Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than hundred "phytocannabinoids", which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.
Experts aren’t completely sure how CBD interacts with the ECS. But they do know that it doesn’t bind to CB1 or CB2 receptors the way THC does. Instead, many believe it works by preventing endocannabinoids from being broken down. This allows them to have more of an effect on your body. Others believe that CBD binds to a receptor that hasn’t been discovered yet. While the details of how it works are still under debate, research suggests that CBD can help with pain, nausea, and other symptoms associated with multiple conditions.
No. Absolutely not. Unlike another major cannabinoid THC, which is popular due to its euphoria inducing effects, CBD has no psychoactive effects whatsoever.
CBD is metabolized in the human body by hydroxylation to form its acidic metabolites. This process is carried out with the help of hepatic P450 enzymes that form covalent bonds with CBD. This interaction between P450 enzymes and CBD conflicts with the formation of P450-anandamide complex and may induce pharmacokinetic blockade of psychotropic drugs.

Please be aware that all of our products do contain a trace of THC that is less than 0.2% - within the legal level, and therefore could give a false positive on a road side or employer drug test. Upon a urine or blood test it should be apparent that there are high levels of CBD not THC however this would depend on the quality of the testing equipment being used and therefore if you feel this could in anyway affect your ability to pass a drug test or jeopardise your employment you should either discuss the matter with your employer or not take the products
There are three main ways of consumption: ingesting, inhalation and application. Ingestion consists of 2 ways: digestion - (edibles, beverages, capsules) and sublingual (tinctures and sprays). Inhalation - vaporizing, and application - transdermal patches and topicals (balms, sprays).
CBD oil is in no way addictive. Only THC, which is almost absent in CBD oil, has psychoactive potential, which the body will build up a tolerance for with time. There is no sense of withdrawal when the oil is discontinued. CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive potential, however, it does influence several biochemical processes through which it can deliver its calming and soothing effects on mental well-being.
Some people sleep well on CBD, others don’t. It usually depends on the reason why sleeping is difficult. CBD can help relax the body and mind, and take away aches and pains so that sleeping becomes easier. On the other hand, some people notice an uplifting effect, giving energy which could make falling asleep a bit more difficult. Usually, once fallen asleep, the rest of the night is calm. Should you notice that falling asleep proves more difficult, then take your last drops of the day some 2-3 hours before sleeping. The energizing effect should pass, after which the calming effects should come through, aiding sleep
