CBD oil UK: How cannaboids became healthy | British GQ


Cannabidiol (CBD) is all the rage but not for the reasons you might think. As people continue to look for more natural products for health they are reexamining herbs, including cannabis which has been outlawed for decades.  CBD, while found in both hemp and marijuana, has a number of health benefits but is not considered psychoactive. CBD oil in the UK has made major strides that are increasingly mirrored in the US.

A few weeks ago, at the Fremont Hills Country Club near Silicon Valley, a hundred or so women came together for a bit of a girl’s night out. They were coming to hear Amanda Jones talk about her new tea, Kikoko, which contains cannabinoids, and nobody was under any illusion that they were the normal market for something that could get you high. But that is what Jones specialises in: proving to people that the old way of taking pot just won’t cut it in 2018. Pot is sexier, classier, healthier and bougier than you thought it was and plenty of people are getting in on the next big industry. By the end of the “high tea”, Jones was convinced she had some new and unexpected converts among her ranks of fans.

“I’ve become a spokesperson for cannabis. Who would have thought?” said Jones when we met. “At my age! A cannabis activist!

”Cannabis has been a useful medicine since antiquity: the oldest references date back 4000BC in China. Ancient Egypt, India, Greece and Rome all showed interest in cannabis usage. In the UK it was available until 1928, but for the last 90 years it’s been off limits. The final nail in the coffin was the UN Single Convention Of Narcotic Drugs in 1961, which basically stated it was of no medicinal value and should be tightly controlled.
