The cannabis plant contains more than 100 different chemical compounds known as cannabinoids, which interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system in many ways. One of those cannabinoids is CBD, or cannabidiol (pronounced cann-a-bid-EYE-ol). CBD is non-psychoactive, which means it won’t get you high.
Our products are food supplements for everyday well being. They are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. You should consult with your doctor before taking supplements if you are unsure, or on medication.
The main difference is that CBD will not make you high. Of all those different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, the two best known are CBD and THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. CBD and THC are both found in marijuana, but it's the THC that's responsible for mind-altering effects. THC is psychoactive; CBD is not. Our CBD products are made from EU certified hemp varieties (contains less than 0.2% THC) and are therefore non-psychoactive.
Yes CBD extracted from hemp is legal in the UK and EU
Research, including from the World Health Organisation, shows that CBD is very safe. It can be applied topically as well as ingested.
Before adding CBD oil to your regimen, as with any supplement, be sure to check with your doctor to make sure that it's a good choice for you. This is especially true if you are taking certain anti-seizure medications. CBD oil can be consumed in a myriad of ways: tinctures, oil vaping, capsules, sublinguals, or even topicals. When taking CBD, always follow the instructions on the package of the product you have purchased. All our products come with instructions for use. Generally we would advise you to start with the smallest recommended amount and notice its effects. Listen to your body and build up the amount taken daily.
"Full spectrum" or "whole plant" CBD oil will contain trace amounts of THC as well as other cannabinoids. This contributes to the "entourage effect," which allows users to reap the benefits of not only the hundreds of cannabinoids but also the flavonoids and terpines present in the plant. Isolate CBD oils are made by isolating only the CBD present in the plant; THC and other cannabinoids will not be present in these oils.
Hemp oil is the name given any oil derived from the hemp plant; CBD oil is an oil containing high amounts of CBD, made from either the hemp or the cannabis plant. While much CBD oil is also hemp oil, not all hemp oil is CBD oil; hemp oil made from the seeds of the hemp plant will not contain active CBD.
