The short answer:
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring compound found in hemp and cannabis, also known as a cannabinoid. It’s the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the plant and is thought to have a wealth of benefits. We sell CBD as a food supplement, so we don’t make any medicinal claims, but we encourage you to do your own research using reputable websites.
The long answer:
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid and one of the two most plentiful in the Cannabis plant. The other is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol - commonly known as THC.
THC is what gives cannabis its psychoactive effects - i.e. THC is what causes smokers of cannabis to get “high”. CBD, on the other hand, does not affect users in the same way - it does not have any psychoactive properties, and it’s thought that it offers a wealth of benefits.
Different strains of the cannabis plant offer different concentrations of CBD and THC. Hemp - which is part of the cannabis plant, defined as the stalks, stems and seeds - is selectively bred for its strong leaves and stalks (rather than the flowers, where the most THC is found) and contains substantial amounts of CBD and very small amounts of THC.
Marijuana plants contain over 80 other cannabinoids, however they’re found in such small concentrations in comparison to CBD and THC that not much research has been carried out around them.
Research surrounding the benefits of CBD is still in its infancy, but more and more well-respected establishments are beginning to conduct in-depth scientific studies.
The short answer:
We sell CBD as a food supplement, because we believe that it has many benefits. While we don’t make any medical claims surrounding our products, we believe that adding CBD to your daily routine promotes general well being by interacting with your endocannabinoid system.
This really comes down to personal preference, as well as the reasons why you want to try CBD. Here are the options:
1. TincturesCBD Tinctures come in dropper bottles and can be taken through a dropper directly into the mouth or mixed into food or drink. Our Tinctures are created using CBD hemp oil and diluted with MCT / coconut oil. All ingredients are top-quality and organic and come in different concentrations; 250mg, 500mg, 1000mg, 1500mg and 3600mg.
2. CapsulesCapsules are a very effective way to take CBD. They’re designed only to open once they’re in your gut, where they’re absorbed into the bloodstream - none of the potency is lost. Our CBD Gel Capsules come in 10mg and 25mg and contain other phytocannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, CBC, and over 40 naturally-present terpenes.
3. GummiesIf you prefer the idea of edibles, gummies are a good way to get CBD into your system. Our CBD-infused gummies are infused with CBD and are not dipped or coated, so none of the nutrients are lost before they reach your gut.
Hemp is considered very safe, so there shouldn’t be any significant side effects, particularly in small doses. However, as with any food supplement or dietary change, it depends on how your body adapts to it. If you have any questions concerning your health, please consult your doctor.
The short answer:No.
The more detailed answer:
CBD is non-psychoactive, so you won’t get high from cannabidiol-rich products. On the other hand, THC is a strong psychoactive substance, and will make you feel stoned.
Both CBD and THC occur naturally in hemp and cannabis, in higher or lower concentrations depending on the strain and the part of the plant. Hemp contains just tiny traces of THC, while recreational cannabis can contain anything from 2.5% up to a whopping 80% of THC. CBD oil has significant amounts of CBD and little or no THC.
THC interacts directly with the body’s cannabinoid receptors, and due to its chemical similarities to one of the body’s natural endocannabinoids, anandamide (also known as the Bliss Molecule) - THC works directly with the same receptors, and results in producing a “high”.
CBD works slightly differently, and affects the endocannabinoid system both by directly suppressing the receptors that cause a high, and indirectly by activating other receptors around the body, including serotonin, vanilloid and adenosine receptors, thus playing a role in many different functions around the body without any psychoactive effects.
Our products are thoroughly lab tested to ensure that any trace amounts of THC are completely removed.
The short answer:Yes
The more detailed answer:
Generally, hemp is considered very safe. However, some suppliers of CBD oil do not take the care and precautions that we do at Truth to ensure that the product is of the highest quality.
Our hemp is sourced from the best growers in Colorado, USA, and our products are thoroughly lab tested so that we can guarantee that our CBD oil is pure, full of all the beneficial phytocannabinoids, minerals, fatty acids and vitamins you want and without any chemicals, pesticides or heavy metals that you don’t.
We are members of the UK Cannabis Trades Association, an organisation which represents the hemp and cannabis industry in the UK and which promotes good practice to ensure consumers receive the highest quality products. We adhere to their Association Standards and fully support their work to ensure quality, transparency and good practice within the industry.Will I fail a drugs test if I take CBD?
Drug tests are geared towards identifying THC, not CBD or another cannabinoid. If you take a CBD product which contains a trace amount of THC, that THC could register on a drug test.
If you’re concerned about this, make sure you only buy brands which guarantee 0% THC. All Truth Naturals products are thoroughly lab tested to ensure that any trace amounts of THC are completely removed.
CBD sold for medicinal purposes is required to be licensed under UK law. We encourage you to do your own research using reputable websites like PubMed, where you’ll find studies on the effects and benefits of cannabidiol for various conditions.
More and more research is being undertaken by well-respected scientific establishments to find out more about the benefits of CBD for specific medical conditions, and we sometimes refer to studies on our website, but only to inform you of them. Our CBD products are not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
