What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol (can·na·bid·i·ol). A natural extract of the hemp plant that is legal and non-intoxicating (no psychoactive or addictive effects).
CBD is different from THC, which is psychoactive component found predominantly in marijuana. Our CBD oil is derived from industrial hemp, and produces no, or very low, traces of THC—less than 0.03% to be exact.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
The Cannabis family has several different breeds, yet it is most infamously known for marijuana (“weed”), hence the confusion between hemp and marijuana. Hemp ( Cannabis Sativa ) and marijuana ( Cannabis Indica ) are two varieties of the cannabis plant.
In its application, hemp and marijuana serve completely different purposes. Marijuana, as it is widely known, is used for medicinal or recreational purposes. Hemp is used in a variety of other applications that marijuana can't. These include healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothing, and accessories. Overall, hemp is known to have over 25,000 different applications!
So in summary- hemp is high in CBD and low in THC while marijuana is high in THC and low in CBD.
Is CBD legal in the UK?
Yes! CBD oil extracted from hemp is absolutely legal in the UK. While almost all cannabinoids are controlled substances under the Misuse of Drugs Act, CBD - or cannabidiol as it is also known - is not. Industrial hemp may be grown under licence in the UK. It is a strain of the cannabis plant that contains little or no THC, but does contain CBD.
Will I get high?
Not at all! CBD has very low content of THC, it is completely non-psychoactive. CBD is non addictive.
If you are new to CBD, we recommend you start with a low dose and build up over a number of weeks until you find the dosage that best suits your needs. You can start with a few drops per day of our standard strength CBD oil and build up if necessary.
Our CBD oil comes in different strengths – our standard strength has 500mg of CBD per 10ml bottle and our higher strength has 1,000mg of CBD per 10ml bottle.

For best results, simply place the correct quantity of drops under your tongue using the dropper and hold the CBD oil in place for a minimum of 60 seconds. The 60 second hold allows for absorption via the blood vessels underneath your tongue – efficiently bypassing first-pass metabolism. Once 60 seconds has passed, swallow the CBD oil.
Remember, we are all different and our bodies can react to supplements in different ways, so again we suggest that you start low and build up over time.
