Frequently Asked Questions
CBD oil or cannabidiol oil is a substance derived from the hemp plant. Most CBD oil comes from industrial hemp rather than psychoactive marijuana strains. While the two plants are related, industrial hemp does not contain nearly as much psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol, another cannabinoid better known as THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol is a major active ingredient in marijuana. EU approved hemp strains must contain no more than 0.2% THC on a dry weight basis – a nearly negligible amount.
CBD works by co-operating with cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a biological system, which helps to maintain effective functioning of the important systems in our body. With the regular and correct use of CBD, it will start to increase cannabinoid receptors. As a result of more cannabinoid receptors, the endocannabinoid system will become more active. A consistent recommended daily dose will help maintain the levels of CBD in your body, ensuring you benefit from the positive effects.
Taking CBD will vary for each Supreme CBD product. To ensure you are using the CBD correctly, follow the directions in our detailed dosage guide on our industry-leading peel and reveal labels.
The amount of CBD you should take depends on a range of factors, including:
Determining how much CBD to take and how to take it can seem overwhelming. Starting with Supreme CBD oil or CBD gummies at a small dose is the easiest and quickest way to begin experiencing the benefits of CBD. However, it is important to check your Supreme CBD product for the type of extract it utilises and proper dosage instructions.
For the average first time user, we suggest starting slow, taking a smaller dosage to see how it affects you. You can always increase this as time goes on. However, you should never take more than the maximum daily dosage of 70mg. For more detailed dosage instructions, read the dosage guide on our peel and reveal labels.
Keep track of how much CBD you’re taking and how you’re feeling afterward. When taking CBD, always follow the instructions on the package of the product you have purchased and never exceed the maximum daily dosage of 70mg.
Full-spectrum CBD is pure, unprocessed and unfiltered hemp extract. It contains all of the hemp plants nutrients such as cannabinoids, terpenes and essential oils. Full-spectrum may contain traces of THC however this will always be under 0.3%, which will not invoke a ‘high’ feeling. The key difference broad-spectrum and full-spectrum is that full-spectrum extracts may contain trace amounts of THC (under 0.2%), while broad-spectrum extracts have the THC completely removed. However, both broad and full-spectrum extracts feature hemp's wide array of cannabinoids, meaning that they both offer the entourage effect. Neither blend can invoke a 'high' feeling.
The entourage effect is when all the different cannabinoids in the hemp plant are ingested together (CBD, CBN, CDG), rather than in isolation. The theory is that by using the whole hemp plant rather than a singular aspect, there's a boost in the positive effects and overall properties of the cannabinoids.
1500mg CBD in a 30ml bottle = 50mg per ml (5% concentration)
Other dosage information:
CBD oil is made from the hemp plant. The hemp is grown to maturity, harvested, air-dried and milled into fine hemp grounds. Then, the cannabinoids and plant nutrients are extracted from the processed material. The resulting extract is combined with a carrier such as a hemp seed oil, olive oil, MCT oil or coconut oil. Finally, it is bottled, and samples of each batch are analysed for quality and purity.
All our Supreme CBD products are made from the highest-grade hemp materials. Our processes don’t include complex chemicals or diluted solvents, but instead, we give you great organic ingredients derived from our American-grown hemp plants in specifically selected farms.
The farmers who grow our hemp harvest from fields that contain no pesticides or harmful chemicals, and once gathered, the materials are sent for three-tier laboratory testing, where they undergo a closed-loop supercritical CO2 extraction process.
No. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid that makes you high; CBD does not have any psychoactive properties. While many CBD oils, particularly full-spectrum products, contain trace amounts of THC, it is not enough to make you high. If you are at a risk for random drug tests, for example through your job or as an athlete, you may wish to choose a CBD oil that is entirely devoid of THC – check out our Athlete's range.
CBD oil is generally considered to be safe for most people, and few people experience side effects.
Hemp oil is the name given any oil derived from the hemp plant; CBD oil is an oil containing high amounts of CBD, made from either the hemp or the cannabis plant. While much CBD oil is also hemp oil, not all hemp oil is CBD oil; hemp oil made from the seeds of the hemp plant will not contain active CBD.
Yes! Most CBD oil is produced from industrial hemp, the same plant used to make hemp textiles and hemp seeds. This plant contains trace amounts of psychoactive THC – not enough to make you high although this can cause a positive result on a drugs test. For people to who this may concern we offer our athlete’s range.
All our CBD products are 100% legal to buy in the UK and EU.
Our full-spectrum range contains less than the legal amount of THC (0.2%) – not enough to become psychoactive (high), but as it contains a trace of THC it is possible to fail a drug test, we recommend our broad-spectrum athlete's range as a perfect alternative as you have zero chance of failing a test.
