CBD Oil – The Basics


When it comes to CBD Oil Northern Ireland a lot of people are talking about it. Particularly following a some main stream news stories about it and its use. Few people however really understand what it is and what it is about. As a result, there is a lot of misinformation going around about what the product is and isn’t and we are here to clear this up for you.


The first mistake people make is confusing CBD Belfast with Cannabis or Marijuana. This makes them think that taking CBD Oil, or using a CBD product is going to make them high. This is definitely not the case. CBD Oil is 100% non-psychoactive. This means using it won’t get you high. Think of it in terms of this.


Cannabis is an umbrella term that refers a variety of plant. There are many different forms this plant can take. One of those is Hemp. Hemp is a variety of cannabis, but one that contains less than 0.3% THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis and is what makes it used as a recreational drug. Because the amount of THC in CBD is only a trace amount, then it will not make you high and it has no use as a hallucinogen. Plants that have higher than 0.3% THC are the ones that are referred to as Marijuana or Cannabis. Hemp is a completely separate product and hence why it is used for many different things and means that CBD Oil is completely legal.


All forms of cannabis do contain CBD though and that is where a lot of the confusion lies. Because of this link people often think that CBD will have the same effect on the body as THC and that therefore using any CBD product will get them high. This is not the case at all. There are chemical differences between the two compounds and that makes a huge difference. If you want a more common example of how the differences in chemical compounds can affect things. Look at Oranges and Lemons. Chemically the compounds that make up these fruits are very nearly the same, but there is a small difference. That small difference in the compound changes the fruit completely. No-one would argue that Oranges and Lemons are the same fruit, and yet people make the same mistake with THC and CBD.


In fact, CBD is often used to help with some of the side effects of THC use. CBD is great at reducing stress and anxiety and these can often be symptoms found in users of THC products. So, when it comes to using a CBD product, don’t worry that you are going to be out of control, or see things. All it will do is help you. You will be less stressed, less anxious, and it will also help with pain relief from a number of different sources. Therefore, all round CBD Oil Belfast is going to be a good product for you and your body.
