What is Cannabidiol?2018-11-23T20:32:37+00:00

CBD stands for cannabidiol and is one of the numerous compounds – or cannabinoids – in the marijuana or hemp plant. Cannabinoids act on the cannabinoid receptors within the endocannabinoid system – a system within the body which helps to promote homeostasis – essentially, helping your body to stay balanced.

What is Hemp?2018-10-25T20:33:12+00:00

Hemp`s scientific name is Cannabis Sativa L., but although belonging to the same family, `hemp` and `marijuana` are actually very different. The main difference is that the hemp plant has been bred over the years to serve the purposes for which it is needed – which could be a number of things – from creating rope, to paper, to high CBD hemp oil. Hemp naturally has a high level of CBD and is therefore perfect for those who are looking to create CBD rich products. According to US law, the term `industrial hemp` is used for Cannabis sativa L., with a THC level of less than 0.3%.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?2018-10-25T20:33:12+00:00

THC is the compound which is psychoactive in the cannabis plant – the part that gives consumers the `high`. It is also illegal in a lot of states to have products with over 0.3% THC. CBD is not psychoactive and is usually legal, even at high levels.

Will hemp CBD make me high?2018-10-25T20:33:12+00:00

No. It is the THC compound in the cannabis plant which is psychoactive and will make you a high.

Some people report feeling slightly more alert after consuming hemp CBD, and there is no evidence of it being addictive.

Can you overdose on CBD?2018-10-25T20:33:36+00:00

Is hemp CBD legal?2018-10-25T20:33:36+00:00

Different states and different countries around the world have their own laws about the legality of CBD. It is important to check your local laws before buying CBD, and it is important to remember to differentiate between CBD and THC. There are many places where, for example, CBD may be bought and sold, but the level of THC must be less than 0.3%. Our hemp CBD has higher amounts of CBD and lower amounts of THC.

What is the best way to take hemp CBD?2018-10-25T20:33:36+00:00

When you vape CBD, you inhale the vaporised oil, meaning that the CBD enters into the bloodstream in the quickest and one of the purest ways – through the lungs – giving you good control over how much you consume.
Sublingual consumption involves putting drops of oil under your tongue, also giving you good control over dosage and working quickly.

No. Hemp seed oil is made from cold pressed hemp seeds and whilst it is nutritionally beneficial to those who consume it, it contains no CBD. Hemp CBD oil is extracted especially from the flower and not from the seeds, is rich in CBD and is a medicinal product.

How is the CBD extracted from the plant?2018-10-25T20:33:48+00:00

One of two methods can be used to extract the CBD from the hemp plant. Some producers use alcohol or ethanol, by soaking the hemp in a solvent (like grain alcohol). Once the hemp has been soaked, the liquid contains CBD and other cannabinoids which were in the plant. Producers can then evaporate the solvent, leaving the CBD oil behind.
The other method is through the use of CO2. The process involves forcing CO2 at a specific temperature through the hemp plant, which extracts the CBD oil.

Why does the price vary so much?2018-11-23T20:34:08+00:00

Prices of hemp CBD oil products can vary greatly. This is down to a number of factors – where the hemp was grown (and whether it is organic, or if the farmers used pesticides or herbicides), the concentration of CBD in each product, the potency and purity of the CBD within the product, the amount of CBD in a product, the method of CBD extraction, whether it has been lab tested and the other ingredients used in a product.
