Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating plant extract found in the hemp plant, not to be confused with the marijuana plant. For a long time, ‘CBD’ was hidden in the shadow of ‘THC’ (the compound in Cannabis Sativa that causes a high) but in the last five years, there has been a dramatic increase in favourable scientific research into CBD, a cannabinoid which has been used for wellness across the centuries.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the non-toxic and completely safe ‘Hemp plant’ which is legal in the UK. CBD is not on the UK’s Controlled Substances list; therefore, it can be freely distributed without restrictions.
We can’t give medical advice about ‘Your Illness’ so please check with your doctor before buying our products. Using CBD as a daily supplement is a great way to balance your Endocannabinoid system. With nutrients, vitamins, minerals, Omega-3 and protein, you don’t need to be sick to reap the wellness benefits of CBD. Think preventative!
The simple answer is NO as none of our CBD products contain THC – the well-known cannabinoid that produces the high. All CBDWise products are non-psychoactive, natural and safe.
Definitely No! UK Drug tests look for traces of THC, the illegal psychoactive cannabinoid. CBDWise products contain less than 0.2% or zero THC. We stringently test our products and supply on request 3rd party certificates of analysis showing exactly what goes into our products.
CBD is categorically non-addictive. A World Health Organization report stated, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential” and that “CBD is well-tolerated and safe for human consumption.” For clarity – THC is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that might cause it to be additive to some people.
With taking anything new we would always suggest speaking with a medical professional. CBD can interact with some medicines but only at very high levels so it is on the whole very safe. We find lots of our customers actually reduce the number of prescription drugs they take, especially pain killers.
While legal throughout the European Union, we advise caution when travelling with CBD because of the slim chance that airport staff may confuse it for illegal cannabis products and seize it. When travelling outside of Europe we strongly recommend not travelling with CBD on your person or in your luggage unless you have researched the laws regarding CBD in the country you plan to travel to. Ultimately it’s your decision to take.
