CBD – It’s an relatively new product, but how can it benefit you? Most people haven’t even heard of it and yet it’s starting to appear in conversations around sports, food and beauty products.
The most sensational aspect is its derived from the cannabis plant, which has previously been associated with laziness and overeating. However, CBD takes some of the beneficial aspects of ‘weed’ and makes use out of them for positive ends.
It’s mainly used in the form of an oil derived from industrial hemp, which contains more CBD than our traditionally crossbred strains of cannabis hemp used for smoking. This is altogether a different product from dried marijuana flowers, after all. CBD oil can be bought at varying concentrations and is generally eaten or vaporised into the lungs.
