Learn More About CBD & CBD Products With Our CBD FAQs
1. Will taking CBD help with my illness?
Unfortunately, we are not able to give medical advice as our CBD products are sold as food supplements to help support and maintain a healthy body and mind and it’s always important to do your own thorough research-depending on what you are using CBD for, before trying it out, There is lots of reading material on the internet just type CBD for then your problem and you can start researching from there.
With that said, you do not have to be ‘ill’ to use CBD it is for everyone no matter how healthy you may be. It provides a source of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids like Omega-3, protein and it’s organically grown too.
Regardless of your age, CBD has dozens of wellness benefits. Many of us realise the important of “balance” in our daily lives. Balancing work and play is a critical part of our physical and mental health. Using CBD as a daily supplement is a great way to support your bodies Endocannabinoid system and keep it in balance so why not use it as a preventative!
2. Will I get high/stoned from taking CBD?
The simple answer is NO as none of our products contain THC which is the well known cannabinoid that produces the high.
CBD is simply a non-intoxicating component which has enormous potential. Your state of mind etc. will not change if you take CBD at all. Although it can make changes in the body- this isn’t one of them.
The way we extract CBD allows us to pull all of the natural and beneficial nutrients out of the cannabis plant without getting anything nasty in there as well. Not only are you NOT getting high, but you are getting a product from us that’s natural and safe.
3. Is it legal?
CBD is legal, because hemp is legal in the UK. Hemp is a plant that is safe, natural, and non-toxic. It can be used for almost anything. There need not to be any grey areas when it comes to CBD.
When it comes to cannabis, however, it is still illegal to use it or possess it. Maybe this is why people tend to get confused. Cannabidiol (CBD) though, is not considered a controlled substance in the UK. It is therefore 100% legal and can be freely distributed in the UK without restrictions.
If you want to use CBD products it is TOTALLY legal to do so.
4. Will I fail a drugs test?
No as drug tests are looking for traces of THC which is the psychoactive cannabinoid that is illegal in the UK and our products contain less than 0.2% THC or zero and we stringently test our products and supply on request 3rd party certificates of analysis that show what is exactly in our products.
5. Is it addictive?
Just because the cannabis plant can be known for recreational use that does not mean that it automatically makes it addictive. It is true however that you can become addicted to cannabis but what about CBD, which is made from the other cannabis plant which is hemp.
CBD is categorically not addictive, so let your worries fade away!
A report last year by the World Health Organization declared that CBD is non-addictive, writing, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential” and that “CBD is well-tolerated and safe for human consumption.”
CBD is not addictive as it contains no/very little THC. THC is the ingredient that causes cannabis to be addictive in some people.
6. Can I take CBD with other meds?
With taking anything new we would always suggest speaking with a medical professional, CBD can interact with some medicines but only at very high levels so it is on the whole very safe to take and we find lots of our customers actually reduce the amount of prescription drugs they take especially pain killers.
7. Can children take CBD?
Since CBD cannabinoids naturally occur in the body they therefore naturally work with the endocannabinoid system to control communication between cells and mediate body function. This means CBD is perfectly safe for children.
CBD is non-psychoactive so your child will categorically not get high from using it. CBD Guru products are oil extracted and prove to have no negative effects at all. In fact, many people report amazing improvements to their general health both mentally and physically after using.
Without children, CBD might never have received as much investigation and study as it has. By providing such a unique nutritional content, CBD hemp oil earns a place among other favourite daily vitamins and supplements to give to your family each day.
8. How much do I need daily?
Each person’s endocannabinoid system works differently and reacts differently with each person body. There is no straight, solid scientific information that states how much CBD you should be taking at any one time, always start off with a small dose and work your way up.
Height and weight play a part as well as the quality of the CBD oil. If you are bigger or taller than the average person you may need more and visa versa. Also, if you have smoked cannabis in the past you may feel like you need more.
Either way we advise you do not go over the daily dosage recommendation of 200mg.
9. How can I take CBD without having to taste the oil?
It’s available in many forms, and all the different means of consumption, make CBD a very versatile product.
The best methods will depend on the person but always remember to start with the recommended serving size, then increase from there.
Here at CBD Guru we have a method of ingestion to suit everyone. The sublingual route of taking CBD is probably the same as the oral route (capsules) with regards to easiness, simplicity, and comfort.
While lots of cbd oils on the market have a bad taste our products are extremely refined and we do not include plant matter instead we mix ours with mct oil which is much more pleasant tasting.
10. Is CBD suitable for pets?
CBD is perfectly safe for animals and we have a lot of customers who specifically buy for their pets. The truth is the same supplements you take can also be given to your pets. We would just recommend adding the drops of hemp oil to your pet’s food. A product we would recommend is our 250mg CBD Oil.
