We get asked similar questions all the time so it is about time we did a quick post regarding some common CBD FAQs.
What is CBD?
Whilst we’ve dedicated an entire page to help break down exactly what CBD is (you can find that here), in short, cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the hundreds of naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant.
How Does CBD Actually Work?
Glad you asked. As mammals, we naturally produce cannabinoids (the family of compounds that CBD belongs to) ourselves that interact with our endocannabinoid system. As with all systems in the body, our endocannabinoid system needs to be kept in balance, this is called homeostasis.
Whilst research is ongoing regarding exactly what our endocannabinoid system is responsible for, it is currently thought that it plays an integral role in controlling things like memory, appetite, pain, sleep and mood. So, when you take CBD it is your endocannabinoid system that is able to process the CBD and subsequently allow you to feel the effects.
Is CBD Legal in the U.K?
Another one of the most common CBD FAQs…
in short, of course! So long as the CBD content is less than 0.2% THC. All of The Hemp Garden Products are regularly and rigorously tested to ensure that all of our products are well below the legal limit of THC. All of our lab reports are available for all to see on our website here.
Will I become Addicted to CBD?
CBD is proven to be safe and is non-addictive. But don’t take our word for it, here’s a recent report published by the World Health Organisation (WHO) saying just that!
What Strength CBD Should I Order?
We’re going to sound really boring here but… It depends. We know, we know. But trust us, it really does depend on whether you’re already currently using CBD, your weight, what you’re using CBD for and what kind of product you’re using.
However, as Mum used to say, you can always add, but you can’t take away. And so, we at The Hemp Garden at least, always recommend starting with a more moderate dose at first, increasing it until you find your sweet spot.
