CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the most well-known compounds that is found in Marijuana the other being THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) unlike THC CBD doesn’t get you high or stoned and has been in the research stage for over 30 years by both American Researchers and English Researchers

Although a lot of different official an unofficial research institutes as well as organisations have made lofty claims about how CBD can help you in a medical way but without extensive research and human trials we can’t actually validate or verify any of the claims that have been made or will be made.

Although the USA has at the state level authorised and legalised the consumption and production of Marijuana based products at the federal level it is still illegal to grow and consume these products.

If you are looking for CBD Oil UK there are a lot of choices but as with all these unknown and untested products that are currently are not regulated (not entirely true the UK has the regulation of only 0.2% THC being allowed in the product due to psychoactive effects of THC compared to CBD)

In the UK it is now legal to buy CBD products across the counter as “Health Stores” such as Holland and Barret and a lot of other “Health Supplement” stores and shops both local and national are allowed to offer CBD products but in very limited quantities per ml.

In the UK last year the CBD market was worth over £1bn and USA market was over $2.4bn  but remember this is just the over the counter values, people on sites such as Facebook, Gumtree and other large reaching websites allow people to trade in unregulated products it also means that the value of these sales are not recorded so the actual size of the market is still of an unknown number and the percentage purchased via regulated and unregulated nature is also unknown.

Which ever way, if you are looking to try CBD products do your research and make sure that the store you are buying from either official or from one of the sites we mentioned has good and honest reviews and also feedback that looks and feels legitimate. Ask friends or family if they have any recommendations that you could try before you try.
