Thinking about trying CBD or would like to know a bit more about it? Here are some frequently asked questions about CBD to clear any misconceptions about the plant
CBD, or cannabidiol, as it’s otherwise known, is a naturally occurring compound extracted from the cannabis plant. There are many chemicals within the cannabis sativa plant and these are called cannabinoids. Two of the most well-known are THC and CBD.
THC is the psychoactive chemical that produces a ‘high’. CBD however, is not known to cause any psychoactive effects. To be legal in the UK, CBD products must contain less than 0.2% THC and therefore CBD products allow you to experience the benefits of the other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant without experiencing any psychoactive effects.
CBD oil drops contain cannabidiol suspended in MCT oil and are designed to be taken under the tongue or added to food and drinks. CBD capsules also contain CBD suspended in MCT oil, but are designed to be ingested. Our products can be taken as a food supplement but are not medicines.
In short, no. As previously stated the two main compounds CBD and THC. CBD is the non psychoactive portion of the plant which means you will not get the head high or euphoric effects. Your mind stays clear whilst from neck down you’ll feel relaxed.
Cannabis plants containing high levels of THC are illegal in the UK. Our CBD products contain only traces of THC (less than 0.2%) which will not have any psychoactive effect, and is completely legal

You’ve spent some time shopping online for CBD oil, and you’ve found tremendous variation in price from one vendor to another. How is it that the same product can be so much cheaper from some vendors than others? The answer, of course, is that the product isn’t necessarily the same. CBD products can differ greatly in how they’re sourced, extracted and made into finished products – and before you buy CBD oil from any vendor, you owe it to yourself to find out as much as you can about where the product comes from.
