The UK CBD market is expected to fall just short of 1 billion pounds in 2025 - this is roughly the equivalent to the entire UK herbal market in 2016, according to a June 2019 report form the Centre of Medicinal Cannabis.
For a market with this growth, many people still don't understand what CBD is or how it works. Once people have more awareness of CBD, the industry will only have further growth. So, as a premium CBD supplier who cares hugely about the cannabis community, we feel it is important to provide reliable education.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol and is only one of the many active compounds found in the cannabis plant. It is also the second cannabinoid - next to THC that occurs in abundance. However, unlink THC, CBD has no intoxicating effects so it wont make you feel ‘high’.
CBD can be used in many different ways such as tinctures, capsules, edibles and topical At first many people were skeptical of this natural compound and questioned whether it could effectively treat such a wide range of conditions.
Lets dive into how CBD interacts with our bodies to understand how it can benefit peoples everyday lives.
How Does CBD Work?
Cannabinoids are capable to interacting with the body and the brain through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The endocannabinoid system is a complex network of cell receptors and neurotransmitters that are responsible for maintaining homeostasis and balance in the body. Cannabinoid receptors are spread throughout the entire body, with the highest concentration in the central and peripheral nervous system, and in the immune system. The endocannabinoid system improved the communication between all those systems.
The endocannabinoid system also controls a range of biological functions, such as sleep, mood, temperature control, immune response, pain and pleasure perception, fertility, memory and appetite. When things go wrong with our heath, it is our endocannabinoid system which is responsible for restoring the balance in our body by releasing its natural cannabinoids.
With all the scientific jargon, lets clarify what this shows. The research into the endocannabinoid system has shown that our bodies were designed to work with cannabinoids and they can even be considered essential to our overall health and wellness.
