Is CBD legal in the UK?

Will CBD 'get me high'?
No, CBD has no psychoactive properties, thus will not give you the feeling of being ‘high’
Is CBD safe?
Several studies, including one by the World Health Organisation, concluded that CBD is safe to consume. It also currently exhibits no abuse potential.
What is the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil?
The main difference is that hemp oil comes from pressing hemp seeds, and CBD can be extracted from both the stems and leaves. hemp oil contains little or no Cannabidiol (CBD) content, whereas CBD oil isolates the most beneficial compounds of the plant and provides them in concentrated form.
What are the benefits of CBD?
You may have read or heard about CBD being used by people for a variety of reasons. However, we are unfortunately unable to offer any medical advice regarding using CBD, as our products are brought to market as Food Supplements.
There have been many studies into the effects of CBD, however the conclusion on specific effects of supplementing with cannabidiol are still some time away.

How does CBD work?
CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been widely found in many parts of the human body, including the central nervous system and the intestinal tract.
Is CBD natural?
Yes, CBD is a naturally-occurring compound that comes directly from the cannabis plant. In our case, a fully EU-approved strain of Cannabis sativa L. or ‘Hemp’. It can be synthetically made, but this is rare and we ensure our CBD comes genuinely from the plant.
Will CBD help me with my illness?
All our products are sold as food supplements only to help promote everyday wellbeing. They are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
Does CBD interact with other food supplements or medications?
You should always consult with your doctor prior to taking any new supplements or medications to ensure there are no conflicting effects on your system with anything else you are already taking.
How much CBD should I take?
Firstly, everyone’s tolerance for CBD is different. If you are a new user of CBD we always suggest starting with the lowest dose and working your way up. Starting too high could have the opposite desired effect.
Simply spray under your tongue and hold for 1-2 minutes. This will allow for your blood vessels under the tongue to absorb as much CBD as possible before swallowing.
The recommended daily dose of CBD is 70mg. Advised by the Food Standards Agency (FSA). Do not substitute for a varied diet. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
How are you able to keep prices this low and still pledge profits to NHS Charities?
We will be giving back to charities that support our NHS. We are proud of this pledge and want to be clear and unambiguous about what we mean when we say “Profits to NHS Heroes” on our bottles.
In the simplest terms, when we say we will pledge 10% of profits, we mean that we will ringfence at least £1 out of every £10 of profits made from the sale of ACCESS CBD® products, after business overheads are deducted and pay that throughout the year to charities that support NHS workers, such as ‘NHS Charities Together’.
This is our way of providing people with a CBD supplement brand they can be proud of.
Truly ‘CBD for Everyone’.
Why is ACCESS CBD® at such a low price compared to other CBD brands?
As the CBD market begins to mature and CBD supplementation becomes mainstream, the cost of isolated cannabidiol as an ingredient has decreased rapidly. ACCESS CBD® is the first in a new generation of CBD Oils that no longer have to cost relatively high prices.
CBD is CBD, and our CBD Oils stand up to quality, taste and accuracy tests as well as other, more expensive CBD Oil products.
BRITISH CANNABIS® are now able to use our scale as the UK’s largest Seed-to-Shelf CBD supplement producer, to bring down the average cost of not only the core CBD ingredient, but of our packaging, flavours, oils and other business costs. These savings are very much being passed on to you – the customer.
