A General Introduction to CBD.


Cannabidiol (CBD) is an active ingredient in cannabis derived from the hemp plant.

Hemp grows wild in Central Asia and was first cultivated in China from 3000 BC for its fibre and seeds.

The plant has males and females and the male is generally taller and makes for good fibres, whilst the female resin is much sought after for its medicinal qualities.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

THC is the main psychoactive compound in marijuana that gives the high sensation.

CBD is a nonpsychoactive compound. That means it doesn’t produce the “high” associated with THC.

Because hemp contains more CBD than THC, it’s the ideal source for CBD oil.

Note:  CBD oil may contain small amounts of THC because it’s present in the hemp plant. CBD can have no more than 0.2 percent THC to be legally sold in the UK.

All Veganpicks CBD products meet this strict UK requirement.

The basic medical benefits generally accepted about CBD products are :

1,  Healthy Heart

CBD can protect against vascular damage from Diabetes and general inflammation. CBD may also nourish the heart and reduce stress.

2, Sleep Improvement

CBD should improve the sleep cycle and prolong the length of sleep. CBD does not, however, increase drowsiness but may stimulate more alertness.

3, Stress, Anxiety and Depression.

Social anxiety should  be decreased and, in turn, may produce an anti-anxiety effect.

In addition to the above fantastic benefits CBD can, in most cases, help with pain , muscle issues, glaucoma and general nausea.
