When CBD oil hit the shelves of a high street health store, Holland and Barrett, we knew it was getting more mainstream. Before then lots of people didn’t know about CBD.
They didn’t know what it did, where it came from and even whether it was legal or not. CBD oil has been on the market long before Holland and Barrett started stocking it though. Let’s take a look at a brief history of CBD, what it can do, who it can help and where you might buy it from.
CBD before Holland and Barrett
CBD oil has been on the high street shelves of Holland and Barrett for just a few months. However, it has been an alternative medicine for thousands of years. Queen Victoria was even said to use CBD to relieve pain.
Where does CBD come from?
CBD comes from the cannabis plant. This plant has lots of stigma around it due to its psychoactive effects. However, there are many compounds in the plant and it is only THC which has the psychoactive effects which leave users feeling ‘high’. CBD is extracted from the plant in the form of an oil or a powder. When used in isolation, with either none or a legal amount of THC it has various benefits.
What can CBD help with?
CBD has been known to help with various conditions and illnesses. These include mental disorders as well as physical ones. Such as:
- Anxiety and depression
- Sleep disorders
- Cancer symptoms
- Chronic pain
