CBD stands for cannabidiol. There are over 113 currently known cannabinoids, and far more which are yet  to be identified. Each cannabinoid plays a role in the endocannabinoid system.

All humans and animals have an endocannabinoid system inside their bodies. This works in a very similar way to our blood circulation or nervous system. The endocannabinoid systems most important function is to maintain balance and homeostasis within our bodies.

CBD oil provides a natural pain relief and has anti-inflammatory properties. It promotes general wellbeing and acts to protect our bodies against disease and degeneration. CBD oil can reduce symptoms of many health conditions. These can include: Chronic Pain, PTSD, Stress, IBS, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, Insomnia, Epilepsy, Osteoporosis, Addiction, Arthritis, Asthma, Depression, Parkinson’s and Cancer.

The ingredients in our products vary from product to product, please read the label to ensure you’re not buying something that may cause a reaction. As some of our products do contain nut oil, we cannot guarantee the absence of cross-contamination of nut oil with our other products which may have been made at the same location.

The UK Foods Standards Agency(FSA) guidelines advise consumers not to take CBD oil, CBD capsules or any other CBD cannabinoid product when pregnant or while breastfeeding.

Yes, due to the nature of the extract all cannabis (hemp) based extracts will contain trace amounts of THC. Current UK rules state that any CBD product sold within the UK should contain no more than 0.2% THC. All our oils contain trace amounts which can be found on the lab reports. However, we also stock a THC FREE range for extra peace of mind for those involved in the emergency services, athletes and professionals.

The endocannabinoid system is a complex biological system in the body. Experts know that it impacts several major processes. It has three components: receptors, enzymes and endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids bind to receptors which exist throughout the body. There are two types of receptors: CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors are primarily in the central nervous system and are responsible for governing coordination, movement, pain, appetite, memory, mood and other functions. The CB2 receptors are in the peripheral nervous system, influencing pain and inflammation. After the enzymes break down the cannabinoids the endocannabinoids look to bind with receptors. Researchers believe that CBD does not directly attach itself to the receptor but influences it in some way. Activating these receptors is what allows for health benefits that people associate with the compound.

CBD will not give you a psychedelic high, you should not notice any fatigue, foggy thinking or feelings of euphoria. However, in order for CBD to work effectively, it will contain trace amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabidiol). The amount is so small that you will not feel any effects.

No, it is not possible to overdose on CBD oil.

No, CBD is not an addictive substance.

Yes, all our CBD products are legal in the UK as they contain 0.2% THC or less.

The two major categories of cannabis plants are Indica and Sativa and these can then be cross bread to create a third Hybrid category. Within these categories there are thousands of variations much like the grapes used to make wine. Each of the two main cultivars have different ratios of cannabinoids & terpenes– the naturally occurring chemical compounds that develop as the plant grows, which in turn results in their own range of effects on the body and mind, resulting in a wide range of benefits. Indica strains generally provide a sense of deep body relaxation. Sativa strains tend to provide a more energising experience.
