CBD has taken the UK by storm and to date over six million adults have put it to the test, but with a myriad of different products and brands to choose from how do we know what we are buying?
The human body contains a network of cannabinoid receptors called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system is essential for humans and is known to regulate some of the most important factors of our health and survival, including immunity. CBD can help to enhance our ECS function and ensure it is performing at its best to support our bodies.
Not all CBD is Created Equal
CBD is a naturally occurring extract derived from the Hemp plant and can be legally sold in the UK as long as its THC content is below 0.01 percent.
A CBD brand should be able to show you test certificates for products, confirming that they comply with UK regulations and that the quantity of CBD advertised on the packaging corresponds with what’s inside.
Goodbody, based in Somerset, has an extensive range of CBD products formulated in the UK and tested at an independently managed, specialist laboratory to ensure the products contain no THC, thus removing the illegal, psychoactive effects.
Seed to Shelf Traceability
Reputable CBD brands like Goodbody can trace products from the field, all the way through the production and testing process, to the store. This seed to shelf traceability gives you complete confidence in each product that you buy.
With winter on the horizon, and immunity firmly front of mind, Goodbody has just launched a combined Vitamin D and CBD oil designed to give your immune system a boost in these uncertain times. In addition, Goodbody has a range of the highest quality CBD oil drops, as well as easy-to-take capsules and gummies, balms, massage oils, bath bombs and rescue creams.
Value for money vs quality
You can vary your CBD intake by either changing the strength of CBD or by increasing the amount you take. Some brands sell products with a very low % of CBD content in large bottles, which appears to be a fantastic deal. However, the low CBD content actually makes them poor value for money compared to higher % CBD products.
It worked for me…
Restaurateur John Bergl, 62, suffered from continual pain as a result of breaking numerous bones through sport –his left shoulder was shattered and he is currently on the waiting list for a knee replacement.
According to John, “I was taking 8-10 codeine tablets a day to manage my pain and some days I was in tears trying to get up the stairs because the pain was so unbearable. A customer in my restaurant suggested I try CBD oil; however, I was initially very sceptical about whether it would make any difference. I went online and did my own research and decided I had nothing to lose by giving it a try.
“I take 3 drops of Goodbody Botanicals’ MAX strength CBD oil in the morning and 3 in the evening and have cut out pain killers ever since. My pain has been reduced by around 80%. I’m still on the waiting list for a knee replacement; however, with my current levels of pain I see no need to rush in to this, whereas before it was essential.
“I am now evangelical about the benefits of CBD and suggest anyone who is thinking about it should give it a try.”
