CBD 101

Learn the basics about CBD in a few minutes

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is one of the natural compounds found in hemp, also known as the cannabis sativa plant. CBD is one of over a hundred different cannabinoids found in the plant. 

How does CBD work?

CBD acts on receptors found in mammals. These receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is made of two main receptors - CBD1 and CB2 - that are found all over your body. Your ECS keeps your systems in balance with one another as you encounter daily stresses. Essentially, cannabinoids help your body to communicate more effectively with itself. Trials are being conducted to look further into the effect of CBD on the body. 

Is CBD legal?

CBD is legal to buy and use in the UK. Additionally, the World Health Organisation (WHO) classified CBD as a safe substance to use.

THC vs CBD

THC is another major cannabinoid found in hemp. Unlike CBD, THC is psychoactive and typically produces a 'high' in those who consume it. We only use CBD from hemp that has <0.2% THC content in line with the law. Once the CBD is extracted from hemp, there is no THC left but to be sure we third party test our CBD to ensure quality and purity. 

How do I use CBD?

CBD isn't an instant, one-time fix product. It is best used as a practice, which is why it's important to find a product that fits into your daily routine. We recommend you keep track of your CBD consumption and how you feel so you can see the effects over time. 

Why a Patch?

CBD can be taken in many forms. There are pros and cons to different ways of taking CBD but it really comes down to what suits you and your lifetyle. 

Some reasons we love to tkae CBD in a patch are:
- Better absorption because CBD misses the stomach
- Easy to use
- No mess, smell or taste
- Accurate and controlled dosing 
- No need to remember to top up throughout the day 
- A sustainable, zero waste product!
