WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a naturally occurring chemical found in hemp plants. It’s currently being thoroughly studied by researchers all over the world.
CBD is defined as a phyto-cannabinoid, which means that it’s produced by plants. This chemical has a similar structure as anandamide, which is a cannabinoid produced by processes within the human body.
can i use cbd to treat?
Please let us stop you right there. We aren’t doctors, and we certainly can’t prescribe or recommend CBD products for ailments or illnesses.
how much cbd should i take?
We cannot make specific recommendations.
With any supplement, you should start low and increase the dose gradually over time.
CBD is from Hemp. How is this different from cannabis?
All cannabis is hemp. Not all hemp is cannabis. Hemp only becomes cannabis when it has more than 0.2% THC in its chemical makeup. The hemp we use has been bred to contain almost 0% THC and up to 30% CBD.
how are cbd crystals made?
CBD is made by extracting CBD oils from hemp plants, and then using heat and evaporation to remove impurities. Nothing needs to be added, only taken away.
The main two types of CBD currently are full spectrum and isolate. You can learn more about the differences between these tow types of CBD in the next question.
What is the difference between FULL SPECTRUM CBD and ISOLATED CBD?
Full Spectrum CBD is typically made up of equal amounts of multiple cannabinoids, usually each at around 5%, meaning that although full spectrum is CBD in it’s purest form, it doesn’t have the rich CBD content like Rich Hemp Extract, which contains around 85-89% CBD.
A full spectrum CBD is an extracted organic paste that contains CBD, other cannabinoids, lipids, flavonoids, terpenoids and other natural byproducts of plant growth. The exact makeup of a full spectrum CBD depends on the plant in question, leading to entirely different ratios from week to week, crop to crop and even batch to batch. Isolate CBD takes that full spectrum paste and isolates the CBD to remove all of the additional compounds. What’s left is an organic powder that’s almost entirely pure.
We only use Isolate in our Eliquid Range, our range of Tongue Drops are Full Spectrum CBD.
What is the difference between industrial and organic?
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.
How can you guarantee the purity as quality of your CBD?
We only use CBD crystals which come with recognised certification.
Is CBD a recreational drug?
No! CBD has no psychoactive properties, and is a natural supplement.
CBD is currently legal in the UK. If you aren’t in the UK, or plan to take any of our products out of the country, we advise finding out the legal status of CBD products in your destination.
Will CBD react with any other medicines?
Again, we are not doctors. If you have any concerns, please consult with a medical professional.
Are your products tested on animals?
None of our cosmetics or other products are tested on animals.
Are the any side-affects of ingesting CBD?
As reiterated we cannot make any medical claims about CBD. If you are concerned, please use a search engine to find any of the dozens of reports online, or consult your doctor.
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.
Where does your CBD come from!
All of our CBD is extracted from hemp grown in the EU and the USA on fully regulated and certified farms.
What is CBD DISTILLATE?
CBD Distillate is a highly refined cannabis extract often derived from high CBD hemp flower and hemp biomass. CBD Distillate typically contains around 80% CBD with the balance including minor cannabinoids, terpenes and other plants oils and extracts
HOW DOES CBD MAKE YOU FEEL??
CBD OIL EFFECTS
You Might Know It Doesn’t Get You High, But How Does CBD Make You Feel?
For years, I was a concentrate-loving, daily herbivore. But, perhaps due to age or simply a change of interest, I found myself consuming cannabis more sparingly and opting for very different products. The newest go-to in my household stash? Cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD products & CBD extract, are available in our local store in Caerphilly and online as tinctures and oil infusions also in concentrated forms.
These infusions can be taken like a dietary supplement, enjoyed by consumers in low to moderate doses either regularly or as-needed. But how does CBD make you feel, really? The subtle effects of the cannabinoid may surprise you.
Unlike its more famous relative, THC, CBD does not produce intoxication. That doesn’t mean, however, that the compound won’t have affected your mind. The experience that CBD provides is far more subtle. While high-THC cannabis products can hit like a shot of whiskey, CBD works its magic in almost unnoticeable ways. Rather than feeling an immediate euphoria or sense of happiness, you may notice an absence of negative feelings and emotions after trying CBD.
After taking a look at the science, it’s no surprise that CBD inspires very different effects on the human body from its intoxicating sibling. The latter produces a psychotropic effect by hijacking the landing sites for neurotransmitters that the body produces naturally. CBD, on the other hand, boosts circulation of these neurotransmitters.
