What is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is an amazing compound found in cannabis, however the vast majority of cannabidiol is extracted from hemp. Hemp is a commonly used term for strains of the cannabis sativa plant containing very low levels of THC. It is available to use as oral oil drops, edibles such such as sweets, chocolates and drinks, in topical creams and skincare and much more. 


Is CBD legal?

CBD is legal in the UK as long as it contains less than 0.2%THC, and is predominantly sold as a food supplement. All products stocked at MowbrayCBD comply with this law and are lab certified with batch codes to assure quality and traceability. 


What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?

Whilst both hemp and marijuana are both species of cannabis, they are in fact very different. Hemp refers to a cannabis sativa which is known for its low levels of THC, the psychoactive ingredient that that gets you high - Hemp has an extensive history for being used to produce a variety of items over the years such as clothing and resin 'plastic.' Marijuana is currently illegal in the UK as it contains high levels of THC.  


Will CBD Help Me?

CBD has been shown in various studies to have a multitude of health benefits, and while the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency & the Food and Drug Administration does not currently recognise cannabinoid products as health products, there are many customers and CBD users reporting fantastic results. There is no shortage of published articles and studies online. Always use a trusted and reputable supplier for your CBD products. Please research the uses and effects of CBD and consult your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. 


Which products are best for me?

Oral drops are the fastest and best way of getting CBD in to your system as are the vape juices. Edibles are great for a fun and convenient dose, whilst topical creams make more sense when trying to target a particular area to reduce inflammation. Bath bombs are a great way to wind down after a stressful day. Everyone is different and you will find what works best for you. Please do get in contact if you have any questions. 


How do I choose the right dosage?

Dosing CBD correctly involves many different variables. We encourage customers new to CBD to start with a low dosage and gradually increase it until you feel the desired benefit. If you suffer from a severe health condition or take any medication, you should discuss using CBD with your doctor. Remember it is legal and you can be open and honest with your healthcare team about using it. 


What does WHO say about CBD?

The World Health Organisation released a Critical Review Report for CBD in June 2018. The report is available online and it was advised that CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile.

It was also reported that In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. There is also preliminary evidence that CBD may be a useful treatment for a number of other medical conditions.
