    CBD: What is it and how is it being used in the UK?

    The number of CBD consumers doubled in the last year and with Canada becoming the latest country to legalise marijuana for recreational use, cannabis-derived products are now in the news more than ever before. CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound found in the marijuana plant. This means that products containing CBD, such as oils and extracts (which contain concentrated amounts of the compound), won’t lead to changes in mood and perception like recreational use of marijuana in its complete form is known to do.

    90% of people think they’re helping society by challenging people who don’t ‘look disabled’, says study

    Nine out of 10 people who challenge “healthy-looking” individuals for using accessible toilets in the UK think they’re helping society, according to a new study. A survey on behalf of Crohn’s & Colitis UK charity found that 93 per cent of people think that by challenging a “healthy-looking person” for using the toilet, they are “standing up for the rights of disabled people” or because they believe it is “not fair” on the rest of society. While the public’s intentions may be sincere, the charity claims it can lead to extreme “suffering and devastating consequences” for people with invisible disabilities.
