Q. I AM LOOKING TO TAKE CBD FOR ITS HEALTH BENEFITS RATHER THAN FITNESS/SPORTS RECOVERY – WHICH PRODUCT WOULD BE BEST?
We have absolutely zero THC in all our products.
Q. IS IT BEST TO TAKE CBD AT NIGHT?
No – CBD is completely legal and is not a banned substance in the UK therefore it won’t be flagged up on any tests. CBD is actually the only cannabinoid that WADA has not prohibited, which is why even top athletes can safely enjoy the benefits that CBD offers.
Q. CAN YOU RECOMMEND WHICH STRENGTH I SHOULD TAKE?
I talk about CBD products a lot and that is because I found something as natural as a vitamin that has literally changed my life. After having kids I began to suffer from anxiety. It comes and goes, but sometimes it is bad. A modern day adult’s life is very stressful. Owning my own business and being home with my kids makes some days full of stress and anxiety. I mainly use CBD oil for anxiety, however I have found it very useful for some of my chronic pain.
CBD is known to reduce anxiety. The best way to use it for anxiety is to find your best dosage. Everyone has different dosage needs. You might need 5 mg daily to reduce your anxiety, but 15 mg daily to reduce body pains. I recommend playing around with the dosage starting at 5 mg and working up to 25 mg to find your needs. I personally need about 15mg daily to reduce my anxiety or 25-30 mg daily for body aches and pains.

You will love how simple this recipe is. In a blender you will add the strawberries and 1/4 cup water. Blend until a puree forms, then add the sugar and blend for another 15 seconds. Add the lemon juice and blend for another 15 seconds.
Using CBD oil for pain can be done a few different ways. You can take it orally which is very effective for helping with chronic pain, or you can use the rubs for a quick pain reliever. I slather the balm all over my achy feet, neck, and shoulders all the time. I love it.
First, I want to talk about this CBD Strawberry Lemonade Recipe. OMG, it is so delicious and refreshing that I will be making this every single week for all of spring and summer.

It is also under 100 calories per serving!
As mentioned above, THC is responsible for the psychoactive properties attributed to the cannabis sativa or marijuana plant. However, it also has some health benefits accompanying those. CBD, on the other hand, has none of the psychoactive properties or side-effects. Its primary function is to interact with the CB-2 receptors in the body to regulate the immune system.
Cannabinoids are substances that interact with the endocannabinoid system featured in the human body. They have a regulatory function and either stimulate or inhibit certain responses depending on the type of cannabinoid and the cannabinoid receptor that they are interacting with.
What Is CBD?
To date, researchers identified 113 cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. The primary cannabinoids are CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). These two exist in high concentrations that are way in excess of those produced by the body or contained in other plants.
However, the body manufactures only tiny amounts of endocannabinoids. Thus, it is easy for the system to find itself overwhelmed when it does not have enough endocannabinoids to cover demand. This is when phytocannabinoids enter the picture.
CBD is present in the species of Cannabis Sativa known more plainly as the hemp plant. It is also present in the Cannabis Indica species (marijuana) in lower concentrations than in hemp. Manufacturers mainly extract CBD from the hemp plant due to the higher concentration as well as, the lower concentration of THC.
