What is CBD?
Firstly, CBD is the abbreviation of Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of at least 113 naturally occurring chemical compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. The cannabis plant has a long history of medicinal uses, dating back thousands of years and has made somewhat of a comeback in recent years. Unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is not a psychoactive cannabinoid and therefore does not make you high or feel intoxicated. It is a safe and non-addictive substance. THC is the famous chemical compound in Cannabis that brings on a high and is not legal in the UK. CBD products sold on the UK market must legally contain less than 0.2% THC. For the production of CBD products, the CBD compound is extracted from the plant and the THC removed. Products are then created and used to promote a feeling of calm and relaxation in the mind and body, amongst many other positive uses.
How does it work?
The human body has an Endocannabinoid system. This system is involved in the regulation of several physiological and cognitive processes throughout the body including mood, appetite, pain, and sleep. Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds that bind to receptors to activate the Endocannabinoid system. Endocannabinoids are produced naturally by the human body but can also be found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. THC and CBD cannabinoids interact with the cannabinoid receptors to produce physical and psychological effects on the body. The Endocannabinoid system consists of two types of receptors. The CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are mostly found in the brain and spinal cord. CB2 receptors are found in the nervous system and when activated work to reduce inflammation. Endo stands for endogenous meaning originating from within the body. Cannabinoid refers to the group of compounds that activate the system. This system is under major medical research due to its widespread therapeutic potential.

What is the difference between Hemp Seed Oil and CBD Hemp Oil?
The difference between hemp seed oil and CBD Hemp oil quite literally relies on where the oil is extracted from. Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant and CBD is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalks. The seeds of the hemp plant do not typically contain any traces of cannabinoids and therefore, Hemp Seed Oil products do not contain CBD. If you have purchased a product that contains hemp seed oil and believed this meant it contained CBD and are disappointed because you are not seeing the results you were expecting, unfortunately, you have not been using CBD. To avoid this happening again, you must look out for ingredient terminology like Full-spectrum Hemp oil Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil Terpene Rich Hemp Oil to name a few.
