It has proved to be pretty useless at treating anything apart from limited success with Multiple sclerosis (MS)spasticity and even then the results are not impressive. As early as October 2014, NICE published guidance on the management of MS and said that the substantial cost of Sativex “compared to the modest benefit” did not justify its use. Paying for it privately will cost you about £350 a month.
Because PharmaHemp’s first business is that of a supplier of raw materials, many of the micro brands you may have come across in Europe and beyond maybe white-labelling PharmaHemp’s CBD oil; in other words, they put their own stamp (branding and packaging) on PharmaHemp’s formulas or requested bespoke formulas. Why not just take it directly from the source? We like dealing with the main supplier directly, particularly in the case of PharmaHemp, who already has a very strong brand identity and ethos. We match their prices and import their products regularly to have the freshest batches of their stock available. Visit the PharmaHemp collection.
Both varieties contain CBD and THC (albeit at different levels), which are the two primary compounds in the Cannabis sativa plant. The Cannabis plant is also very diverse, as it can grow in many different forms. The most common types are Sativa and Indica, but there are more, with each type having dozens – if not hundreds – of different adaptations and different ratios of active compounds, also known as cannabinoids.
It is recommended that you source a full spectrum CBD oil rather than a CBD crystal isolate if you wish to buy CBD oil medications, and that you are aware of the CBD percentage. If you choose to purchase even a 5% concentration from any of the snake oil salesmen, sorry – suppliers previously mentioned you will have to take 4 capsules at a time to even get remotely near the minimum recommended percentage levels for effective treatment and these will not be full spectrum.
Unfortunately the availability of only CBD isolate medically is a direct consequence of the 1920’s prohibition campaign that outlawed cannabis medications, despite the fact that prior to prohibition cannabis was listed in the United States pharmacopeia as a valuable medication in the treatment of over 100 separate medical conditions. It is still illegal to market THC in cannabis medications despite its known efficacy.
Hemp CBD is completely different from cannabis CBD. Hemp also derives from the Cannabis sativa L plant, and while it also contains THC, it contains it in volumes that are less than 0.3% by dry weight. Some governments, including the US, regulate the concentration of THC and permit a specific variety of hemp (called industrial hemp) that is bred with an especially low THC content. This is the reason why, when you type into Google “CBD oil for Sale”, you get hundreds of companies trying to sell you their products – according to most all of them, CBD oil from industrial hemp is 100% legal to sell online and ship to all 50 states.
Fill the dropper with the CBD oil, place the tip of the dropper under the tongue and drip in the desired amount. Let the CBD oil get adsorbed for 1-5 minutes before swallowing it. If you are having a hard time with the dosage or the number of drops when you drip it under your tongue, you can also use a spoon. Just put the desired amount of CBD oil on the spoon and try to put it under the tongue. Just lick off the remaining oil on the spoon. Due to the fine blood vessels and mucous membranes in the mouth, the CBD quickly enters the bloodstream and therefore has a good bioavailability.
CannabiGold was formulated by HemPoland but has recently been acquired for $15.5 million by The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TGOD). On top of that, they’ve invested another $10 million in the development of the company. This is the largest cannabis oil Europe has seen yet. CannabiGold’s CO2 extracted oil comes from 1,250 acres of hemp fields in Poland and is widely distributed to 13 countries in Europe, namely: Poland, Austria, Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal, Ireland, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Lithuania, and Estonia. CannabiGold is one of the only companies in Europe with more than 700 bricks and mortar sales locations. Their goal is to be number 1 in Europe and it seems that they may make it! Founder and CEO Maciej Kowalski reached the peak of success by methodically researching, testing, and improving their full-spectrum CBD oils, which range from the starter 500mg to the strong 3000mg CBD oil. The latter comes with a free product gift and free priority delivery if you purchase it at for the Ageless. CannabiGold also features 1000mg (CBD and CBDa) and 1500mg oil.
