Most start with our 1000mg CBD oil taking 3 or 4 drops under the tongue and holding it there for at least 30 seconds so it can absorb into the bloodstream. It’s advised to start with just 1 drop to make sure there’s no reaction, then increase slowly by a drop every 5 days until finding the right balance. It can take up to 2 weeks until the effects are felt as CBD needs time to build up in our system.
You can also experiment with how many drops and when to take a dose. Depending on the need, it could be a morning & evening dose, with a top up during the day. If you're looking at a serious problem that's hidden from sight then you may wish to go straight for our 2000mg or 3000mg oil and take 2-3 drops a dose as a starting point.
What's the maximum dose?
There is no maximum per se but the FSA recommends to not exceed more than 70MG a day.
So far, no severe overdose effects, i.e., adverse side effects, are known. Fatigue and nausea may occur in some individuals, but this usually subsides once the body gets used to the sudden intake of CBD.
Will using CBD help with my illness?
Unfortunately, we are not able to give medical advice as our CBD products are sold as food supplements to help support and maintain a healthy body and mind and it’s always important to do your own thorough research-depending on what you are using CBD for, before trying it out.
With that said, you do not have to be ‘ill’ to use CBD. We are built to consume CBD so we believe that CBD is for everyone, no matter how healthy you may be. It provides a source of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids like Omega-3, protein and it’s organically grown too.
Regardless of your age, CBD has dozens of potential wellness benefits. Many of us realise the important of “balance” in our daily lives. Using CBD as a daily supplement is a great way to support your bodies endocannabinoid system and keep it in balance so why not use it to boost your immune system?
Full Spectrum CBD
Whole plant hemp extract containing all of the natural plant matter such as cannabinoids, terpenes and flavanoids. A much less refined oil which is darker in colour with a stronger taste. Contains less than 0.2% THC.
Broad Spectrum CBD
Very similar to full spectrum CBD but it has been through an extra level of filtration to remove THC completely. A great option for those that are concerned about drug tests.
The purest form of a single cannabinoid. Only contains CBD so it doesn't benefit from the entourage effect.
The most popular method of taking CBD. A sublingual application refers to applying the CBD oil under the tongue, holding it for a certain amount of time before swallowing.
This refers to applying CBD products directly to a part of a body - like rubbing CBD cream onto dry skin.
We're sure you've heard of brownies, the most famous edible in the cannabis space.
Edibles are food products that have been infused with CBD, like CBD gummies. Edibles that you can legally buy in the UK do not contain enough THC to produce a high.
This is a species of the cannabis plant that naturally has high levels of CBD and low levels of THC - which is exactly why most CBD producers use it.
Another species of the cannabis plant that is mostly grown for its high THC content. Primarily used by cannabis smokers recreationally as it will produce a high.
Naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis, black pepper and dark chocolate. CBD, also known as cannabidoil, is one of many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. They interact with our endocannaboid system, so we are all built to use CBD.
This is any cannabinoid that is derived from the cannabis/hemp plant.
Most common results from taking CBD are calm and focus; relief from excerise induced inflammation: promoting a healthy sleep cycle and relief from everyday stresses. So anyone that is looking for balance in these areas might benefit from taking CBD.
Studies have shown that CBD is well tolerated by many and did you know that our furry friends can use CBD too?
We aren't allowed to give out medical advice but it's important to recognise that CBD is safe and legal.
Since we value our user's safety above all else, we recommend that if you're taking other medication, you should consult your GP first.
After extended use of a full-spectrum CBD oil, you may test positive in a drug test due to the small amounts of THC that have built up in your system over time. If you are concerned about drug tests, we recommend that you use a broad spectrum CBD oil that contains 0% THC or inform your tester that you are using fully legal CBD products.
Whilst both come from the same plant (hemp), CBD oil and Hemp oil are actually different and are used for different purposes.
CBD oil is made from the flowers, leaves and stalks of the hemp plant which contain CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids. Whilst hemp oil is made from the hemp seeds which contain no CBD.
So if you are looking to buy CBD, make sure it's CBD oil and not Hemp oil.

All good things must come to an end and that's the case with CBD oil too.
Shelf life can last up to 2 years, so no rush in taking your CBD oil.
CBD is legal, because hemp is legal in the UK. When it comes to cannabis, however, it is still illegal to use it or possess it. Maybe this is why people tend to get confused. Hemp derived Cannabidiol (CBD) though, is not considered a controlled substance in the UK. It is therefore 100% legal and can be freely distributed in the UK without restrictions. If you want to use CBD products it is TOTALLY legal to do so. Although to be legal, the CBD product itself must contain less than 0.2% THC.
