Lately, you've likely seen Cannabidiol or CBD infused in everything from honey, to moisturisers and tampons...
But despite being the most-buzzed-about wellness ingredient right now, it could also be the most poorly understood. To clear up the confusion, we sought out advice from the experts at The Health Store, to see if they could shine some light on CBD and its many related products, they've also shared a discount code for Irish Tatler readers, more info below!
Here are 5 reasons you should start using CBD products every day:
1. CBD is an anti-inflammatory
Found in the resinous stalks, leaves and flowers of hemp plants, CBD is a naturally-sourced, non-psychoactive compound (i.e. it won’t make you high) and when added to products in oil form, it may act as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory, helping with inflammation, oxidisation, and pain, as well as providing soothing sensations.
CBD can come in oil, capsules, tablets, powders and skincare forms and you might see it on listed on product labels as the following terms: CBD, hemp CBD, and phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil.

2. it has more benefits than hemp oil
Sure, hemp oil and CBD both come from the same plant, but beyond that, they're entirely different. Coming from two different parts of the hemp plant, hemp oil (pressed from the hemp plant's seeds) can be compared to many other carrier oils, in that it's high in antioxidants, omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, but contains no cannabinoids — not CBD or THC (tetrahydrocannabinol is the psychoactive compound in marijuana that gives the high sensation).
Plainly speaking, if you're trying to reap the maximum benefits of CBD oil, hemp seed oil won’t deliver, so it’s key to know what you want and to check the product label.

3. it could help control your mood and sleep
CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, a regulatory system that helps control everything from mood to memory, stress to sleep and to reproduction.
Traditionally, it has been used for centuries to aid pain relief to muscle aches, arthritis, joint pain, neuropathic conditions, headaches, and to aid skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, even sunburn, and bug bites when used topically.

4. it's safe to use and non-addictive
Most of the CBD products you might buy at The Health Store are standardised to contain a regulated dose of Cannabidiol, and as a substance, CBD is not addictive.
Current evidence suggests that the active ingredient in CBD oil is safe for most, but it's worth noting it could have serious interactions if it is taken with other medications.

5. it could prevent disease
Still in its infancy in medical-terms, a lot more research needs to be done into the long-term effects of CBD, but there is growing evidence that suggests the much-hyped compound plays a role in the management of certain health conditions.
Many people chose to take CBD for its potential in disease prevention or health promotion, due to its high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
