FAQ's


What is cannabidiol (CBD)? What is CBD oil?
 
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of industrial hemp/cannabis. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and is being scientifically investigated for various reasons.
 
 CBD oil  is a cannabis oil that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) contained within it.
 
Our CBD oils are derived from industrial hemp, so they could be considered CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, or CBD-rich cannabis oil. The form of cannabis we use for our CBD oils is industrial hemp; we do not sell cannabis (Cannabis Indica) in any shape or form.
 
What is in CBD Oil besides cannabidiol (CBD)?
 
Our CBD oils contain over 80 different phyto-cannabinoids, most notably cannabidiol (CBD), CBC, CBG, CBN, and probably others yet to be adequately identified. In addition to the cannabinoids present in our industrial hemp oil extracts, there are also many other types of natural molecules and phyto-chemical compounds such as amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D, & E), fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, & potassium), carotene, chlorophyll, flavanoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, alcohols, glycosides, pigments, hemp seed oil, water, and terpenes. The most common terpenes in our CBD oils are Myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Linalool, alpha-Pinene, beta-Pinene, Nerolidol og Phytol, trans-alpha-Bergamotene, Limonene/beta-Phellandrene (Co-elution), alpha-Humulene, (E)-beta-Farnesene, and delta-3-Carene.
 
Why are hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD oil) products so expensive?
 
Our cannabidiol rich, hemp oil blends (CBD oils) are produced from industrial hemp.
 
A  CO2 oil extraction is performed on the stalks and seeds of mature industrial hemp plants, and the resulting hemp oil is analyzed in a laboratory through an HPLC test. The purified hemp oil is then again analyzed for it s potency and purity. And then turning this high cbd, hemp oil extract into our final cbd oil blends is another additional process that takes time and resources. These necessary steps to ensure ultimate potency and purity throughout each stage of the process, and the facilities that are required to perform all the steps, all add up to hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD Oil) products being very costly to manufacture.
 
 Is your CBD hemp oil similar to Rick Simpson Hemp Oil?
 
They are similar, as the hemp oils and potential effects are similar looking and acting. People use the Rick Simpson method with different strains of cannabis buds, so the THC and CBD content of the final oil is always varying greatly, depending on the cannabis the consumers are acquiring. Our product is always made from industrial hemp, and Rick Simpson Hemp Oil from cannabis buds.
 
How does CBD oil work?
 
Please research cannabidiol and CBD oil through other trusted resources to educate yourself as to how cannabidiol and hemp may effect the human system.
 
What is the difference between Hemp and Cannabis?
 
Scientifically and genetically, industrial Hemp and cannabis can be the same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa, while cannabis can be Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica. The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a high THC form of Cannabis sativa. Industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds.
 
Is CBD from Hemp as good as CBD from Cannabis Buds?
 
The short answer is yes. CBD is CBD, whether from Cannabis buds or hemp. Most cannabis has a very low cannabidiol profile, so most of the time hemp would be much more preferable regarding CBD potency because it naturally has such a high amount of it.
 
Is CBD Legal in the UK?
 
CBD is currently legal in the UK. Please check if it is legal in your country before ordering
 
What is the safety of cannabidiol and your Hemp CBD oil? Are there negative side effects?
 
Cannabidiol, and other phytochemical constituents of cannabis are considered to be generally safe.  In hemp s thousands of years of use there has not been one recorded fatality or major illness contributed to it s use as far as we are aware, you must always consult your health advisor before consuming any of our products.
 
Very rarely people will complain of a short lasting and mild stomach pain. This usually subsides after 2-3 days of use.
 
Is a standard hemp seed oil the same as a high CBD content CBD oil?

 
Absolutely not. Standard hemp oil, which can be found very cheaply at a grocery store, is a much different product than our Hemp CBD oil. Standard hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our CBD extract is a supercritical CO2 extraction of the hemp
