Buying CBD Oil in the UK

Cannabidiol, CBD, is an essential component of medical cannabis; it is derived directly from the hemp plant, a cousin of the marijuana plant. It is just one of hundreds of components in marijuana, meaning CBD alone does not cause a "high". CBD oil is natural and safe, and users have claimed it enhances the condition of their skin, aids good digestion and improves their mood.

Other possible long-term benefits, for example maintaining brain health or protecting against bone disease, are among the reasons why this product is gaining popularity.

Very few people in England and Wales are likely to get CBD on prescription as a cannabis based medicine. So far, the Government has approved two cannabis-based medicines that can be prescribed by a doctor: Epidyolex and Sativex.

Currently, they are likely only to be prescribed when all other treatments have proved not suitable or haven’t worked for certain medical conditions. These include rare, severe forms of epilepsy, vomiting or nausea caused by chemotherapy, people with muscle stiffness and spasms caused by multiple sclerosis (MS).

According to the WHO, "In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD."

Prescribing medicines of cannabis-based products is restricted to clinicians listed on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council, and any decision to prescribe must consider GMC guidance and the relevant NHS Trust governance procedures for unlicensed medicines.

What can CBD help with?

As well as the medical conditions we mention above, according to extensive existing research, CBD can help with managing many other health disorders including:

Insomnia: If you have difficulty falling asleep, and staying asleep, you can lose motivation and become irritable. Regular administration of CBD can help with managing insomnia if you take a recommended dose shortly before bed.

Chronic Pain: This condition is typically caused by inflammation or damaged nerves, often affecting the back, joints, and neck. CBD may help to reduce pain by acting on a variety of biological processes in the body by acting as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and analgesic. CBD may also reduce the anxiety associated living with chronic pain often experience.

Acne: CBD oil may help reduce various types of acne due to its ability to adjust how the body creates sebum, the waxy, oily substance the skin makes. CBD oil also has anti-inflammatory properties, and aids sebum to protect our skin from the outside world.

Anxiety: Anxiety disorders are prevalent throughout the world. Stress, trauma and drug abuse are just some of the causes of this condition, but regular CBD ingestion can help manage it naturally by activating some serotonin receptors, and the serotonin system is associated with alleviating anxiety.

CBD works in the body by interacting with our endocannabinoid system. Each person’s biochemistry reacts differently so if you haven’t taken it before, it’s best to start on a low dosage and gradually increase it. An effective dose can start at 5 mg per day, and Government guidelines state you should stay within a maximum of 75 mg per day.

You can find out what works best for you by starting with a small dose. Do not start immediately with a high dose, because you will never know if a lower dose would have been effective. Our range starts with 1000mg Full Spectrum CBD Extract 10ml boosted with pure CBD DISTILLATE (10%) increasing to a super high concentrate 5000mg Full Spectrum CBD Extract 10ml (50%) HIGHEST STRENGTH.

There are two ways in which you can increase the dose: You can take more drops, or you can take the same number of drops of a higher potency CBD oil. By beginning with just a few drops per day of a low potency oil, and then working your way up will avoid unnecessary expenditure.

The benefits of buying CBD oil without a prescription

The Government policy in the UK makes getting CBD on prescription unobtainable and limiting, which is why most people buy CBD directly instead. Buying without a prescription enables you to access a wider range of CBD products, and gain experience as a user to work out what’s right for you.

What is the difference between THC and CBD? CBD oil comes from the flowers of the cannabis plant and does not contain the psychoactive substance THC. Cannabis oil comes from the flowers, leaves and stalks of the cannabis plant. It can be sold in the UK as a food supplement but not as a medicine.

All our CBD medicinal products are manufactured in the UK under the best and highest conditions possible for those that are not prescribed CBD. Our quality control program is strict and detailed, with the phytonutrient content confirmed and certified by independent laboratory tests.

Are there any side effects of taking CBD?

CBD based medicine is normally well-tolerated, but like any other ingested substance, it can cause side effects. Some consumers of CBD may experience unwanted results such as such as dry mouth, diarrhoea, reduced appetite, drowsiness and fatigue. There is some evidence that CBD can also interact with other medicines you're taking, such as blood thinners, so it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor or the person prescribing medical CBD.
