Frequently asked Questions About CBD
Unfortunately, we cannot give out advice on using cannabis oil for anything medical related. We sell our CBD products as food supplements to help support and maintain a healthy body and mind and it’s always important to do your own thorough research-depending on what you are using CBD for, before trying it out.
With that said, you do not have to be ‘ill’ to use CBD it is for everyone no matter how healthy you may be. It provides a source of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids like Omega-3, protein and it’s organically grown too.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle while incorporating CBD into your routine is the best thing you can do to protect yourself from all forms of illness.
Regardless of your age, CBD has dozens of wellness benefits. Many of us realise the important of “balance” in our daily lives. Balancing work and play is a critical part of our physical and mental health. Using CBD as a daily supplement is a great way to support your bodies Endocannabinoid system and keep it in balance so why not use it as a preventative!
People often believe that because CBD is associated with the cannabis plant, that if they take it will make them “stoned” like smoking cannabis does! WRONG!
CBD is simply a non-intoxicating component which has enormous potential. Your state of mind etc. will not change if you take CBD at all. Although it can make changes in the body- this isn’t one of them.
The way we extract CBD allows us to pull all of the natural and beneficial nutrients out of the cannabis plant without getting anything nasty in there as well. Not only are you NOT getting high, but you are getting a product from us that’s natural and safe.
CBD is legal in the UK as it is extracted from industrial low THC Hemp Plants. Hemp is a plant that is safe, natural, and non-toxic. It can be used for almost anything.
When it comes to High THC cannabis, however, it is still illegal to use it or possess it. Maybe this is why people tend to get confused. Cannabidiol (CBD) though, is not considered a controlled substance in the UK. It is therefore 100% legal and can be freely distributed in the UK without restrictions.
If you want to use CBD products it is TOTALLY legal to do so.
When it comes to cannabis, drugs tests pick up THC (the compound that does make you high). Drugs test are carried out because THC is known for the feelings of euphoria it provides and this is the illegal part!
Our CBD products have been tested at a third party laboratory and only contain trace amounts of THC that are within the legal limit. Therefore you will not have a problem passing a drugs test
Remember, CBD isn’t even being tested for and most work places aren’t going to have a problem with you using it- it’s non-psychoactive
All of this said, individuals who take UNUSUALLY large doses of CBD (100-200mg of full spectrum oil daily) the test could show as a false positive. Its the same if you eat poppy seeds.
We do have lab certificates if you needed to prove you were just using CBD however in all the years we have had the business not one customer has failed a drug test.
Just because the cannabis plant can be known for recreational use that does not mean that it automatically makes it addictive. It is true however that you can become addicted to cannabis but what about CBD, which is made from the other cannabis plant which is hemp.
CBD is categorically not addictive, so let your worries fade away!
A report last year by the World Health Organization declared that CBD is non-addictive, writing, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential” and that “CBD is well-tolerated and safe for human consumption.
CBD is not addictive as it contains no/very little THC. THC is the ingredient that causes cannabis to be addictive in some people.
When it comes to taking CBD with other medications, we suggest if you are unsure, check with a medical professional before using it as it can, on occasion, interact with other medicines.
CBD can inhibit the hepatic metabolism of drugs which means if it is in the liver at the same time as CBD then the CBD can flush it out of the system.
It is always best to leave an hour in between medication and CBD so as an example medication at 9am and CBD either 8am or 10am. This way the CBD will not interfere with medication.
Since CBD cannabinoids naturally occur in the body they therefore naturally work with the endocannabinoid system to control communication between cells and mediate body function. This means CBD is perfectly safe for children.
CBD is non-psychoactive so your child will categorically not get high from using it.
Without children, CBD might never have received as much investigation and study as it has. By providing such unique nutritional content, CBD hemp oil earns a place among other favourite daily vitamins and supplements to give to your family each day.
