What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the most abundant cannabinoids found in the Hemp plant. Cannabinoids are compounds that can influence functioning of the human nervous system. CBD Cannabis oil (CBD Oil) is derived from EU approved, UK & US legal, industrial hemp (Cannabis Sativa L.) hemp plants.
How does CBD Work?
This is a VERY simplified explanation! The human nervous system contains a large number of receptors. One of the human receptor systems is called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). These receptors are located in the brain and the peripheral nervous system (Spinal cord and nerves). The ECS systems regulates the body’s homeostasis or general state of balance. CBD works by interacting with the ECS system. The ECS receptors are CB1 and CB2. The receptors bind cannabinoid like molecules produced by the nervous system. CBD binds to the same receptors and psychoactive THC but has an opposite effect.
Is it Legal?
This has to be our most asked question! In short – Yes it is! It is legal in the EU and US providing it contains Zero or Trace amounts of THC (The Psychoactive cannabinoid compound also found in the Hemp plant) – Our CBD oil has no detectable levels of THC!
Will I get high?
Our second most asked question! In Short – No you won’t! THC is the compound in Hemp / Cannabis that is Physcoactive (Makes you ‘high’). Our CBD has no detectable levels of THC.
