CBD Beverages – Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a chemical compound that is extracted from the hemp plant. CBD is just one of more than 100 different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. This particular cannabinoid has caught the attention of the wellness industry with its potential therapeutic properties, offering a sense of calm and overall wellbeing.
This is one of the biggest misconceptions about CBD. We can confirm that our CBD does not have the ability to produce any kind of psychoactive “high” because it only contains trace amounts of THC in some products and no (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the main psychoactive ingredient of hemp in others.
CBD beverages are legal in the UK as long as they do not contain more than 0.2% of THC. This is a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. For CBD products to be legally sold, they must also be derived from an industrial hemp strain.
This is a question that we get asked all of the time. Drinking a hot beverage can often be a rather therapeutic experience. When you bring CBD or hemp into the equation, even more so! It really is the perfect combination of therapeutic components, making CBD and hemp beverages the ideal product for those seeking a sense of overall wellbeing.
Whilst the bioavailability of CBD and hemp beverages is typically lower than other CBD products, such as oils, you can still extract plenty of therapeutic benefits from the consumption of these benefits.
As we’ve already mentioned, drinking a hot beverage can also be a therapeutic experience.
There is 20mg of CBD per cup in Purity’s CBD infused coffee. Therefore, we suggest 1-2 cups per day consumed in the morning or early afternoon.
To store your CBD and hemp beverages, we suggest that you keep it in an upright position at a stable temperature, away from extreme light, heat, or moisture. A dry pantry cupboard is a great place to store your beverages, or in the refrigerator.
