You asked, we answered... here are Natural Strains top 10 asked questions in 2022
What is CBD?
CBD is a cannabinoid, one of more than 100 different chemical compounds that are found in the cannabis plant. The most well-known compounds found in the cannabis plant are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
THC is a compound that has psychoactive effects, allowing for the ‘high’ that users will feel. THC is a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
As there are low levels of THC found in CBD you won’t get that high feeling when you ingest it, and it’s now possible to even get a prescription oil made from CBD.
Does CBD get you high?
The short answer is that CBD won’t get you high. Even though it comes from cannabis, CBD products that you buy from reputable retailers are made with little to no THC. THC is the psychoactive compound that results in a euphoric feeling when ingested.
Whilst CBD won’t get you high, it boasts a whole other range of benefits which has made it a popular choice for boosting wellness.
How much CBD should I use?
It is recommended to take 60mg to 80mg per day depending on your weight. If you start with 60mg per day and are not satisfied then simply increase it by 20mg per day. If you feel this is too strong then decrease it by 20mg per day until you reach the level which suits your bodies needs.
What is the difference between
broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD?
Full spectrum CBD contains all the cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant including trace amounts of THC. Broad spectrum CBD also contains all the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant however the only difference is it has had the THC completely removed.

Does CBD have side effects?
CBD and hemp are considered as being safe and will not produce side effects in most people, however if you are on prescribed medicine you should always check with your doctor before adding anything to your daily routine.
What is CBD Isolate?
Isolate CBD is the most basic, pure form of the chemical compound cannabidiol (otherwise known as CBD).
Cannabidiol is just one of over a hundred cannabinoids of the cannabis plant, but it is the most well known one and is used mostly commonly. Another well-known cannabinoid is THC, which is the psychoactive compound that gives you the feeling of being 'high'.
In CBD isolate, there are no other cannabinoids, terpenes or flavinoids. This is a difficult result to achieve because it requires several processes to separate the CBD from the other compounds in order to get pure cannabidiol.
With that being said, CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, which is produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids.
CBD Isolate is typically extracted from Hemp, due to its low to non-existent THC-content.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is extracted from the varieties of cannabis plants that have CBD occurring naturally in large amounts and THC in low amounts. To ensure a high concentration of CBD in the oil, a specialized process is used to extract the compound. The oil contains other compounds like terpenes, omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamins, and phytocannabinoids like cannabigerol, cannabichromene, cannabidivarin, and cannabinol.
What is a CBD Topical?
Topical are creams, foams, lotions and balms that have been infused with CBD. Many Topical medications are epicutaneous, meaning that they are applied directly to the skin. Topicals are a good choice for those looking to treat localised pain. As well as pain relief, many use Topicals for other reasons such as skin care, acne treatment and pain relief.
