What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabidiol aka CBD is one of the 114 compounds found in the Cannabis plant.
Cannabis is commonly known as a drug that when smoked or ingested is used to get you “high” or “stoned” but the cannabis plant is actually made up of 114 different compounds and only one of them is illegal.
The compound in the cannabis plant that achieves the “Stoned” or “high” effect is Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. THC is a psychoactive substance and is controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and is illegal in the UK.
The compound that we use in our products is Cannabidiol (CBD) is completely separate from THC and 100% LEGAL in the UK. CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant using a process called the CO2 extraction method which creates a thick and very potent paste. This paste is then mixed with a carrier oil (most companies use hemp seed oil) but we use a full spectrum carrier oil that is created through an infusion method. Once mixed, the oil and paste then combine to make a thick, dark rich oil that has all the terpenes and flavours of a traditional CBD oil but with all the added benefits of a CO2 extraction. We then add a bit of honey to our oil to give it that distinctive sweet flavour that makes our oil easy to take
Once extracted from the Cannabis plant and absorbed into the body, the CBD acts as a key that opens the endocannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system. When these locks are opened, the endocannabinoid system and gives a boost to your health and wellbeing.
