Glossary of CBD terms
A CBD product that contains more than one cannabinoid – but doesn’t contain all of them – can be classed as broad-spectrum.
A broad term used for a group of hemp plants, which are used to make fibers, food supplements and recreational drugs.
Some cannabis plants have high levels of THC, which are usually used for recreational drugs. You may have heard these referred to as marijuana, skunk, weed, pot, etc.
Others are very low in THC, can are used to make fibers, clothes, CBD products and more.
While CBD oil is legal and widely available in the UK, cannabis oil is currently illegal in the UK.
It’s usually made from cannabis plants high in THC, rather than the ones low in THC that are used for CBD products.
All people and animals have this biological system.
It helps to keep us ‘in balance’ by regulating sleep, appetite, pain, mood, memory and inflammation.
Hemp is a cannabis plant strain that’s grown specifically low in THC and high in CBD.
Psychoactive is a term for something acting on the central nervous to alter brain function.
THC is the most well-known cannabinoid from the cannabis plant.
Firstly, what are CBD tablets?
CBD tablets / capsules are simply an easy-to-take alternative to your regular CBD oil. They contain the same extracted CBD (cannabidiol) from hemp plant flowers and leaves as CBD oil does.
You can choose from small doses (5mg per serving) to large doses (50mg) per serving, depending on how strong you would like it. However, we always recommend starting with a smaller dose you can build on over time.
People usually go for CBD tablets and other alternative supplements over CBD oil because they don’t like the taste of it or enjoy the convenience of them, e.g. taking them at work, after the gym and travelling.
- CBD tablets are a convenient way to take CBD
- They contain the same CBD extracted from cannabis / hemp plants
Is CBD legal?
Yes, CBD is legal in the UK.
It is often confused with the marijuana that some people smoke, as they are both obtained from hemp plant. But marijuana is illegal, and CBD isn’t.
This is because CBD products contain very little of the psychoactive THC compound found in marijuana – the one’s that give people the associated feeling of intoxication.
Hemp cultivated for CBD oil and other products has been bred to be high in CBD and low in THC. As the THC is only present in trace amounts (or even non-existent in some products), it allows you to enjoy all the benefits of CBD without the side effects of THC.
- CBD is legal in the UK
- Products must pass safety tests and contain acceptable traces of / no THC
Is CBD safe to use?
Yes! Here at H&B, we wouldn’t sell something that is likely to cause you harm. The World Health Organisation’s 2018 Critical Review Report on CBD reports that CBD is generally well tolerated and has a good safety profile
All of our CBD products are below the maximum dose recommended by the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) in 2020.
What is the best CBD dosage?
If this is your first-time trying CBD, it’s recommended that you start with a small dose of a lower potency product. When you’ve got used to it, you can increase it bit by bit over a period of time if you want to, until you find the best dosage for you.
Common dosages of CBD:
Never exceed the daily allowance stated on product labels.
- You can get CBD products in different doses, from low to high
- You should always start off with a low dose and never exceed the dose on product labels
