What is CBD?

Known as CBD, Cannabidiol is a natural compound found in the hemp plant. CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant that has shown potential in helping with a wide range of conditions. We extract our CBD using CO2 then mix it with coconut oil to create our CBD oil.

Is CBD effective?

We are primed for CBD because the human body is teeming with cannabinoid receptors. Similar to how vitamins are used to boost the immune system, CBD can be used to supplement the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Our body manufactures endocannabinoids in order to pass messages concerning functions such as pain, inflammation, memory, appetite and mood. Because CBD is a cannabinoid derived from a plant it can affect our body in the same way as endocannabinoids.

Will CBD help me with my illness?

All our products are sold as food supplements to help promote everyday wellbeing. They are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Are CBD and THC the same thing?

As the two main ingredients in the cannabis plant, it can be easy to confuse CBD and THC. But other than both being called cannabinoids, they are not the same thing. High levels of THC are commonly found in the popular plants but less so in the case of CBD, which is reassuringly non-psychoactive. This is brilliant news for the thousands of people looking to benefit from its proposed curative properties without enduring unwanted side effects. All Love Hemp products are guaranteed to be 100% THC free. Furthermore, CBD exhibits no adverse effects on humans indicative of the potential for causing harm or forming addiction.

Is CBD Hemp Oil legal?

Yes, CBD Hemp Oil is legal in the EU and US.

How does cannabidiol/CBD oil work?

CBD doesn’t contain the same psychoactive properties as THC, meaning it can be ingested without the side effects usually associated with marijuana or cannabis. CBD is thought to work by activating the body to use its own endocannabinoids more effectively by either activating or inhibiting compounds in our ECS. This allows our naturally-produced endocannabinoids to bind to them more effectively. CBD doesn’t stimulate the endocannabinoid system directly, rather it helps up-regulate the system we already have in place.

Are CBD Oil and Hemp Oil Safe? Are there negative side effects?

CBD is considered very safe and side effects are very rare. All our products have gone through the most stringent production processes, and we’re confident that our hemp CBD oil is safe for consumption. As ever, if you are already on any medication you should consult with your doctor beforehand.

Why are hemp-derived cannabidiol/CBD oil products so expensive?

Each stage of our production is completed to the highest possible standard. We use only organically grown EU approved low THC cannabis strains and extracted via food-grade CO2. This extraction is the gold standard for producing high quality, pure extracts with zero residual solvents. Our prices are some of the most competitive on the market, bringing you premium CBD products at reasonable rates.

What is the best method of ingestion?

It depends entirely on what product you purchase from our shop, but everything comes with its own dedicated set of instructions to make ingestion as simple as possible. From balm that you apply to your lips, gummies and jelly domes that you chew, capsules that you swallow with water to the liquid you drop under your tongue, there’s something to suit everyone. This means that our products fit easily into your life.

Will I get ‘high’?

No. CBD is non-psychoactive and non-addictive. For you, that means the safe and secure use of CBD, able to harness its benefits while being in complete control. Unlike it’s popular relative THC, CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects at all.

What CBD dosage is right for me?

When it comes to achieving the best dosage of CBD, a lot depends on what results you’re looking to achieve. Everyone from experienced CBD users to complete novices wonders this, but realistically there are no fixed rules on how much CBD an individual should be taking. We can, however, advise on some factors to keep in mind to help you make an educated decision. Firstly, it is important to remember that CBD intake is affected by the following influences:

  • The concentration and quality of CBD
  • Your bodyweight
  • Your unique body chemistry
  • The condition/ailment being treated

The main rule is that there aren’t a ‘one size fits all’ dosage when it comes to CBD and you’ll likely have to go through some trial and error to work out the optimum dosage for your individual needs. You should also be aware that as your body changes over time, so too do the receptors in your Endocannabinoid System which are directly responsible for interactions with CBD. As a result, the amount of CBD you require will change throughout the course of your life.

All of our products have clear dosing instructions and it is recommended that you read and follow these carefully.

CBD & Bodyweight

You should first estimate how much CBD you require based on your bodyweight. As with most substances, individuals with a higher bodyweight will require more CBD to experience its effects than someone with a lower bodyweight. A good rule of thumb to determine your proper CBD dosage is to take 1-6mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of bodyweight. Use your level of pain or the severity of your ailment to work out whether to go for the lower or higher end of this amount. If you are taking CBD to better your general wellbeing and peace of mind, adjust the amount of CBD accordingly until you become aware of improvement.

Another important piece of advice is to start off small and increase your dose slowly over time. Everyone is made differently and because of this, we are all affected by substances at different rates.

How long does CBD oil last?

This again largely has to do with the delivery method you choose to administer CBD oil into your system. Depending on the product you use and your individual biochemistry, CBD oil can last from a few hours at the most, to several.

The chart below shows a general breakdown of how long different CBD products can last. However, this may vary depending on the percentage of CBD in your product, your own unique characteristics, and how much you take at once. Please remember to always strictly adhere to the ‘recommended use’ guides available with all of our products.

CBD Delivery Method Onset of Effects Duration of Effects
CBD Oils like tinctures or drops (sublingual) Up to 30 minutes – Drops and tinctures bypass the digestive system so CBD is absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the thin skin and membrane under the tongue 2-4 hours
CBD Edibles/Capsules (digested) Up to 80 minutes – Edibles must pass through the digestive system before being absorbed through the liver 4-6 hours
CBD Topicals like lotions or balms Up to 2 hours – Topicals must be absorbed through the skin and do not enter the bloodstream 4 hours or longer
CBD Transdermals like wraps or masks Up to 2 hours – Again, they are absorbed through the skin and do not enter the bloodstream Longer than 4 hours depending on CBD administration rate
