Why has CBD become popular?

We all know the feeling of our minds and bodies seemingly letting us down with increasing regularity.

Joints ache, sleep is inconsistent, thinking is foggy and we frequently feel on edge. It is all too familiar to open the bathroom cabinet and see an ever-mounting collection of remedies to help us through the day. But what if many of these remedies are not as effective as a natural, organic and easily accessible plant extract?

Cannibidiol (CBD) is derived from the hemp plant, grown all over the world for its many practical uses and health benefits. CBD has been used for its healing properties for thousands of years. As early as 2737BC, Chinese Emperor Sheng Nung made an infused tea to aid with a variety of ailments including memory, malaria, rheumatism, and gout.

Today CBD is used by a fast-growing community across the world who value its natural benefits to help stimulate and rebalance the central nervous system and address conditions such as anxiety, arthritis, eczema, insomnia, migraines, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

For many years, society has been wary of CBD’s association with THC, which is the psychoactive element that makes the user feel high. However, the good news is that the law now requires all CBD products to contain such a low amount of THC, less than 0.2%, that it has no psychoactive effect at all. This means CBD gives you all the natural benefits without the feeling of being high. You can function clearly and freely.

CBD & You specialises in curating the highest quality products, from a variety of manufacturers, all tested thoroughly, quality assured and designed to be as effective as possible. It is very easy to take CBD. You can apply it to your skin with balm or spray, have a lovely hot soak with a bath bomb, take a few drops of tincture or nibble on some tasty edibles.

With an online store and a dedicated Hampstead shop, just like an old-fashioned apothecary, CBD & You provides a one-to-one, personalised, and friendly service, advising on what will work best for you.

CBD & You’s best-selling range is from CBD Living, whose market-leading products are tested in three separate labs, created with nano-technology that improves absorption, and contain no THC at all, which is likely why it is the fastest-growing CBD brand in North America.

Why take CBD? There are three broad reasons people do;

The ‘Chill’ – a sense of calm linked with the removal of pre-existing feelings of stress or anxiety. Nervous flyers find CBD gummies take the edge off.

Pain management – soothing arthritic, neuralgic and inflammatory pain. Our Freeze roll on is incredibly popular for those suffering from migraines, fibromyalgia and arthritis.

The ‘Reset’ – mammals have an endocannabinoid system, providing a regulatory function. Life’s stresses can knock this system out of kilter. Taking CBD supplements rebalances the system, encouraging equilibrium and reducing negative symptoms.

CBD users describe an overall sense of wellbeing and calm that everyone can benefit from.
