Why Do People Choose To Take CBD?
CBD has been found to have variety of claimed benefits, some of which may include anti-inflammatory properties, which can possibly help with a variety of things including aches, pain, skin conditions. CBD oils, patches, creams and balms have also been noted to help with improving relaxation, sleep and restoring balance
At present there is little conclusive research to prove that CBD can aid in the relief of symptoms of anxiety, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson or insomnia. Whilst Spa CBD products do not claim to treat, cure or prevent any aliments or diseases however individuals may find that regular use of CBD products can help with such aliments.
CBD is thought to affect the body’s endocannabinoid system. This is a network of receptors responsible for regulating a range of biological and physiological processes such as sleep, pain, mood, memory, the immune and nervous system. CBD works in harmony with the endocannabinoid system aiding a sense of relaxation without creating a sensation of being high. Accordingly, CBD is considered possibly helpful for a number of conditions including anxiety, pain relief and inflammation.

What Are The Different Types Of CBD?
You will read regularly about spectrums of CBD:
Full-spectrum CBD Is less refined so includes most of the compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Of the different compounds there are two main components, one of them causes psychoactive effects Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and the other is the non-psychoactive component Cannabidiol (CBD).
Our CBD products don’t contain any Full-Spectrum CBD so no Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), therefore you can benefits without ever feeling ‘high’.
Broad-spectrum CBD simply put is the same as full-spectrum CBD but with one critical difference it doesn’t include THC.
It does however still include CBD and other lesser recognised cannabinoids, which can help encourage what is known as the ‘entourage effect’. This relates to how different compounds in the hemp plant can be considered more effective when working together than in isolation.
Isolate is considered to be the purest form of CBD. Unlike the other types of CBD there are no other active compounds other than CBD. Some may suggest isolate not as effective, however it is the purest and usually found in skin care products due to it being odourless.
