What is CBD and what are the health benefits?

CBD is the new ‘buzz’ word but what is it and what are the health benefits to you and your family? If you watch TV, read a magazine, are on your computer or even passing a coffee shop or salon, you would have seen these initials: CBD.

When I first found out that CBD came from cannabis, I was sceptical as I did not want to have anything to do with getting high; then I found out that cannabis has many varieties. Like citrus has orange, lemon and lime, cannabis has hemp and marijuana. The latter is harvested purely for its psychoactive intoxicating effect; hemp, on the other hand, has over 50,000 industrial applications and has been in the human diet for millennia. All mammals have an endocannabinoid system that craves CBD and other ‘cannabinoids’ for general wellbeing and balance.

Sativa Group Plc (NEX:SATI) is the UK’s leading quoted CBD Wellness and medicinal cannabis group with five operating subsidiaries. Goodbody Botanicals provides CBD products online and to retail markets including pharmacies, wellness stores and grocers. Goodbody Wellness is a high-street retail brand with dedicated CBD Wellness stores providing a premium shopping experience to consumers. Tessellate Collective is a direct-selling network marketing platform servicing consumers at home. Phytovista laboratories provides independent testing of CBD products to both external customers and fellow Group businesses. Sativa Grow holds a Controlled Drug licence and cultivates cannabis plants to fulfill its partnership agreement with King’s College London to research the impact of cannabinoids on inflammation and respiratory conditions.
