7 things you need to know before using CBD Oil

CBD is a trending topic, but what is it and what does CBD do?

CBD oil is a natural ingredient that has been used for centuries to help with sleep problems, anxiety, pain and more.

There is a lot of confusion surrounding CBD oil and whether or not this alternative medicine to the traditional pharmaceutical could work for people with chronic painful conditions.

CBD is a chemical derived from cannabis. It’s one of over 100 cannabinoids, called ‘cannabinoids’ because they were first discovered in the cannabis (Sativa) plant.

Cannabinoids have been found in both plants and animals, including humans.

There are many different types of CBD oils available on the market today, including full-spectrum CBD oils, which contain all the other cannabinoids found in hemp and CBD.

Here are 7 things you need to know before using CBD oil.

1.CBD oil is a natural supplement that contains minimal (legal 0.2% or less) THC, which means you don't get high EVER.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the essential oils found in hemp, and it has been shown to have many health benefits.

Oil made from hemp, a variety of cannabis strains grown for industrial purposes, is used in many ways. One of these applications is CBD oil.

CBD is not addictive, and it will not get you high. CBD is typically found in high percentages in hemp, while there will be minimal THC. All of our products contain less than 0.2% THC.

2.The best way to take CBD oil is sublingually (under your tongue) because it absorbs quickly into the body.

Rather than swallowing your CBD oils, let them soak under the tongue for around 90 seconds to allow for better absorption.

The effects of CBD take around 30 minutes to start, and can last for up to six hours.

3.CBD Oil is legal for sale in the United Kingdom.

We are not sure if you know this, but CBD oil is entirely legal and easily available anywhere in the UK, provided it contains less than 0.2% THC.

The UK government recently started to recognise the many benefits of CBD. Read more about CBD myths in our blog, CBD Oil - 3 Big Myths Busted. 

4.CBD oil has been shown to help with anxiety, depression, trouble sleeping and pain relief.

CBD oil is an exciting product that can help with several problems.

CBD oil has been shown to have anxiety-reducing effects, pain relief benefits, and improving sleep quality. For example, our CBD Muscle Balm soothes tired and aching muscles! 

CBD oil works in the body by activating CBD receptors which are naturally present in the human body. 

CBD can even help with acne prevention, anxiety relief, and insomnia, among many others.

CBD Oil's ability to affect all these problems at once makes it one of the most versatile treatments ever discovered.

5.CBD oil can interact with other prescription medications.

CBD has a few side effects, like grapefruit. CBD can raise the levels of other medications within the body. This can have adverse effects on the individual depending on the type of drugs they have taken.

Therefore please conduct a doctor before taking CBD with other medications.

6.The best way to know how much CBD your body needs is by starting with small doses and working up from there.

Some people start barely feeling the effects, but as their dosage increases, they can feel a difference in energy levels or pain relief.

In contrast, others need more than recommended before noticing any changes at all.

If your problem is not too severe, start on a low dosage and then increase it gradually.

The more intense the problem is, the more substance you may need, but abusing dosages should be avoided at all costs.

A rule of thumb guide is 1-3mg of CBD for every 5kg/0.8 stone of body weight.

7.Honestly, does CBD oil work?

Millions of users of CBD have nothing but positive things to say about it.

However, like most things, if you look hard enough, there are several people it doesn't work for, but it would seem these are the minority. This could, of course, call into question the quality of the product these people are using.

The most common feedback is the relaxing and calming feeling CDB gives after use (usually within 10-15 mins). 


Today, CBD oil is not just for those who have chronic pain or insomnia. It has a variety of benefits and can be used to improve your health in many ways!
