More and more stories related to cannabis oil are appearing in the news all the time. From pain relief, to symptom suppression, CBD oil (also known as Cannabidiol) - a legal, non-psychoactive supplement - has been at the root of many tales of successful treatments from previous users. It is fast becoming one of the most popular supplements in many countries around the world.

In this blog, Health Rack answer a range of frequently asked questions around CBD oil such as: ‘Where can I get cannabis oil?’ and “What is CBD oil used for?’.

What Is CBD Oil Used For

According to a study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, CBD oil has many therapeutic properties and can act as a natural aid for a range of conditions. CBD is said to have possible beneficial properties amongst a variety of other reported results.

Although responses to CBD oil can vary from person-to-person, unlike recreationally used cannabis, which is illegal in the UK, the extracted compounds that create CBD oil do not produce the potential negative side effects of illegal cannabis products, such as anxiety, paranoia, and the risk of chronic psychosis. The lack of psychoactive properties and potential negative side effects means that CBD oil is a supplement that may help reap many different benefits for users.

Are CBD Oil and Hemp Oil The Same?

In short, no. Although both hemp oil and CBD oil are often confused, as they both come from the same plant, they have vastly different uses. While CBD oil has been studied for its medical uses, hemp oil contains very little CBD, so is strictly nutritional. Hemp oil is often found in health products, such as soaps and shampoos, due to the high Vitamin E content within the oil.
