CBD - also known as Cannabidiol is one of 113 different cannabinoid compounds that make up the cannabis plant naturally. CBD is a component of the cannabis plant that has significant therapeutic properties but does not intoxicate you - does not give you the "high" that consuming marijuana would normally give you. This is because CBD oil does not contain the other component of the cannabis plant known as THC. This is the component that makes you feel "high" and has several negative effects such as depression, nausea, and paranoia.
Yes, CBDextracts is 100% legal in the UK! Any CBD oil made from hemp is legal to buy and sell in the UK. The law states that CBD oil is legal in the UK if it has a THC content of below 0.2%. CBDextracts products have a THC content of below 0.2% therefore falls within the government guidelines.
Two common types of cannabis plants are Marijuana and Hemp. One of the main difference between the two plants is Marijuana (Cannabis Indica) intoxicates you whereas Hemp (Cannabis Sativa) does not. THC and CBD are the two main components of the cannabis plant. The oil retrieved from Marijuana plants are almost loaded with THC and is illegal to buy or sell unless for medical purposes that fall within the law. The oil retrieved from the hemp on the other hand has hardly any THC (less than 0.2%), what it lacks in THC it makes up for higher amounts of CBD. CBD has the relaxing effects and health benefits of marijuana without the disruption to your mental or physical capacity.
At CBDextracts, our CBD oil is made from the flowers of the hemp plant and NOT from the seeds as many of the oils on the market are derived from the seeds of the hemp plant and not the actual leaves, resulting in the oil being virtually ineffective. CBDextracts also uses a process where we also eliminate all the Carbon Dioxide from the oil, this ensures not only the most effective CBD oil but the safest.
It depends on what you would want to achieve as each person is unique and would experience different effects. CBD takes time to build up in your body. You may not notice an immediate effect, though over time you should begin to detect more balance, calm and peace in your life. We recommend starting off with a low concentration, and take it slowly using only a couple of drops a day. Once you witness positive changes in taking the oil, start to increase the drops and concentration over time. We recommend people to use it 1-2x per day, preferably using it in the morning, and before they go to bed until they find out whats best for them! Though we do recommend that if the symptoms for the cause they are using the oil for arises, take they they should take a drop or two the to combat this. To maximise the effects and benefits for the CBDextracts oil, we do recommend taking it consistently and regularly!
It CAN take up to 30 days for the CBD to be truly effective. The reason being, CBD builds up in your system over time, it has a half life of between 11-24 hours. Over a period of time, CBD in your system is decreasing, when you take a dose this causes a rise in CBD levels. It takes time for your body to get a significant amount of CBD in your system. This CAN be the reason why people do not see a notice till like 30 days. In MOST cases, people tend to get results within the first week of taking CBD at the right dosage!
We mention always starting off with the low concentrations until you find the right dosage for yourself. Once the right dosage has been found, you may witness very minimal side effects such as feeling drowsy and, or having a dry mouth.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a system that produces its own set of cannabinoids. Several different neurotransmitters and receptors spread throughout the body in the ECS to to regulate and balance many processes in the body. CBD does not bind to the receptors within the ECS system, it works on the enzymes that are responsible for re-uptaking the endocannabinoids after they have been used. CBD gives the body access to more of its own endocannabinoids, these endocannabinoids allow the ECS to carry out its functions with more ease. By improving the ECS, all systems of the body experience an increase in their function in overall health and wellness.
We do not recommend using CBDextracts oil, or any products containing CBD during pregnancy.
