Frequently Asked Questions

CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the cannabinoid compounds that occur naturally in cannabis plant, it is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. The flowers also contain terpenes, amino acids, and various other compounds. Researchers are currently studying the effects of CBD on a wide range of conditions including chronic pain, insomnia, PTSD, anxiety, epilepsy, dementia, arthritis and more. Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities.
Cannabinoids (e.g., THC and CBD) are the chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that can affect the human body. They work by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids, that affect nerve, brain and immune cell activity. Currently, there are two known primary cannabinoid receptors: CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are located in the central nervous system, and in some peripheral tissues. They affect appetite, muscle control, pain, cognition, thermoregulation, and our stress response. CB2 receptors are primarily found in immune cells, and at a lower density in the central nervous system. CB2 activation is associated with function and immune cell proliferation, inflammation, and pain. Although these two cannabinoid receptors have been studied relatively extensively, there are more cannabinoid receptors being examined.
The answer is yes! Any CBD oil that is produced using hemp plants is 100% legal to buy and consume in the UK as long as it contains less then 0.2% THC. 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. All Platinum CBD products contain less than 0.2% THC.
Our body has a system that produces its own set of cannabinoids, called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). When CBD and other cannabinoids enter your bloodstream, they influence your ECS to either produce more or less of certain cannabinoids. In short, they communicate with your body’s endocannabinoid system to help your body maintain balance.
An effective dosage an range from as little as 5mg of CBD per day up to 150mg per day. Make sure you start low and go slow. Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose. Use the same dose for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary, adjust the amount. If you want full detail on Dosage, then see our Dosage page.
Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose. We usually say to take your oil or other CBD supplements 3 times a day, so firstly in the morning then midday then before bed. Most CBD products are only in your system around 6 hours (depending what product you use this will differ), so taking more frequently keeps the CBD in your system.
On average, however, it's estimated that CBD oil should start working within 6-8 hours. Factors like your weight, metabolism, and lifestyle choices can also have an impact and may also reduce or increase this time.
There is a lot of ongoing reaching about CBD and how it can help many people with many ongoing issues. 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 life. We strongly recommend doing your own research on CBD and how it can help you. With all that said, you do not have to be ill to use CBD products. It 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 and it’s organically grown too.
All of our hemp comes from the licensed organic farm in Colorado (USA).
No, hemp seed oil found at the local store or online is not the same as CBD hemp oil. It is important to read what you are buying carefully. CBD hemp oil is made from the flowers of the hemp plant, no seeds are used in this process. The oil must be extracted from the flower to get the oil. Hemp seed oil, on the other hand, is made by pressing the hemp plant’s seeds. The oil produced from the seeds contains some nutrients but does not contain CBD.
