Today, we’re talking about fitness and CBD. When CBD first hit the scene in the UK, I have to say I had my concerns about it. I am after all an ex-police officer and my first thought was ‘is this cannabis in a liquid form’? I had so many questions and I had to do lots of research into this product which I can now share with you. We’ll chat about things like what CBD oil can be used for and which product you should use. I am currently trying CBII CBD oil 200mg but more about that later.
What is CBD?
Well, it has many names. Hemp, cannabis, marijuana, these are all names for flowering plants which belong to the Cannanacae family. The main ones are Cannabis sativa L., Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. Each of these plants are made up of hundreds of different chemical compounds which are known as Cannabinoids. You may have heard of Cannabidiol (CBD) or Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
CBD is Cannabidiol. This is the non-psychoactive compound found in the Cannabis sativa L. plant, more commonly known as the hemp plant. This is completely legal and frequently used in the UK.
THC is Tetrahydrocannabinol. This is the psychoactive compound of the Cannabis sativa L. plant. This is the part of the plant that causes you to experience a ‘high’ and is the part of the plant that is illegal in the UK in high quality. In the UK, you cannot sell any cannabis product with a THC compound of more than 0.05%. This may change in the future, but these are the current regulations.
Why use CBD oil?
CBD is said to be a natural pain killer and it has anti-inflammatory properties. Working out as hard as I do, my muscles can get very sore. As you know, I love mountain biking which can lead to injuries when I fall off (which happens more than I would like, but it’s a hazard of an amazing sport). CBD is a fantastic natural pain killer that helps to ease the aches and pains. It also helps when I have anxiety and insomnia. I use it like I’d use my foam roller when I’m in need of a bit of extra TLC. I like that it is a natural product and I find that it really helps me.
There have been so many studies on CBD and its benefits. It has been proven to help people with epilepsy, cancer and arthritis. The internet is full of studies on the topic and it makes for really interesting reading. The case study of CBD and cancer is particularly interesting. It showed that using CBD slowed down the growth of cancer cells in the body. It’s incredible that oils like these can ease people’s suffering. CBD has also been used for the treatment of acne. There seems to be no end to the benefits of this product.
