What is CBD oil?2018-07-13T22:58:16+01:00

‘What is CBD Oil’ is the most common question we get asked. Cannabidiol, or ‘CBD’ as it is more commonly known, is from the cannabis plant and it will not make you high. For this reason, CBD is legal.

CBD is what you get when you extract cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. A carrier oil is used such as olive oil, which leaves a bitter taste or coconut MCT oil, which gives a much smoother taste. Both these carrier oils help the absorption of CBD into the body.

What are the benefits of taking CBD oil?2018-06-15T21:17:24+01:00

Due to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) guidelines, we cannot specifically state conditions that CBD may affect.

We encourage you to do your own research, consult with doctors and use resources like the National Center for Biotechnology Information website where new clinical research and peer reviews are published in real time.

We encourage you to talk to your doctor first before starting any new nutritional and dietary supplement program.

Is medicinal cannabis the same as CBD?2018-06-15T21:21:23+01:00

No, they are not the same. Medicinal cannabis contains THC which is the compound in the cannabis plant that is psychoactive and provides the ‘high’. CBD has only the tiniest trace elements of THC (less than the legal limit of 0.02%) and does not make you high.

How much CBD oil should I take?2018-06-15T21:23:54+01:00

The question of dosing is subjective to each person and depends upon how your body responds.

Consistency is key.

Taking CBD is not like taking a paracetamol tablet when you have pain; it needs to taken regularly to build up in your system.

So how to determine the right dose for you?

  • Start small. We recommend 1 spray, 4 times a day for 2-3 days
  • If there is no noticeable difference, increase the dose to 2 sprays, 4 times a day for 2-3 days
  • Keep increasing slowly and incrementally until you notice some change
  • Once you have noticed a difference, keep at that dose and when you feel comfortable, you may be able to taper off slightly.

Please note that the maximum daily allowance is 200mg of CBD, which is approximately 50 sprays.

How does CBD work?2018-06-15T21:31:01+01:00

The reason CBD is so effective lies in our biochemistry.

We have naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors all around our body; these receptors interact with CBD.

Our bodies are constantly making its own cannabinoids, which make up most of our endocannabinoid system.

The endocannabinoid system is involved in the process regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes, appetite, pain-sensation, memory and mood.

 

How do I check whether I’m buying the best quality CBD?2018-07-13T22:56:26+01:00

CBD oil is very popular, for good reason. With the number of CBD products now on the market, there are three important things to look out for when trying to find the very best quality CBD oil:

  1. Look for Full Spectrum CBD: In a high quality cannabis oil, there should be a range of cannabinoids. Not just CBD. This is because all these compounds work together synergistically to produce what is known as the ‘entourage effect’, making the oil more efficatious (effective). If you only see CBD on a lab test result, then it will not be full spectrum. Our oils contain CBD,CBDA,CBC,CBG,CBGA,CBN, flavanoids and terpenes.
  2. Choose CBD that has been CO2 Extracted: Avoid Butane extraction (cheap, efficient but toxic) and pharmaceutical-grade ethanol (which some say destroys the plant’s waxes leading to less potent oil). Look for Supercritical CO2 extraction. This method uses carbon dioxide under high pressure, to isolate, preserve and maintain the purity of the oil. This makes for a cleaner taste and a cannabinoid-rich product.
