Many people have questions about CBD and hemp so we’ve taken the liberty to answer a few key questions below that we thought our visitors might find helpful.
CBD – FAQs
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of over 108 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, cannabis sativa, that belongs to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. CBD, along with THC, are the two cannabinoids that are present in the plant in the highest concentrations, so they are the most recognized and studied.
CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which has wide effects on the body as a whole. The endocannabinoid system is a complex system which plays a role in the regulation and balancing many of the body’s processes, including immune response, metabolism, inflammation response, memory, and more. By stimulating the endocannabinoid system CBD promotes homeostasis.
What are the benefits of CBD?
The CBD industry is flourishing, with CBD extract being added to a wide variety of products, including face creams, water, supplements, vapes, tinctures and balms, to name a few of the growing CBD products on the market. Many people are taking CBD for anxiety, pain, insomnia, depression and other health issues.
Is CBD psychoactive?
CBD does not have any psychoactive properties, and therefore CBD oil or extract is considered safe to use on a daily basis. CBD works with the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for keeping the body in homeostasis.
You can safely consume CBD products knowing that there will be no euphoric high or mind-altering effects.
Does CBD have any side effects?
Overall, CBD is well-tolerated in humans, even at high doses, and for prolonged use. As already mentioned, unlike THC, CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive effects.
The majority of people using CBD do not experience any negative side effects, as supported by many studies, though in a very small number of people there can be mild side effects when a very high dose is taken, including fatigue, changes to appetite, diarrhea and changes in the liver’s ability to process drugs.
But for the vast majority of people, CBD can be safely used without negative effects.
What is hemp?
Hemp, also known as industrial hemp, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant and is specifically grown for industrial and many other uses. It’s used in making a wide range of commercial products such as cloth, clothes, bags, skincare such as hemp pain relief creams, lip balms, supplements, rope, cleaning products such as soaps – to name just a few.
Hemp is considered beneficial for a number of health conditions including high cholesterol, inflammation, pain, eczema, psoriasis, arthritis and other ailments.
Is hemp the same as marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant (Cannabis sativa) but they are different strains of hemp with very different levels of THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) – it’s the THC that causes the ‘high.’
Hemp has a lot more CBD than marijuana and marijuana has a lot more THC than hemp. In percentage terms, industrial hemp has less than 0.3% THC. To put it simply, hemp can’t get you high. As for CBD, hemp plants contain approximately 10% to 18%.
What are hemp edibles?
Hemp edibles such as gummies contain CBD, a cannabinoid compound derived from the natural hemp plant. The other well-known cannabinoid is THC which is derived from a different strain of hemp.
CBD edibles can originate from either hemp or from marijuana. Nectar’s edibles derive from hemp, as these are the only ones that are legal in the UK.
What’s the difference between hemp seed oil and CBD oil?
Hemp seed oil and CBD oil are both made from the same cannabis plant. CBD oil is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stems, whilst hemp seed oil is derived from the seeds.
Are CBD edibles legal in the UK?
Yes, CBD edibles are legal to buy and use in the UK if the finished product contains less than 1mg of THC. THC is the cannabinoid responsible for getting you ‘high’. The level of THC in products containing hemp seed and CBD oils are extremely low – 0.3% or less, so they’re not going to get you high.
