What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many natural compounds found in the hemp plant, known collectively as cannabinoids. It's a natural organic non-psychoactive cannabinoid currently showing promising results in studies all around the world.
The compound gained recognition in Ireland when tireless epilepsy campaigner Vera Twomey first fought for the medicine for her daughter Ava.
CBD is known to help, in many cases showing startling results, with:
- Chronic pain
- Panic attacks
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Reducing general inflammation in the body
How CBD Works?
The human body has receptors called CB1 and CB2, located throughout it that make up the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
These CB1 and CB2 receptors are located in the Central Nervous System, Peripheral Organs, Brain and other areas of the body. CBD works by interacting with receptors in the ECS – and it’s not alone.
Other cannabinoids interact with it as well, such as anandamide; a compound produced naturally within our bodies.
CBD Relieve will sell full spectrum CBD capsules, CBD Balm, CBD crystal isolate which can be used in cooking and baking, Full Spectrum rich hemp oil which has 88% CBD present and is a therapeutic oil and their strongest product, they will also sell CBD balms and body oils.
Is Cannabis Oil legal?
CBD has been legal for many years as it contains less than .02% THC in compliance with EU Regulations.
THC is the psycho-active component of the Cannabis Plant. CBD is the healing element of the Cannabis Plant and is perfectly legal as a food supplement.
In December 2016 a bill to legalise medical uses of cannabis passed Second Reading in Dail Eireann, which is when the healing power of CBD was thrust into the Irish public limelight.
