What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a natural substance present in the hemp plants (Cannabis sativa) that are bred for nutritional purposes. The CBD is primarily extracted from hemp paste, made from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant.
What is THC?
The cannabis plant contains a range of cannabinoids – some of which are psychoactive (affect the mind) and some like CBD which do not. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a psychoactive constituent of the hemp plant. As THC can cause symptoms associated with psychosis, the levels of THC residues in CBD products are strictly controlled.

Is CBD psychoactive?
No, don’t worry! Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and any THC residues from the processing of hemp are present at a negligible level, so won’t have a psychoactive effect.
Is CBD safe to use?
Yes, we wouldn’t sell something that is likely to cause you harm. The World Health Organisation’s 2018 Critical Review Report on CBD states that CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. All of our products are below the maximum dose recommended by the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) in 2020.
CBD is not intended for use by persons under the age of 18. If someone is pregnant, breastfeeding, taking any medications or under medical supervision, they should consult a doctor or healthcare professional before use.
Is CBD addictive?
The World Health Organisation’s 2018 Critical Review Report on CBD stated that to that date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with its use.
Furthermore, individuals cannot readily recover any negligible quantity of THC residues present in quality products. This is due to its near absence in the first place and the technical difficulties that it would pose to obtain a yield which constitutes a risk to health and could therefore be misused. Any person seeking to misuse a controlled substance would be able to do so more economically and more easily by seeking out illicit substances – so we believe that there is little motivation to misuse CBD products.
