higher doses of CBD will be more likely to have more pronounced effects on the body. It’s not always recommended to start with the highest strength of CBD. You can start low, and increase if necessary until you are getting the desired results. When observing the effects of the oil over several days or weeks, you can then make any necessary adjustments to the dosing. If you are not experiencing the desired effects during this period, you may need to alter your dosage or CBD stength in order to find what works best for you as everyone is different. Once the desired effects are present, you can then establish what strength of CBD oil is best for you.

    Is CBD Oil legal in the UK?

    Yes, CBD oil in the UK is completely legal. It can be a little confusing knowing that certain forms of Cannabis is not legal in the UK so let us try to explain.

    Currently in the UK cannabis is classified as a controlled substance by the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. An addition to this UK law called the Misuse of Drugs Regulations Act 2001, put cannabis under 'Schedule 1'. This is actually a category for substances that are thought to have no medicinal value. However, this is now the schedule that is currently being reviewed and doesn’t actually apply to CBD cannabis oil because it doesn’t contain the THC that would make it illegal.

    Cannabis plants are found to contain more than 100 different cannabinoids in various parts of the plant which all have varying effects on the body. Recently, the most talked about of these are CBD and THC. THC is the cannabinoid which is known for its psychoactive effects. It is the substance responsible for the 'high' feeling associated with the plant. CBD does not have this effect.

    Almost all the known cannabinoids are listed as controlled substances and also fall under the Misuse of Drugs Act. CBD, thankfully, is not on this list. Hemp can legally be grown in the UK as 'industrial hemp' because it’s a variety of the cannabis plant group that contains little to no THC but does contain CBD.

    So what does this mean for CBD oil UK wide ? Most full spectrum CBD oils in the UK will contain some traces of THC so UK CBD oil brands need to be very careful about their production. The Home Office states that CBD oil UK can contain a maximum THC amount of 0.3% and that the THC must not be easily be separated.

    You'll be pleased to know that all Cannica CBD oils are well within the law and actually contain less than 0.03% of THC. Our range of CBD oil is one of the industry-leading formulas and is manufactured using the finest plant extracts grown. The ultimate goal is as a CBD oil producer is to create high concentrated CBD oils which contain an abundance of other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids with very little to no THC.

    Being legal now in the UK, CBD oil has become very popular and has wide availability across the country and now even found in a lot of our high street shops. Unfortunately, where there is a popular and largely un-regulated market, there will always be people trying to make some fast money. A lot of new sellers have been accused of re-labelling common hemp seed oil or hemp infused olive oil and selling these products as CBD oil. These 'phony' products will contain minimal amounts of CBD if any and usually none at all. So it’s something that buyers need to be very aware of when shopping around for CBD oil in the UK. At Cannica, we sell the best CBD oil and CBD hemp oil available in the UK.

    We understand the importance of remaining completely compliant withUK CBD laws and guidelines and the ever-updating industry guidelines and specifications. Our products are found in a handful of CBD oil UK stores and on our online shop we post nation-wide and to a few other countries in the EU.

    The amount of CBD you should take will depend on a range of factors which include: your body-weight, the condition that you’re wishing to treat, your own body chemistry and the concentration of CBD oil itself. So there are a lot of variables that should be considered when deciding how much CBD to take. Be sure to talk to your doctor about CBD and appropriate dosage and any potential health risks. If your doctor can tell you how much to take then listen to their recommendations. This can be especially important of course if you’re already taking a prescription medication that also contains CBD.
