What Is the Correct Dose of CBD?

If you are just starting taking CBD, we recommended that you start with a low dose of around 10-15mg, taken in two doses, evenly spaced throughout the day.  Once you get more familiar with CBD (and the effect that it has on your wellbeing) you can increase the dose slowly, perhaps every 5-7 days, until you reach a point where you feel that you are getting the full benefit of the product.

An Introductory Guide to CBD Oil in the UK

We have worked hard to make our CBD guide as comprehensive as possible, and cover a broad range of topics about CBD, from the extraction process (from industrial hemp) to the differences between full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate products, and from recommended dosage to the effect that CBD products have on the endocannabinoid system (ECS)… and more!

Full Spectrum CBD Oil vs. Refined Broad Spectrum CBD – What’s the difference?

Hempura’s refined extracts are manufactured from the same base extract as our Full-Spectrum Original, except the extract has been winterised and further purified after initial extraction. These filtration and refinement techniques allow unnecessary compounds to be removed (like the original hemp constituents), leaving a highly activated golden oil containing a refined cannabinoid and terpene extract.

Is CBD Oil Safe?

Is CBD oil safe? It isn’t addictive or habit-forming like recreational marijuana. It also doesn’t get you high in the same way that other cannabis products do. It, therefore, doesn’t pose a risk like a drug might. However, the long term effects of CBD oil on the body haven’t been fully explored by scientists yet.

When Does CBD Oil Expire?

CBD oil has a long shelf life of between one and two years. It’s a natural product, which means it will always go bad eventually. It can either spoil (go bad because of bacteria) or go stale (because of air and/or sunlight). Stale CBD can still be taken but may not have all the beneficial effects of fresh oil. Spoiled oil must be replaced.

Will CBD Oil Be Banned?

Will CBD oil be banned? It won’t, because it’s a product made from hemp. Hemp has never been illegal to grow, provided you have a license, as it can’t be used recreationally. Hemp products are freely available whether as a CBD supplement, a pad of paper, or clothing. These products are becoming more popular because they’re eco-friendly. It’s therefore unthinkable that CBD oil will ever be made illegal.

What to Do When CBD Oil Stops Working

What should you do when CBD oil stops working? Your best bet is the uptitration method. This is where you continue to take more each day until you feel that taking more offers no added benefit. The uptitration method relies on you: it’s all about how you feel when you take a supplement.

How To Take CBD Oil

Like any supplement, it’s a good idea to take CBD oil either once or twice a day. Once a day, preferably in the morning, is a basic dose. There’s nothing wrong with just once a day, but in taking two doses (once in the morning and once in the evening) you ensure that you maintain roughly the same level of CBD in your body throughout each 24 hour period.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD is a contraction of the word cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound found in all plants in the cannabis family. However, the CBD oil you can buy online or in-store is always made from industrial hemp—not ‘marijuana’. It can therefore scientifically be called hemp oil.

Why Is CBD Oil So Popular All of a Sudden?

The market for supplements has always been big. Cod liver oil, multivitamins, and more recent trends like turmeric tablets have all been very popular. CBD oil is just one of many supplements that have seemed to explode in popularity suddenly. What you may have missed is that CBD was popular with a smaller audience before it gained a national platform.

What CBD Stands For… What Is Cannabidiol?

The three letters ‘CBD’ don’t stand for three words. Instead, they’re a contraction of the longer word cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of more than a hundred cannabinoids found in all species of cannabis plants, to a greater or lesser extent. It is the active ingredient in CBD oil, and is sold as a food supplement in the UK and worldwide. The contraction CBD is used because it’s easier to remember.

What Happens When You Take CBD from Hemp?

Endocannabinoids are molecules produced naturally by the body to support the endocannabinoid system, and these molecules have a number of striking similarities with cannabinoids – the chemicals found in Cannabis Sativa. In total, there are more than a hundred cannabinoids that can be extracted from different strains of the cannabis plant, each of which has different benefits for overall balance and wellbeing.

What CBD Oil Has The Most THC?

The kind of CBD oil with the most THC is full spectrum oil. ‘Full spectrum’ means that it contains every cannabinoid that is naturally found in industrial hemp, THC included. It can legally contain 0.2% THC by volume. Broad spectrum oil is full spectrum oil that is treated to remove THC and several other compounds from the mixture. Both kinds of oil are legal.

Is CBD Hemp Oil Legal in the UK?

While CBD hemp oil products are the most popular way to enjoy the benefits that CBD has to offer, it is not the only product that contains CBD that can be legally sold. You can buy CBD UK wide in multiple forms. This includes the purchase of CBD chocolates, CBD vape liquid and even hemp CBD capsules. All these products are available for purchase and are 100% legal, just like CBD oil.

What CBD Oil is best for me?

Generally speaking, the purest and highest concentration of CBD oil is the best. If CBD oil has scientifically provable effects, then those effects would be clearer after taking a more concentrated oil. Hempura offers a range of oils at different concentrations of CBD per drop. It's worth noting that we recommend controlling CBD amount rather than bottle strength, though. As dosages get higher, it is easier and better value to opt for the high concentration bottles.

What is the difference between Hemp and Cannabis

The simplest way to define the difference between cannabis and hemp is that hemp is used to denote the non-psychoactive variety of the Cannabis Sativa plant. While cannabis or marijuana is used to denote the psychoactive variety of the same.

NEWS FSA Announces CBD Novel Food Deadline for UK Businesses

On the 13 February 2020, the FSA publicly announced guidelines surrounding cannabidiol (CBD) for the CBD industry. These guidelines contained a deadline of 31 March 2021 for CBD companies to submit a valid Novel Foods application to receive authorisation to be sold in the EU/UK market or risk enforcement.

What CBD Oil is Legal in the UK?

Good news: CBD oil is legal in the UK. The active compound, CBD, is not a restricted substance in the UK, unlike THC or CBN. You can consume as much (or as little) as you like, and it’s not against the law to either possess or sell it. That’s because CBD (cannabidiol) won’t get you ‘high’, or affect your body in any similar way. It’s THC which is regulated.
12/06/2019

How is CBD Made?

The issue is that CBD is a chemical. To make CBD oil, you have to strip away everything you don’t need from the hemp. This means the fibre, plant cells and other unnecessary chemicals. Even in the oils where these things are left in (full spectrum CBD oils), you still need to process the hemp until you’re mostly left with just the CBD.
20/09/2019

Are There Any Side Effects of CBD?

CBD oil can have unexpected effects if it contains too much THC or not enough CBD. This is possible if the oil is from a poor quality manufacturer. CBD may also have side effects including nausea, fatigue and irritability. However, this has not been fully scientifically tested. Only anecdotal reports are available.

CBD: Is It Addictive?

CBD supplements are not addictive. A full-spectrum oil contains all the compounds you find in marijuana. However, CBD oil is made from hemp, which isn’t the kind of cannabis that people smoke. Hemp contains low levels of THC, the psychoactive chemical abundant in recreational marijuana strains. It therefore can’t get you high, and isn’t addictive.

Are CBD Capsules as Effective as Drops?

Ingested oil takes longer to go through the digestive system. This means it takes longer to feel the effects of CBD when swallowed as a capsule. It’s also unclear whether CBD is broken down when in the stomach or gut, which would make it less effective.
05/08/2019

Why CBD Under Tongue?

Why should you take CBD oil under the tongue? The mucous membrane and gums absorb the active compounds in the oil quickly, because the layer of tissue is thin. It enters the bloodstream directly through capillaries visible under the thin membrane. CBD absorption under the tongue also prevents the oil breaking down in stomach acid.

PayPal vs UK CBD Products: What’s Going On?

However, PayPal policies mean that when you buy CBD products in the UK, it is not possible to use PayPal as a platform. PayPal, due to American law, class all CBD cannabidiol products as a narcotic, which means that the platform does not accept the transactions of any hemp-derived products.

CBD Uncovered: Getting to Know the Endocannabinoid System

The body can interact with cannabinoids and create its own, with the presence of these receptors identified in many animals around the world. Due to its widespread presence, it’s thought that it’s possible to be deficient in cannabinoids which could, in turn, affect the endocannabinoid system.

CBD Extraction Methods: Which is Best?

How is CBD extracted? The hemp is put through a high-pressure extraction process using industrial machinery. It is dissolved in a solvent. There are several different solvents used, the most common being carbon dioxide and ethanol (pure alcohol). Both kinds of solvent have their advantages, although ethanol is more widely used.

How CBD and THC Work Together

The exact ways that CBD and THC interact are unclear. Until recently, cannabis and cannabis products aside from hemp were illegal throughout almost all first world countries. It’s only in the past few years that medicinal and recreational cannabis have been legalised in certain places.
20/09/2019

Can CBD Oil Turn Into THC?

Can CBD oil turn into THC? It can, but only in very select circumstances. It doesn’t change into THC on its own, e.g. by going stale or going bad. There’s no danger of this occurring. CBD also doesn’t turn into THC when ingested (at least not in any more than trace amounts). However, CBD is chemically similar to THC. This means it can be transformed into the illegal compound in a laboratory setting. 
08/07/2019

Can You Get CBD Oil With THC?

CBD oil that contains THC is known as full spectrum CBD oil. It is the end product of the solvent extraction process when applied to hemp. Nothing is added to, or taken from the oil before it’s sold as full-spectrum oil.
