CBD Oil has enjoyed much popularity in recent years. Think tanks like “Global Markets Insights” predict the CBD Oil market will be worth $ 89 billion by 2026 (Health Europa). One particular area of growth has been in Europe who account for 25% of global Hemp cultivation to supply to manufacturers. These companies convert the raw material into a myriad of CBD products such as Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, CBD spray, CBD tinctures and CBD capsules.
Much of this growth can be attributed to the lack of psychoactive benefits found in Hemp Oil. This is because Hemp Oil contains only 0.2% THC whereas so called cannabis oil has much more THC and is used recreationally. This is due to cannabis oil being sourced from the bud of the Marijuana plant, which most people can distinguish from Hemp plant as being concentrated with much THC content. This has urged many European countries to legalise CBD Oil entirely as a food supplement.
Although there is talk of changing the status of CBD Oil to a novel food like in the UK, consumers have sustained trust in their favourite brands to support them through various issues.
In this article we will explore the major health benefits of CBD Oil responsible for the industry’s market growth and dedicated consumer following.
Firstly the theory is that Hemp Oil works with your natural Endo-Cannabinoid system. This system includes cannabinoid receptors. In the body these cannabinoid receptors act as support bases for our bodies. Therefore when Hemp derived CBD and its related cannabinoids including CBDa, CBG, CBGa and CBC bind to these cannabinoid receptors they can act as a support base for our bodies.
But what makes this possible? The hypothesis is that by binding to our internal cannabinoid receptors CBD can help maintain their natural processes in acting as a support base for our bodies. Therefore this is a source of all round health and wellbeing.
Subsequently this has been behind much of the market growth of this industry not just today but in past generations also. As more research develops over time, people are seeing the correlations between our Endo-cannabinoid system and CBD supplementation. This garners many sales for many companies.
Secondly a number of companies are branching out and innovating dual combination supplements whereby CBD and other healthy supplements come together as one. For example vitamins and minerals when mixed with CBD in tincture form can allow consumers to gain their daily influx of normal supplements alongside their Hemp Oil.
Another unique example is the mixture of Turmeric and Hemp Oil where Turmeric and its active ingredient Curucmin work with cannabinoids in synergy to create a dual-purpose health supplement.
A simple Google search will show numerous results on the benefits of Turmeric as an anti-inflammatory. So when supplementing Turmeric with Hemp, you can gain the cartilage support they need and the benefits of CBD in one.
This has provoked many to keep up their CBD supplementation as they search the Internet for these interesting offerings as they gain more from their money when purchasing these two in one supplements. Thereby increasing sales and growing the market’s size.
However there have been some setbacks in the rate the market can grow. This is because the purported health benefits of some CBD supplements can be compromised due to false information spreading in the industry. This comes in the form of some companies lying about the contents of their products.
These products state they have “x” amount of cannabidiol, but lack lab reports to back this up. Therefore the amount of CBD in these products is rarely accurately reported on the label. This has brought many to stop trusting the industry as a whole. Newspapers like the Daily Mail constantly fear monger about “fake” CBD supplements overstating their contents to the public.
On the other hand most companies are taking the time to procure lab reports to mitigate the aftershocks of such practices. This well documented but often expensive third party lab testing by organisations such as Phytovista can regain the trust lost by some consumers.
For instance we at All Round CBD openly publish these lab reports after they have been checked and rechecked by the relevant authorities to show we mean what we say on the label.
But why exactly are lab reports a crucial factor in the major health benefits of CBD Oil? This is because the amount of CBD dosage stated on a label mirrors the health benefits gained from a product.
For example a customer looking for low strength CBD Oil will know they are just starting out in urging their cannabinoid receptors to receive CBD. Accordingly they will take the lowest dose. But the respective benefits they get from this dosage can be skewed if there aren’t the necessary lab reports at hand to show they are getting what they pay for.
To finish things off hopefully you can see the major health benefits of CBD Oil as complimenting your Endo-Cannabinoid system in order to help maintain your body’s normal functions. Secondly the benefits of CBD Oil are enhanced through combining it with other natural ingredients. These two factors have allowed CBD to grow as a market and gain consumer trust. Although there are some bogus CBD products out there the vast majority of companies accurately state what’s on their label thereby allowing sales to continue.
