Does Hemp Oil contain CBD?

Hemp seeds

Hemp oil is different from CBD oil. The production of CBD oil uses the stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant, which contain a higher concentration of CBD, another potentially beneficial compound in the plant. Hemp seed oil comes from the small seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant and contains no CBD.

While CBD is a new ingredient to many consumers, hempseed oil has been around for decades. It’s sold at health food stores and is used in both cooking and skincare. As stated hempseed oil uses only the oil which is extracted from the seeds and not the plant and therefore it has no CBD.

CBD oil is extracted from the trichomes of the leaves. Hemp oil is extracted from the hemp seeds, which is why it’s often called “hemp seed oil” and has no CBD. Hemp oil is purely used for cosmetic purposes and even cooking!

CBD Cream Dosage

cbd cream image

CBD Cream Dosage

Since topical CBD is so localized and specific, you don’t really need to worry about the dose too much. Nevertheless, it can still be handy to figure out how much you need to use. So it is important to understand CBD Cream dosage.

Use CBD cream twice to three times a day without missing a day. It is important to keep using it as CBD absorbs in to the body and becomes more effective over time.

Usage will depend on your condition but we suggest a dosage of three times a day is effective. Please note that using it only once a day would not give full benefit and twice to three times a day is ideal.

You don’t need to cover all areas of your body. Find out where your problem spots are and apply the cream there.

With our new pump action bottles you know exactly how much CBD you are taking. For example if you take a look at our best selling 500mg cream you get 7.8mg of CBD per pump.

When applying the CBD cream, remember to wash your hands and the area you are applying it to before using. And wash your hands after, too – you don’t want to accidentally get cream in your eye!

The cream can take up to 30 minutes to take effect by the time it is absorbed through the skin.

You can apply CBD Cream to any part of your body such as the below:

  • Elbows, knees, and other joints
  • Soles of the feet and heels
  • Face, especially the temples and around the nose
  • Neck and shoulders
  • Back

How to use CBD Cream

how can CBD help arthritus

How to use CBD Cream

Cannabis extracts have been used topically to relieve pain and treat skin rashes in India and Latin America for hundreds of years.

CBD Creams also known as topicals have a light consistency and can be easily rubbed into the skin. They are often more luxurious and moisturizing than salves, for example, but still provide the body with a nice hit of CBD.

It is simple how to use CBD Cream. You can apply the cream directly to any sore areas, such as the knees or feet and the advantage is that the cream is hyper-focused in this area. It’s the exact same process as with any regular facial and bodily cream. Simply rub a little cream on the target area in a gentle motion ensuring all the cream is absorbed.

The skin is the front line barrier where it absorbs and delivers nutrients from anything that is applied to it such as a cream or oil.  So, if you are using a CBD product, that’s where absorption happens for the CBD!

There are no known side effects to worry about with topical infused with hemp-derived CBD, although you should always check with a doctor when trying anything new.

This method of application doesn’t require any special tools or knowledge. Simply figure out the dosage you want then apply that amount of CBD cream to your skin.

You can apply CBD Cream to any area of the body:

  • Elbows, knees, and other joints
  • Soles of the feet and heels
  • Face, especially the temples and around the nose
  • Neck and shoulders
  • Back

The cream can take up to 30 minutes to take effect by the time it is absorbed through the skin.

Use CBD cream up to three times a day and use it every day without missing a day. It is important to keep using it as CBD absorbs in to the body and becomes more effective over time. Usage will depend on your condition but we suggest a dosage of three times a day is effective.

Is CBD Oil legal in UK?

Is CBD Oil legal in UK?

The Home Office says that CBD contain a maximum THC content of 0.01% THC which is virtually untraceable. It’s the THC that’s present in the cannabis plant that gets you high. Although taken from the same plant, CBD oil should have a minimal, if any, amount of THC in it in order to be legal in the UK. So ‘Is CBD Oil legal in UK?’ it certainly is!

CBD is legal in the UK, however the CBD oil UK law states that the product has to meet certain criteria to be lawfully available for human consumption. CBD oil is extracted from hemp plants and, as it is a legal cannabinoid, can be sold in the UK as a novelty food.

The oil has been thought to have some medicinal properties but there have not been conclusive scientific studies on this.

So when your planning on purchasing any CBD such as CBD Creams you need to be sure you are sourcing them from a trusted website such as ourselves. We specialise in the finest CBD Creams in the UK which are lab tested. CBD for personal usage

In 2016 the MHRA, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) stated that CBD supplements, if they are shows or advertised in any way for these medical reasons they need to be licensed.

Licences for CBD oil as a medicine have not been granted in the UK but the supplements can still be sold as a Novel Food as long as claims are not made about their medical benefits.

What is a Novel Food?

A novel food is defined as any food that had not been consumed regularly by humans in the EU before 15 May 1997. Although humans have consumed hemp for much longer, hemp-derived CBD is a relatively new product.

Holland and Barrett sells some CBD oils as food supplements but do not advertise them for any health issues.

The oil that has been in the news recently due to its use by those with epilepsy is cannabis oil, which has a higher THC content, and so, unlike CBD oil, is not usually allowed in the UK.

As a result of the CBD explosion a few years ago there are now thousands of companies in the UK who sell CBD ranging from CBD Creams to Oils.  Many People use CBD Cream for example and use it for a wide range of purposes by applying it to their joints and muscles.

  • CBD flowers: The sale of ‘CBD Flowers’ and buds is prohibited even if THC is below 0.01% and from EU approved origin. This is because the general public or the government would find it difficult to tell the difference between the flowers at 0.01% or a higher THC content as it looks exactly the same.  You would only tell the difference if you smoked it. This would open up a door of opportunities to people selling marijuana as we know it.

How long does it take for CBD to work?

How long does it take for CBD to work?

The most common method for using CBD consumption involves administering drops of oil directly into the mouth. This is the fastest, easiest and more convenient way to reap the potential benefits it. But quickly swallowing the oil also prevents CBD from immediately entering the bloodstream, sending it instead through the digestive tract and eventually on to the liver, where it is broken down before finally reaching the bloodstream.

Studies show that when CBD compounds are metabolized by the liver, it undergoes what is called the “first pass effect,” where enzymes in the liver reduce CBD concentration before the remainder is finally sent to the bloodstream to be circulated throughout the body.

For ingestion of CBD edibles, the same situation applies. For example,  if you are taking CBD candy or adding a few drops of CBD oil into your favorite recipe. It will ultimately go through the same lengthy process and reduce the total CBD concentration found in your blood stream. With ingestion, it could be one to two hours before the effects of CBD finally set in.
