Our Sprays

Handy sprays to bring with you when you're on the go.

Sprays

You have probably heard of CBD or medical marijuana from the increased amount of media coverage that it has seen over recent months.

CBD is one of the compounds which are found naturally in the cannabis and hemp plant. It stands for cannabidiol, and cannabis oil is made from this extract.

We all have an endocannabinoid system which interacts with cannabinoids in our bodies. It is the endocannabinoid system which is responsible for certain functions – such as regulating inflammation and pain, as well as having some cognitive functions. By stimulating the body's CB2 receptors (found mainly in the immune tissues), it can also help to improve your well-being.

CBD Oil vape

As the world is turned on to the damage that smoking causes, we are seeing more and more people vaping. E-cigarettes are becoming increasingly popular and now vaping is an easy way to get the benefits of cannabidiol as well.

CBD Vape oil is the same as normal vape oil, but it is enriched with cannabinoids. Its ingredients, therefore are simply, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, terpenes and cannabis oil. It can be used in exactly the same way as vaping, with the same vaping pen, making it easy and convenient. You can get it in a range of strengths and flavours to make it perfect for you.

Due to the fact that the vapour goes straight into your lungs and doesn't need to pass through your digestive system, vaping is the quickest way to get CBD into your bloodstream and to your endocannabinoid system, giving you more control and getting the quickest results.

Our CBD eliquids are a great option for vapers. These little bottles of 50% propylene glycol and 50% Vegetable Glycerin, We've found this is the best mix with exactly the right strength.

Our Capsules

Capsules are great if you enjoy taking supplements in capsule form.

CBD Oil capsules

For many people capsules are convenient and effective. You simply swallow the capsule and let it work its magic. Our capsules contain cannabidiol – a natural compound which is found in the cannabis plant, which will enhance your well-being, but won't make you 'high'.

By swallowing a capsule the CBD will be absorbed through digestive system and get into your endocannabinoid system. However, if you prefer, we have sprays that can be sprayed under your tongue.

All of our products are legal in the UK as they all have a THC level of under 0.2%. However, it is important to know the law wherever you are on holiday to ensure that you don't get into trouble by possessing your CBD capsules abroad.

Looking to know more about CBD oil?

Then you’re in the right place.

In this article, we will are going to teach everything you need to know about this amazing oil.

With the massive growth of cannabis oil industry, CBD oil or cannabidiol oil is becoming very popular. There is a huge demand for CBD oil and rightly so, this cannabis-based oil is packed with many health benefits.

About CBD Oil

Cannabidiol oil or commonly known as CBD oil is a hemp oil derived from hemp plant which is known for containing a high concentration of cannabidiol. CBD oil has gained popularity in recently because of the ongoing wave of publicity and its possible health benefits that are being trialed by local Governments.

The cannabis plant consists of total 85 known compounds of which Cannabidiol and THC are most commonly known. All the compounds found in cannabis plant are generally termed as cannabinoids and cannabidiol is the second most abundantly found compound in the cannabis plant after THC.

How Can You Use CBD Oil?

There are many incredible CBD oil products, some of the products you can choose from are Pure CBD Oils, CBD Capsules, CBD liquids, CBD Balms and CBD Sprays. You can choose products as per your own convenience and applications.

How Is CBD Oil Extracted?

It is easy to extract CBD from a plant such as hemp or cannabis that has a high concentration of CBD in it. The commonly used methods require simple equipment and some types of solvent. Such a solvent can be a liquid solvent such as CO2 or an oil solvent. If you are beginning with a plant that contains THC as well, then the extraction process can be complex and you have to use professional equipment to separate the two cannabinoids.

Three Methods to Extract CBD Oil from hemp Plant or Marijuana

The following three methods commonly used for extracting CBD oil from hemp plant or marijuana:

1. Liquid Solvents: In this method, a liquid solvent such as hexane, ethanol, butane or isopropyl alcohol is put to use. The method involves using running the liquid solvent through the plant to strip it off the cannabinoids and flavours which are transferred to the liquid. The evaporation process is used for removing liquid and the process leaves you with concentrated chemicals and flavours in the form of oil. This method is the easiest means to extract CBD as it involves the use of simple instruments and is rather inexpensive.

2. CO2 Extraction: Performed with the help of ‘closed loop extractor’ equipment under strictly maintained variables such as temperature and pressure, CO2 extraction method is considered much better than using a liquid solvent as the end product obtained is pure and involves minimal risk of contaminants. Since this is performed in a strictly controlled temperature and pressure, the method can also be used for extracting CBD oil from THC. This process is generally used by professional CBD producers.

3. Oil Extraction: Oil extraction method has been used for extracting cannabinoids from hemp plant and cannabis plant for a very long time. The mainly used oil in the process is olive oil. This simple extraction method is used by many home producers. The process involves decarboxylation of the raw plant and heating of the plant to a specific temperature which activates chemicals in the plant. Since olive oil cannot be evaporated therefore the process is not viable for commercial CBD oil producers.

What Effect Does CBD Oil Have on Your Body?

Like other cannabinoids, CBD interacts with your body via your body’s endocannabinoid system which acts as a bridge between different receptors running from the brain to different parts of your body for the transportation of signals. Endocannabinoids are present in all mammalian species that helps in maintaining the health of the body by activating receptors that lead to conditions such as appetite, memory, mood, pain, emotions, immune response, temperature etc.

The amount of CBD used can have an effect on your receptors which may alter your bodily functions such as breathing, memorising, sleeping, feeling of pain, etc.

Cannabinoids such as CBD that is derived from plants and is commonly found in marijuana and hemp can replicate many biological actions performed by endocannabinoids that are synthesized by the human body. Much like endocannabinoids, CBD oil affects cannabinoid receptors to keep your body and its function in a state of equilibrium or homeostasis.

Our endocannabinoids system consists of two main receptors that are found in the brain, immune system, and central nervous system. These two receptors are Cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and Cannabinoid 2 (CB2). While CB1 is found in the brain and central nervous system, CB2 is found in the immune system and spleen. Each cannabinoid receptor acts differently under the influence of different cannabinoids. Studies in relation to CBD and its properties affecting medical conditions such as anxiety, inflammation, depression, ADHD, diabetes, cancer, muscle and joint pain, insomnia, Parkinson’s disease, chronic pain and other pediatric cases are on going.

How Is CBD Different from THC?

Tetrahydrocannabinol and Cannabidiol are two of the majorly found cannabinoids in Cannabis Sativa, a marijuana plant. Both of these cannabinoids have different effects on different cannabinoids receptors of the body. For understanding the underlying difference between CBD and THC, you need to first understand the structure of THC.

The CBD fact sheet

What is THC?

The feeling of ‘high’ that you get after consuming marijuana is due to THC. It is the main psychoactive component of Cannabis Sativa. The compound shows its psychoactive effects by exhibiting the effects of anandamide. It is a type of neurotransmitter that is naturally produced by the human body and helps in regulating bodily functions such as sleeping and eating. Some of the effects of THC on the human body are relaxation, reduced aggression, improved hunger, fatigue and altered senses of smell, sight, and hearing.

CBD Vs THC – Differences

Both THC and CBD have different therapeutic effects on human body. The major differences between the two are:

1. THC is Psychoactive Whereas CBD is not:

Often people confuse CBD with THC in the terms of latter’s psychoactive effects on human body. The truth is that THC is a psychoactive compound and is responsible for the feeling of lightness and euphoria that you feel after consuming marijuana. CBD, on the other hand, is a non-psychoactive substance which can lead you to the effects of ‘high’. In fact, CBD is known to suppress the psychoactive effects of THC.

2. THC is the major compound in Marijuana while CBD is majorly found in Hemp:

Hemp and Marijuana are two different species of cannabis plant. THC and CBD are found in both hemp plant and marijuana but in different concentrations. THC is found in abundance in marijuana. This is the reason why it is cultivated. Hemp, on the other hand, has a higher concentration of CBD while the concentration of THC in hemp is minimal (as low as 0.3%).

3. CBD Is Legal Under UK Law While THC Is Not:

In the United Kingdom, THC is prohibited under the Controlled Substances Act and is considered as a controlled substance, therefore, it is prohibited. However, CBD is not listed under the Controlled Substances Act since it is not derived from Marijuana and is not considered as illegal. You need to understand that THC extracted from Marijuana is illegal whereas CBD oil that is extracted from Hemp plant is considered legal under federal laws. You can legally access hemp derived CBD in the United Kingdom.

4. THC Activates Cannabinoid Receptors While CBD Does Not:

As we have already told you, Cannabinoids including CBD and THC interact with endocannabinoid system through CB1 and CB2 receptors. THC activates cannabinoid receptors whereas CBD acts as an antagonist of CB1 and CB2 receptors and blocks them. This also leads to suppressed effects of THC on receptors. Usage of both in a balanced manner can effectively increase the functionality of the endocannabinoid system and could help promoting a better wellbeing.

Are There Any Side Effects Using CBD Oil?

According to many experiments conducted by scientists, it is found that human body does not exhibit any side effect even after consuming CBD oil in different quantities. No effects were found on central nervous system or mood of human beings who consumed it in heavy and light dosage. It is recommended that individuals should use CBD oil after proper consultation with a professional medical practitioner. As per the United Kingdoms Food and Drug Administration department, CBD is not allowed to be sold for treating any medical condition.

Final Thoughts:

Cannabidiol or CBD is an active compound of hemp which is popular amongst people for health benefits. Understanding the effect of CBD on the human body is important before consuming it for any specific condition. No major side effects have been found to date related to the consumption of CBD. We hope that through this article, your doubts about CBD oil, its synthesis and its effects on the human body would have been cleared. We also described how CBD is different from THC which is another cannabinoid obtained from the plant of Marijuana.
