WHAT IS CBD OIL?
Given you’re here on Handpicked, we’re guessing you’ve heard the hype around CBD (aka cannabidiol). It seems to be everywhere at the moment, right?!
According to a recent study, it’s thought there are 1.3 million regular CBD users in the UK, with another 6 million people that have tried it in the last year.
So why all the excitement?
In short, a huge amount of people are experiencing a range of health and wellbeing benefits from using CBD oil products. Those positive experiences lead people to tell their friends, who then try CBD, and the buzz continues.
Importantly, the science is catching up with the anecdotal evidence too. As cannabis moves from an illegal ‘taboo’ substance into the popular mainstream, scientists are able to carry out a lot more research into the potential therapeutic benefits of CBD (as well as other cannabis compounds).
So, what exactly is CBD?
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is a natually-occuring cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol, as CBD is officially known, was first discovered in 1942 and is just one of over 100 such cannabinoids found in cannabis, the most famous of all being the high-inducing “THC”.

For a full intro to CBD you can check out our Complete Beginners Guide to CBD. Alternatively carry on reading below as we dig into CBD oil in more detail.
The first step to making CBD oil is to put the cannabis (or hemp) plant through an extraction process. There are several extraction methods, but the current best practise is via the (more expensive) CO2 supercritical method, which is widely regarded as the cleanest and most efficient, and thus produces the better quality oils.
The cannabis extraction process turns the plant material into a useable oil that contains CBD. Importantly this oil also contains all of the other cannabinoids and terpenes within the plant, and is therefore referred to as Full Spectrum CBD oil.
Full spectrum is seen as the most effective type of CBD oil, as it’s thought the therapeutic benefits of CBD oil are enhanced in the presence of other cannabinoids and terpenes. This is known as the “entourage effect”.
That said, it’s also quite common to take the extraction process a step or two further:
Broad Spectrum CBD Oil – this is the same as full spectrum except the THC cannabinoid is completely removed. Given THC’s current legal status, broad spectrum CBD oil is a great choice for those whose professions carry a zero THC policy, for example professional athletes.
CBD Isolate – this is pure CBD with all of the other cannabinoids and terpenes removed.
CBD OIL BENEFITS
Currently there is only one CBD prescription drug on the market, called Epidiolex, and it’s used to treat two rare, severe forms of epilepsy.
However, CBD oil is being reported anecdotally and in early scientific research to help with a wide range of ailments from chronic pain to anxiety, depression and insomnia.
Whilst we’re still very much in the early days of saying anything definitively about the benefits of CBD, the curent evidence suggests it could be a genuine natural treatment for several common health issues.
WHAT IS CBD OIL GOOD FOR?
Current research suggests CBD oil could help to relieve the symptoms of many common health issues including chronic pain, anxiety, depression and insomnia. Whilst the research is still in its early stages, the inital signs are certainly positive.
It’s thought CBD works in the human body by interacting with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
The ECS, which is also a relatively new discovery and still in the preliminary research stage, is thought to be responsible for controlling balance in our bodies (known as homeostasis). Meaning it is involved in regulating physiological and cognitive processes such as appetite, mood, pain-sensation, sleep and memory.
When we introduce CBD into our bodies it’s able interact with our ECS in a unique way. And it’s the result of these unique interactions that has scientist around the world very excited by the potential therapeutic benefits of CBD oil.
DOES CBD OIL GET YOU HIGH?
CBD oil does not get you high. It is the cannabinoid THC that is intoxicating, making you feel ‘high’. And it’s for that reason that CBD oil products must contain less that 1mg of THC in order to remain legal.
On Handpicked CBD we ensure all of our CBD products come with a 3rd part lab report to ensure they do not contain more than the legal limit of THC.
IS CBD OIL SAFE?
All current evidence points to CBD oil being safe. So much so that the World Health Organisation’s report on CBD confirmed it as both safe and non-addictive.
ABOUT HANDPICKED CBD | THE UK’S #1 CBD MARKETPLACE
