WHAT IS CBD & WHY USE IT?

CBD is a compound called a cannabinoid which is extracted from hemp plants.

As humans, we have an endocannabinoid system (ECS).  This is perhaps one of the most important physiological systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health.  It is a huge network which produces our own CBD (endocannabinoid) and comprises of receptors which are found in virtually all of the tissues in our body's.  The role of the ECS is to brin balance to our tissue including the heart, digestive, endocrine, immune, nervouse and reporoductive systems.  In short, it's working to keep you in neutral.  Neutral means different things in different areas of the body which is possibly one of the best things about CBD, it can have a differnent impact on different receptors at the same time.

When someone takes a CBD supplement, the compound goes into the ECS and not only gives it a boost but also encourages the body to use more of it's own CBD, therefore helping to regulate the body's functions.  While evidence of clinical efficacy is still limited, it has been reported that CBD suppliments may help to relieve symptoms related to sleep, immune-system responses, pain/inflammation and anxiety/depression, to name but a few.

CBD comes in three forms:

Full Spectrum CBD: Full Spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all of the naturally occuring compounds from the plant, rather than just CBD. These include cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils and trace amounts of THC (under 0.3% and therefore will not induce any "high").  Each compound from the plant works together to magnify the therapeutic benefits of each other (referred to as the "entourage effect").  

Broad Spectrum CBD: Broad Spectrum CBD products are exactly the same as Full Spectrum CBD products, other than being 100% THC free.  Because the extract still contains all of the compounds of the plant, you can still benefit from the "entourage effect", with 0 risk of any psychoactive effects or THC being present in the blood.

CBD Isolate: CBD Isolate is the "purest"  form of CBD as just this single compound has extracted from the plant. This also means that it is the most "processed" form of CBD and users will not benefit from the "entourage" effect. It is THC free, and does not contain any other cannabinoids or compounds from the plant. CBD Isolate is tasteless and odorless and is therefore perfect for use in CBD vape products.  

WHAT DO WE OFFER?

We offer a variety of CBD products to suit every need and these include oral tincutres, vape liquid and cosmetics.  The two brands we stock are LVWell CBD (who have won several awards, including Best Extract at the CBD Expo) and Otium CBD, who are a sector leading and trusted UK vape manufacturer.  

It is worth mentioning that CBD oil taken orally under the tongue has a slower absorption rate but the effects last longer.  CBD vaped has a much quicker absorption rate and however the effects do not last as long.  

If you are new to using CBD, whether oral or vape, it is advisable to start at the lowest dose and gradually increase until desired effects are achieved.

Please note - Always consult your doctor before using any supplement. Do not exceed the maximum dosage and always read the label on the produt. CBD products are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease.
