Dr Christian on 'is CBD Safe?'

CBD taken on its own (without any THC) is safe and shows no addictive properties. This changes if the product contains THC. 

The purity and composition of CBD UK products are important to know and manufacturers that demonstrate good production quality (usually via a Certificate of Analysis) should be your preferred choice.

BRITISH CANNABIS Answers Your Questions​

Is CBD safe to use?

Consumers have been asking questions about CBD safety since it gained mainstream acceptance in the health and wellbeing sector.

Cannabidiol (or CBD) is a nontoxic extract of the cannabis plant that has been proven to treat a wide range of conditions, including anxiety and migraines. One of CBD’s most well-known effects is its ability to calm down, which is a major reason for its popularity.

CBD is most commonly sold as an oil. However, it can also be purchased as an extract or a vaporized oil. 

CBD is extracted from cannabis plants to make the oil.

It can be found in many products online and in shops, including dietary supplements and bath soaks as well as drinks and food.

Is it safe? CBD is safe when it is produced by licensed manufacturers and is used according to the correct guidelines. 

According to a 2018 World Health Organization report, CBD is safe and well-tolerated. There is no evidence that CBD has caused any health problems for the public.

There are many questions about safety due to confusion between CBD (the intoxicating extract of the cannabis plant) and THC (the intoxicating extract that produces a high). THC is still illegal in the UK. CBD products are legal in the UK.

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in cannabis plants that affect neurotransmitter release and cannabinoid receptors. They have different effects on the body, and they are concentrated in different parts of the cannabis plant.

CBD, one of these compounds, has been shown to act throughout the body including the brain. It is becoming a popular extract for its health benefits. 

It does not produce intoxicating effects like THC.

Numerous studies have shown that CBD has many positive benefits.

A recent study found that CBD oil can help with healthy weight loss. The study, published in the journal Molecular and Cellular found that CBD oils can cause “fat browning”, a process whereby white fats associated with obesity and diabetes are transformed into brown fat cells.

These compounds are believed to help weight loss by helping your body burn extra calories through thermogenesis.

Men’s Health says CBD also “reduces expression of proteins involved with creating new fat cells and it increases the number of mitochondria within your brown fat cells.” Scientists suggest that this could increase their ability to reduce fat.

Harvard Health Publishing (HHP) released a report that showed CBS’s effectiveness in treating certain types of epilepsy in children. These seizures are not usually treated with antiseizure medication.

Clinical trials have shown that CBD can also help with insomnia and severe anxiety. One study published in Molecular Neurobiology showed that CBD can reduce depression within a matter of hours. 

The average time it takes to take commercial antidepressants is about a week.

It is also believed that CBD can reduce chronic pain. This is because it can be applied to skin conditions such as neuropathic pain and arthritis. 

This report cautions against using CBD to treat chronic pain. Further human studies are required to verify claims that CBD can control it.

Bottom line: Studies have shown that CBD can be used correctly, and purchased from a licensed and reputable producer such as British Cannabis, which is one of the most prominent independent CBD producers in the UK.

However, it is important to consult a licensed medical professional if there are any questions, particularly if you are taking other medications that may affect CBD use.

Is CBD safe? Although there is a lot of research going on about CBD products, it is clear that CBD has many positive effects.
