The Amazing Benefits of CBD Oil

CBD is one of the most talked-about subjects of the moment. Why is this, and what is it all about? In the article that follows, we will explain what CBD is and where it comes from, why it is getting so many column-inches, and the health benefits that many claim come from using CBD. 

Dappe The Amazing Benefits of CBD Oil UK

What is CBD?

CBD is shorthand for cannabidiol. This is one of more than 100 compounds that can be extracted from the cannabis plant, and is one of a family known as cannabinoids. Already you can see why there is some controversy with regards to CBD – as cannabis, the plant itself, is not legal in the UK. 

However, CBD itself is a legally obtainable product, but we should explain that there are a number of requirements within the law that need to be met. CBD must be extracted from a strain of cannabis known as ‘industrial hemp’. The reason for this is as follows: another of the cannabinoids in cannabis is known as THC. This is the compound that, when one smokes marijuana, provides the ‘high’. THC is the psychoactive element in cannabis, while CBD is not.

The industrial hemp plant has been deliberately cultivated to be high in CBD and low in THC. In fact, for CBD oil and other products to be legal in the UK, there must be no more than 0.2% THC content, and the THC must not be easily separated from the product. The upshot of this is that while you will get the benefits of taking CBD – which we will come to shortly – it will not get you ‘high’.

In summary, then, CBD is a compound extracted from the industrial hemp plant that is used to create many products such as CBD oils, edibles and more, that is now legally available in the UK. One more thing we shall say before we move on is that, as yet, a medical licence for CBD has yet to be granted in the UK. It is, therefore, available only as a health supplement. As we shall see, there is plenty of evidence that – in fact – CBD does offer some very impressive medicinal benefits.

The Benefits of Taking CBD?

While there have been clinical trials using CBD in other countries, and there is plenty of research ongoing, it’s important that we stress we are not medically qualified! What we are telling you here is from user testimony – in great numbers, we might add – from both the UK and the USA (where CBD is very popular and, notably, where cannabis itself is gradually being legalised). So, what benefits have been claimed from taking CBD oil?

Perhaps the most common use of CBD is as a pain reliever. There is plenty of evidence from satisfied users who suffer from chronic pain – and other painful ailments and injuries – and, indeed, a report in 2017 from the World Health Organization said that there is evidence from sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, some diabetic conditions and even cancer that taking CBD helped relieve pain and suffering. The report is careful to say that as yet there is no firm, laboratory produced evidence that this is the case, but the numbers of people reporting such effects are too great to be coincidental.

Further benefits include some claims for weight loss, help with sleep patterns and – among the most interesting and promising of all – many patients who state that it helps alleviate anxiety and stress, and may also help with depression. Indeed, sufferers of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder who have tried CBD have also reported it to be successful.

In short, there is tremendous evidence from users in the UK – where numbers are thought to be around 300,000 – and the USA that CBD can help relieve pain, is of benefit to anxiety sufferers, and can also help with managing a number of chronic ailments and conditions. Research is ongoing, and those in the industry are very hopeful that positive confirmation of the medical potential for CBD is forthcoming.

How to Take CBD

CBD is available in a number of forms. It can be taken as ‘edibles’; these are sweets that are infused with CBD oil and are easy to take and discreet. There are also tinctures, but the best way of getting CBD into your system – and by far the most effective and fast – is to vape it. If you don’t vape already it really is worth considering.

The reason vaping is the most effective method of taking CBD is because you inhale the vapour – with the CBD – directly into your lungs. From there, it goes straight into the bloodstream, with the effect being almost instantaneous. If you were to take CBD as an edible, you would need to wait until it had passed through the digestive system to enter the bloodstream and take effect, which takes a lot longer.

You can buy CBD vape pens that are already loaded with the product, and they are perhaps the best way for novices to start vaping CBD oil. Also, another way is to vape or smoke hemp flower / CBD buds. This way you are ingesting CBD in its most natural form. If you want to take it by edibles, the choice is of course yours, and some people prefer this method as it is very discreet.

Summary of the Benefits of CBD

As we have explained above, it is important to remember that CBD is not yet licenced as a medicine in the UK. This is because its effects – and benefits – are still being researched on an ongoing basis. However, there is overwhelming evidence from great numbers of users both here and in the USA that CBD is a very effective pain reliever, and it is used by many people with chronic pain complaints to great effect. 

It is also useful, according to testimony, in other areas such as relieving anxiety and stress, and there are trials ongoing – using mice – that suggest it may even stop the growth of cancer cells which, if confirmed, would be a major breakthrough.

Our last word is that if you are going to take this very helpful product, please ensure you find a reputable supplier who can guarantee the quality of the CBD oil you buy. Dappe Biotech’s products are manufactured by using only the best quality organic ingredients and are all 3rd party lab tested.

DAPPE CBD Oil Product News

After much demand we have now started supplying our premium CBD vape oil in 10ml bottles. These are currently available in 200mg (2%) and 600mg (6%) strengths. We try to keep our oils as natural as possible, hence why we use MCT coconut oil as a carrier and organic natural flavours which are fully traceable. We are the only company to do this! Most other oils on the market contain Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG) Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) and synthetic flavour. PG and PEG have been proven to be toxic when vaped.
As you may have noticed, our CBD vape oil is now a much clearer colour than before. This is because we used to use a full plant extract. The challenge we had with this was that it was extremely difficult to keep the THC levels within the legal limit and still be able to provide a product high in CBD. So we decided to use a CBD Isolate instead. Isolate is still a 100% natural product which has been refined down to a very high purity. It is also broad spectrum so it also contains small amounts of CBG and CBDV. This has now allowed us to produce a more pure and cleaner product which contains zero THC. Hence we have now added a cartridge to our product range with a 30% strength, which is now the most potent CBD vape oil on the market (that we know of). The oil is extremely smooth to vape and highly effective!
Here at Dappe we always take on board customer's feedback and always listen to suggestions. We've had many customers contact us with regards to our CBD oil drops having a nasty taste. Indeed the full plant extract does have a strong distinctive taste. So we also now use a CBD isolate in our oil drops. This completely eliminates the undesirable taste. We have also added a cold pressed hemp seed oil to the ingredients which now leaves the oil with a mild nutty flavour.
Check out some of our customer reviews......

CBD Oil - What's All The Hype About?

CBD (Cannabidiol) exploded onto the scene a few years back when it stopped an epileptic seizure dead in its tracks when it was given to a patient live on TV. Since then people have started to recognise it's amazing ability to treat and prevent a variety of illnesses and conditions including chronic pain, anxiety, depression, inflammation, ADHD, seizures, MS, Parkinson's, schizophrenia and even cancer! But what is this miracle compound and how does it work?

 

 

WHAT IS CBD?

The cannabis plant contains over 84 compounds which all have medical benefits. CBD (Cannabidiol) is the 2nd most prominent of these behind THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). Both of these compounds are very similar but with one major difference; THC gets you high / stoned, CBD does not! CBD is completely non-psychoactive so it can be consumed before driving, doing sports etc and it will not impair any of your senses!

 

EFFECTS ON THE HUMAN BODY

To understand the effects of CBD (Cannabidiol) one must first understand how humans are naturally set up to respond to it. The human body, and all other mammals in fact, naturally have what's called an Endocannabinoid System. This system is regarded as the largest neurotransmitter system in the body and is responsible for maintaining and regulating mood, memory, sleep, appetite, immune function, pain perception, stress recovery, immune balance and bone development. It generally helps the body maintain a healthy biological balance. The Endocannabinoid System consists of receptors that lie on top of the cells in the human brain, organs and immune system. These receptors exist purely to accept and respond to Cannabinoids. So whether this an evolutionary miracle or a divine creation, it is an amazing thing that should be embraced! When these receptors are exposed to CBD it causes the human body to do the most positive and magical things. For example, cancer cells have been proven to commit suicide when exposed to CBD. When CBD is consumed it is incorporated into the body's natural Endocannabinoid System and binds to the cannabinoid receptors forcing tumour cells into a state of apoptosis, meaning they self-destruct without affecting healthy cells at all. Chemotherapy on the other hand is invasive and is known to damage and even destroy healthy cells. 
 

Scientists have proven that CBD does even more than benefit the Endocannabinoid System and that it's effects are far more profound. CBD also affects serotonin receptors which are important for mood, adenosine receptors which are important for the wake - sleep cycle and vanilloid receptors which are important for pain modulation.

 

 

 LEGALITY

The benefits of CBD are almost unbelievable. For too long outdated and out of touch laws have banned a plant that will probably become one of the most important medicines of all time. Fortunately this has started to change. Here in the UK the NHS have finally recognised CBD as a medicine which is a really positive step in the right direction, however our friends across the pond in the US haven't been so fortunate as CBD is still classed as a schedule I drug, which is quite ridiculous considering heroin is schedule II. 

The next few years will be very interesting with regards to the benefits and legality of CBD around the world; so watch this space.
