Useful CBD Information (FAQs)
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in the flowers of the hemp plant. CBD was once over-shadowed by THC (the compound in cannabis sativa that causes a buzz) but in the last five years there has been a dramatic increase in scientific research into CBD. Much scientific research is currently being undertaken, all around the world, into CBD and the other cannabinoids, and in the next five years we will likely see an exponential rise in the numbers of users of these non-intoxicating and fascinating substances.
Our Cannabinoid Lab Results.
All The Relevant Information.
We believe you have the right to know exactly what you are buying. You should be confident that you are purchasing a product with the advertised amount of CBD.
You also need to know you are buying a legal product, without an illegal quantity of THC (the intoxicating compound in cannabis). In other words: lab results are totally essential.
TINCTURES & SPRAYS
We only use natural flavourings in our flavoured drops blended with MCT oil and broad spectrum cannabis extracts. Flavoured drops have been hugely popular for those who may find the taste of natural CBD unfavourable.
What is CBD?
Grown on farms around Eastern Europe that do not use pesticides, artificial fertilisers or harmful chemicals during cultivation or extraction. Available in 300mg, 500mg and 800mg per 20ml bottle.
Why MCT oil? Cannabinoids are fat soluble, MCT oil is a fat, therefore great to use as a carrier oil. MCT oil can pass through the bodies lymphatic system without needing to be broken down. The lymphatic system is a system of thin tubes and lymph nodes that run throughout the body. These tubes are called lymph vessels or lymphatic vessels. The lymph system is an important part of our immune system. It plays a role in fighting bacteria and other infections.
Is CBD Oil Legal in the UK?
It is entirely legal to buy and take CBD supplements in the UK.
How Strong Are Your Products and What Percent Are They?
Prime CBD do not express the strength of our products as a percentage on our bottles. Instead we tell you exactly how many milligrams or MG’s there are within your bottle. We believe percentages can be very misleading unless you know exactly how to calculate a % based on the original compounds added to a product. As an example for you, our 300MG CBD in a 20ML bottle would give you a CBD % of 1.5%.
Will CBD show up if I was to take a drug test?
CBD is a legal ingredient and is therefore not tested for in drug tests used to detect illegal drugs. As long as you take a pharmaceutical grade CBD product, which has been independently tested to ensure no significant content of psychoactive THC, then CBD will not show up in a drug test.
All of our products are sold as food supplements and not intended to diagnose, cure, prevent or treat disease. Always consult your health professional before taking any food supplements. All of our CBD E-Liquid products contain zero nicotine. All products sold contain less than 0.2% THC
How long does it take for CBD Oil to work?
The speed at which CBD works will depend on the delivery method you choose for your intake of CBD oil. Capsules typically have a slower release, while oral sprays are absorbed more quickly. Both our capsules and our sprays are blended with either olive oil or MCT’s (Coconut oil) to aid the absorption rate.
How long does CBD stay in your system?
Health experts say, ‘The effects of CBD last for around 3 to 5 hours. After this, the dose will have fallen below levels that produce noticeable benefits, although it will take 1 to 2 days for all the CBD to disappear from the body. For optimal results, you should take CBD at regular intervals throughout the day.
Can CBD Oil cure any conditions or illnesses?
We produce CBD oil that is sold as a dietary supplement, so we’re not making any medical claims. However we do encourage you to research this topic yourself, as there are trustworthy websites where you’ll find studies on the effects and benefits of cannabidiol in various conditions. We may refer to such studies here, but only to inform you about them. Our CBD products are not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease although it is quite possible those suffering from any one or more of a variety of ailments could see benefit from taking CBD.

Is it safe to travel with CBD Oil?
While CBD is legal throughout the European Union we still recommend caution when travelling with it. It is a cannabis product, after all, and there is a small chance airport staff may confuse it for illegal cannabis products and seize it. Ultimately it is your decision if you choose to travel with CBD products – and we have never heard of a customer getting in trouble for doing so – but you should bear in mind that probably not everyone who works in an airport will be aware of the legality of CBD, but everyone will know the illegality of cannabis in general. When travelling outside of Europe we strongly recommend not travelling with CBD.
