How can CBD help me?

What is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol (can-nab-bi-dial) is primarily found in hemp plants and is currently being researched by doctors and scientists all over the world. CBD is non psychoactive, non-intoxicating and has no potential to cause overdose or substance abuse. It has also been removed from the WADA (world anti-doping agency) prohibited substance list. We can see the CBD trend growing overseas and we are here to bring the purest CBD to the UK.
Our premium full spectrum CBD oil is organic, non-GMO (Genetically Modified), vegan friendly, pet friendly, child friendly and ethically soured from the UK and EU.
CBD is well tolerated by many people and is safe to ingest. It has little to no side effects and can have massive benefits to your everyday life.
The human body contains a special endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is involved in a variety of bodily functions such as: sleep, pain modulation, memory, appetite and immune system response. Our bodies produce endocannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, which absorb the cannabinoid to help treat the root cause of the issue not just mask the associated symptoms. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and CB2 receptors are mostly commonly found in the peripheral nervous system (nerves that connect sensory organs to other organs, muscles and blood vessels) and associated immune system.
How do I take CBD?
CBD Oil, that is absorbed under the tongue, provides quick relief and takes about the 5 -20 minutes to be fully absorbed. Topical cream and balms take around 15- 30 minutes. When CBD is ingested with food it takes 30 mins - 2 hours to be absorbed.
Personal dosage is specific to each case. It depends on your body weight, tolerance and method of consumption. Our CBD comes in two forms: oil (dissolved under tongue or ingested with food) and a topical balm.
If you are new to CBD, we recommend starting with a small amount (1-10 oil drops per day) and increase dosage slowly reach to your desired dose specific to your case. Using an online CBD calculator is great guide for those who are cautious about their CBD dosage. The calculator takes both method of consumption and your symptoms into consideration when calculating dosage.
Full spectrum vs Isolates
Full spectrum oil is referred to as whole plant CBD meaning it contains other active cannabinoids found in the plant such as CBG (cannabigerol) and CBC (cannabichromene) which both hold significant value for human health.
Isolate is pure (CBD) that has been extracted out of the hemp plant and away from all other cannabinoids.
