Could using CBD change your life?

Tynemouth-based dispensary Karma Coast has used the last few years to source quality, organic materials to improve people’s wellbeing with products you don’t tend to find in your local Boots.

Completely legal, CBD is one of two primary compounds found in marijuana. Whilst the other – THC – produces the high, CBD has no psychoactive effect but is where the medicinal value is said to lie.

HLN peruses their wares to find out how you can add a little CBD-sparkle into your routine. Who knows? It may just change your life… 


Hear ‘CBD’ and you’re probably most likely to think about CBD oils. Designed to be absorbed under your tongue (so that it reaches your bloodstream in about 10 minutes), you can also sprinkle a couple of drops into your morning coffee.

A more convenient option than oil for those on-the-go, Karma Coast’s CBD capsules are small, easy to swallow and have been blended with three different terpenes to add a little something extra – think more natural anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and antidepressant properties.

Vaporised CBD is by far the fastest way to absorb CBD into the bloodstream and feel its effects quicker. So think of the Karma Pen as an ultimate rescue remedy for body and mind. Whether you need a quick top-up between tincture doses, or you just require some rapid relief, these clever little devices will deliver the goods immediately. Their smooth vapour won’t draw attention but is more concentrated than any other vape pen on the market.

We all love a cuppa, so why not make your brew love you too? Hemp tea blends (as long as they’re 100% organic) are a great, non-intrusive way of incorporating some CBD into your day-to-day routine, completely naturally.

Unlike any other application options, CBD topicals are only applied to the surface of your skin, meaning they don’t reach the bloodstream at all. But don’t be fooled into thinking this means you won’t see any benefit from using CBD lip balms, lotions and hand creams. Like the nervous system, your skin is also covered in cannabinoid receptors – so you can still experience pain relief from its anti-inflammatory properties, and get a much-needed moisturising hit for dry or cracked skin in these current wintery climes. There is some evidence CBD topicals have proven helpful for acne, eczema and psoriasis, too.
