Frequently Asked Questions
No, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects and the minimal percentage of THC (usually <0.2%) does not affect you. CBD products are not the same presentation of cannabis that would be used for illicit or illegal drug use.
The CBD used in products such as CBD oils, e-liquids, tinctures, creams, and drops is usually extracted from hemp plants and not medical cannabis. This is because of its higher CBD concentration and lower THC content.
No, you will not test positive on regular drug tests because they usually screen for THC. However, if the test is designed to test for all cannabinoids, the result will be positive. Remember, CBD Oil is perfectly legal in the UK and the USA so being tested positive for CBD is not a crime. CBD products are used for their natural health benefits- they are not an illicit drug.
No, CBD products do not put you at risk of overdosing, even if you ingest or apply more than advised / prescribed. CBD products bought from a reputable stockist ensure you only use high quality, organic ingredients. There are no additives used in our products that cause any risk to your health and well-being.
Dosing CBD correctly involves many different variables. We recommend taking 3 to 9 drops of the oil sublingually, (under the tongue) 3 times a day. However we encourage customers new to CBD start with a low dosage and increase it until you feel the desired relief. If you suffer from a more severe condition you should discuss it with your doctor or a doctor specialised in Cannabinoid treatments.
Generally, this answer can be answered with a “no”. There have been very few reports about bad side effects of CBD. Please ensure any CBD products purchased are from a reputable provider were stock can be traced to the source. Please follow directions given on the product purchased. CBD products may interfere with some medications, we therefore advise you to talk to your doctor or a doctor specialised in Cannabinoid treatments before using CBD products.
Although THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol) are both derivative components of the cannabis plant, they are vastly different when it comes to the effects they have on the body. CBD does not have the same intoxicating effects as THC, is legal in the UK and one of the main reasons people choose CBD is for pain management. CBD also blocks some of the intoxicating effects of THC by binding to the cannabinoid receptors, prohibiting the THC from binding to those receptors and resulting in a lessened psychoactive impact. THC is not legal in the UK; therefore, all our products contain the legal amount (<0.3%) of THC. Higher doses of CBD can result in a variety of experiences that can differ from person to person.
Terpenes and terpenoids are different compounds found within CBD products. Terpenes are the natural compounds found within the cannabis plant while terpenoids have been chemically altered through a drying and curing process. Terpenoids are present within full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD products and each one has its own unique properties.
Terpenes included within CBD products:
CBD products that vary in their chemical composition will act differently within the body and you will feel varying effects that are dependent on this.
For example, a CBD product containing several naturally occurring cannabis plant extracts, such as terpenes, terpenoids and other cannabinoids (including up to 0.2% THC) is full spectrum CBD.
In contrast, broad spectrum CBD is typically entirely THC free, but also contains several other cannabis plant compounds. There may sometimes be trace amounts of THC in broad spectrum CBD, but the levels within are negligible.
