What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a natural compound extracted from the hemp plant. Ingesting CBD extract through oil, capsule or topical form reacts with your body’s regulatory system, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and can help to keep your body in balance.

For more information about what CBD is take a look at our What is CBD guide.

What does CBD help with?

Just as people take vitamins to supplement their body, CBD is taken to support the endocannabinoid system. The ECS helps to regulate the immune system, bodily functions such as sleeping and is integral in balancing mood, anxiety and even sex drive. 

Is CBD addictive?

No, CBD isn’t addictive as it does not produce an excessive amount of dopamine for the body to crave. CBD doesn’t produce intoxicating effects unlike that of other varieties of cannabis, meaning that it does not have addiction-related effects.

Does CBD oil get you high?

No, CBD products do not get you high. As CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant, people often wrongly assume products that include it will make you feel high. However, it is the THC component of the cannabis plant that gives you a euphoric feeling of being high is why it is strictly regulated in the UK and may often see some products claim to be “THC Free”. On the other hand the CBD component actually helps your body’s regulating system to keep it balanced.

How do you use CBD Oil?

We advise you to start with just one drop or spray of oil as part of your bedtime routine if you’re new to CBD, this can slowly be increased until you find the dosage that works for you. The sprayheads and pipettes provided with our CBD oils makes measuring out dosage quick and simple.

How much CBD should I take?

Working out how much CBD to take and when to take it can be difficult! Especially because different dosages of CBD work for different people depending on their height, weight, health and lifestyle.
