FAQ


What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the primary cannabinoid in industrial cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.) In recent years there is increasing interest in the potential of CBD, which causes no psychotropic effects, is not psychoactive (cannot get you “high”). Its chemical formula is C21H30O2.

What are Cannabinoids?

There is close to 1250 unique chemical compounds identified in cannabis plants. Hundreds of them are terpenoids. Terpenoids are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their desirable aromas, flavours and other special properties. Cannabinoids are a sub-class of terpenoids. There are over 144 cannabinoids found in the plant.

What colour should CBD oil be?

CBD oil comes in a few colours, clear, golden and dark green.

Clear = isolate / water soluble, just CBD nothing else
Golden = either processed broad/full spectrum, seed or leaf extract usually topped up with isolate. Contains small traces of Terpenes and other phytocannabinoids
Dark Green = Organic, full spectrum, natural colour of the plant, cannabis sativa l. bud extracted. Contains all beneficial Terpenes and Phytocannabinods.

Safe CBD oil is Dark Green

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is extracted from the stalks and seeds of cannabis and hemp plants. CBD oil is a cannabis oil that contains significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD). The super-critical CO2 extraction process also preserves all other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and nutrients, and contains only trace amounts of THC (below 0.2%).

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of receptors throughout the human body that helps regulate physiological and cognitive processes. The ECS works with naturally-occurring cannabinoids in your body. There are two primary external cannabinoids, CBD and THC, and over 60 additional minor cannabinoids found in plant and other natural sources. CBD, the primary cannabinoid found in industrial hemp, works to maintain the ECS and support balance and well-being.

Why do people use CBD?

CBD is a natural alternative to wellness products that support balance and well-being.

Is CBD legal?

CBD is legal in the UK in the form of oils, edibles, ointments, and various other products. Safe CBD products are derived from cannabis sativa l plants, which are authorised for interstate sale under the 2014 Farm Bill.

What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana?

Hemp contains only CBD. Marijuana contains a full spectrum of CBD, CBDA, CBDV, CBGA, CBG, CBC, CBN. Hemp is a lot cheaper to produce than Marijuana. Both are members of the cannabis family but are cultivated and used differently.

How much CBD should I use? How often should I use it?

We recommend starting as low as 0.25ml and seeing what fits you. Everyone’s body is different and may require different amounts of CBD based on factors such as metabolism, activity level, medications you are taking, and overall health. There is currently no recommended daily value from the FDA,  you will need to determine the dose that fits your body and purpose. Begin with a low dose and increase or decrease your dosage based on signs from your body.

Which CBD product is the most suitable for me?

Your optimal flavor and method of administration is whatever you prefer most. However, your usage method may have an effect on the amount of CBD that gets absorbed into your system, and how long it takes to feel the effects. Oil drops placed under the tongue for at least 30 seconds allows optimal CBD release.

How are THC and CBD levels measured?

Chromatography is the process of breaking down the various constituents of a mixture into its various parts to be quantified and analysed independently. In the context of CBD, third-party laboratories use chromatography to test for CBD and THC levels, as well as other minor cannabinoids.

What is a CBD Test?

A CBD test assesses our product at all phases, from raw material to final product, to ensure that it adheres to our specifications and meets our rigorous quality standards. This confirms that our products contain exactly what they say on the label.

Drug Test – Will I test positive?

The THC concentrations in CBD oil are nowhere near enough to have any effect on you: industrial cannabis plants (Cannabis sativa L.) generally contain only a trace amounts of the THC that marijuana plants contain. THC is the cannabinoid that is targeted in drug tests. These tests look for the metabolic products of THC and begin with a simple urine test sample. The test uses antibodies to detect THC and the metabolite it produces, known by the rather complicated name of ‘11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH)’. If initial tests find that you have more than 50 Nanograms (ng) of these substances in your urine, a Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) test is carried out to confirm the result. This test targets the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite and is not sensitive to other cannabinoids including CBD.

Does CBD get you high?

CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that you cannot get “high” or intoxicated by consuming CBD oil drops, as well as any other raw natural product from cannabis sativa plants for that matter. Our CBD products are all made from cannabis sativa, which only contains trace amounts of THC (less than 0,2%), so there is no psychoactive effect from taking our products.

How much is safe to take and are there any side effects?

Daily doses should not exceed 70mg. For guidance 2ml of our CBD oil is 66.6mg.
In some cases CBD can have biphasic effects if you take too much such as diarrhoea, headache, nausea.

CBD oil comes in a few colours, clear, golden and dark green.
Clear = isolate / water soluble, just CBD nothing else
Golden = either processed broad/full spectrum, seed or leaf extract usually topped up with isolate. Contains small traces of Terpenes and other phytocannabinoids
Dark Green = Organic, Full Spectrum, natural colour of the plant, cannabis sativa l. bud extracted. Contains all beneficial Terpenes and Phytocannabinods.
