Is Cannabidiol or CBD safe?
Is Cannabidiol or CBD safe? That’s a question you should be asking yourself, before you decide on which product you should purchase from any CBD supplier. Well the short answer is yes, Cannabidiol or CBD is safe for humans!
The World Health Organisation (WHO), the body directing international health issues with the UN, states that CBD exhibits no signs of dependency or abuse and recognises it as being safe, non-toxic, with very few side effects: “To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD”.
What should I know before making my first purchase of CBD (Cannabidiol)?
The biggest thing to look out for when buying CBD products is that most are classed as food supplements and therefore are not subject to the same regulations as the medical industry. This means that with a growing range of brands and products available for sale online in the UK what actually goes into products might differ from the manufacturers’ claims – Enjoy CBD screens every product we stock to ensure it is of the highest quality 100% organic CBD (Cannabidiol) so you don’t have to, and we do supply as much information as possible in order for you to make an informed decision when purchasing CBD from us.
Most CBD products are made from hemp extract oil as opposed to hemp seed oil which is actually a different thing completely. Hemp seed oil, sometimes called hemp oil, is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant only with no phytocannabinoids. The oil is very rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids so it can do wonders for your skin but it doesn’t necessarily have the same benefits as CBD oil. Hemp extract oils that are the basis of CBD products are made from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant but have all the beneficial phytocannabinoids.
Is Cannabidiol or CBD safe? Does full spectrum CBD get you high?
THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD are two main compounds found in the cannabis plant. THC is the compound which makes you high and is more associated with the Cannabis Indica strain (Marijuana).
CBD, the other main compound found in the Cannabis Sativa hemp plant, is totally non-psychoactive and is one of the most exciting and promising compounds currently undergoing rigorous medical and scientific research as to its effectiveness in helping to treat everyday ailments such as chronic pain, sleep deprivation and anxiety. CBD (Cannabidiol) is known for helping to promote relaxation and contains the healing powers of Mother Nature for everyday stresses and strains.
Always check out the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) content before buying any CBD product to ensure your purchase conforms to UK laws.
As CBD is sold in the UK as a food supplement and comes under the Novel Foods Regulations, the THC content has to be zero or negligible at no more than 0.2.
All of the products sold online in the UK by Enjoy CBD have the THC element of the product removed during the manufacturing process.
Is Cannabidiol or CBD safe and what other ingredients should you look for in quality CBD?
Always read the list of ingredients when comparing CBD products because some CBD products have PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerin) added which is not necessarily what you are looking for.

Also our CBD products contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes (whole plant extract) so you can be sure you are purchasing a product that is full of all of the therapeutic benefits that the hemp plant Cannabis Sativa has to offer.
