Frequently asked questions
CBD is an abbreviated term short for cannabidiol, an extract from the cannabis plant. It is part of a family of at least 144 cannabinoids which are naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis. Of these cannabinoids, CBD and its more infamous cousin THC are the most common.
Although research into CBD has been limited so far, proponents of CBD and other cannabinoids claim it to be effective for a range of different applications. These include anxiety,1 2 depression and pain relief,3 as well as increased focus and anti-inflammatory effects.
Thankfully, cannabis research is now being explored to a much greater extent. The National Health Service have begun prescribing CBD-based products for those with multiple scelrosis and rare forms of epilepsy, but more needs to be done before the full spectrum of applications are made clear to the public.
Despite many claiming that CBD is non-psychoactive, this is in fact not true. CBD is psychoactive, it just does not work on the brain in the same way that THC does and, as such, you are in no danger of getting “high,” as you would with THC.
That being said, certain full spectrum CBD products do contain THC, however, they must be within legal limits that are so low as to not incur an intoxicating effect.
A CBD product is one which contains CBD in one way or another. CBD can be infused with food products such as chocolates and gummies, mixed with a carrier oil and taken as CBD drops, or even vaped as a CBD e-liquid.
CBD manufacturers are coming up with more and more innovative ways to take CBD everyday! You can check out some of the more unique types of products in our Alternative CBD Products collection.
Some products contain just the isolated cannabinoid CBD. This is why these products are known as CBD Isolates. However, many others contain a combination of other cannabinoids too. These are categorised into two groups: broad spectrum (THC-free) and full spectrum CBD.
It is thought that cannabinoids working together are greater than the sum of their parts and contribute to an enhanced experience. This is known as the entourage effect, which you can read more about in our in-depth guide.
