Where does it come from?
CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis, often known as hemp. CBD is one of many compounds known as cannabinoids, which are all found in the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most abundant compound in hemp, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts.
What is CBD?
Will I get high?
Absolutely not! It is the compound THC that causes people to "get high" when taking cannabis.
We use pure CBD isolate and full spectrum oil from hemp plants that have a THC level below 0.2% (this is the legal limit in the UK). All our ingredients are tested by the manufacturer before being sold to us.
Is it safe?
As things stand in the UK today there is no regulation around CBD food supplements. We would like to see this changed, along with more scientific research. Studies so far show that the majority of people suffer no adverse effect from taking CBD supplements. However in order to be completely transparent we feel it is important to highlight potential side effects from taking CBD.
netdoctor.co.uk suggests the following:
"While the majority of CBD oil users don’t experience any negative effects, as with any treatment – natural or otherwise – there are possible side effects. These include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, bloating and dizziness.
More seriously, a small percentage of users have had to discontinue with CBD oil due to suspected liver damage. As well as this, CBD oil could interact with common prescription medications, so it’s important you always seek the advice of your GP before giving it a go." The full text can be found here.
We recommend that if you have any medical condition or you are pregnant then you should seek advice from your medical practitioner prior to taking CBD.
Also be advised that the coconut oil, obviously contains coconut and people with allergies should avoid this product.
But...I can get it cheaper on Ebay?
We can't stress this enough. Like with any health supplement shop with a supplier you trust.
The main active ingredients in our oils are CBD isolate, Full spectum hemp oil or a combination of the both.
A quick "google" will show that CBD isolate is available from about £20 per 1000mg. So a 3000mg product should have approximately £60 of CBD isolate in it. If it's being sold for under £20 per bottle, then you have to wonder whats actually in it.
As we buy in bulk quantities, we try to pass on these savings to our customers. But we are never going to be able to sell at the crazy ebay prices! All our ingredients are from reputable UK companies. The products have been tested to tested to guarantee both purity and to ensure compliance with UK law.
What is Full Spectrum Oil?
Full-spectrum hemp oil refers to when the pure oil extracted from hemp contains all the same cannabinoids and compounds found in the original hemp plant. Unlike isolated or synthetic cannabinoids, full-spectrum hemp oil contains an array of cannabinoids, as well as many essential vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, fiber, flavonoids, and terpenes.
