Millions now take cannabidiol oil, or CBD oil, to reduce anxiety, boost sleep and relieve joint pain.

Extensive scientific research has proven the health supplement, sold on the high street, offers several potential health benefits.

But much confusion still surrounds CBD, which comes from the cannabis plant, writes Dr Sarah Brewer, a GP and nutritionist. 

It is important not to confuse legal CBD oil with forms of cannabis oil, which contain the psychoactive compound THC and is illegal.

Here, Dr Brewer, of Healthspan, answers eight questions about the supplement, including whether it could help tackle your pain, if its safe and how it works.  

CBD supplements are legal and don't contain any of the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is what makes cannabis illegal

WHAT ACTUALLY IS CBD OIL?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural extract from the hemp plant.

Because it's oil soluble, it's often mixed with hemp, coconut or olive oil to enhance its absorption. This CBD plus oil mixture is known as CBD oil.

As CBD comes from cannabis there is a common assumption that CBD oil makes you 'high' but this is not the case.

That's because it's extracted from non-marijuana strains of the cannabis plant known as hemp.

THC is the ingredient in cannabis that has 'psychoactive' effects and it's particularly prevalent in the marijuana cannabis plant.

Hemp cannabis, on the other hand, does not contain enough THC to cause these 'psychoactive' effects.
