WHAT IS CBD (CANNABIDIOL)?
CBD, also known as Cannabidiol is one of the 113 active cannabinoids recognized inside the Cannabis Sativa L genus of the hemp plant, an herbaceous flowering plant that originally is indigenous to Eastern Asia however has been grown throughout the world for centuries.
CBD on its own does not have an intoxicating effect on humans or animals. When THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is left inside of the CBD Oil, it causes the feeling of being ‘high’. CBD is a natural alternative to potentially alleviate or possibly minimize many health problems such as joint problems, arthritis, digestion issues, IBS, pain, inflammation, appetite, allergies, and more.
WHY IS FULL SPECTRUM IMPORTANT?
CBD is only one of over 100 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Full-spectrum CBD oil includes all the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, but with only trace amounts of levels of THC because of the types of plants we grow. These cannabinoids work together with the CBD cannabinoid to benefit your body in ways that CBD isolate alone cannot. This is referred to as the “entourage effect,” where the groups of cannabinoids and terpenes are more effective together. Full-spectrum CBD also contains all the vitamins, minerals and omega-3s that occur in hemp plants.
WHAT ARE CANNABINOIDS?
Cannabinoids are natural chemicals found in the hemp plants that interact with different receptors in the body to produce a wide variety of benefits and effects. There are over 100 cannabinoids in the hemp plant, but the two most common cannabinoids are THC and CBD. Each cannabinoid reacts differently with different receptors in the brain and body, which is why THC and CBD offer different physical and mental effects.
WHAT ARE TERPENES?
Terpenes are the natural compounds responsible for the unique aromas and flavors of all plants. Some terpenes, many of them found in CBD, are believed to also have healing properties that impact the benefit of the plant on the body. For example, a common terpene in hemp plants is Myrcene, which gives the plant its earthy aroma, and its relaxation properties are known to be beneficial for inflammation, pain and insomnia. This, along with many other terpenes in hemp & cannabis, is what makes the plant so special.
WHAT IS THE “ENTOURAGE EFFECT”?
The entourage effect describes the reaction that occurs when all the compounds of the cannabis plant work together in the body which results in a synergistic effect that makes them more effective than when any of the components are taken alone.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
According to ongoing medical research, humans have an Endocannabinoid System, consisting of certain receptors that are present on cells throughout the body. CBD interacts with these receptors in an array of ways, resulting in differing effects in each person. For some, ingesting CBD calms and relaxes them. For others, it helps them focus and increase alertness. Medical studies show it can possibly aid the management and relief of many health conditions.
HOW WILL CBD HELP ME?
CBD and CBD Oil products have numerous potential benefits for both the mind and body. Ongoing medical studies show the significant positive effects of ingesting CBD oil, drinking CBD drinks, or applying it topically. If you’re looking for a way to cope with various long or short-term ailments CBD has shown significant improvements in skin problems, pain management, PTSD, insomnia, stress and anxiety, muscle tension, and more then CBD is fast becoming the popular
alternative to traditional medicines.
HOW SHOULD I TAKE CBD?
CBD can be introduced into your lifestyle very easily. Our products come in different formats and strengths from teas and coffees, edible sweets, ingestible oils, and topical gels. Each has its unique application or consumption method (refer to packaging for best use). For instance, the tea bags are to be steeped in pre-boiling water (80 degrees) for up to 1-4 minutes – one bag per mug. The CBD Infused Oils can be placed under the tongue and left for 1 minute before swallowing. Each one is as unique as the next and has dosage instructions on the packaging for surety. The FSA recommends no more than 70MG CBD per day unless advised otherwise by a medical professional.
HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD I TAKE?
We recommend starting with the lowest serving size suggested on the bottle, 1-2 times per day. See how you feel and take more as needed.
WHEN SHOULD I TAKE CBD?
Listen to your body, CBD can be taken anytime of the day. Most people will either take CBD in the morning for a focused, centered, calm, and pain-free day, or at night, for a restful sleep and restoration of the body, mind and spirit. Our SLEEP line should only be used at night to avoid daytime drowsiness.
IS CBD DRUG-FREE?
CBD is legal to purchase in the UK as long as it contains less than 0.01% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), this is the main psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in the cannabis plant, and it causes the ‘high’ sensation. Our CBD products are not psychoactive and have no negative effects on your state of mind.
DOES CBD HAVE ANY NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS?
CBD does not have any negative side effects and users of our products have not experienced any negative side effects. It is always recommended to stay within the dosage printed on the product packaging. Introduce the product to your system a little at a time and gradually increase the dose, until you find your perfect dosage for your health and wellness needs.
IS YOUR PRODUCT ORGANIC?
Transparency, Traceability, and Trust are our primary considerations for anyone looking to buy CBD Oils or CBD infused products.
Our farms in the EU use only organic soils that are nutrient-rich and use only clean ground water from natural water sources. During the growth cycles, our on-site team of herbalists continuously monitors the environment and growth cycles to ensure the crop is of premium standard. We are passionate about improving the well-being of our users through our full spectrum CBD Oil and guarantee quality from seed to shelf.
HOW IS YOUR HEMP GROWN?
Our hemp has been GAP certified and is grown using organic and regenerative farming practices. As part of our organic standards, our crops are non-GMO, and we do not use synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Additionally, our regenerative standards go beyond organic practices and we use sustainable farming methods. Regenerative agriculture is all about increasing organic matter in the soil to restore ecological balance, maximizing regenerative growth and aiding in higher water retention to balance seasons of heavy rains and prolonged dry periods. This further helps eliminate the need for chemical inputs and helps the soil—and the plants within it—thrive.
WHERE IS YOUR HEMP GROWN?
Our hemp is currently grown on beautiful small hemp farms in Spain. We are also working on plans to expand our business and cultivation of this miracle plant to other regions where it can benefit other communities.
CAN THE COLOR OF MY CBD OIL VARY?
You might notice subtle color variations, but this is normal. We test each batch for efficacy and purity, so color differences do not reflect a change to the overall quality of the oil. Nature isn’t standardized and neither are her products. We do not use additives or dyes, so the natural color of the oil might show subtle differences due to seasonal variations.
WHAT ARE ADAPTOGENS?
“Adaptogen” is a term used in herbal medicine to describe a natural herbal substance that is believed to help the body adapt to stress and normalize bodily processes. We use adaptogens like ashwagandha in our products to further help protect the body from the effects of stress.
WHAT DOES “CO2 EXTRACTED” MEAN?
CO2 extraction uses pressurized carbon dioxide (the byproduct of breathing) to extract all usable parts of the hemp plant, such as waxes, terpenes and, of course, cannabinoids like CBD. Unlike other extraction techniques, like chemical extractions, this method preserves the valuable terpenes and doesn’t leave behind any chemical residue.
DO YOU PROVIDE LAB TESTS FOR YOUR PRODUCTS?
All our CBD Oils and CBD Infused products are packed full of active phytocannabinoids and terpenes. They are laboratory tested with full certifications. Any relevant claims Our products are 100% Natural, 100% Organic, Additive-Free, Gluten-Free, and Vegan. We provide our lab results on our website, you can find them on each of our product pages.
WILL TAKING CBD CAUSE ME TO FAIL A DRUG TEST?
In clinical trials, the oral administration of CBD does not result in detectable THC blood concentrations, and most experts in the field do not believe that it shares any similarities to THC or the THC metabolite following absorption. Specifically, a 2021 clinical trial concluded that subjects consuming oral doses of 300mg of CBD showed evidence of THC bioconversion and tested negative for the presence of THC in plasma. Therefore, the administration of CBD alone should not trigger a positive drug test for the carboxy-THC metabolite.
WILL CBD GET ME HIGH?
No. Our hemp is grown from seeds that produce plants that are extremely low in THC and high in CBD. As a result, our CBD products have a THC concentration of less than 0.01% to meet EU and UK regulations. This trace amount of THC, when combined with other natural cannabinoids and terpenes found in hemp plants, work together to maximize the efficacy of our products. This is known as the entourage effect.
DOES CBD INTERACT WITH MEDICATIONS?
Since everyone is different and medications vary, we always recommend consulting a healthcare provider if you are taking other medications.
DO YOUR PRODUCTS CONTAIN DAIRY, EGGS OR SOY?
DO ANY PRODUCTS CONTAIN PEANUTS?
No way. However we do use coconut oil in our tinctures so please check your allergens.
IS THERE GLUTEN IN ANY OF THE PRODUCTS?
Not in a million years.
