WHAT IS CBD?

The term CBD stands for cannabidiol. This is the second most relevant cannabinoid of the hundreds of active ingredients found in the cannabis plant. CBD is one of the most essential components of medical cannabis, and it's derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a first cousin of the marijuana plant. CBD by itself does not cause the "entourage" or "high" effect". According to a report from the World Health Organization, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential no matter how often one might consume it. At Oxocan we introduced a range of premium full-spectrum CBD oils and CBD capsules. Our CBD oils include CBD Oil 5% (500mg) CBD Oil 10% (1,000mg), CBD Oil 15% (1,500mg), and CBD Oil 20% (2,000). Our CBD Capsules are available in 10MG of CBD per capsule, making them a fantastic alternative for those who prefer a flavour-free and perfectly measured dose of CBD. All of our products have been manufactured to the highest standards, in a British GMP approved facility assuring excellent quality control. 

WHAT IS THC?

THC is amongst the main ingredients found in cannabis. This is the psychoactive compound in cannabis that produces the "entourage" sensation. It’s also available in a variety of options including CBD Oils, edibles, beverages and capsules. At Oxocan, our CBD oils contain well below 0.02% THC which is the legal limit for most countries in the EU, Canada and the US. Our CBD capsules on the other hand are 100% THC-free. HOW IS CBD FORMED? CBD oil is formed by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant using a number of procedures including extraction through the Co2 process or ethanol, then diluting it with a carrier oil, such as our organic hemp seed oil. Cannabinoids or CBD oil can interact with a vast network of receptors that exist inside all of us. It is a remarkable option for those who are looking for relief from pain, influence sleep, appetite, mood and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical medications.

HOW DOES CBD WORK?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a widespread neuromodulatory system that plays important role in the central nervous system (CNS) development, synaptic plasticity, and the response to endogenous and environmental insults. The endocannabinoid system or ECS exists in all mammals, including dogs, cats, and even non-mammals such as dolphins. Our main cannabinoid receptors include the CB1 and CB2 receptors.

HOW DOES CBD AFFECT A PERSON?

A person's endocannabinoid system is unique to them, and because of this, the impact of CBD will most likely differ from person to person. One needs to consider the concentration and dose strengths. Generally speaking, the stronger a CBD oil, or the higher the dose, the stronger the effect. The easiest way to find out how CBD makes you feel is by trying it yourself. Luckily, the compound is non-toxic and it won't make you high and it's easy to fit into your busy day. 

EVIDENCE OF CBD HEALTH BENEFITS

According to a Harvard University study, CBD has been used for a wide variety of health issues, but the strongest scientific evidence is for its effectiveness in treating some of the cruellest childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which typically don’t respond to anti-seizure medications. In numerous studies, CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and, in some cases, it was able to stop them altogether. A couple of years ago, the FDA approved the first-ever cannabis-derived medicine for these conditions, Epidiolex, which contains CBD. In most cases, CBD is used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia and studies show that CBD may help with both falling asleep and keeping asleep. Additionally, CBD is known to help with different types of chronic pain. A recent study carried out by the European Journal of Pain illustrated that when CBD is applied to the skin of animals, it has the potential to help lower the pain and inflammation caused by arthritis.

IS CBD LEGAL?

CBD products are legally allowed for sale in almost all member states in the European Union, including the UK, Canada and the majority of the U.S. Cannabidiol is not listed among the “controlled substances” under the UK Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and the European Union allows the cultivation of industrial hemp for CBD production. CBD products, such as balms, creams, oils, and beverages, are easily accessible online and offline. However, it is important to check the THC levels on the label and our products are well below the legal limits. The maximum allowed level of THC should not be over 0.2%.
