CBD is short for cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound produced by the cannabis plant. CBD sold in the UK is derived from EU-approved industrial hemp cultivars that contain 0.2% THC or less. According to The Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001, the legal limit per closed container is 1mg of any controlled substance. This means that industrial hemp must undergo rigorous tests in order to make sure it doesn't exceed legal amounts of THC. By using multiple third-party independent lab tests, cultivators, sellers, and consumers get peace of mind knowing they are getting exactly what's on the label.
The FSA previously recommended that healthy adults shouldn't consume more than 200 mg of CBD each day. They have changed that, and now it is recommended that healthy adults consume no more than 70 mg of CBD in a 24-hour period unless otherwise directed by a medical professional. When you start out taking CBD, you want to start low and slow consuming small amounts over a period of time. A good recommendation or suggestion is to start with between 10 to 20 mg of CBD each day. Gradually increase the amount of CBD you intake until you achieve the desired results you're looking for.
When it comes to CBD, there are three types. 99% pure CBD isolate broad-spectrum CBD that contains all cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in cannabis with the exception of having no THC, and full-spectrum CBD, which contains everything, including very minimal amounts of THC. Remember to be mindful of what type of CBD product you are purchasing if you are looking to avoid THC or other cannabinoids.
There are many different types of CBD products available for purchase. CBD edibles offer a variety of tasty treats infused with CBD, such as cookies, chocolate, hard candy, brownies, and everybody's favourite, CBD gummies. There are CBD topical lotions, CBD creams, CBD salves, and CBD balms that you can apply to your skin. There are also CBD bath salts and CBD bath bombs that you can soak in. Quite possibly, one of the most popular CBD products on the market is CBD E liquid. CBD E liquid is available in a variety of tasty CBD vapes. Now that you have a good amount of knowledge about CBD let's discuss how to use some of the popular CBD vape pens.
