Hempful CBD Oil – FAQ’S
Hempful CBD is one of our best selling products and with it comes many questions and enquiries. Here is a breakdown of the most frequently asked questions. Hopefully you will find this helpful.
CBD, or to give it its full title, Cannabidiol, is one of the most prevalent compounds found in
the plant Cannabis Sativa. It is non-psychoactive, completely legal and a major health-boosting
ingredient. Full spectrum CBD oil is the most effective and most beneficial
Hempful CBD oils are regulated and certified by our local Food Authorities, FSA and FSAI, to
ensure our products are safe for consumption and meet the necessary European Food Safety
criteria for foods placed on the market. Additionally, all our products also comply with the
safety criteria set out for driving and sports performance. There are no negative side effects to
taking CBD oil. In Fact, The WHO – The World Health Organisation – conducted a study into
CBD oil in their findings they announced the incredible safety profile of CBD. There are no
dangerous side effects / There is no risk of overdose, even over extended periods of time in
extremely high doses (1500mg per day) / And there is no risk of abuse. CBD is not addictive.
The most effective way to take CBD is sublingual, under your tongue. By ingesting CBD under
your tongue, you maximize the absorption into your bloodstream. You should hold the CBD
under your tongue for 90-120 seconds before swallowing for the best results.
Everyone is unique. Doctors who have studied and worked extensively with the Endo-canna-
biniod system recommend we should all be taking 10-20mg per day. This is a good guide for most but others who may be suffering from Clinical Endo-cannabiniod Deficiency Syndrome
may require a stronger daily dose to restore and maintain a natural balance. It is recommended
you start with a low dosage and gradually build up the number of mg per day you take, until
you get a desired effect.
We recommend spreading the dose throughout your day. Our guidance states 2 sprays, 3
times a day – 6 sprays. This comes from many years experience but again everyone is unique.
Some take all 6 sprays before bed and fell the benefits the next day. Others take it all in the
morning and set o about their day. Many carry it with them and use it when required. What
is most important is that you calculate how many milligrams you are taking each day to get
the effect you are looking for. We encourage you to experiment with the CBD oil and find what
works best for you.
Hempful CBD products are naturally occurring health supplements. Any medical queries
should be discussed with your doctor.
As there is little to no clinical evidence to the eects of CBD on the fetus, there is no definitive
answer to this question. Many Mothers have to make the choice themselves weighing up the
potential benefits with the potential risks.
Herxing is a short term reaction as the body detoxifies. This is common when you start taking
CBD and it is often referred to as the die off effect. It is quite common to experience flu-like
symptoms which can include headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, a sore throat,
sweating, chills or nausea. If it occurs, it generally lasts a few days but can last for a week or
more. Herxing is actually helpful to your system as it is creating a detoxifying effect. Starting
with a small dose of CBD and slowly increasing can prevent this from occurring.
CBD oil is not a controlled substance, nor does it have any psychoactive eect at all. You can
safely go about your normal working and social days confident in the knowledge your health is
in good hands.
The million dollar question!! In short, Hempful CBD is 100% active.
10 – 20mg a day
It has been generally agreed that we should all be taking between 10 and 20mg a day of
Cannabidiol to supplement our Endocannabiniod System. ‘Milligrams’ is the important
factor here. Cannabidiol itself does not have a strength. We measure it in milligrams.
So understanding the product you are buying is very important to determine your CBD
intake. Hempful CBD oils give you a precise dose of active Cannabidiol per Spray, compli-
mented by the full spectrum of Cannabiniods and Terpenes as
