A Guide to Hemp in Ireland

Sales of CBD food supplements have been steadily on the rise in Ireland. Although cultivating and selling cannabis is not permitted in Ireland, the sale of CBD oil (Cannabidiol) is allowed. A variety of Irish brands now provide quality CBD oils to men and women of every age as the CBD market continues to expand.

People usually seek out CBD food supplements for a particular reason with many claiming a variety of health benefits. However such claims regarding CBD cannot be confirmed as fact due to a lack of clinical research results available. Right now, the cannabis plant is used for its cannabinoid content to create CBD oils and CBD Gummies which can be taken like any common vitamins or mineral supplement.

Some men add calcium to their diet for bone health and some women add vitamin d for a healthy immune system, so why not add CBD? Adding either full-spectrum or broad -spectrum CBD oil to your diet is quite popular now in Ireland but is there any risk involved when choosing this supplement option?

What Is Hemp?

CBD or Cannabidiol is a molecule found in a plant known as Cannabis sativa, generally called hemp or cannabis. The Cannabis sativa plant contains over 80 compounds known as cannabinoids. 

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the most famous component in cannabis. On the other hand, CBD is derived from hemp, which is a type of Cannabis sativa L that has just trace quantities of THC.

Cannabinoids react with cannabinoid receptors in the body. These receptors are part of the Endocannabinoid system. The body produces two types of receptors: 

  • CB1 receptors: These can be found all across the body, especially in the brain. Emotion, movement, pain, thinking, appetite, and other processes are coordinated by CB1 receptors. 
  • CB2 receptors: They are more common in the immune system. They influence pain and inflammation. 

THC links with CB1 receptors, while CBD stimulates the receptors, making the body produce its own cannabinoids, called Endocannabinoids.

Ireland allows companies to sell CBD as long as its THC levels are 0.2% or lower. Another factor regarding the sale of CBD oils and other CBD products is their market status. CBD oils and CBD products must be sold only as food supplements to customers.

The Health Products Regulation Authority (HPRA) of Ireland does not recognise the cannabis plant or hemp derived CBD oil as having any medicinal properties. Irish authorities know that CBD does not create the same level of psychoactive effects that THC does, which encouraged leaders to make it legal on the island.
