Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Will CBD get me high?

No. CBD is non-psychoactive. It has no mind-altering properties and instead promotes regulation and balance within the body.


What are cannabinoids? 

These are compounds. CBD, CBA, CBG and THC are all cannabinoids. Scientists estimate there to be 113 cannabinoids from the cannabis family of plants, each with their own unique benefits.


What’s the difference between broad spectrum and isolate? 

CBD isolate is pure CBD, usually at a 99% purity in a crystallised form. Broad spectrum is a blend of cannabinoids, usually high in CBD content, but with several other cannabinoids working together in what scientists have called, ’The Entourage Effect.’


Will there be a smell of cannabis from using CBD products?

Not always, unless that’s something you personally desire. That smell we’ve all encountered whilst sitting in traffic or walking down the street comes from terpenes which are essential oils found in green, leafy plants. Even Christmas trees let off terpenes! Our products maintain a low terpene profile, so there is no lingering smell.


What happens if I take too much CBD? 

Scientists have not found any adverse side effects of consuming over the suggested amounts advised on CBD products. However, if you feel you have taken too much, find a nice, quiet space to rest. Do not attempt to drive or operate machinery until the effects have passed. If you can, this would be a great time for a bubble bath or a nap.


Could CBD interact with my prescription medication? 

Some research suggests high doses of CBD may interact with some medications which are usually only available on prescription. We recommend you speak to your doctor about this.


Will CBD show up on a drug test?

Not unless the test specifically tests for CBD. This is unlikely as CBD is not a controlled substance in the UK, or throughout most EU and westernised countries. If you are concerned about the CBD product you are taking and its THC content, ask the manufacturer to provide you with a certificate of analysis, so you can see how much THC is in that product. At CUBID CBD, all of our products are THC-free for your peace of mind.


What is THC? 

THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol. This is another compound from the cannabis family of plants which we refer to as a cannabinoid. CBD products in the UK, Ireland and across the EU CBD products on sale in the UK cannot exceed 1mg of THC per finished product.


Can I take CBD whilst travelling abroad?

Throughout the EU, you should be fine to take your favourite CBD product with you on your travels, provided that it complies with the laws on THC at your destination. EU member states operate their policy on CBD the same way we do in the UK. Any CBD products must not be derived from a hemp plant exceeding a limit of 0.2% THC content.


What is the difference between hemp and marijuana? 

There are distinct strains of the cannabis plant family, each possessing different properties, uses and benefits. Through generations of selective cultivation, different strains of Cannabis were developed, where specific properties were selected such as those grown to be more suitable in different environments. Industrial hemp, which is a variety of Cannabis sativa, is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Differing from the stains of Cannabis sativa grown for drug purposes, hemp contains very low quantities of the psychoactive component Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).


Where does CBD come from? 

It comes from a genus of plants called cannabis and a species called sativa, of which there are three subspecies: Indica, Rederalis and Sativa.


Is CBD oil cannabis oil? 

CBD can be cannabis oil, however the term cannabis oil is widely misused. Medicinal cannabis oil is a whole plant hemp oil rich in CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids which is currently only legally available in the UK via a specialist prescription. CBD on the other hand is widely available.


Do CBD products have an expiry date? 

Yes. This is usually 12 months from manufacturing.
