CBD questions

What is CBD?

Cannabis plants contain 113 naturally occurring chemical compounds called cannabinoids. CBD (short for cannabidiol) is one of the main cannabinoids, accounting for around 40% of its extract.

Is CBD legal?

Yes. CBD is 100% legal to buy, sell and take in the UK.

What does CBD do?

Our bodies naturally have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which plays a vital role in our physiology, mood, and overall health.

Consuming CBD provides additional regulatory molecules to help the ECS function more efficiently and help our bodies maintain an internal balance called homeostasis.

Homeostasis keeps our bodies healthy and can help to alleviate symptoms, such as anxiety, insomnia, and depression that are directly related to the ECS.

CBD isn’t a medicine that's intended to treat, cure, or prevent any diseases. It's a food supplement that promotes everyday wellbeing.

Will CBD make me high?

No. THC is the cannabinoid that makes people feel 'high'. CBD is not psychoactive and is not intoxicating.

What's the optimal dose of CBD to take?

There's no one-size fits all. With CBD less is always more! We recommend that you start off with a small dose and maintain this amount for a few days. Observe the effects it has on your mind and body and if you feel relief then you’ve found your optimum dose, if not then increase the dosage.

Can you overdose on CBD?

No. CBD is 100% safe to consume, isn’t toxic to the body and doesn’t have any documented fatal overdose levels.

The National Cancer Institute confirmed that “Because cannabinoid receptors, unlike opioid receptors, are not located in the brainstem areas controlling respiration, lethal overdoses from Cannabis and cannabinoids do not occur.”

Are there any side effects?

No. CBD isn’t toxic to the body and doesn’t have any documented fatal overdose levels.

A scientific study in 2011 found that CBD doses of 1,500 mg per day were well tolerated in humans. Similarly, the Department of Health and Human Services advises that ‘no signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of cannabidiol to healthy volunteers’.

Can CBD be taken with other medications or during pregnancy?

Always consult with your Doctor before using food supplements.
