What is CBD oil?
CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, in the cannabis plant. Researchers have been looking at the possible therapeutic uses of CBD.
CBD oils are oils that contain concentrations of CBD. The concentrations and the uses of these oils vary.

Does the oil contain THC?
Yes, due to the nature of the extract all cannabis (hemp) based extracts will contain trace amounts of THC. There is an unwritten rule that an amount up to 0.2% is acceptable in the product. However, the Home Office will say that the extract must contain no THC whatsoever but as this is unworkable, and also in such small amounts that it will not have any psychoactive effects, they tend not to act on it; they have far more important things to be doing. All our oils contain trace amounts which can be found on the lab reports.
Sativa v's Indica
The two major categories of cannabis plants are Indica and Sativa and these can then be cross bread to create a third Hybrid category. Within these categories there are thousands of variations much like the grapes used to make wine. Each of the two main cultivars have different ratios of cannabinoids & terpenes– the naturally occurring chemical compounds that develop as the plant grows, which in turn results in their own range of effects on the body and mind, resulting in a wide range of benefits. Indica strains generally provide a sense of deep body relaxation. Sativa strains tend to provide a more energising experience
