Plant power – not all CBD is created equal – Saga Magazine News

1. Traceability is important as this guarantees the best quality CBD, as well as trustworthy products that comply with regulations. Reputable CBD brands like Goodbody can trace products from the field, all the way through the production and testing process, to the store. This seed to shelf traceability gives you complete confidence in each product that you buy.

2. Products should contain no ‘THC’. CBD is a naturally occurring extract derived from the Hemp plant. Unlike THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis responsible for its recreational high, CBD has no psychoactive effect and can be legally sold in the UK as long as its THC content is below 0.01 percent. A CBD brand should be able to show you test certificates for products, confirming that they comply with UK regulations and that the quantity of CBD advertised on the packaging corresponds with what’s inside.

3. Value for money vs quality. You can vary your CBD intake by either changing the strength of CBD or by increasing the amount you take. Some brands sell products with a very low % of CBD content in large bottles, which appears to be a fantastic deal. However, the low CBD content actually makes them poor value for money compared to higher % CBD products.

Goodbody, based in Somerset, has an extensive range of CBD products formulated in the UK and tested at an independently managed, specialist laboratory to ensure the products contain no THC, thus removing the illegal, psychoactive effects.

It worked for me…

Drusilla Smith, 76 from Somerset, is very active but suffers with painful arthritis in both her hands and knees. As a result, her knuckles, especially on her right hand, are misshapen and painful.

According to Drusilla, “CBD oil drops help with both the pain and mobility. I am very active – I have a big house and clean my own home and I also paint and craft as hobbies so my mobility and dexterity are very important to me.

“The CBD drops mean I can get on with life and be doing the things I want to do without worrying about the arthritis holding me back. I take Goodbody Botanicals’ 20% peppermint oil drops in the morning, and occasionally in the afternoon if I have a flare up where I feel I need a slightly higher dose to get back on track”.
