Used to treat many common ailments, Cannabidiol (better known as CBD) is growing in popularity in South Africa. The non-psychoactive natural remedy is an appealing option for anyone looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs. With some scientific studies confirming it may help treat a variety of ailments like chronic pain and anxiety, CBD has quickly gained momentum in the health and wellness world.
The wonder treatment is becoming more widely available in South Africa with many pharmaceutical companies bringing out their own versions of CBD-related products. The latest to join the CBD train is Adcock Ingram. The pharmaceutical company announced the launch of its flagship cannabis-based range, ADCO CBD, in South Africa this week.
CBD is widely praised and used for its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-nausea, and anti-depressant properties. This new ADCO CBD may help with the relief of minor pain and symptoms associated with stress as well as help to ease inflammatory, tissue, muscle, joint and neuropathic pain. It has also been shown to provide relief to those experiencing anxiety, muscular tension, restlessness, fatigue and poor concentration.
Formulated using cannabidiol isolate2, processed from the cannabis raw plant, the ADCO CBD range includes ADCO CBD Pain (available in oil drops, capsule and gel format), ADCO CBD Stress (available in oil drops and capsule format) and ADCO CBD Daily (available in oil drops and capsule format).
In South Africa, CBD products are permitted to contain a maximum daily dose of 20 mg CBD and the ADCO CBD range has been developed with these restrictions in mind. Recommended retail prices for the range put the ADCO CBD drops at R344.99 (200mg | 15ml) while the capsules will set you back R595.99 (200mg | 30 capsules) and the Pain gel R349.95 (50ml).
ADCO CBD products are now available from selected Clicks and Dis-Chem stores as well as selected independent pharmacies and online stores.
