There has been a lot of talk about CBD (Cannabidiol) recently so I thought it would be a good idea to explore what CBD is about and if it was a suitable product to sell on the Vegan Collective website.
CBD is a compound which comes from the hemp plant which is part of the cannabis sativa family. Hemp and cannabis contain some of the same compounds, but hemp does not contain the compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the compound in cannabis that changes the chemistry in your brain to make you high. That’s why hemp is used to create CBD oil instead of cannabis, because it won’t have the side effects of getting high and avoids the risk of addiction.
Scientific research into CBD claims to help with the following:
- Improve mental health issues including depression and anxiety.
- Manage pain relief caused by fibromyalgia and other conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
- Reduce overall inflammation in the body which could help with acne.
Including CBD products on our website seemed the right move to make. CBD is becoming more and more popular, even Ben and Jerrys would like to add it to their ice cream, but as the United States’ Food and Drug Administration prohibits the use of CBD in food and drink, they cannot do this at present.
