Hemp & CBD

Discover the benefits of nourishing your endocannabinoid system using our CBD oil and hemp supplements

What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?

CBD is just one of many cannabinoids found in the resin glands (trichomes) of the female cannabis plant. CBD, along with its more famous cousin Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), are the two most prevalent cannabinoids found in cannabis and have been the subject of much research. THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid that produces a “high” or a feeling of being "stoned". CBD products in the UK contain zero THC and will not produce a high. Many people report a feeling of general relaxation and peace of mind from taking CBD products. CBD is proven to be especially effective in preventing seizures, particularly in children, without the nasty side effects of prescription pharmaceuticals. 

How does it work?

The endocannabionoid system (ECS) is a network of receptors found throughout the human body (in fact, all mammals). Cannabinoids such as CBD bind to these receptors and help toward creating homeostasis in the body.

Our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids called endocannabinoids (endo meaning internal) and cannabinoids from plants are called phytocannabinoids (phyto meaning plant). Cannabinoids can be found in many other things (including breast milk) but the most potent source is the cannabis plant (Cannabis Sativa).  

If (through the stresses of modern life, unhealthy diet and lifestyle or chronic illness) the ECS is deficient in cannabinoids, it can have an effect on so many of the body’s functions including (but not limited to): appetite, digestion, mood, emotion (in particular fear, stress and anxiety), immunity, sleep, fertility, inflammation and pain. You can see here where the receptors are located throughout the body:
 

Our hemp

Our hemp is from a coop in Lithuania who believe as strongly as us that Mother Nature has the answers and trust in her ability to grow the perfect crop without the use of pesticides or chemicals. We use every part of this raw product to make our hemp tea, capsules, oils, protein powder and trichomes. All of our ingredients are from companies who actually care about organic and ethical farming practices. 

Our oils

Our oils are made from a Sussex grown organic hemp seed carrier oil infused with a hemp extract containing not only CBD but many other cannabinoids including CBDV, CBDA, CBG, CBN and CBC. We tried many carrier oils to find the best flavour for our oils and found this to be the tastiest. We infuse our oils with hemp flowers too to give you all the nourishing cannabinoid goodness possible. In the extraction process a lot of the naturally occurring terpenes are lost, so we add these back into our final product to give our oils an ever more pleasing taste and scent, using only non-synthetic natural canna terpenes. In other words, we have created what we believe to been of the finest range of oils you can find on the market today.
 

Nourishing the ECS with supplements such as ours can help toward bringing back homeostatis in the body giving you a feeling of general wellbeing and balance.
