CBD oil is fast becoming a household product across the UK with around 1.3 million regular users.
CBD (also known as cannabidiol) is one of the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. While CBD comprises around 40% of the plant, it is a non-psychoactive compound and was made legal in the UK in November 2018.
Unlike cannabis itself, CBD is not addictive as it does not contain THC or any other controlled substances
CBD isolate refers to the purest form of CBD, which contains no other compounds from the cannabis plant. CBD Isolate is completely free of THC and all controlled substances as it consists of the single compound only.
Broad spectrum CBD oil contains other elements of the cannabis plant. It does not contain THC but may contain other small amounts of controlled substances.
Full spectrum CBD oil contains all components of the cannabis plant, including THC. Full spectrum CBD should contain no more than 0.2% THC. The UK Government has advised that all CBD products should not contain any controlled substances going forward.
The endocannabinoid system (“ECS”) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptor proteins. The ECS is found in all human beings and is involved in maintaining our health and wellbeing. While the human body produces its own endocannabinoids sometimes our ECS is not always balanced or working accurately.
There are two main endocannabinoid receptors in the body: CB1 receptors are mostly found in the central nervous system while CB2 receptors are mainly found in immune cells. Normally, when the body is functioning correctly, endocannabinoids bind to these receptors to signal to the ECS to take action
CBD isolate does not contain THC or any other psychoactive components, it is 98%+ pure CBD.
This means that CBD isolate-based products allow you to easily ingest specific quantities of CBD and control dosage without having to worry about THC or any other controlled substances.
The dosage that you take will also depend on the reason that you are taking it, your previous experience with CBD and your physical health.
The FSA recommends that healthy adults do not take more than 70mg of CBD per day.

CBD isolate is easy to take at home and it comes in many forms. It is worth taking some time on our website to find a variety that best suits you.
CBD Isolate Oil
The easiest way to take CBD isolate oil is to take it sublingually. To do this, simply place a drop of the oil underneath your tongue and let it dissolve into your mouth. Let the CBD dissolve for around 90 seconds before washing it down and swallowing.
CBD Isolate Topicals
A CBD topical is a cream (or gel) that is infused with CBD isolate. These are easy to apply and are an excellent place to start for anyone that is nervous about taking CBD orally. You can apply CBD topicals directly to the skin.
CBD Isolate Tablets
Our CBD isolate tablets come in the form of chewable tablets, with one tablet being equal to 15mg of CBD. These are very easy to take - you simply chew them like other gummies or sweets.
CBD Isolate Tinctures
A tincture is usually administered through a pipette and is taken orally. For optimal effects, place a few drops of the CBD tincture underneath your tongue and let it absorb for approximately 90 seconds. Once it has been absorbed, wash the tincture down with some water and swallow.
CBD Isolate Softgels
Our softgels are natural flavoured and are infused with CBD isolate. They are very easy to take and are consumed orally.
