What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabinoid family that naturally occurs in the cannabis plant. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.
Is CBD legal in the UK?
CBD is classified as non-intoxicating and it has indeed come to be legal in many countries, including the UK. But there are some strict guidelines connected to this legal status:
- CBD is legal in the UK if it does not contain more than trace amounts (more than 0.2%) of THC, which is a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
- CBD is legal in the UK provided it has been derived from an industrial hemp strain that is EU-approved or comes from outside the EU.
- The sale of ‘CBD Flowers’ and buds is prohibited even if THC is below 0.2% and from EU approved origin.
Can CBD get you 'high'?
No, CBD oil will not get you high or cause any psychoactive effects.
THC is the psychoactive chemical in the cannabis plant which is responsible for creating a high. Cannabis plants containing high levels of THC are illegal in the UK. The hemp plants which are harvested to create our CBD products contain only traces of THC (less than 0.2%) which will not have any psychoactive effect.
How does CBD work?
Cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids can interact with the body and the brain through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). While THC and other cannabinoids act directly on the cannabinoid receptors in the ECS, Cannabidiol has a slightly different nature. CBD does not interact directly with cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), but instead it stimulates the endocannabinoid system to produce its own cannabinoids.
