Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD and how does it work?

CBD stands for “cannabidiol”, and it is one of a number of natural cannabinoids derived from the cannabis sativa or hemp plant (“phytocannabinoids”). CBD can be extracted from the hemp plant and prepared into a range of products for ingestion or topical use, and is considered to have a range of wellness benefits.

 

Is it just cannabis? Will I get high?

The short answer is No!

Cannabis contains dozens of cannabinoid chemicals, including both CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis — what gives a “high”. CBD has many systemic whole-body effects, but it does not have a psychoactive effect. CBD products that don’t contain THC have many potential benefits, so you can feel better but don’t need to worry about getting high.

 

How could CBD help me?

Your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) works with compounds that your body produces (“endocannabinoids”) to balance and regulate healthy functions throughout its systems. As a plant-based cannabinoid, CBD can support your body’s own ECS to function more effectively. Users of CBD products report beneficial effects across a range of areas including relaxation, relief of symptoms of anxiety, stress, sleeplessness as well as pain relief and the aesthetic benefits of its natural anti-inflammatory properties.

Users of CBD products report positive impacts on many levels, including:

  • Anxiety Relief
  • Aids Sleep
  • Pain Relief
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Sport Recovery
  • Depression
  • Digestive Issues

 

What’s the best way to take CBD and how?

As a popular wellness supplement, CBD is now sold in many forms, with different strengths and methods of usage. The way that you take CBD affects how your body absorbs it — how quickly you feel effects, and how long for. We clearly break down the strength and administration of all our specific CBD products so that you can select one that’s right for you.

 

How much? A note on dosage

Everybody is an individual and every body is unique, so there is no ‘one size fits all’ dosage of CBD. We suggest that you start with the lowest dosage specified for a particular product and increase if necessary, as you learn how your own body responds.

 

Oils and tinctures

CBD oil is made by extracting the oil from the hemp plant. The extracted CBD is combined with a ‘base’ or ‘carrier’ oil, such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil which makes it easier for your body to absorb. As well as cannabidiol, CBD oil contains a host of other beneficial natural compounds including proteins, fatty acids and vitamins.

A CBD tincture carries its CBD in 60-70% distilled alcohol, which acts as a preservative and extends the bioavailability of your CBD so it stays good on your shelf for longer. CBD tinctures are in general made from high CBD strains of hemp.They also often contain essential oils such as peppermint oil to give a more pleasant flavour.

Both CBD oils and tinctures can be taken discreetly and easily by placing a few drops under your tongue, where we have tiny capillaries that absorb the compounds quickly, bypassing the digestive system.

Many users find that CBD oils or tinctures work for them in finding relief from symptoms of anxiety, sleeplessness, stress and pain.

Vaping Inhaling vaporized CBD oil through vaping is an increasingly popular mode of taking CBD. When you vape, CBD is absorbed through the lungs and moves directly to the bloodstream, so it’s one of the fastest ways to experience the effect of CBD and it will leave your bloodstream quicker.

Capsules, Softgels and Edibles Capsules and softgels are a controlled way to digest CBD as you know exactly how much you are taking. They also have the advantage of avoiding the distinctive hemp taste that’s noticeable when ingesting CBD under the tongue. Capsules and softgels release CBD into your body through digestion and therefore have a slower release and longer-lasting effects.

CBD edibles have a similar effect to capsules as they go through the digestive system before being absorbed. Edibles come in a variety of forms and flavours these days — from protein bars to gummies — and are a great-tasting way to get your CBD.

Capsules and softgels may have beneficial effects on all the conditions listed above, but are particularly suggested for inflammation and digestive disorders. Those experiencing issues of digestion and discomfort such as IBS or IBD, may also consider CBD suppositories, which are a very direct and effective way to absorb CBD.

Creams and lotions

CBD’s whole body effects aren’t only found by ingesting it. There are increasing numbers of topical applications that take advantage of CBD’s unique nourishing and anti-inflammatory properties to provide relief from symptoms of external conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and other skin inflammatory processes. CBD may also alleviate muscular and joint pain.
