Cannabis oil, specifically CBD oil, has been gaining popularity in recent years for its potential health benefits. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant that is believed to have various therapeutic properties. On the other hand, THC, another compound found in cannabis, is known for its psychoactive effects. THC can cause a sense of euphoria but can also cause other sensations, like paranoia. CBD oil should not contain more than 0.3% THC, so it does not produce the same psychoactive effects as THC.

Cannabidiol (CBD) may help dilate the airways, but more studies are needed before it can be widely recommended for COPD treatment. Limited research indicates CBD oil contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may alleviate chronic pain. Additionally, some studies suggest that CBD may help with anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

Cannabidiol — better known as CBD — seems to be everywhere: in gummies, lotions, oils, lollipops, vapes, toothpaste, even a high-end sports drink. CBD is everywhere. From corner stores and bars to medical marijuana dispensaries, it's being offered for its reputed ability to relieve pain and promote relaxation.

However, not all experts are convinced of the benefits of cannabis oil. Scientists say there is no evidence that cannabis products have any positive effect and are 'possibly harmful'. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional before using cannabis oil for medicinal purposes.

An oral oil containing THC and CBD reduced tics and psychiatric comorbidity of tics in patients with severe Tourette syndrome in a small study, showing promise for the potential therapeutic effects of cannabis oil on certain neurological conditions.

Struggling to fall asleep and stay asleep can greatly impact a person's life. Sleep quality and restful sleep have health impacts on our minds and our bodies. CBD oil has been suggested as a natural remedy to help improve sleep quality and treat insomnia.

However, CBD is an exception and is completely legal in the UK, “provided it has been derived from an industrial hemp strain that is EU-approved”, or comes from a licensed cannabis farm. It is important to research the legal of cannabis oil in your region before purchasing or using it.
