CBD Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD? CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is one of over 100 Phytocannabinoids (chemical compounds) found in the Cannabis Hemp plant. CBD makes up for over 40% of the plant’s extract. Other Cannabinoids include THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid), CBDA (cannabidiolic acid), CBN (cannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBC (cannabichromene) and CBL (cannabicyclol). CBD is normally extracted from the “Hemp” plant (a term used to classify varieties of Cannabis that contain 0.3% or less THC content (by dry weight)).
Will CBD get me “high”?
Is all CBD the same?
CBD comes in various forms: Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum and Isolate.
Full-spectrum CBD is made with an extract that contains all or nearly all of the compounds naturally present in the cannabis plant. This obviously includes CBD, as well as other cannabinoids (CBN, CBC, and CBG to name just a few), terpenes, flavonoids, and much more.
Isolate CBD, on the other hand, contains only CBD.
Broad Spectrum CBD (often called “distillate”) is in between the 2 and is normally “THC free” but still contains some of the other Cannabinoids.
Why does the price of CBD vary so much?
You may see sellers on auction sites like eBay and Gumtree etc selling CBD Oils at really cheap prices. Some sellers often offer 10ml bottles of 1000mg CBD Oil for under £20 with "buy-one-get-one-free" on some. At CBD-UK, we cannot buy the raw materials at these prices so we couldn't understand how a seller could offer CBD at these prices. The answer was revealed recently when the Cannabis Trades Association (CTAUK) bought 6 different CBD Oils from eBay and had them laboratory tested. 4 of them had nearly zero CBD and the other 2 had less than half of the stated amount.
Always buy your CBD from a trusted company.
