CBD based products come from cannabis and are chemicals naturally found in the marijuana plant. The Most common misconception is because CBD comes from marijuana, it will make you high or it is illegal. CBD does not make you high, the cannabinoid that creates the high effect in the human body is known as THC, this is another cannabinoid strand that is found in marijuana but is almost removed during the formulation process of our products. All our products are well within the UK regulations, there is a great deal of confusion in the UK market about what’s legal and a lot of it is misinterpreted.
There will always be controversy around cannabis-based products like CBD oil’s and CBD based balms due the recreational use of marijuana. The health benefits of CBD products are a subject that has been discussed by many, but the potential benefits are widely known and they are becoming more commonly used.

Research had been carried out where a number of people with epilepsy added oral doses of CBD to their normal current anti epilepsy medications. It was found that the participants had fewer seizures over a period of time. Research is still ongoing in this area.
