CBD Faqs (frequently asked questions) are listed below. We appreciate the CBD market can be confusing particularly for first time users, therefore we created this list of CBD FAQs. The list endeavours to answer some of the most common questions we face from customers.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent of the cannabis plant. It is one of around 114 phytocannabinoids found inside the plant and it is used today to maintain overall wellness.
CBD can only be sold as a health supplement that promotes health, homeostasis and general well being. We suggest doing your own research on CBD and your particular ailment in order to make an informed decision on whether CBD will be beneficial to you.
No, unlike the other most prominent component of cannabis THC, CBD will not induce any sensations of feeling high. CBD is non-impairing and you will always remain in control after consumption.
Some of our products may contain traces of the psychoactive compound (THC) within the legal limit that may be detected in a drug test.

Yes CBD products are completely legal in the UK, EU and most countries worldwide, however due to MHRA regulations CBD products cannot be marketed for their medicinal benefits. All products sold on this site are food supplements. If you have any health related queries please refer to your general practicioner.
CBD interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system. The ECS is a neurotransmitter network of microscopic signalling receptors which are responsible for modulating many critical bodily functions, These functions include mood, appetite, pain, inflammation and also immune function.
Different CBD products are taken different ways but the most common way to benefit from CBD’s endocannabinoid properties is by taking oil under your tongue. You should endeavor to leave it in your mouth for around 90 seconds, as swallowing reduces the bioavailability of CBD. All products come with directions printed on the box and our product pages also contain directions for use.
CBD is very safe and side effects are very rare. You should always consult your doctor before modifying your diet or adding any new food supplements.
All our CBD products are from brands that use the highest possible standards in production. They are gently extracted using supercritical CO2, the gold standard in extraction for producing high quality, pure extracts wth zero residual solvents. This process is expensive and requires a high degree of expertise. In addition to this, UK law states that British hemp flower must be destroyed and only flower bought from abroad can be used for extraction. This exponentially increases costs for manufacturers.
They are ultimately the same plant. Industrial hemp is the non-impairing member of the cannabis family. It’s fibers have been traditionally used in textiles such as rope, paper, etc for hundreds of years.
Many of our products come with naturally occuring fats rich in omega 6 and 3, terpenes and flavonoids. Each product comes with it’s ingredients listed on their product page.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system.
The endocannabinoid system has been recently recognised as an important modulator system in the function of brain, endocrine, and immune tissues. It appears to play a very important regulatory role in the secretion of hormones related to reproductive function and response to stress.
Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids that occur naturally in the Cannabis plant such as CBD, CBG and THC. Endocannabinoids are produced naturally within the body.
All our products are tested by an independent third party testing under strict laboratory conditions using HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) analysis. The results of this testing for each product can be viewed here in the form of a certificate of analysis.
