Beginners Guide to CBD

CBD usage in the UK is on the rise, with over 1.3 million adults now taking it every single day. If you’re interested to try CBD but not sure where to start, we’ve created a quick and simple beginners guide, to answer some of the most commonly asked-for questions.

What is CBD?

CBD is a natural extract derived from hemp (cannabis sativa), a variety of cannabis. CBD is short for Cannabidiol and is one of many cannabinoids; a naturally occurring compound found in the hemp plant. Like most plant families, different varieties of hemp are known for different things.

Does it get you high? 

CBD-rich hemp doesn’t produce the psychoactive effects commonly associated with other varieties of cannabis. This means it’s safe, legal and won’t get you high – even in high doses. THC is the compound found in cannabis which causes a high and all of our products are certified THC free.

How much should I take?

When it comes to CBD, some people have higher tolerance levels than others. It’s all about finding the right amount for you and your body. Always start with a lower dose such as 10mg twice per day and gradually build up to a dosage that suits your need.

Always remember that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends no more than 70mg a day for healthy adults.  

What are the different ways I can take it?

CBD products can be taken orally through oils and sprays, vaping products, edibles and beverages, and topically through cosmetics and healthcare products. There are many innovative products and methods available on the market and it’s just about finding the best way to enjoy CBD for you.
