What is CBD Oil?
CBD Oil comes from Industrial Hemp (Cannabis sativa L.), a strain of cannabis. This has been around for thousands of years. It was one of the world’s first cultivated crops, with many different uses.
CBD and THC
There are many strains of cannabis which contain varying levels and ratios of compounds, called cannabinoids. The two best known are Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These are also the most dominant cannabinoids within the plant.
Industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) is a strain that has high concentrations of CBD and low levels of THC – a cannabinoid that’s psychoactive. So with CBD Oil you can get all of the benefits of CBD – without the high that’s typically associated with THC.
Over the last 20 years, researchers have been extensively studying the health benefits associated with all of the compounds in cannabis and in particular CBD.
This has only started to emerge in recent years and with a better understanding of how CBD interacts with our ‘endocannabinoid system’. This contains group of receptors found in the body, in the brain and nervous system.
This has ignited a huge demand for CBD oil. An estimated 300,000 people used a CBD product in the UK alone last year.

CBD Oil UK Based Company
We are a UK health products company based in Manchester and have a range of CBD Oils within our catalogue.
From seed to finish…
All of our CBD oils are extracted from Industrial Hemp, grown in fertile soil on farms in Slovenia and Croatia. Firstly, we select the very best seeds, ensuring they have the right CBD percentage and ratio.
Our seeds are then grown without the use of any fertilisers or pesticides and the hemp grows quickly. We harvest our hemp crop by hand and allow it to dry naturally below 35°c.
When the hemp has dried. we extract the CBD oil using a gentle CO2 method. This pushes the CBD oil through at low temperatures, without the need for heat and more importantly, harmful solvents. It is the safest method, which preserves all flavonoids and terpenes and creates the highest quality oil possible.
Once we have the CBD oil we create our different strengths available, 300mg, 450mg, 500mg and 1000mg.
CBD Oil UK Based, Independently tested…
Finally, all of our CBD oils are independently tested by the best laboratories around the world. This ensures we are delivering on our promise to provide the best quality CBD oil possible.
All of the CBD oils are legal to take in the UK and we are a 2018 member of the Cannabis Trades Association.
