While CBD has been around for thousands of years, it is still a relatively new compound in the eyes of modern society. If you’re not fully involved with CBD just yet, there may be a few questions you’ve been wanting to ask. To help you understand the wonderful world of CBD, here are some frequently asked questions answered! What is CBD?CBD is a chemical compound found within the cannabis plant (otherwise known as hemp). Unlike THC, another popular compound found in the cannabis plant, CBD does not contain any psychoactive effects. In fact, many people use CBD for its potential medical benefits, including improved mental wellbeing and pain relief. Here at HighKind, we use advanced distillation methods and full-spectrum techniques in order to keep all the natural goodness when extracting CBD. Does CBD help anxiety?While more research needs to be done, plenty of studies have suggested that CBD can play a role in reducing the effects of anxiety. For instance, this study from 2011 researched the effect of CBD on people with SAD (social anxiety disorder). Scientists found that those given 400 milligrams (mg) of CBD saw their overall anxiety levels reduced. Ultimately, the soothing, calming terpenes found in CBD could alleviate some of the anxiety you may be feeling on a daily basis. Is CBD legal in the UK?Yes – unlike THC, CBD is legal in the UK. As with all CBD products, our extracts only contain trace levels of THC, which means they are entirely legal in the UK, as well as other countries in Europe. We can guarantee that all HighKind products will contain no more than 1mg of THC, alongside the Home Office’s guidelines. Does CBD get you high?No – because CBD contains next to no THC, CBD products never get you high. This is because THC is the active psychoactive compound in cannabis, which can cause anxiety and general mental discomfort. In contrast, CBD is not psychoactive but is used by many to help treat anxiety or changes of mood. How do you take CBD oil?There are many ways to consume CBD, including CBD Vaping and Concentrates. For those looking for an easy, simple way to step foot into the CBD world, CBD Vaping may be your best bet. If you’re keen to take things to the next level, Concentrates, such as Diamonds and Sauce, Crumble and Crystal, could be perfect for you. Whichever direction you choose, both these forms of consuming CBD have a wide range of flavour profiles that will suit all tastes. Interested in taking your first steps into the world of CBD?
