What is CBD and where does it come from?
CBD is an abbreviation of the word Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of the 113 (and counting) cannabinoids within the Cannabis plant. Cannabis is split into two known categories, Hemp and Marijuana.
All of our CBD products are derived from Hemp plants.
Does CBD get you high and is it legal?
Cannabidiol has no psychoactive properties, all of the psychoactive cannabinoids have been removed during the extraction process, therefore you cannot get ‘high’ on our CBD products.
The illegal/controlled aspect of the plant are two cannabinoids known as THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBN (Cannabinol). THC and CBN are what cause the “high” or psychoactive effect when Cannabis is smoked or consumed. THC and CBN are illegal/controlled substances in the UK and the EU.
CBD is 100 legal and cannot get you high!

Is there a limit to how much I can take?
As with most supplements, everyone has a unique tolerance. It’s about discovering what yours is, both in terms of how often you use it and the dosage.
We recommend introducing CBD into your life gradually, starting with 25mg twice per day.
After two or three weeks, depending on how you respond to the dosage, you can consider decreasing or increasing*, if you increase the suggested maximum daily intake is 70mg as per FSA guidelines.
What are the known benefits of CBD?
There are many reasons why people use CBD products. Our range has been created and developed to help with relaxation, provide a natural energy boost and aid in repairing the body. By using terpenes in our products, alongside CBD, we can achieve maximum targeted benefits. The achieved outcome depends on the ingredients that the CBD is fused with, specific terpene blends are why you’ll see the difference in effect. We believe CBD products must have a purpose – a generic one size fits all oil has its limitations.
CBD has many proven health benefits, there is a plethora of anecdotal evidence from many users across the globe supporting the beneficial and positive effects of CBD on the mind, body and soul. It could help to;
- relieve and reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
- reduce inflammation and aid sports recovery.
- soothe and relieve common skin complaints such as acne whilst also aiding skin repair and recovery.
- ease the symptoms of IBS and other chronic health issues.
One common misconception about the use of CBD is that one dose is enough and that it’s an instant miracle cure. To really achieve amazing benefits, you need to use the products consistently and at the correct dosage. Dosage will depend on the individual and is unique to each person. This will ensure that your endocannabinoid system remains topped up and that you see continued results.
