WHAT IS CBD OR CANNABIDIOL?
Cannabis contains over 110 Cannabidonoids - One of which is CBD, the second most prominent chemical found in the Cannabis family. Most CBD products are derived from Hemp (A type of Cannabis that has high concentrations of CBD with less that 0.2% THC). This allows to experience the therapeutic properties of Cannabis without any intoxication effects. For this reason, CBD/Hemp is legally sold and consumed around the UK & many other countries.
HOW IS IT MADE?
All products available at cannabidolpharm.com are made from Professionally cultivated Industrial Hemp. Once the Cannabis has reached maturity, the valuable parts of the plant are dried and processed. The Oils are then extracted from the plant material using non-toxic, environmentally friendly solvents. The Oil is then refined to remove any unwanted compounds such as Plant material, Fats & Chlorophyll. The pure extract is then Laboratory tested to measure Cannabinoid profiles & to ensure they are free from contaminants or impurities. This concentrate is then used to produce our selection of products. Visit our news and information page to learn more on this process.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It is understood that the effects of Cannabinoids stem from it's influence on our Endocannabinoid system - The largest Neurotransmitter network in the body responsible for keeping our physical and mental health in balance. In some circumstances, Cannabinoids such as CBD are used to modulate or control the function of this system. To learn more on how CBD works visit our article on the Endocannabinoid system.

WHAT IS 'FULL' & 'BROAD' SPECTRUM?
The phrases 'Full' & 'Broad spectrum' referrers to a product or extracts range of Cannabinoids (such as CBD,CBDV, CBC, CBN, CBC, CBG & THC). These types of products also tend to contain Terpenes, Flavanoids and Phenols found naturally in Cannabis Plants. The main difference between 'Broad' & 'Full Spectrum' CBD products is the presence of THC. Specific refining processes are used to remove the THC & preserve the other valuable compounds. Research suggests that using multiple Cannabinoids & Terpenes simultaneously increases the potency of a product - This synergistic effect is often referred to as the 'entourage effect'.
