We’re glad you stopped by, because we can answer all this and more, and introduce you to The Clean Living Company CBD 15%
What is CBD oil?
CBD is one of the several components of the cannabis plant. It is non-intoxicating and is believed to have many therapeutic effects on the human body and mind, without causing any dependency. CBD is not to be confused with Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is the mind altering component that can get you high. THC is the element that has caused Cannabis plants – hemp and marijuana – to be classified as controlled substances. CBD is mixed with a carrier oil to create CBD oil, which makes it easy to consume (other forms are available eg gummies for kids). CBD oil with less than 0.2%THC, is completely safe and legal in the UK, and many other countries.
Although it seems as though the world is recently experiencing an awakening to the many benefits of Cannabidiol (that’s what CBD stand for), humans have actually been wise to this natural healing gem for millennia. Ancient civilisations were tapping the cannabis plant (from which CBD is derived) for it’s goodness long before pharmacies and doctors prescription pads were on the scene. We as a species, have even evolved better cannabinoid receptors as a result. In fact, according to the findings of several major scientific studies, human breast milk naturally contains the same cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, which are vital for proper human development. So our bodies are super compatible with CBD.
(some of ) The benefits of CBD oil
An answer to depression and anxiety
Anxiety and depression are common mental health issues that affect hundreds of thousands of people. The usual pharmaceutical treatments prescribed by doctors for these issues can have unwanted side effects, like drowsiness, weight gain and even dependency. Studies have shown that CBD can reduce anxiety for people with a range of disorders, including: Social anxiety disorder, general anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder and more. All without any unwanted side effects.
In one Brazilian study, 57 men received either oral CBD or a placebo 90 minutes before they underwent a simulated public speaking test. The researchers found that a 300-mg dose of CBD was the most effective at significantly reducing anxiety during the test. CBD is even safe to use for children and has been successfully used to treat children with PTSD.
- Reduce pain and inflammation
This is a huge endorsement for CBD, as inflammation can be the cause of a vast span of knock-on health problems, from arthritis to digestive problems and a million things in between. Therefore reducing the catchall issue of inflammation has a wonderful payoff.
CBD can be a powerful pain reliever too. We know that the cannabis plant has been used to treat pain as far back as 2900BC and studies show the CBD component alone can interact with certain neurotransmitters and receptors in the brain to reduce pain.
- Type 1 diabetes
Thanks to CBD’s ability to reduce inflammation, a research study published in 2016 by Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation, found that CBD can ease inflammation in the pancreas.
This in turn can calm immune system attacks on the pancreatic cells, which cause Type 1 Diabetes.
- Skin conditions
CBD oil has a high potential for treating skin conditions, like eczema, by encouraging abnormal cell death. And thanks again to the anti inflammatory properties, it can also calm psoriasis.
Studies have shown that taking CBD can help to lower the production of sebum, which is often the culprit for acne. So if you suffer from acne breakouts, CBD could be your answer to a clear complexion. You can combine it with a daily dose of The Clean Living Company Keto Collagen Powder, which can reduce the signs of ageing on your skin, for a double skin fix.
- Ease epilepsy
This is truly one of the miracle powers of CBD. CBD oil is having life changing effects on patients, children in particular, who suffer from seizures attributed to epilepsy. In fact, conclusive evidence and case after case have shown that people who suffer from severe seizures, who have tried every pharmaceutical drug and treatment under the sun, have experienced exceptional relief with the use of CBD oil. They have reduced the amount of seizures dramatically, improved memory function and are able to live much fuller lives as a result.
- Cancer fighter
CBD has been found to help reduce symptoms related to cancer and side effects related to cancer treatment, like nausea, vomiting and pain.
Studies are still under way regarding anti-tumor effects, but the results are promising, showing prevention of the spread of breast, prostate, brain, colon and lung cancer.
- Heart health benefits
Recent research has linked CBD with several benefits for the heart and circulatory system, including the ability to lower high blood pressure. High blood pressure leads to a bunch of further health issues down stream such as; higher risks of stroke, heart attack and metabolic syndrome. So reducing your blood pressure with this natural remedy could save you from these serious health risks down the line.
