Oils that contain concentrations of CBD are known as CBD Oils. CBD is a naturally occurring cannabinoid (one of many) that is derived from the hemp plant that has been used by many a culture over many centuries for natural health and wellbeing.


CBD, Natural Health & The Endocannabinoid System

The Human Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of cannabinoid receptors expressed in cells in both the central and peripheral nervous system. CBD and all cannabinoids attach to certain receptors within the body which naturally produces cannabinoids of its own.

The Human Endocannibinoid System

The body has two receptors for cannabinoids: CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors are located mainly in the brain and throughout the body.

CB2 is mainly found in the immune system and associated with pain and inflammation.

Research shows that CBD encourages the body to use more if its own cannabinoids. This can have potentially have positive effects on health and wellbeing. The benefits of CBD by studies carried out by arrange of researchers including:

British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, Current Pharmaceutical Design, Neurotherapeutics, Clinical Hemorheology, Microcirculation Journal of Clinical Investigation and Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease

The drying process is also natural. This is always done at temperatures below 35o C to ensure the potency of the extracts.

✓ Extraction

In order to produce the highest quality oil, plant extraction is crucial. All our products go through a powerful yet subtle and gentle extraction. Our suppliers have state of the art extraction facilities (combined with natures very own CO2) to produce the highest quality CBD. 

The extraction technique uses low temperatures and super high pressure to extract the CBD oil. We trust the super-critical CO2 method to precisely extract and protect the CBD essence.

Other methods can often loose beneficial molecules resulting in less quality extract!

✓ CBD is NOT psychoactive and does not induce a mind-altering state!

The commonly known cannabinoid compound in cannabis is Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

This is not to be confused with CBD as the compounds have completely different affects.

THC is the compound that gets you ‘high’ whereas CBD does not. All our products have less than 0.2% trace of THC which is within the legal limits and completely safe.
