REGULARLY ASKED

How do I take my RE Holistic oral drops?

We advise that you start with the recommended daily dosage of 3 drops, 3 times per day. Shake the bottle before use and place the drops under the tongue for 1-2 minutes before swallowing. The CBD needs time to build up and work with internal endocannabinoid receptors for maximum effect. Most individuals note the benefits after a few days. Everybody is different, so depending on body type, some may require slightly more drops until the effects are felt. According to our clients, the most noticeable result is a feeling of calm together with better clarity of thought and no longer feeling overwhelmed by hectic daily routines. Regular use is recommended for best effect. 

What is CBD and how does it work?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of 113 cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis plants in addition to a host of flavonoids and terpenes. Together they make up hundreds of natural compounds found within the plant. Cannabinoids interact with our own individual endocannabinoid systems (ECS), binding with receptors present within our brains, nervous and immune systems. Research has shown that cannabinoids can affect our mood, memory, aches and pains and quality of sleep. 

Is CBD legal?

Yes. CBD Oil is not classed as a controlled substance and is legal in the UK as long as it contains less than 0.2% THC. 

Will CBD make me high?

No. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound, so you will not experience any feelings of being ‘high’.

Is CBD addictive?
No. A World Health Organisation report into CBD published in 2018, provided the following statement: “CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential”. The report went on to claim that naturally occurring CBD is safe and well-tolerated in humans.
What is the entourage effect?

Each individual compound of the cannabis plant has a unique therapeutic benefit. CBD is most effective when taken with other compounds found in the plant, combining and working in harmony to produce the entourage effect. This is the natural foundation of our full spectrum CBD oil.

What is cold-pressed cannabis oil?

Cold pressed cannabis oil offers the most natural method of extracting oil from the cannabis plant. In simple terms, the plant is juiced to create the CBD oil. It is also the most environmentally friendly due to the fact that no heat or chemicals are needed. Furthermore, no compounds are are lost during the process thus providing the best entourage effect in our full spectrum CBD oil.  Cold pressed cannabis oil is completely natural and not modified in any way. Therefore it is not classed as a novel food by the Food Standards Agency. 

Why is your CBD extract mixed with hemp seed oil?

CBD is hydrophobic which means that it does not mix with water. It is fat-soluble and comes in an oil format which can be better absorbed by the body when mixed with hemp seed oil. Combining the two provides the full benefit of both the plant and the seeds. As an added bonus, hemp seed oil is naturally rich in omega-3 and omega-6 plus essential vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium, vitamin C and B vitamins. How good is that?

Is CBD oil the same as medical cannabis?

No. Medical cannabis is only available via prescription from a health professional.
