CBDLife UK™ FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
The two main ingredients that are found in the marijuana plant are CBD and THC. Together these both belong to an exclusive class of compounds known as cannabinoids.
Most of the CBD used as a food supplement is found in the least processed form of the cannabis plant, known as hemp. Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, but they couldn’t be more different.
From birth, we naturally produce endocannabinoids-a compound similar to CBD. People are shocked to find out it’s already in our body, and our bodies already love it. Cannabinoids aren’t just found in the cannabis plant, they’re in us too.
CBD is known as a non-psychoactive cannabinoid meaning when you take it, it won’t get you high-this unique feature of CBD is what makes it so great and appealing for taking care of ourselves.
CBD Life UK products are 100% natural, safe, non-toxic and are of the highest quality.
As we sell our CBD product as food supplements, we are not permitted to make medical claims, any company doing so are in breech of EU Law. It’s always important to do your own thorough research-depending on what you are using CBD for, before trying it out.
Almost everyone can use CBD! The only people we recommend not using CBD is pregnant and breast feeding women. If you are on any medication, we would always recommend taking to a medical professional before trying CBD. It could be a great additition to your other food supplements.
People often believe that because CBD is associated with the cannabis plant, that if they take it will make them “stoned” like smoking cannabis does! WRONG!
CBD is simply a non-intoxicating component which has enormous potential. Your state of mind etc. will not change if you take CBD at all. Although it can make changes in the body- this isn’t one of them.
The way we extract CBD allows us to pull all of the natural compounds out of the cannabis plant without getting anything nasty in there as well. Not only are you NOT getting high, but you are getting a product from us that’s natural and safe.
CBD is legal, because hemp is legal in the UK. Hemp is a plant that is safe, natural, and non-toxic. It can be used for almost anything. There need not to be any grey areas when it comes to CBD.
When it comes to cannabis, however, it is still illegal to use it or possess it. Maybe this is why people tend to get confused. Cannabidiol (CBD) though, is not considered a controlled substance in the UK. It is therefore 100% legal and can be freely distributed in the UK without restrictions.
If you want to use CBD products it is TOTALLY legal to do so.
When it comes to cannabis, drugs tests pick up THC (the compound that does make you high). Drugs test are carried out because THC is known for the feelings of euphoria it provides and this is the illegal part!
Most hemp oil or CBD products are sold with much lower levels of THC (less than 0.2%) so most consumers will never have a problem passing a drugs test
Remember, CBD isn’t even being tested for and most work places aren’t going to have a problem with you using it- it’s non-psychoactive
All of this said, it is not common for CBD users to turn out a positive drug test for THC. Yet, sometimes when people are new to consuming full spectrum CBD, it can trigger what is known as a false positive.
It is also important to note that CBD was found to interact with the body’s metabolism of certain compounds. What this means is that CBD users who also use cannabis may actually show higher levels of THC for a longer period of time than when using cannabis alone.
Another example we can give to reiterate this is poppy seeds: While poppy seeds don’t actually contain morphine, the seeds can become coated by, or absorb, opium extract during harvesting. Research shows that morphine and codeine can sometimes be detected in the urine up to 48 hours after ingestion of poppy seeds from some pastries, such as bagels, muffins, and cakes.
USADA cannot predict the amount of poppy seeds you can eat and remain within a threshold to still pass a drugs test.
To summarise, although consumers shouldn’t have a problem passing a drugs test, consumers that take full spectrum CBD products may fail a urine test for traces of THC. However, further testing such as a blood test, will show that the levels of THC from a full spectrum CBD product are none psychoactive.
Just because the cannabis plant can be known for recreational use that does not mean that it automatically makes it addictive. It is true however that you can become addicted to cannabis but what about CBD, which is made from the other cannabis plant which is hemp.
CBD is categorically not addictive, so let your worries fade away!
A report last year by the World Health Organization declared that CBD is non-addictive, writing, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential” and that “CBD is well-tolerated and safe for human consumption.
CBD is not addictive as it contains no/very little THC. THC is the ingredient that causes cannabis to be addictive in some people.
When it comes to taking CBD with other medications, we only ever advise one thing- if you are unsure, check with a medical professional before using it as it can, on occasion, interact with other medicines. Always stick to the recommended dose too and if you are taking other meds keep a two hour window between taking CBD and whatever else you take.
CBD is perfectly safe for children.
CBD is non-psychoactive so your child will categorically not get high from using it. CBD Life UK products are oil extracted and prove to have no negative effects at all.
There is no straight, solid scientific information that states how much CBD you should be taking at any one time, always start off with a small dose and work your way up.
Height and weight play a part as well as the quality of the CBD oil. If you are bigger or taller than the average person you may need more and visa versa. Also, if you have smoked cannabis in the past you may feel like you need more.
Either way we advise you do not go over the daily dosage recommendation of 200mg.
It’s available in many forms, and all the different means of consumption, make CBD a very versatile product.
The best methods will depend on the person but always remember to start with the recommended serving size, then increase from there.
Here at CBD Life UK we have a method of ingestion to suit everyone. The sublingual route of taking CBD is probably the same as the oral route (capsules) with regards to easiness, simplicity, and comfort.
If you are not familiar with the term ‘sublingual’ it basically means ‘absorption under the tongue’. This is how you use our CBD oil and full extract paste!
You can take our capsules, vape our products, apply CBD to your skin via our balm, enjoy our edibles and we also have a dab section.
