Frequently Asked Questions

CBD [Cannabidiol] is one of the 104 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil like hemp seed oil. CBD is growing in popularity in the health and wellness world, with some scientific studies confirming that it may help treat a variety of common ailments like chronic pain, trouble sleeping and anxiety
The human body contains a system called the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in regulating a variety of functions including sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. The body produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.
If you are new to CBD it is advisable to start with a low dose and build up gradually. There are clear daily dosage guidelines on all energizeCBD packs to help you.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than 104 compounds, or cannabinoids, found in the Cannabis sativa plant. In the UK, the source plant cannot contain more than 0.2% THC and because of this, CBD is non-psychoactive. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), like CBD, is a cannabinoid but it is a psychoactive compound. Unlike THC, an addiction to CBD is impossible.

The entourage effect happens when the many components within the cannabis plant interact with the human body to produce a stronger influence than any one of those components alone. For example, the cannabis plant contains terpenes, which have a known anti-inflammatory benefit as well as other cannabinoid compounds that soothe pain.
The effects of CBD last for 3-5 hours.

Glossary– Other Cannabinoids

CBC (Cannabichromene) was discovered over 50 years ago. CBC is thought to bind particularly well to receptors in the body that are linked to pain perception. CBC works with other cannabinoids to produce the entourage effect.
CBG (Cannabigerol) is thought to have anti-inflammatory properties and anti-bacterial effects. CBG works with other cannabinoids to produce the entourage effect.
CBN (Cannabinol). Studies on this cannabinoid have found that it may have an anti-bacterial effect. CBN works with other cannabinoids to produce the entourage effect.

Terpenes and other ingredients

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in the spice turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effect and is a very strong antioxidant.
Myrcene is the most prevalent terpene found in cannabis and is great at improving the absorption speed of cannabinoids. Myrcene is recognisable by its musky, herbal smell. It can be found in mangoes, citrus fruits, lemongrass, thyme, and hops.
Beta-caryophyllene is a terpene that is thought to selectively target the CB2 receptor in our endocannabinoid system. It therefore plays the role of a cannabinoid. Caryophyllene is gastro-protective and has been described as 'a dietary cannabinoid'. Beta-caryophyllene is prevalent in leafy green vegetables, which is one of the reasons that they are so good for us.
Linalool is a terpene which naturally occurs in many plants such as lavender and geranium and most citrus oils such as mandarin, lemon and bergamot. Linalool has anaesthetic and anti-inflammatory properties which makes it a great sleep aid for insomniacs, and an alternative treatment for stress and anxiety.
Pinene is one of the most researched terpenes to date, and is responsible for the memorable scent of pine and fir trees. Other plants with high pinene levels include rosemary, basil and parsley. As well as smelling and tasting delicious, Pinene also has big medical potential. Pinene helps to open airways in the respiratory system, making it beneficial for sufferers of asthma. It is also effective at protecting the lungs against certain viral infections, such as bronchitis. Pinene has an anti-inflammatory effect on humans.
Limonene is the second most abundant terpene found in most cannabis strains. As its name suggests, Limonene provides a citrus like scent and flavour. Limonene increases serotonin levels, reduces stress, and can promote a general uplift in mood. Research also shows that Limonene has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. It is also used in weight reduction programmes and the treatment of ulcers and acid reflux.
