Cannabidiol is a popular natural remedy used for many common ailments. Better known as CBD, it is one of over 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa (1Trusted Source).
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and causes the sensation of getting "high" that's often associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs.
CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil. It's increasing momentum in the health and wellness world, with some scientific studies confirming it may ease symptoms of ailments like chronic pain and anxiety.

Hatters Hemp Tea
Tea Is one of my favourite ways to get my water intake in and relax at the same time.
"You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me".
These words from C.S. Lewis have since been echoed by generations of tea lovers. Our preferred hemp tea of the moment is by Hatter's Hemp Tea. The brand has launched a new range of hemp-infused tea to help curb anxiety and promote relaxation. Hatter's hemp-infused tea is available in four classic flavours; English Breakfast, Green, Lemongrass & Rosehip Boost and Chamomile; and includes the benefits of CBD from the 50% hemp makeup of the teabag.
Hatter's launched four hemp-infused flavours comes after a hugely successful soft launch period of their vegan-friendly tea, which became the fastest-selling tea ever in Holland & Barrett following their sale of over 25,000 boxes since the beginning of March. We add a little Manuka honey and sit back and chill.

Ourremedy Period Relief
It is that time fo the month and now normally gram my Ourremedy I usually up my CBD intake around the time of the month it totally helps with Menstratation, pain and cramps since adding it to my lifestyle my periods have gotten milder. Ourremedy is a new CBD Oil with a difference. Created by a team of women, with women's wellness in mind - OurRemedy is an organic, vegan oil with a unique blend of grape seed, 500mg CBD infused with two vital essential oils; clary sage and Peppermint.
Made in the UK and beautifully packaged with sustainable, recycled materials - for each bottle of OurRemedy sold, the brand donates compostable sanitary products to Bloody Good Period, the leading Period Poverty Charity.
Founder, Rachel Mason said:" Self-care is essential, but it doesn't need to be selfish care. 1 in 4 women miss work due to period poverty, so we're helping out. When you buy OurRemedy, you're helping too."

Teamed with clary sage, which may help alleviate menstrual cramps and hormonal change effects, PMS symptoms such as bloating, mood swings, and compulsive eating could be soothed.
