Common CBD Questions
CBD is a pure plant extract, a food supplement, a herbal health booster that is more effective than anything we’ve experienced from nature before. CBD works by interacting with receptors in the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to help enhance its responses to factors such as stress, pain, inflammation, and fatigue. There are many uses for CBD oil – civilisations have used hemp (of which CBD oil is a derivative) for its restorative and remedial properties throughout the ages. However due to current UK law, CBD oil manufacturers aren’t allowed to lay claim to the benefits of this botanical supplement. Because we make CBD oil, our hands are tied by that restriction and so we invite you to do your own research on the numerous benefits of this natural herbal supplement. Have a look at this blog post to hear how some of our customers find their experience of using CBD oil and how it has enabled them to lead a lighter, brighter, more balanced lifestyle.
A landmark study in 2020 revealed that CBD does not impair driving. This was pivotal because past studies had only looked at the effects of cannabis and not CBD (which unlike cannabis is free of the psychoactive compound THC). Whilst more research is currently being carried out to ascertain further whether CBD affects driving, we look forward to updating you as more research comes to light.
Whilst lowering anxiety levels and feeling more relaxed can aid a peaceful uninterrupted night’s sleep, using CBD does not leave you feeling sleepy like some non-natural/ pharmaceutical sleep aids can. Excessive sleepiness is often found when ingesting the psychoactive compound THC (found in cannabis) and because THC is only present in minute quantities in CBD products, that heavy drowsiness is not an issue. Incorporating a natural botanical supplement like CBD into a healthy lifestyle involving good nutrition and mindfulness can provide the most restful night’s sleep but won’t make you feel excessively drowsy or with feelings of fatigue.
CBD is legal in the UK. It is a natural product and its association with the cannabis plant can lead to some confusion regarding its legality.
Extensive research has gone into the safety of CBD based products, and its legalisation in 2015 brought with it strict government protocols for ensuring the safety of the consumer. CBD is a natural plant extract and it is entirely safe to consume.
