CBD is short for Cannabidiol.
Although CBD is a component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant. You could call it marijuanas cousin.
Basically, CBD and THC are the 2 main cannabinoids found in the cannabis family. The hemp plant is high in CBD and low in THC. Marijuana is high in THC and low in CBD.
CBD is legal in the UK. THC is not completely legal unless the volume of it is less than 0.2% within any product. All of our products at CBD Naturae are completely legal and adhere to UK legislation.
Here are a few Q&A’s for some of the most common questions about CBD;
What is hemp oil?
Hemp oil is a carrier oil in the same way as MCT or olive oil is used to allow CBD to be measured and ingested by the customer. Some people say hemp oil also contains additional cannabinoids that support the effects of CBD, but most people do not like the bitter taste. The most popular carrier oil is MCT which is short for medium-chain triglyceride. Triglycerides are fats and due to their shorter length than those found in other oils they are more easily absorbed and digested by the body.
Does CBD get you high?
THC is the psychoactive part of the plant and in levels of less than 0.2% it has no psychoactive effect on the human body. CBD does not get you high.
