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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Are Hemp Buds Legal in the UK?

Terpenes are a large class of organic compounds that are produced by plants (not just hemp!). They are incredibly fragrant and are what gives Cannabis it’s aromatic diversity. There are over 30,000 terpenes currently recorded[iii], therefore if you can find any plant that smells pleasant or a herb that tastes spicy, terpenes are likely responsible for these characteristics.

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.

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.

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.
