CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive component found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC it will NOT get you high and is not addictive. CBD is legal in the UK and CBD has been declared safe by the World Health Organisation.
When talking about the differences between CBD and THC, it’s perhaps best to start with a quick discussion of marijuana vs. hemp. The hemp plant  is a cannabis plant with less than 0.3% THC. Marijuana, on the other hand, is a cannabis plant that can have upwards of 30% THC.
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a cannabinoid, like CBD. But unlike CBD, THC is a psychoactive compound that can produce intoxicating effects when consumed. CBD does no such thing. Instead, CBD promotes calming wellness by way of its interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system. CBD does not get you “high.”
No. CBD doesn’t interact with the parts of your brain that cause euphoria, or disorientation. The part of the cannabis plant that can have those effects, known as THC, is not present in any Feel Free product.
To understand CBD oil, first we have to talk about the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is our body's master regulatory system that regulates things like appetite, pain management, digestion, reproduction, stress and memory, addiction, and depression. In order for your ECS to work effectively, it needs a steady supply of compounds called cannabinoids. Some cannabinoids are made by your body (called endocannabinoids). Others are made by plants (called phytocannabinoids). One of the most well-known phytocannabinoids is CBD, which stands for cannabidiol.
CBD oil is brilliant for supporting your body to regulate itself and maintain a healthy balance.
It helps the body effectively process stress and anxiety, in turn rebalancing hormone levels and improving sleep patterns. As a result, leaving you feeling more calm, focused and productive, especially when taken as part of a daily routine
The perfect amount will be different for everyone, but don’t worry, you can’t overdose on CBD. Depending on how efficiently your body maintains its internal balance, the same amount of CBD might affect you differently compared to the next person. Any excess CBD that you don't need, your body will flush out naturally.
CBD is best taken consistently as part of a daily routine, like a vitamin, so that it is always available in your system. Our studies found that you need to be taking over 40mg of CBD daily for 3-4 days for the full benefits to kick in. We suggest an optimum daily intake of 40-60mg. Guidance from the UK’s Food Standard Agency recommends a maximum daily intake of 70mg in food or drinks.
Everyone responds to CBD differently. If you don’t notice any benefits, it might be that your body’s internal systems are already running at their best. If your endocannabinoid system and other internal regulatory systems are functioning correctly—which means that your body is able to respond quickly and correctly to stresses and other imbalances—then CBD will not change that. Neither will it have any negative effects in those circumstances.
Another reason for limited benefits may be that the amount of CBD you’re using is too low or too infrequent to build up a supportive effect in your body. If you’re only taking 5 or 10mg per day, your body might simply be removing it before it has a chance to help you. It's not removing it, it's not at an effective dose to have an impact.
CBD comes from the cannabis plant, but it is one of 104 chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids. It’s a naturally occurring substance, which can be extracted and mixed with a carrier oil – often hemp seed or coconut – to create CBD oil. Unlike the most well-known cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC), CBD is not psychoactive, meaning that it won’t make you 'high' – the sensation most commonly associated with cannabis. It is, however, reported to offer a range of health and medicinal benefits – the reason behind its growing acclaim.
Be consistent. Using CBD daily is the best way to see results. Know what to look for before you start. Paying attention to your body today will help you gauge where you’ll stand tomorrow. It could help to take it as you’re winding down each day, just so you’re able to observe how your body is responding. Changes can be small and difficult to notice, especially at first — taking notes can help you identify a difference over time.
CBD oil is a liquid cannabis extract that contains virtually pure CBD. It’s commonly made from seeds of the hemp plant (CBD hemp oil) and the stem of industrial hemp.
CBD oil has the potential to benefit people’s health in multiple ways. Research suggests that CBD can help with things like encouraging sleep, promoting inflammatory relief, supporting relief from oxidative stress, maintaining heart health and to help with an overall balanced lifestyle. So, why do people take CBD? Because of its lack of psychoactive effects, along with a lower risk of side effects than plenty of other medications like opioids.
Ultimately, to improve their daily wellness needs!
Some people may take it to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Others may take it to support their daily needs like for a good night's sleep, relaxation, or to reduce anxiety and depression. Other people may take it to attempt to support their medical symptoms.
