It’s a well-known fact that Cannabinoids are a vital part of human health. Although the Endocannabinoid system performs differently in each tissue in the body, the overall goal is always the same-to maintain stable internal conditions to survive!
It hasn’t even been 30 years since Israeli Professor Raphael Mechoulam discovered our EC system and since then, as the research continues we now know it’s the biggest network in our body-essential for mental and physical health.
Hemp was one of the most widely grown crops up until the worldwide ban on cannabis kicked in about 100 years ago. It was part of everyone’s diet! People often overlook the fact that it is an important element in human and animal nutrition due to irrational fear and the drugs policies since the ban. When, in fact, it’s one of the most beneficial plants out there.
By learning more about CBD and banishing some of the fears and myths surrounding the plant-more children, adults, and seniors alike, can live a happier and healthier life by adding CBD Life UK products into their diets and everyday routines.
CBD for Children
Since CBD cannabinoids naturally occur in the body they therefore naturally work with the endocannabinoid system to control communication between cells and mediate body function. This means CBD is perfectly safe for children.
A fear of cannabis has come about because of it’s properties of being a drug that can make you ‘high’. However, CBD is non-psychoactive so your child will categorically not get high from using it. CBD Life UK products are oil extracted and prove to have no negative effects at all. In fact, many people report amazing improvements to their general health both mentally and physically after using.
Some reports have even shown that CBD can counteract the psychoactive effects of THC (the bit that makes you ‘high’), so if your child was exposed to minor amounts via hemp oil, it should not have a negative effect. A small amount of CBD taken every day, can help to support and maintain your health in many ways.
When parents think about the use of CBD for their kids, they automatically reject the idea thinking their child is taking ‘drugs’ or getting ‘high’. This is simply not the case, CBD is only one of many compounds that are found in the cannabis plant.
Not only is CBD safe, it’s safer than a lot of things on the high street that your child will take at some point in their lives including paracetamol. If you are someone that gives your child vitamins or supplements daily for optimal health and wellness, you may be missing CBD as a crucial element for their body’s balance.
Without children, CBD might never have received as much investigation and study as it has. CBD also provides a source of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids like Omega-3, protein and it’s organically grown too. By providing such a unique nutritional content, CBD hemp oil definitely earns a place among other favourite daily vitamins and supplements to give to your family each day.
So, how then may you ask, would a child take CBD? Well at CBD Life UK we have a method of getting hemp into the body that appeals to children. Many people are put off using the products as the taste is acquired. Gummy bear sweets not only mask the taste of the hemp but by giving your children one or two of these a day it is a simple and effective way of getting CBD into the body.
CBD for the Elderly
CBD which can be taken in a multiple of ways including: oil, vape, topical creams, pastes, or edibles, is the non-psychoactive part found in marijuana. The positive effects that can be felt from using CBD could be particularly welcoming to an older person.
Given that health deterioration is an all but inevitable by-product of aging, it makes sense that the elderly community would be the perfect people to take full advantage of the whole-body therapeutic benefits of CBD oil. In many cases, the use of it can actually reduce or even replace the use of prescription drugs.
While CBD isn’t a miracle potion designed to make someone look 60 years younger, it is an amazing treatment for seniors who just generally want to achieve a healthier, more active lifestyle and improve their quality of life all round in a bid to support and maintain body function.
Additionally, rather than vaping and inhaling smoke CBD can be taken in ways more suitable to the elderly. With it being an extract, CBD can be added to balms too.
As more is understood about CBD, everyone– including parents, children, and the elderly – can begin to benefit from the many positive effects that it has to offer.
