In the space of just a few years, CBD has taken the world by storm as a major new wellness trend. The natural compound’s meteoric rise to mainstream culture has led to the emergence of several urban myths that need debunking.
Does CBD get you high?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is extracted from a type of cannabis called hemp, which is industrially grown. Whilst CBD is extracted from hemp, it doesn’t have the ability to produce a euphoric “high”, unlike other cannabis-derived natural compounds like THC. In fact, at CBD Oils UK, all of our CBD products are 100% THC free.
How is CBD different from hemp?
One of the big misconceptions surrounding CBD is that it exhibits similar effects to cannabis upon consumption. This couldn’t be further from the truth. CBD is just one of more than a hundred natural compounds found in the hemp plant. Each of these compounds has its own unique properties.
What makes CBD special?
CBD has become known for its therapeutic, calming properties. The potential wellbeing benefits of consuming this natural compound can vary from person to person. However, in a broad sense, CBD has been seen to support optimal body wellness, contributing to a healthy immune system.

The effectiveness of CBD is currently being evaluated in clinical trials at King’s College, London. Scientists there are looking at CBD’s potential to treat mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.
So how does CBD work?
We are primed for CBD because the human body is teeming with cannabinoid receptors.
Our body manufactures endocannabinoids in order to pass messages concerning functions such as pain, inflammation, memory, appetite and mood.
Because CBD is a cannabinoid derived from a plant it is thought to affect the body in the same way as endocannabinoids.

So how much CBD should you take? As a guide, we would always recommend starting with a low dose and building up gradually until you find your optimum dose.
Your optimal dose will depend on how well your body metabolizes the product and the concentration of CBD you are taking.
If you experience any side effects, then take a break for at least one day and then return to the previous lower dose. In this way, you will quickly work out what is best for you.
Some CBD tips:
Look for CBD products which are certified zero THC, have been third party tested under strict laboratory conditions and have a guaranteed CBD concentration.
The best CBD is organically grown EU approved low THC cannabis strain and extracted via food grade CO2. This extraction is the gold standard for producing high quality, pure extracts.
As a rule of thumb, expect to pay £50-70 per 1g of CBD in an oil form. Edibles are more expensive. Buy from a reputable brand that uses the finest hemp that has been specifically bred for higher CBD.
Store in a cool, dark place away from heat and sunlight. A CBD oil will typically have a shelf life of 12 months.
