WHAT IS CBD?
Many customers will be coming to our website with very limited knowledge on CBD. Maybe you’ve heard of it through a friend? Or seen a post online somewhere?
There’s no question about it; CBD is getting a lot more media coverage in today’s day and age. But most people just aren’t sure about it. What is it? Is it legal? Does it actually work?
We will do everything in our power to answer any questions you may have before buying.
First of all, what is it?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It’s a naturally occurring substance that’s used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it’s not psychoactive.
So does it get me high?
Nope. Cannabis is made up of CBD and THC. CBD is the non-psychoactive part of the plant. This means no munchies, no ‘floating on air’ feeling, and no euphoria!
When you think of a cannabis “high,” you’re probably thinking of the effects of THC, the psychoactive substance that is associated with heady euphoria as well as the less-desirable effects like anxiety and memory impairment.
CBD, on the other hand, leaves consumers clear-headed while still being associated with some positive effects of the plant, such as pain relief and relaxation.
Why do people use CBD?
Well, although we cannot sit here and make medical claims to CBD; many people believe in it’s benefits for a number of reasons. Our customers come to UK CBD Liquid to try a new method of relieving pain, helping with anxiety and a whole host of other personal reasons.
Some people just feel it helps them sleep better at night.
Is it legal?
This is a concern for many first time customers, no one wants to be getting in trouble with the law!
However, CBD is completely legal in the UK. For CBD to be legal in the UK, it must contain no more than 0.2% THC, and the THC must not be easily separated from it. We ensure that all our products are thoroughly tested and each company can prove (with certification) that their CBD is under the UK legal limit.
So you can be confident and feel safe buying your CBD products from us.
