  46. <p>CBD gummies are a popular and convenient way to consume CBD. However, they are often full of unhealthy ingredients, can be manufactured in a way that does not produce a product that offers consistent dosing, and generally contain CBD isolate, a far cheaper ingredient (as much as 5x times cheaper) than a broad or full spectrum cannabis extract.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
  47.  
  48.  
  49.  
  50. <p>On the other hand, <a href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/">CBD capsules</a> as a result of not needing to be flavour based, do not need to include ingredients which only purpose is to improve the flavour. CBD capsule manufacturers can focus on producing CBD products that are solely intended to support good health and wellness.&nbsp;</p>

  60. <h4 class="wp-block-heading">How CBD Gummies are made</h4>
  61.  
  62.  
  63.  
  64. <p>The best way to make CBD gummies involves adding CBD to a flavoured gummy mixture, before being moulded into shapes and left to cool. Unfortunately, another common and cheaper method for creating CBD gummies, is by spraying pre bought sweets with a CBD isolate solution. This often results in products with inconsistent amounts of CBD, as this process can be haphazard at best. Irregular dosed CBD products are a problem because to get the best out of CBD, a consistent dosage routine is essential.</p>

  67.  
  68. <h4 class="wp-block-heading">How Love CBD capsules are made</h4>
  69.  
  70.  
  71.  
  72. <p>Each vegan friendly capsule is individually filled with a unique full spectrum cannabis extract and organic coconut oil formulation. This enables Love CBD capsules to deliver a precise dose of CBD, and other beneficial cannabis compounds within each capsule.</p>
  73.  
  74.  
  75.  
  76. <h4 class="wp-block-heading">CBD gummy ingredients</h4>
  77.  
  78.  
  79.  
  80. <p>This is where gummies really fall short. The majority of CBD gummies in the UK unfortunately contain large quantities of sugar, glucose syrup, artificial chemicals and are no better than sweets. CBD products are intended to improve health and wellness, and it is hard to see that any product containing these ingredients, could be considered healthy.&nbsp;</p>

  89.  
  90. <h4 class="wp-block-heading">Love CBD capsules ingredients</h4>
  91.  
  92.  
  93.  
  94. <p>Unlike CBD gummies, the Love<a href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/"> CBD capsules</a> contain only a handful of natural, plant-based ingredients.  A high-quality cannabis extract, organic extra virgin coconut oil, terpenes and gum arabic, in a vegetable based, vegan friendly capsule shell.</p>
  95.  
  96.  
  97.  
  98. <h4 class="wp-block-heading">Made with CBD isolate</h4>
  99.  
  100.  
  101.  
  102. <p>CBD gummies generally contain CBD isolate. CBD isolate will always be inferior to both broad spectrum and full spectrum extracts, which is not surprising given that CBD isolate is a much cheaper ingredient than full or broad-spectrum extracts.</p>
  103.  
  104.  
  105.  
  106. <h4 class="wp-block-heading">Made with full spectrum cannabis extract</h4>
  107.  
  108.  
  109.  
  110. <p>Love <a href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/">CBD capsules</a> contain a full spectrum cannabis extract with a wide range of cannabis compounds, including cannabinoids like CBD, terpenes and flavonoids. Although CBD has many health benefits, the cannabis plant contains many cannabinoids and compounds which have their own health properties. Additionally, these compounds work together to produce the scientifically termed ‘Entourage Effect’. This term describes how these compounds work together to produce an effect that is greater than the sum of its part. Only broad or full spectrum CBD products are able to produce this effect, because they are far more complex, and contain hundreds of compounds.</p>
  111.  
  112.  
  113.  
  114. <h4 class="wp-block-heading">Conclusion</h4>
  115.  
  116.  
  117.  
  118. <p>As with any type of product, some are better than others. There are also undoubtedly some poor-quality CBD capsules available to buy in the UK, some of which contain CBD isolate.  However, it is not hard to look at the ingredients on a pack of gummies and quickly decide that a product potentially full of sugar, sweeteners and other unhealthy chemical ingredients are unlikely to provide the claimed wellness benefits.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
  119.  
  120.  
  121.  
  122. <p>If you are new to CBD or are currently taking CBD gummies, we would recommend trying CBD capsules as a healthier and equally convenient alternative. Additionally, parents need not be as concerned that they are going to look appetising to their children.</p>

  154. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p><span style="font-weight: 400;"><a title="CBD Oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD Oil</a> for Dogs products have increased in recent years due to their potential health benefits for humans and our furry friends. As pet owners seek alternative ways to help their dog’s well-being, <a title="CBD oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oil</a> has emerged as a topic of interest. In many cases, individuals who have had success using CBD oil decide to try it on their pet.</span></p>
  155. <h3>CBD oil for Dogs Regulations</h3>
  156. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">However, the current regulations, despite numerous products targeted towards dog owners in particular, do not permit CBD products to be marketed with pets as the intended user. The Veterinary Medicine Directorate (VMD), a government department, has long believed that dogs do not need nutritional supplements and that CBD products marketed for animal use would be considered medicine. Therefore, any products would need medical authorisation, and currently, no <a title="CBD products" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-shop/">CBD products</a> in the UK have the required VMD approval. It is an expensive, time-consuming process that is unobtainable for most UK CBD brands.</span></p>
  157. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Despite the regulatory position, this has not stopped many pet owners from using <a title="CBD products" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-shop/">CBD products</a> on their animals, and it is a growing market. Some of the brands selling these types of products are based outside the UK, and at the moment, little enforcement is being undertaken on these companies flouting the rules.</span></p>
  158. <p><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-451142" src="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/shutterstock_1027728163-300x201.jpg" alt="cbd oil for dogs" width="300" height="201" srcset="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/shutterstock_1027728163-300x201.jpg 300w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/shutterstock_1027728163-768x514.jpg 768w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/shutterstock_1027728163-60x40.jpg 60w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/shutterstock_1027728163-110x74.jpg 110w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/shutterstock_1027728163-600x401.jpg 600w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/shutterstock_1027728163-64x43.jpg 64w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/shutterstock_1027728163.jpg 1000w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" /></p>
  159. <h3>Our stance on CBD oil for Dogs</h3>
  160. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">At <a title="Love CBD" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/">Love CBD</a>, we are commonly asked questions from individuals interested in/ or already giving our products to their pets, and whilst we cannot stop them from doing so, we always provide them with a standard reply that we cannot advise or recommend our products for their pets. </span></p>
  161. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Because dogs and cats are mammals, we share many of the same biological functions and anatomy, and it makes sense that because we have so much in common, what works for one should work for the other. Both people and dogs have an endocannabinoid system. Though a lot of research is needed to understand the extent and influence of this system, it is generally recognised as significant.</span></p>
  162. <h3>Do your Research &amp; Consult with your Vet</h3>
  163. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">It is important to always do your research, and we would advise that companies blatantly breaking the rules about pet products are likely to be non-compliant in other ways and probably are not brands that should be trusted. It is also the case that a CBD product with a dog picture on the label is probably no different to any other <a title="CBD product" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-shop/">CBD product</a> apart from its marketing.</span></p>

  181. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<h2>CBD Capsules Guide</h2>
  182. <p><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="alignleft wp-image-449342 size-medium" src="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_2264791653-400x267.jpg" alt="CBD Capsules guide" width="400" height="267" /></p>
  183. <p><a title="CBD capsules" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/">CBD capsules</a> are a popular way to consume your daily dose of CBD for a number of reasons.  Here is a easy to understand CBD capsules guide which we hope you will find useful.</p>
  184. <p><a title="CBD capsules" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/">CBD capsules</a> are a more convenient and discreet way to add CBD, and in some cases other cannabinoids and beneficial cannabis plant compounds into your daily health and wellness routines.</p>
  185. <h3>The Advantages of CBD Capsules</h3>
  186. <p>CBD capsule shells are either two pieces and have the filling put into the capsule or gel capsules where CBD is added when the capsule is formed. Two-piece capsules have an intrinsic advantage in that there is more scope to vary the capsule&#8217;s content, though the manufacturing process is not as easily scalable.</p>
  187. <p>One of the big advantages of <a title="CBD capsules" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/">CBD capsules</a>, as opposed to the more commonly consumed <a title="CBD oil products" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oil products</a>, is the ease of dosing. Getting <strong>accurate dosing is really important with CBD products</strong>, and having a fiddly dropper with no markings is not helpful.</p>
  188. <p>CBD capsules are also great for individuals looking for <strong>a taste-free alternative to CBD oil</strong>, which can sometimes be an acquired taste or sometimes downright unpleasant.</p>
  189. <p>A criticism which is commonly aired about CBD capsules is that they have a lower absorption rate. Although this may be true, adding additional ingredients like coconut oil (Love<a title="CBD capsules" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/"> CBD capsules</a> all do) improves absorption.</p>
  190. <p>Cannabinoids are fat soluble and incorporating fats in conjunction with CBD use is definitely recommended. Milk chocolate is my favourite.</p>
  191. <h3>Vegan Capsules</h3>
  192. <p>Some CBD capsules are vegan-friendly and made with vegetable cellulose, however many of the gel capsules are made from bovine and as such are unsuitable for a vegan diet. Love <a title="CBD capsules" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/">CBD capsules</a> are vegan-friendly, like our popular Dutch CBD Range below, which is we recommend to first time users of CBD.</p>
  193. <h3>Types of Love CBD Capsules</h3>
  194. <p>There are various types of CBD capsules available to buy, and though the marketing of these can sometimes be unclear, deliberately in some cases, we hope that this article will help you to decide when making a purchase.</p>
  195. <p>Full-spectrum <a title="CBD capsules" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/">CBD capsules</a> contain a full range of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other beneficial compounds that are found in the hemp plant. This is the principle behind the &#8220;Entourage Effect&#8221; which has been the basis for the <a title="Love CBD Entourage Capsules" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/">Love CBD Entourage Capsules</a>.</p>
  196. <p>It is worth noting that UK regulations on controlled substances are strict, and full-spectrum CBD capsules in some cases may not comply.  All of Love CBD products are lab-tested to guarantee legal compliance and the reports are visible on our website.</p>

  198. <p>Broad-spectrum CBD capsules also contain a range of beneficial cannabis compounds, though they have been through a THC removal process. Low strength broad spectrum CBD capsules will have non-detectable levels of THC and CBN and are ideal for individuals who undergo routine drugs test.</p>
  199. <p>However, THC may be detected with stronger CBD capsule products and be found on reputable lab reports.</p>
  200. <p>Good quality <a title="broad-spectrum CBD oils" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">broad-spectrum CBD oils</a> and capsules should present a range of cannabinoids on a lab report, and broad-spectrum products which do not may be no better than a CBD isolate-based product.</p>
  201. <p>CBD isolate-based capsules contain pure CBD without other cannabinoids or beneficial compounds from the hemp plant. CBD isolate is a much cheaper ingredient than full and broad-spectrum extracts as it is mass produced.</p>
  202. <p>Unlike full or broad-spectrum extracts, which are inherently different from each other depending upon the variety of plants used, CBD isolate products are generic, with the only difference being any additional ingredients.</p>
  203. <p>CBD isolate also costs about 5x cheaper for a manufacturer to buy than a broad or full spectrum extract, and this CBD capsules guide would be doing a disservice to anyone reading this article and not point this out.</p>
  204. <p>Manufacturing with CBD isolate is easier and is able to incorporate a flavouring better as the isolate imparts very little of its own flavour.</p>
  205. <p>It is fair to say that my opinion of CBD isolate products is very low, and I would never personally use them. Comparing a full/ broad spectrum product to an isolate product is also not a direct comparison in many ways; as cannabis extracts are complex and contain many compounds, CBD isolate does not.</p>
  206. <h3>Stay Clear of CBD Isolate and false claims</h3>
  207. <p>CBD isolate products are commodities and mass-produced and the only reason to buy isolate-based CBD capsules is that they are often cheaper. Whilst Love CBD capsule may be slightly more expensive, than some other brands, we <strong>only use high-quality ingredients</strong> which is reflected in the price.</p>
  208. <p>As discussed in this CBD capsules guide, broad-spectrum and full-spectrum CBD capsules contain many more beneficial compounds and are generally recommended over an isolate-type CBD capsule product. However, not all extracts are created equal and some brands claim to be selling full spectrum products when the lab reports don’t reflect this claim.</p>
  209. <p>The same can be said for broad-spectrum CBD capsules which contain no other compounds. Lab reports are key and should ideally be less than 12 months old. Not all sellers in this space are completely honest and it is well worth doing some research before buying.</p>
  210. <p>We hope that you found this CBD capsules guide useful. If you are interested to learn more about other CBD related topics, please read some of our other <a title="blog articles" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/blog">blog articles</a>.</p>

  227. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<h2>CBD Oil Benefits</h2>
  228. <p>CBD (cannabidiol) oil has become increasingly popular and almost mainstream since Love CBD began manufacturing CBD products in 2014.  This article will discuss <a title="CBD oil benefits" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oil benefits</a> that have been reported to us by our loyal and valued customers.</p>
  229. <p>CBD is extracted from the hemp plant and is a non-psychoactive compound that can provide health and well-being benefits without the &#8220;high&#8221; that is produced by arguably the most well-known cannabinoid, THC.</p>
  230. <p>While research on CBD is still in its infancy, anecdotal evidence suggests and supports the potential benefits of incorporating CBD oil into your wellness routines.</p>
  231. <h2>The Benefits</h2>
  232. <p><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="alignnone wp-image-452074" src="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1128879314-300x200.jpg" alt="cbd oil benefits" width="522" height="348" srcset="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1128879314-300x200.jpg 300w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1128879314-768x512.jpg 768w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1128879314-60x40.jpg 60w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1128879314-110x73.jpg 110w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1128879314-600x400.jpg 600w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1128879314-64x43.jpg 64w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1128879314.jpg 1000w" sizes="(max-width: 522px) 100vw, 522px" /></p>
  233. <h4>Promoting relaxation</h4>
  234. <p>CBD is often used to promote relaxation and reduce the stresses of our sometimes chaotic lifestyles. Some users of CBD report feeling a sense of calm and improved mood after using CBD, especially if used in conjunction with relaxation techniques like meditation and a healthy, balanced diet.</p>
  235. <p><a title="CBD oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oil</a> when incorporated into a meditation and mindfulness routine can also contribute towards a feeling of calmness as is often reported.</p>
  236. <h4>Sleep Support</h4>
  237. <p>Getting a good night&#8217;s sleep is crucial for your overall health and well-being. Disruptions in your sleep pattern can significantly impact an individual’s mental and physical health. <a title="CBD oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oil</a> may help improve sleep quality by promoting a sense of relaxation and a routine at bedtime.</p>
  238. <p>We would also recommend trying our <a title="Love CBD Hemp Tea." href="https://www.lovecbd.org/hemp-tea/">Love CBD Hemp Tea.</a> Our hemp tea contains chamomile, that is proven to support a restful night sleep and is is caffeine free. Our Hemp tea makes for a great bedtime drink to help you to unwind after a busy day.</p>
  239. <p><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="alignnone  wp-image-452075" src="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1918309769-300x200.jpg" alt="cbd oil benefits" width="515" height="343" srcset="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1918309769-300x200.jpg 300w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1918309769-768x512.jpg 768w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1918309769-60x40.jpg 60w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1918309769-110x73.jpg 110w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1918309769-600x400.jpg 600w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1918309769-64x43.jpg 64w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/shutterstock_1918309769.jpg 1000w" sizes="(max-width: 515px) 100vw, 515px" /></p>
  240. <h4>Skin Care</h4>
  241. <p>CBD is becoming increasingly popular as an ingredient in the cosmetic industry. Many products only incorporate CBD to jump on the latest fad; however, CBD has several useful cosmetic functions.</p>
  242. <p>A very interesting use case is its anti-sebum properties, which may benefit individuals with problematic skin conditions like acne. CBD also has anti-inflammatory properties, which may contribute towards healthier and improved skin tone.</p>
  243. <h4>Joint and Muscle Support</h4>
  244. <p>Athletes and individuals with active lifestyles commonly use <a title="CBD oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oil</a>. A popular application is before or after high-intensity activity, as it may help recover more quickly. Topical CBD products like our <a title="CBD balm" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-balm/">CBD balm</a> are also popular as a massage aid when applied to tied or achy muscles.</p>
  245. <h4>Managing Your Mood</h4>
  246. <p>CBD may positively affect our mood and emotional well-being and promote a balanced state of mind. It is, however, important to remember that CBD is not a replacement for professional mental health care, and anyone with significant mood-related concerns should speak to a qualified professional.</p>
  247. <h4>Cognitive Well-Being</h4>
  248. <p>Cognitive health, which includes memory, focus and mental clarity, is vital for our overall health and well-being. It is thought that the interaction between CBD and our endocannabinoid system may contribute towards this.</p>
  249. <p>As people take greater control and personal responsibility for their health, both physical and mental, incorporating <a title="CBD oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oil</a> and other alternative health options is getting more and more popular.</p>
  250. <p>Younger generations are growing less satisfied with conventional medicine and seeking lifestyle changes that they believe will keep them healthier for longer and avoid the need for pharmaceutical drugs. While many users report positive <a title="CBD oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oil</a> benefits across various aspects of well-being,</p>
  251. <p>Incorporating CBD into your wellness routine is a unique personal journey and, for some, very rewarding and worthwhile.</p>
  252. <p>We have thousands of reviews on Trust Pilot, where the user of Love <a title="CBD products" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-shop/">CBD products</a> showcases their personal experiences and the <a title="CBD oil benefits" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oil benefits</a> they have gained using this remarkable cannabinoid.</p>

  270. <p>Whether you closely follow the latest health trends or have just noticed all the adverts on TV these days, one thing is for sure: CBD is a term you will have heard of by now. Here is an article discussing &#8216;what is CBD&#8217; that we hope that you will find interesting.</p>
  271. <p>Which begs the question: what is CBD?</p>
  272. <p>CBD is short for &#8220;cannabidiol&#8221;. But we usually just say &#8220;CBD&#8221; as it&#8217;s easier to pronounce.</p>
  273. <p>CBD belongs to a family of compounds known as &#8220;cannabinoids&#8221;. There are more than 100 of these cannabinoids in the flowers of the cannabis sativa plant. Among certain strains of the cannabis plant, CBD is the most prevalent cannabinoid of all.</p>
  274. <p>Several of these cannabinoids have been proven to have significant positive effects on our overall wellness and health. This is the primary reason for the great worldwide interest in CBD over the last decade.</p>
  275. <p>We are, after all, a people looking for natural alternatives and plant therapies wherever possible. Now more so than ever. And cannabis affords us a new, exciting avenue of exploration &#8211; not least because these cannabis-based compounds are exclusive to the cannabis plant. A plant that for so long was legally restricted.</p>
  276. <p>Now that things are changing, we can finally take advantage of what cannabinoids offer us&#8230; first and foremost: better health.</p>
  277. <p><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="alignnone wp-image-452814 size-full" src="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/2-small-1-large-caps-300x300-1.png" alt="what is cbd oil" width="300" height="300" srcset="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/2-small-1-large-caps-300x300-1.png 300w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/2-small-1-large-caps-300x300-1-150x150.png 150w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/2-small-1-large-caps-300x300-1-60x60.png 60w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/2-small-1-large-caps-300x300-1-110x110.png 110w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/2-small-1-large-caps-300x300-1-100x100.png 100w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/2-small-1-large-caps-300x300-1-50x50.png 50w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/2-small-1-large-caps-300x300-1-64x64.png 64w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" /></p>
  278. <p><strong>The Endocannabinoid System</strong></p>
  279. <p>So there are these compounds called cannabinoids that are found in cannabis flowers. One of the two most common cannabinoids is CBD. But to experience the benefits of CBD, our bodies would need a way to process it &#8211; and we do have a way, fortunately. It is called the &#8220;Endocannabinoid System&#8221;.</p>
  280. <p>The Endocannabinoid System was discovered by scientists in the 1980&#8217;s. They reasoned that if CBD and THC had such a strong effect on us, we might also produce natural versions of these compounds, and therefore might have a system to regulate these chemicals.</p>
  281. <p>This reasoning was proven correct: the scientists discovered that our bodies produce chemicals called endocannabinoids.</p>
  282. <p>We all have cannabinoid receptors throughout our bodies &#8211; in every single organ. These allow cannabinoids &#8211; both exogenous and plant-based cannabinoids &#8211; to interact with us, and affect profound changes within the body.</p>
  283. <p>Crucially, these receptors are known to be responsible for the regulation of systems in our body that support general health and well-being.</p>
  284. <p>There are two types of cannabinoid receptors inside us: CB1 and CB2. The CB1 receptors generally interact with the neurological pathways in the brain and central nervous system whilst the CB2 receptor supports the immune system and organs elsewhere in the body.</p>
  285. <p>Therefore, through the use of the CB1 receptor the mind can be impacted. Through the CB2 receptor the organs around the body can be impacted.</p>
  286. <p>The big picture, though, is this: The Endocannabinoid System is an evolutionary mechanism designed to keep our organism in balance. This balance &#8211; or &#8220;homeostasis&#8221; &#8211; is vital to the long-term prosperity of the body. There are lots of specific ways of using cannabis &#8211; for body and/or mind &#8211; to help yourself and ease particular complaints, but the ultimate goal is homeostasis.</p>
  287. <p><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="alignnone wp-image-452815 size-full" src="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/natural-lighting-by-window-5-300x300-1.png" alt="what is cbd " width="300" height="300" srcset="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/natural-lighting-by-window-5-300x300-1.png 300w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/natural-lighting-by-window-5-300x300-1-150x150.png 150w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/natural-lighting-by-window-5-300x300-1-60x60.png 60w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/natural-lighting-by-window-5-300x300-1-110x110.png 110w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/natural-lighting-by-window-5-300x300-1-100x100.png 100w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/natural-lighting-by-window-5-300x300-1-50x50.png 50w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/natural-lighting-by-window-5-300x300-1-64x64.png 64w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" /></p>
  288. <p><strong>The Entourage Effect</strong></p>
  289. <p>Right, so there are cannabinoids made by the cannabis plant and by the human body. We have receptors throughout our body which interact with these cannabinoids, generating desirable effects that aid the well-being of the individual.</p>
  290. <p>But are there ways to maximise this potentially revolutionary scientific breakthrough? Yes, absolutely. We can deploy something called &#8220;<a title="The Entourage Effect" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils-entourage/">The Entourage Effect</a>&#8220;.</p>
  291. <p>I mentioned earlier that there are more than 100 cannabinoids found in the flowers of the cannabis plant, and that these compounds interact in various ways with the Endocannabinoid System. And this produces a wide array of effects for body and mind.</p>
  292. <p>But on top of this wide diversity of effects produced by 100+ different cannabinoids, other components of the plant also factor in. One of these are a family of compounds known as &#8220;terpenes&#8221;. Terpenes are the perfume of cannabis.</p>
  293. <p>There are dozens of primary terpenes in cannabis. Depending on the specific strain of cannabis, a wide array of aromas can be produced &#8211; from lemon to pineapple to skunk (unfortunately).</p>
  294. <p>Not only do terpenes affect the smell of the cannabis plant, they also change the effects of cannabinoids within the human body. Terpenes magnify and modify the impact of cannabinoids.</p>
  295. <p>And this is why a true cannabis extract is something we will always choose over a CBD isolate powder.</p>
  296. <p>Why restrict yourself to one beneficial compound when the plant is jammed with other beneficial compounds? Especially when they produce stronger effects in unison than isolated?</p>
  297. <p>This is why here at Love CBD we like to use cannabis oil rather than isolated CBD powder to make our <a title="CBD products" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-shop/">CBD products</a>. We know that when CBD is paired with other cannabinoids and <a title="terpenes" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cannabis-terpenes-and-what-they-do/">terpenes</a> it will prove more effective. We know that The Entourage Effect works and it would be foolish to not utilise this powerful knowledge.</p>
  298. <p>We called ourselves <a title="Love CBD" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/">Love CBD</a> because of our obvious love for CBD. But we love the cannabis plant as a whole, and we understand that to get the most from CBD we must use the whole plant and not just extract one element from it.</p>
  299. <p>This is our motivation. It is why we created The <a title="Entourage Oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils-entourage/">Entourage Oil</a>. And it is why nearly 10 years after we did so we remain a major name in the UK CBD market when others have long since come and gone.</p>

  312. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<h2>The Hemp Plant?</h2>
  313. <p>Hemp is a truly incredible plant when you understand the huge scope of uses, environmental benefits, and properties of the plant.</p>
  314. <p>The plant can be used to make clothing, as an alternative fuel source, as animal feed, as seed oil, as medicine, and even as housing material such as hempcrete. it is also of course also used in the production of CBD products including <a title="CBD oils" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD oils</a>, <a title="CBD capsules" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules/">CBD capsules</a>, cosmetics, and <a title="CBD e-liquids" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-vapes/">CBD e-liquids</a> using extracts from the flowers.</p>
  315. <p>It is believed to have first been cultivated around three thousand years ago when it was primarily used for making clothing, rope, animal food, and pressed into seed oil. An interesting fact about the plant is that it was made law by Henry V111 that a portion of land had to be used to grow hemp in order to supply the Royal Navy with fibre to make the sails used in their fleet of ships.</p>
  316. <p>There is some confusion about Hemp and Cannabis because they are essentially 2 Genera of the same plant. The most common being Cannabis Sativa L and Cannabis Indica. Cannabis <a title="Sativa" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-vapes/">Sativa</a> plants are generally taller with long stems and leaves which have longer blades whereas Cannabis <a title="Indica" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-vapes/">Indica</a> plants don’t grow as tall and are generally wider with shorter leaves.</p>
  317. <p>Hemp is legal and approved strain of Cannabis Sativa L which have less than 0.2% THC in the EU, though this may be changing soon or 0.3% THC in the US. The flowers which are used to make CBD products contain many cannabinoids including CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBC, CBN, and THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient that can make us feel &#8216;high&#8217; or ‘stoned’. A broad spectrum of full-spectrum extract will also contain flavonoids that produce the cannabis taste and terpenes including beta-caryophyllene (in itself a cannabinoid), myrcene, limonene, linalool, etc, which are responsible for the characteristic cannabis smell.</p>
  318. <p>Hemp is also able to sequester significantly more CO2 from the atmosphere than almost any other plant and as a result, produces significant potential environmental benefits. Love CBD estimates that in the last year, the hemp grown that goes into our products has sequestered about 70 tonnes of CO2. This is based on the acreage used, and the average amount of C02 hemp sequesters per acre. This is the equivalent of 35 cars&#8217; annual C02 output.</p>

  320. <h2>What is Hemp Oil?</h2>
  321. <p>It&#8217;s made from the plants seeds which are cold-pressed into an oil. It is commonly used in cooking and is packed with nutrients and vitamins including vitamin c, calcium, iron, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Hemp is a rare food source that has an equal ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 which is considered to be very beneficial to supporting good health and well-being. Having high levels of omega 6 commonly found in fish oils though beneficial in moderation is not recommended in a high dose.</p>
  322. <p>Hemp seed oil as well as being used in food is also found in cosmetic products like our <a title="Love CBD Balm" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-balm/">Love CBD Balm</a> and adds skin nourishment properties.</p>
  323. <h2>Is Hemp Oil the Same as CBD Oil?</h2>
  324. <p>The short answer is NO! Hemp seed oil is made from the seeds of the hemp plant, which contain very few cannabinoids compared to the flowering tops of the plant which are used to produce CBD oil.</p>
  325. <p>The confusion arises because the plant is used to produce both hemp seed oil and CBD oil. The main difference between the two oils is the part of the hemp plant that is used and the extraction process required to produce the oil. Hemp oil is traditionally produced by cold pressing the seeds which is a very simple and old technique of making oil. CBD oil has a few methods in which the oil is produced, the two most common being CO2 and solvent extraction. Solvent extraction using a food-grade solvent is the most common method as CO2 methods are unable to remove controlled cannabinoids including THC and CBN from the extract and are therefore likely to be illegal within the UK. This is due to the strict and unreasonably low levels required of the CBD industry with no basis on safety or scientific evidence!</p>
  326. <p>Although hemp seed oil contains very little CBD, it is packed with other vitamins and minerals which is the main reason why they are used in cooking and eaten as a snack.</p>
  327. <p>It is also important to note that cold-pressed CBD products which are available to buy in the UK are often misleading and in order to contain any significant levels of CBD have to add it in usually with CBD isolate.</p>
  328. <p><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-451154" src="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/hemp-tea-green-300x300.png" alt="hemp plant uses" width="300" height="300" srcset="https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/hemp-tea-green-300x300.png 300w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/hemp-tea-green-150x150.png 150w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/hemp-tea-green-60x60.png 60w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/hemp-tea-green-110x110.png 110w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/hemp-tea-green-100x100.png 100w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/hemp-tea-green-50x50.png 50w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/hemp-tea-green-64x64.png 64w, https://www.lovecbd.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/hemp-tea-green.png 512w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" /></p>
  329. <h2>What are the uses for Hemp?</h2>
  330. <p>As you can see the hemp plant has a huge amount of uses and is a very versatile yet under-utilized plant.</p>
  331. <p>Industrial hemp can be used to make rope, clothes, as an alternative to plastic, and even building materials with great fire-resistant and heat-retaining properties.</p>
  332. <p>The seeds can be used in cooking and as a part of a healthy eating regime as they are packed with vitamins, and omega oils and are a great source of fibre.</p>
  333. <p>Hemp is able to improve the quality of soil which in many parts of the world is a big problem due to intensive farming with harmful chemicals and fertilizers and minimal crop rotations. The plant is able to draw out the impurities within the soil which makes it a very useful tool for farmers. However, for this reason, it is very important that hemp extracts are tested for pesticides and heavy metals which can be found in the plant and as a result can also end up in CBD products from less scrupulous companies who have poor control over their supply chain.</p>
  334. <p>The Cannabis Sativa strain of hemp is of course also used to make CBD products including the Love CBD range of CBD oils and CBD capsules and if you are reading this then you probably have a good idea about all the health and wellness benefits that CBD can deliver.</p>

  347. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<h1>CBD and the Winter Blues</h1>
  348. <h2>Relaxing and unwinding</h2>
  349. <p>It is a well-known fact that we can feel down and sad during the cold and dark winter months. A lack of sunshine, being stuck inside and a cold north wind, can make those hazy days of summer seem a distant dream. But can the benefits of <a title="CBD Oils" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils">CBD Oils</a> and other legal cannabis products like <a title="CBD topicals" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-balm/">CBD topicals</a> or hemp tea help us beat those winter blues?</p>
  350. <p>A warm cup of the <a title="Love CBD hemp tea" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/hemp-tea/">Love CBD hemp tea</a> (which contains chamomile) or a hot chocolate made with warm milk might help us get a good night&#8217;s sleep. It is worth noting that CBD is fat soluble so it is better taken with food that has a high fat content and a hot chocolate made with full fat milk would deliver greater bio-availability.</p>
  351. <h2>The value of exercise for good health</h2>
  352. <p>We should all be incorporating exercise into our weekly schedule. As well as helping to keep you fit and healthy, it can also produce positive feelings and improve our overall outlook and mood over the winter months. Exercise releases endorphins, a hormone that regulates and effects our feelings of happiness. Exercise can also reduce cortisol levels, a stress hormone that in high levels can induce weight gain. Therefore, a work out or even a short walk can improve our outlook on life and make us feel a little less stressed and a little happier.</p>
  353. <p>Comfort eating can be an issue during the winter months and with people generally moving less and having a less positive outlook on life, we can easily pile on the pounds. Pounding the road on a cold January night or working out in a gym can be a little soul destroying, but many believe exercise is good for your mental health as well as your waistline. Of course, it&#8217;s when you stop for the evening that you suddenly feel the aches and pains of muscles that have been hill climbing or lifting weights in a gym. This is where CBD topicals can be useful and may help with muscle recovery and easing the stresses and strains that can occur during exercising.</p>
  354. <h2>Sports or a relaxing massage</h2>
  355. <p>Massaging after exercise is a good way to help relax tight and tired muscles. After any strenuous exercise, incorporating a massage into the routine is a great post work out activity. This may have the added benefit of helping you to relax, leading to a better night&#8217;s sleep. As well as being used for cosmetic purposes, the <a title="Love CBD balm" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-balm/">Love CBD balm</a> is also a great CBD massage oil that can be used in a sports context or in a more relaxing even sensual setting. Regular massaging may help reduce stress and any associated ill health as a result of stressful and frantic lifestyles.</p>
  356. <h2>Mindfulness and getting away from it all</h2>
  357. <p>Being able to take your mind off the stresses of life and reset your thought processes is a valuable tool and is a skill that needs to be learned and honed over time. It takes practice and time to learn mindfulness, but if you are willing to put in the effort then it can have a profound effect on your life and ability to cope with work and stresses that we all experience at various times in our lives. Some people find that using music or different frequency tones can get them to a place of calm and stillness more easily, others need to create an environment and atmosphere that is conducive. For example, the use of essential oils and aromatherapy are a popular way to help with relaxation and stress reduction. Herbal teas are also often used as a means of cleansing the body of toxins as a healthy mind needs a healthy body. The Love CBD Hemp Tea bags contains chamomile which has a long history of use as a sleep and relaxation aid and ginger that is commonly used to help with digestion.</p>
  358. <h2>The importance of a healthy diet</h2>
  359. <p>A healthy diet is essential to help fight the negative emotions and feeling that are commonly experienced during the winter. A nutrient rich diet is the basis for health and well being and a diet that is varied and contains all the vitamins and minerals your body needs to stay healthy are vital to maintain a positive outlook. Food supplements can play a part in your overall health, but are not a replacement for good wholesome and nutritious food.  Cannabinoids found in hemp are misunderstood but are widely becoming recognised as an essential nutrient that has long been consumed and part of the human diet.</p>
  360. <h2>Why are cannabinoids important to your health</h2>
  361. <p>The Endocannabinoid system is a cell signalling system of receptors which scientists say helps regulate functions such as sleep, mood, immune response and appetite, as well as a myriad of other things. Our Endocannabinoid System plays an integral part in bringing balance and ensuring our health and well-being. The system is active in our bodies and plant based phyto-cannabinoids naturally key into this system as if by design. It is understood that deficiencies within the Endocannabinoid System can lead to poor health and there is growing scientific evidence to support this. Plant based cannabinoids found in both full spectrum and broad-spectrum cannabis extracts are therefore a great way to boost or in some case kick start the Endo-Cannabinoid System if lying dormant.</p>
  362. <h2>CBD products in Summary</h2>
  363. <p>So, we can see that CBD products like the <a title="Love CBD Capsules" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-capsules-entourage/">Love CBD Capsules</a> and <a title="Gold Oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils-gold/">Gold Oil</a> can be used to help us through these cold, dark winter months and it is definitely worth considering as part of your routine to maintain good health and a feeling of wellbeing. At least until the sun starts shining again or you take that long overdue vacation to the Seychelles.</p>

  405. <b>For this you will need:</b></p>
  406. <ul>
  407. <li>185 grams of unsalted butter.</li>
  408. <li>185 grams of dark chocolate.</li>

  418. <h2>METHOD:</h2>
  419. <p>Cut 185 grams of unsalted butter butter and 185 grams of dark chocolate into small pieces and mix into the bowl.</p>
  420. <p>Fill a saucepan about a quarter of hot water and stand the bowl on top of it, making sure the bowl doesn&#8217;t touch the water. Put on a low heat until the Butter and Chocolate have melted. You can stir the mix occasionally to help them melt quicker.</p>
  421. <p>Once melted, remove the bowl from the pan and leave the mixture to cool to room temperature. While it is cooling, switch on oven and set to 180C or 160C for a Fan/Gas oven.<br />
  422. Cut a square of non stick baking parchment and fit into a 20cm square shallow tin.</p>
  423. <p>Pour 85 grams of plain flour and 40 grams of cocoa powder into a sieve. Tap the sieve over a bowl, so they run through together.</p>
  424. <p>Use a board to chop 50 grams of white chocolate and 50 grams of milk chocolate into chunks.</p>
  425. <p>Break 3 large eggs into a large bowl and mix with 275 grams of Golden Caster Sugar. Whisk the eggs and sugar until they look thick and creamy, a bit like a milk shake.</p>
  426. <p>Pour the cooled chocolate mix over the whisked &#8216; eggy&#8217; mousse and gently fold together. Do this gently and slowly so you don&#8217;t knock all the air out of the mixture. Continue to mix until it turns a mottled dark brown colour.</p>
  427. <p>Sieve the cocoa and flour mixture into this &#8216;eggy&#8217; chocolate mix making sure you cover the top of it evenly.</p>
  428. <p>Fold this mixture together as before, gently and slowly. Stop when it appears to have a fudge consistency.</p>
  429. <p>Add One spray of <a title="Love CBD Gold Oil" href="https://www.lovecbd.org/cbd-oils-gold/">Love CBD Gold Oil</a> per serving to the mixture. So if you are making 8 brownies, use 8 sprays.</p>
  430. <p>Then stir in the white and Milk chocolate chunks until they&#8217;re spread evenly throughout the mixture.</p>
  431. <p>Now pour the mixture into the prepared tin, making sure it&#8217;s spread evenly and right into the corners. Put in the oven for 25 minutes preferably on the middle shelf.</p>
  432. <p>Take out of the oven.</p>
  433. <p>Let them cool, then ENJOY!</p>

  445. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<h2><b>What do you need to know about CBD and workouts?</b></h2>
  446. <p>You’ve pumped weights, hit the treadmill, and ran a few miles to stay healthy. You knew that, among other benefits, the exercise would lead to stronger muscles and better blood circulation. Even though you’re short of breath, once again, you realize that you managed to make it to the end of another workout. Even though you may still feel a little pain, you know that the whole point of the workout was to push your body to its limits. The exercise was your way of doing this.</p>
  447. <h2><b>Should you take CBD before or after your workout?</b></h2>
  448. <p>In the U.K., cloudy and rainy weather is the norm. For exercise, your timing matters. The time of day you choose to take CBD may influence when you start your exercise routine. Getting out in the morning means you can beat the heat and be in a better mood. Temperatures are lower before the afternoon. Plus, you’ll wake up refreshed and not yet confronted with a day’s worth of challenges.</p>
  449. <h2><b>It&#8217;s important to be well rested before a workout.</b></h2>
  450. <p>Here are some reasons why.</p>
  451. <ul>
  452. <li>You need enough rest to sustain an intense workout.</li>
  453. </ul>
  454. <ul>
  455. <li>You need rest to feel motivated to work out.</li>
  456. </ul>
  457. <ul>
  458. <li>You need rest not to feel drained of energy, physically sick, or unable to move without extreme discomfort.</li>
  459. </ul>
  460. <p>Without rest, you have to worry about not feeling motivated. Lack of motivation is a common issue that makes exercising more difficult. Even with substantial willpower, if you’re physically and mentally not up for it, you may find the challenge of moving fast too overwhelming. But this is what happens when you don’t get enough rest</p>
  461. <h2><b>How does taking CBD after a workout help?</b></h2>
  462. <p>There are a few specific benefits of taking CBD after a workout:</p>
  463. <ul>
  464. <li>CBD is gaining popularity with athletes and professional sports men and women with a common use being in a both pre and post-workout context.</li>
  465. </ul>
  466. <p>First, accept that a workout is going to be an intense, heart-racing, time-pressured routine. Most people try to aim for a certain number of times a week. Often, they exercise after work or when they need to settle down after a long day’s work. So, there is the reality that pressure and conflict build throughout the day. Left unchecked, this tension could lead to poor stress management techniques and unhealthy ways of managing stress. This would be in contrast to the goal: exercise more to <strong>reduce stress</strong>.</p>
  467. <h2><b>How to make the right choice: CBD before or after your workout?</b></h2>
  468. <p>Therefore, to answer the question, “should you take CBD before or after a workout”, you need to look at the benefits for each. It would help if you also considered both your priorities and your values. What about exercise matters most to you? Is it the discipline you find within yourself to push beyond physical discomfort? The drive to exercise for longer distances and times? The desire to gain more strength or endurance? Understanding yourself and your priorities and values is essential to using CBD in a way that supports your exercise routine.</p>
  469. <h2><strong>Determine your priorities: </strong></h2>
  470. <p>Here are some questions you might ask:</p>
  471. <ul>
  472. <li>Do I need to feel more relieved or more motivated right now?</li>
  473. </ul>
  474. <ul>
  475. <li>Is it more important for me to exercise every so often or frequently throughout the day?</li>
  476. </ul>
  477. <ul>
  478. <li>Which is more important now or later?</li>
  479. </ul>
  480. <h2><b>Re-evaluate your values: Why CBD before or after a workout?</b></h2>
  481. <p>If you’re thinking of values, you’re thinking about what CBD is worth. You might ask questions like:</p>
  482. <ul>
  483. <li>When is the best time for me to spend time with others?</li>
