    What is CBD ?


    What is CBD?

    You must have heard about the new trend on the market: CBD! You might be wondering what those initials actually stand for and why is it becoming so popular so quickly, so we decided to provide you with basic explanations:


    Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the main compounds in the cannabis plant. It is the second most studied component after the very famous psychoactive THC.

    Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is completely non-psychoactive and 100% legal. CBD natural concentration in hemp plant is usually around 1 to 3%.

    By selecting some special seeds, European suppliers now manage to have higher CBD concentrations.

    CBD is all relaxation without intoxication.

    What are studies saying?

    Recent studies have shown that CBD can have a positive effect on:

    • Pain modulation (it is known to relief pain).
    • Sleep-wake cycle (people with sleeping disorder/insomnia testify that it helps them rest and have a good night’s sleep).
    • Stress management (CBD users testify that it helps them manage stressful moments).

    There are several academic research centres studying it at the moment and its effectiveness with arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy and even anti-cancer properties.

    Where to find CBD?

    CBD can be found in a wide range of products like e-liquid to be vaped, oil drops for oral use, creams, tinctures and even edibles. 

    All those products are available in our brick and mortar stores In London.

    You will be able to find them in different concentration levels, from which the most common are: 100mg (low), 300mg (medium), 500mg (high) or even 1000mg (very high).
