CBD FAQ's

General CBD

What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is an ingredient naturally sourced from the hemp plant. CBD is extracted from hemp paste, made from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant, some brands use hemp seeds to make hemp seed oil.

CBD is one of 100 cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant. It works by stimulating your “endocannabinoid” system, which promotes homeostasis (the state of your body being in-balance), reduces pain, and decreases inflammation.

CBD has been found by users to help with health conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic inflammation, diabetes,however, this is still under research.

Is CBD the same as cannabis?

No, CBD is not the same as cannabis. It is one of the 500 compounds that is found in the hemp plant. And, unlike THC, CBD does not make you high.

Is CBD legal in the UK?

Yes, CBD was legalised in the UK in November 2018. The UK law says CBD-products have to be derived from an industrial hemp strain that is EU-approved. And it must contain less than 0.2% THC. All Leafplus’ products meet the requirements under UK law.

Is CBD safe?

CBD is legalised in the UK for use like any other supplement on the market and most people who use CBD report very little side effects, if any. It is an all-natural, non-toxic, and non-addictive substance. And especially when compared to the side-effects and safety profiles of traditional prescription medication. The science supporting CBD has been widely accepted, which led to it being legalized 3 years ago.

However, you should not use CBD if you’re pregnant or breast-feeding, if you have Parkinson’s disease or if you’re already on some type of medication. You should always consult with your doctor before using CBD.

What are the side-effects of using CBD?

Most people will not experience any side-effects. There are, however, occasional reports of people experiencing fatigue, drowsiness, reduced appetite, dry mouth, and diarrhea. But that is usually the result of them taking too much CBD.

What consumption method should you use?

Each type of CBD product has its own set of benefits and it’s also a matter of preference.
For example, the benefits of edibles are that they’re very easy to dose. But they take a longer time to enter your bloodstream. Vaping is the fastest way to get CBD in your system. But it’s harder to dose and you might not like smoking.

Topicals work more locally and give off CBD more gradually. This makes them a great option for skin conditions and menstrual cramps.

How much CBD should I take, and how often?

There’s no exact scientific consensus on how much CBD you should consume. It will depend on your specific health condition, your intended desire and how your body responds to CBD.

So, it all comes down to what is best for your body.  Most people start with a low amount (5mg per day) and slowly increase their dosage every five to seven days until they find a sweet spot.

How long does it take for CBD to start working?

Your weight, metabolism, and lifestyle will all play a factor in how fast the CBD is absorbed, and the consumption method will also play a huge factor. For some people, results are immediate. But for others, it takes weeks or up to a month before they notice anything.
