What is CBD

CBD also know as Cannabidiol it is a compound (Phytocannabinold) found in the flowers and leaves of the Hemp Plant. It is recognised for its benefits on both human and animal health and is capable of affecting almost every biological process with the body.  It is non-psychotoxic and has an extremely safe profile. Our oil is derived from Organic Hemp Cultivated in the UK 

Is this Marijuana?

Absolutely NOT.  Our product is derived from Hemp Plants, NOT Marijuana.  Hemp and Marijuana are closely connected but not the same.  Hemp contains no more than 0.3% THC(Tetrahydrocannabinol) known as the psychoactive compound that is found in the higher concentration in marijuana. Whereas Hemp has higher levels of CBD (Cannabidiol) and a non-psychoactive compound which is helps to maintain health in humans.

How Does CBD Oil Work?

Within our bodies we have the Endocannabiniod System, in layman’s terms this is a vast network of receptors.  The Endocannabiod System helps our bodies stay balanced and enables us to cope with the external factors and lifestyle choices placed on us in this modern world.  CBD and other Cannabiniods help us stay in good health and supports the bodies processes by fitting themselves into the bodies receptors.

Which CDB product is best for you

This would be what suits you and your lifestyle. Whether Oils, Capsules, Cream or Skin Balms try them and go with which you prefer.

 

How do I decide on which product and how much do I take?

We would normally suggest starting the lower strength oils and take the recommended dosage supplied with the product take this for a 4 – 6 week period, if you feel it has not met your wellness needs look to increase the strength accordingly.

 

Broad Spectrum or Isolate?

Hemp has over 400 compounds like CBD, it also has phytocannabinoids, terpeniods, terpenes and flavonoids.  These work together to heighten the positive effects of cannabidiol (CBD) hence why we believe the broad spectrum extract would be our first choice. However some people prefer straight 100% CBD or Isolate, the choice is yours.
