What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol.
It’s a naturally occurring plant compound found in the hemp and marijuana plants.
CBD is reported to help with anxiety, insomnia, inflammation, chronic discomforts and lead an improvement to overall mental and physical wellbeing.
How does CBD work?
All humans (in fact, all animals) have a complex network of neurotransmitters and receptors in their bodies called the endocannabinoid system.
Research is still underway, but we do know the endocannabinoid system has a role to play with our mood, sleep, appetite, pain, fertility, and many more aspects of our body and minds.
Cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with the endocannabinoid system and gives us the range of benefits associated with CBD.
Is CBD legal in the UK?
Yes, all CBD products sold by 麻® Chinese Hemp are legal to buy and consume in the UK.
Will CBD get me ‘high’?
No, CBD will not get you high. The high associated with cannabis is caused by THC. All of our products are 100% THC-free.
What is CBD Isolate Powder?
During the manufacturing process, everything else apart from the CBD is removed from the hemp plant. The result is CBD Isolate Powder - 99% pure cannabidiol.
Is CBD safe? What are the side effects?
CBD is generally thought of as very safe. In rare cases, CBD may cause fatigue or diarrhoea, but these symptoms usually pass very quickly. In these case, cut your dosage in half and monitor the effects.
What is the most effective way to take CBD?
There are many ways of taking CBD, and each method has different advantages depending on why you are using CBD.
The most popular way is sublingual - putting a drop of CBD Oil or Isolate Powder under your tongue.
The fasted way to introduce CBD into your system is by vaporising and inhaling CBD Isolate Powder.
If you are suffering from muscle pain, then applying CBD directly to the affected area via a cream or topical can also be effective.
How much CBD should I take and how often?
There is no fixed answer here.
People take CBD for many different reasons. Other factors such as diet, body weight, height, and fitness also play a role.
If you’re taking CBD for the first time or coming back to CBD after a break, it’s always best to start low.
Take 5mg a day for one week and observe the effects. If you feel like you need a stronger dosage, take 10mg a day for one week and again observe. By increasing and decreasing your dosage over an extended period, you will soon find exactly how much is right for you.
Will I pass a drug test if I use Chinese Hemp products?
You don't have to worry about failing a drug test if you use our products.
麻® Chinese Hemp CBD is completely legal in the UK, and our products are 100% THC free.
What’s the difference between hemp, cannabis and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are different strains of the cannabis plant.
Marijuana contains more THC (the compound that gets you high), whereas hemp has more CBD (which calms you down).
All of our products contain CBD derived from 100% natural hemp plants.
