What Are Cannabinoids or CBD?
There are close to 1250 unique chemical compounds identified in hemp plants. Hundreds of them are terpenoids. Terpenoids are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their desirable aromas, flavours and other special properties. Cannabinoids are a sub-class of terpenoids.
What Is Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the primary cannabinoid in industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) In recent years there is increasing interest in the therapeutic potential of CBD, which causes no psychotropic effects, is not psychoactive (cannot get you “high”) and even in high doses does not cause relevant side-effects. Its chemical formula is C21H30O2.
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is a cannabis oil that contains significant amounts of cannabidiol. The supercritical CO2 extraction process also preserves all other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and nutrients, and contains only trace amounts of THC (below 0.2%).
Is It Legal?
CBD oil drops and products are legal and you do not require a permit or recommendation from your doctor to buy our products. Therefore they can be purchased online and shipped to your home, or collected personally in the Manchester Area.
Will I Test Positive If I Use CBD?
The THC concentrations in our oil are nowhere near enough to have any effect on you: industrial hemp plants (Cannabis sativa L.) generally contain only trace amounts of the THC that marijuana plants contain. The Cannibinoid targeted in drugs tests is THC. These tests look for the metabolic products of THC and begin with a simple urine test sample. The test uses antibodies to detect THC and the metabolite it produces. This test targets the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite and is also not sensitive to other cannabinoids including CBD.
Can You Get High Off CBD?
No, CBD is naturally non-psychoactive. You may, however, feel more relaxed, which some people also associate with being “high.”
What Is It Good For?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive component of cannabis. Studies show that Cannabidiol is possibly good for anxiety, pain relief, migraines and more. Scientists have proposed Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome (CEDS) as a spectrum disorder. As a result more people are discovering the health giving benefits of cannabidiol.
Why Do We Perform Lab Tests?
Our laboratory testing is one of the most important parts of our process. So Not only does it verify the quality, consistency and contents of our products to us. But critically, it does for you too.
We offer 100% transparency, which is why we display all our laboratory certificates for you to see on our website. If someone is selling Cannabis Oil, or any associated products and can’t provide proof of testing – alarm bells should be ringing.
