Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of many naturally-occurring cannabinoids found in hemp. Unlike the more famous THC cannabinoid, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it’s not a chemical that can cause you to feel high.
CBD is currently being researched as a potential treatment for a range of conditions, including chronic pain and a variety of neurological diseases. Although research is still in its early stages, current studies of CBD show that it may have promising results as a natural treatment.
The word cannabinoid refers to every chemical substance, regardless of structure or origin, that joins the cannabinoid receptors of the body and brain and that have similar effects to those produced by the Cannabis Sativa plant. There are 3 main groups: endocannabinoids (produced in our bodies), phytocannabinoids (produced in plants) & synthetic cannabinoids (man-made).
CBD oil is typically made using strains of hemp that are high in cannabinoids such as CBD, but low in THC. Because of this, most CBD oil either contains no THC at all, or only a tiny quantity of THC that cannot trigger any of the known psychoactive effects of cannabis.
Marijuana and hemp are often used interchangeably, but the two terms refer to very different strains of the cannabis plant.
Both marijuana and hemp are part of the cannabis plant family. However, the plant strains that are commonly referred to as marijuana typically have a high THC content, with a lower content of other cannabinoids such as CBD.
Hemp, on the other hand, is rich in cannabinoids such as CBD but only contains a small amount of THC. This makes hemp ideal for use as a source of CBD for products such as oil tinctures.
There are a few different ways to consume CBD oil. The first, using it sublingually, allows CBD to quickly enter into your bloodstream and take effect.
Other options include applying CBD topically in the form of a body oil or lotion, as well as using CBD-based capsules. While these are both effective, it typically takes longer for the CBD to get into your bloodstream and start working.
CBD oil is legal to purchase and use in the UK and European Union. This means that if you’re travelling within this area, you are not breaking the law.
Despite this, it’s important to be aware that airport authorities and other travel authorities may mistake CBD oil for illegal cannabis. If you’re carrying CBD products with you while you travel, make sure they’re inside the original packaging that states they are CBD-based products.
Many countries still ban CBD oil, with some placing strict penalties on the possession of CBD and other cannabis products. If you’re travelling outside the UK or European Union, check the local laws for your destination before you travel with any CBD products.
This extraction method produces an oil that contains CBD and a range of other cannabinoids. “Full spectrum” CBD oil also contains cannabis terpenes, which may give the oil certain anti-inflammatory properties.
Because full spectrum CBD contains terpenes in addition to cannabidiol, it’s often seen as a more effective form of CBD for treating inflammation. Full spectrum CBD products often contain traces of THC, although the total THC content is extremely low.

Most research suggests that there are no negative side effects of CBD. All CBD does is regulate the receptors across your body. If you feel thirsty after use, it’s because you are dehydrated. Feeling tired means you’re fatigued. CBD doesn’t cause these feelings. All it does is ensure homeostasis across your endocannabinoid receptors.
Something being industrial doesn’t mean it can’t be organic. Hemp grown organically without pesticides and chemical/biological tampering is organic. But it still needs to be processed industrially.
All this means is that processing is done on a larger scale, taking the organic material and using industrial processes to create huge quantities of refined CBD for use in all of our products.
The endocannabinoid system is a unique communications system found in the brain and body that affects many important functions. It is made up of both endocannabinoids and the pathways they interact with. Together they work to regulate a number of activities, including mood, memory, sleep and appetite, the goal being to reach homeostasis.
They are natural aromatic oils that colour cannabis varieties with distinctive flavours like citrus, berry, mint, and pine. They may play a key role in differentiating the effects of various cannabis strains – some might promote relaxation and stress-relief, while others potentially promote focus and acuity. There are many factors that may influence the development of terpenes in plants, including climate, age, fertilizers & soil type
