Ever Heard Of Hemp? We Let You In All You Need To Know

The words hemp and CBD are becoming increasingly more well known, but what exactly are they?

Essentially, the hemp plant is also known as Cannabis sativa L. The hemp plant contains a number of cannabinoids; these are the compounds found in cannabis.

Some of these are psychoactive and others are not. One example of a psychoactive compound is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This induces the ‘high’ often associated with cannabis or hemp.

Other compounds from the hemp plant are non psychoactive. This includes CBD, a naturally occurring compound which also goes by the name of cannabidiol. CBD is made using the leaves of the hemp plant and sometimes the stalk.

Although CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, it shouldn't be confused with medical cannabis or cannabis oil. In the UK, CBD is not a controlled substance and is legal to buy, whereas cannabis is a controlled drug.

How Is Vitabiotics Brains CBD Made?

There are three different types of natural CBD; CBD Isolate, Full-Spectrum CBD and Broad Spectrum CBD, with CBD Isolate being the purest form of natural CBD. Some companies also market synthetic CBD though this may not be clear from looking at the packaging. All three products in the Vitabiotics’ entire CBD range come in the pure isolate form (99% purity*), and each product is guaranteed THC free**, meaning they are not addictive and you definitely won’t experience any ‘high’. Vitabiotics Brains CBD isolate has been tested and verified for banned substances in sport.

In fact, THC is not actually permitted in CBD products.

Vitabiotics Brains CBD ensures quality from seed to store, so you can safely include it in your daily life. The hemp seeds used are grown and selected from a carefully selected variety and the CBD Isolate is extracted at a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certified facility in Britain. This means you can guarantee that each product contains exactly what it says. The CBD is also tested and validated and only released following rigorous quality specifications.

How Much CBD Is Safe To Take?

There isn’t a set recommended amount of CBD to take, however, if you have never taken CBD before, we advise that you start with 7 drops of Vitabiotics Brains CBD, twice daily.

Then you can start working your way up to 28 drops a day (1ml). Don’t take more than 70mg of CBD a day.

CBD does affect everyone differently and this can vary depending on the strength of CBD taken as well as how it is taken.

Vitabiotics Brains CBD is best taken sublingually for maximum absorption. Drop the CBD liquid under the tongue, and let it sit there for one minute, or until fully absorbed.

CBD is not suitable for those under the age of 18, nor is it suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

If you are under medical supervision, have epilepsy, suffer from food allergies, or are allergic to any of the ingredients,  it’s also best to consult with your GP or pharmacist before taking CBD.
