Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of about 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis but it is one that has been found to be particularly beneficial without any side effects.
All our products are extracts from low THC varieties of cannabis known as ‘industrial hemp’.
The plants are grown legally under licence and the extract or oil containing up to 40% CBD is used as a food supplement to help improve and maintain health.
Although there is still a hangover from all the scare stories and misinformation around cannabis, science is now proving that in fact it is one of the most important plants on the planet and has a great deal of benefit to offer.
Despite the ban on cannabis, many countries have allowed certain varieties to be grown under licence for the same purposes as before. These varieties are called ‘industrial hemp’ and have been selectively bred to produce low levels of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.
In Europe, industrial hemp must contain less than 0.2% THC, in the Americas the limit is 0.3% and it still contains all the other ingredients found in any other variety of cannabis. These include: cannabidiol (CBD), other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and many other compounds which are highly nutritious and healthy.
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is not the same as hempseed oil and it is very important to understand the difference. Hempseed oil is made by pressing the seeds and is a highly nutritious but delicate oil containing a balance of omega 3 and 6 which is almost perfect for human consumption but it contains only trace amounts of cannabinoids.
It is excellent for salad dressing, baking and low temperature cooking but not for frying or cooking at high temperatures. For the same reason it is not a good oil for use as fuel or biodiesel.
As we are regulated by the appropriate industry regulatory bodies we are restricted from making medical claims…..
