Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a botanical extract from hemp plants (rather than marijuana plants) which means you won’t get high using CBD products. But it also means that you don’t have to meet a dodgy bloke in a dark-windowed Vauxhall Corsa to acquire them. After it has been extracted from the plant, CBD is diluted with a ‘carrier’ oil, often coconut or hemp seed oil. Et voila.

This is where things get interesting. Your brain and body houses a communications system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) – named after the cannabis plant that led to its discovery – which is involved in regulating a bunch of really important physiological and cognitive processes, like appetite, sleep, immune system, mood and memory.

It’s weed, but not as you know it. You might already know that the cannabis plant contains more than 100 different naturally occurring compounds, known as cannabinoids. Hemp is a term used to classify varieties of cannabis that contain 0.3 per cent or less of THC – the psychoactive cannabinoid that makes you high – while marijuana refers to strains that contain more than 0.3 per cent.

What Is CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD oil, is one of the fastest growing industries in the UK. No longer relegated to dropper bottles and capsules, you can slather the stuff on your hair in shampoo, chew it in vitamin gummies, and drink it in water, wine, or cold-brew coffee. You can even buy CBD-laced treats for your dog.

Marketed as a miracle remedy, manufacturers contend that CBD oil provides relief from everything from chronic pain to depression and anxiety, but are those claims accurate? MH takes a closer look at the cannabis based phenomenon.

Without getting too hung up on the science, research indicates that CBD interacts with endocannabinoids, the chemical messengers of the ESC, to have a protective, anti-inflammatory effect on your noggin.
