CBD Oil FAQ Section
Most asked questions regarding CBD oil.
How much should I take?
When introducing any new food or food supplement into your diet we would always recommend starting slowly. Our oil is very concentrated (10%) so each 1ml equals 100mg of CBD + other cannabinoids and terpines. 2 drops equals c10mg CBD and that should be enough to feel an initial effect which will last up to 6-8 hours, so can be repeated 3 times during a 24 hour period. Everyone is different and some people find they need more initially to achieve the desired result. - their own 'Sweet Spot'.
If I use CBD products, will it show in the new Garda Roadside Drug Tests?
The Gardai are testing for THC, not CBD. THC is the psychoactive component of Cannabis, CBD is NON-Psychoactive, and our products contain less than 0.2% THC in compliance with EU Regulation. CBD should not affect the test.
Will Hemp derived CBD get me stoned?
No. While all our products do contain trace amounts of THC (<0.2% and within the legal EU tolerances) CBD is described as being non-psychoactive. Some people report an initial feeling of natural tiredness. That being the case we recommend that you do not drive or operate any heavy machinery.
Are CBD/Hemp products legal in Ireland and the EU?
Yes, all our products are either a food supplement, or in the case of the hemp shots a complete food. The use of which is not intended to treat, cure, diagnose or medicate any illness.
Whats the difference between Hemp, Marijuana and Cannabis?
Both hemp and marijuana are part of the cannabis family. For a cannabis plant to be called hemp it needs to have below 0.2% THC content and similarly for a cannabis plant to be called marijuana is needs to have more than 0.2% THC content.
If I take CBD oil will it show in a drug test?
Trace amounts of THC the element of the plant that a cannabis drug test tests for, may or may not show in a drug test and can give what is known as a 'false positive' subject to the sensitivity of the test. You are ultimately responsible for what you choose to put into your body so we always advise to do your own research and act with caution.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes work synergistically with all the other elements of the plant to help produce the 'entourage effect', where the individual elements of the plant are combined to equal more than each element on its own - like a good marraige where one and one makes 3! Terpines act like a gate keeper and prime our cells to receive the CBDs from our oil.
What do we mean by Full Spectrum?
This means that you benefit from all the elements of the plant working together to produce the entourage effect, rather than just CBD isolate which is only one of the many different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant
Are the plants used in your products organically grown?
Yes of course! Whether grown here in Ireland or from our suppliers within the EU - No pesticides, herbicides, growth enhancers are used in the cultivation of our plants all of which are non-GMO. We care about what we put in our bodies.
Do you use the flower of the plant for oil extraction or are stems and stalks used as well?
No, we only use the flower of specially grown cannabis plants. The plants are specially chosen for their high CBD content.
What extraction method of extraction is used to obtain the oil?
We use only a method called critical CO2 extraction, it is a high pressure low temperature way of obtaining the oil. By using this method it ensures that all the beneficial cannabinoids of the plant and its terpine profile are retained - therefore maximising the overall effect. It is the most modern and cleanest method of extraction without using any harmful chemicals or solvents.
What about shipping?
We ship our oils, creams, tea and hemp juice powder both nationally and internationaly. Due to the nature of the frozen hemp shots we only offer national overnight delivery or local collection. We use tracked overnight services from DPD for national and international deliveries.
