CBD is becoming more and more popular, in the next few years it’s going to be a £127 billion market and, this year alone, it’s going to surpass £600 million in sales.
This year alone it’s going to be over half a billion.
But, where does this demand come from? What even is CBD? Finally, what is it about CBD that Hemp Point believes is going to take over the world?
Origins of CBD, where did it start?
First discovered in 1940 by Roger Adams, cannabinoid or CBD is relatively new. Especially when one compares it to marijuana, this dates back to 500bc. Adam’s isolated CBD from the hemp plant he then tried to ascertain about the existence of the psychoactive chemical THC which is now found in it.
Interesting as now we know that CBD contains THC but in trace amounts, this is full spectrum CBD but CBD has no trace at all. The Hemp Point blog will cover the whole family of products available to their customers (the best, high quality CBD products in the UK) and more on the history and background to CBD.
The usual CBD formulation is oil, but CBD is also sold as an extract. See our extensive list of products below.
Unlike marijuana, CBD is not illegal, this is because it does not change a person’s state of mind when they use it. However, it makes changes in the body, and it is showing some significant medical benefits. Read below to understand more of these benefits.
How does CBD work?
There are two main receptors that the body produces. The first is, CB1, and they are found, mainly in the brain but all over the body. CB2 is the second and it’s found more in the immune system.
CB1 receptors are very important and help guide us through many key functions such as emotion, cognitive thinking, pain and even when we are hungry. CB
CB2 receptors because they are in the immune system, they impact areas like inflammation and pain. You can see how they overlap as receptors as CB1 also crossover with pain/emotion.
This gives you an idea of why people use them for muscle recovery. People are surprised but it makes sense when you understand the receptor roles.
What are the benefits/side effects of CBD?
CBD Oil or any CBD product in the UK or outside of the UK, any quality too, can benefit you. However, the best quality CBD is hard to come by. The market is saturated with a mix of different CBD Oils and CBD products.

The better quality, the better the CBD and the more high quality it is. The strength of CBD is dependent on the quality as you can have a lower dose but better quality rather than taking a higher dose of CBD.
