We aim to provide not only great products but also clear and succinct information which allows you to make informed decisions when it comes to using CBD products.
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. It is a non-psychoactive compound which accounts for up to 40% of the plant.
The most commonly known compound of the cannabis plant is the Tetrahydrocannabinol(THC) which is psychoactive which gives the euphoric ‘high’ and a mind-altering experience when consumed with the application of heat which breakdown the THC and allow for the release of the psychoactive. CBD and THC have different properties therefore different effects when consumed. CBD has no psychoactive compounds hence it cannot alter a person’s state of mind. However it does produce significant changes to the body which improve lifestyles and management of medical conditions.
How does it work?
- CBD causes subtle changes in the body by attaching itself to receptors produced by the body. Cannabidiol naturally attaches itself to two receptors. The receptors are categorised as CB1 and CB2.
- CB1 receptors are found throughout the body but are dominant in the brain.
- CB1 receptors deal with a myriad of things including but not limited to pain, co-ordination & movement, mood and emotions, appetite and many other functions.
What Does CBD do
CB2 receptors are dominant in the immune system. They deal directly with pain and inflammation.
Various medical research and market research has proven how beneficial CBD can be to leading a healthy and good life. In the UK, Cannabidiol products have been approved for use under the classification of Hemp products. Solely used for enhancement of lifestyle and pain management. Generally, under the Directive of Directive 2002/46/EC CBD products are classified as Food Supplements.

A closer look at what CBD is
What is CBD? Cannabidiol, popularly known as CBD has grown in popularity since the discovery of its medical benefits. People have learned to adopt the use of CBD for the treatment of a variety of symptoms, despite the numerous controversy surrounding its use. However, despite the outstanding popularity of CBD oil, there is still a lot of confusion regarding CBD oil benefits, CBD oil side effects, CBD oil uses, and issues surrounding the legality of its use. In this article, we will try to give a detailed explanation of what CBD is, the best ways to use it, its possible health benefits, potential side effects and issues surrounding its legality in the United Kingdom.
What is CBD oil ?
CBD oil is a naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent found in the cannabis plant. Its discovery is dated as far back as 1940, although it was initially thought not to be pharmaceutically active. It accounts for a large percentage of the plant’s extract (generally up to 40%). It is extracted from the plant, through the use of powerful but non-inflammable and non-toxic components such as carbon dioxide. There’s a vast difference between the regular CBD and a THC. Is CBD marijuana? Since the discovery of CBD oil, it has been found to have many health benefits, but before its discovery, THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) was the best-known compound of cannabis. The THC is the most active ingredient in marijuana. CBD and THC each have their different effects when consumed. THC is psychoactive; hence, it creates a mind-altering “high” when cooked or smoked. The application of heat before consumption causes the THC to break down. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive; hence its usage cannot change a person state of mind. However, it produces some significant changes and researches have shown it to have some medical benefits.
How does CBD work in the body ?
The CBD causes changes in the body, and it does so by attaching itself to specific receptors produced by the body. The human body naturally produces two receptors for cannabinoids. The receptors are known as CB1 and CB2. The CB1 receptors are dominant in the brain, although they are still present in every part of the body. They deal with pain, coordination and movement, mood, appetite, emotions, memories, and other functions. CB2 receptors are dominant in the immune system. They deal directly with pain and inflammation. CBD oil benefits Various researches have proven that CBD oil is highly beneficial to health.
