Navigating CBD isn't always easy, so here we answer some of the frequently asked questions
What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is an active compound found in the cannabis sativa plant. It's a naturally occurring substance and can impart a feeling of relaxation and calm.
Is CBD legal?
CBD is legal in its pure form (CBD Isolate) in the UK.
We only uses CBD isolate in our products. Other cannabinoids, including THC or CBN, are illegal.
All MOi + ME products have been tested independently by a third party lab to ensure you can trust our quality of pure CBD.
Does CBD make you 'high'?
It is not psychoactive so doesn’t make you feel ‘high’ Pure CBD doesn’t interact with the parts of your brain that cause euphoria, or disorientation. The part of the cannabis plant that can have those effects is known as THC
Is CBD addictive?
CBD does not have an addictive effect, as it is not psychoactive. In the UK, CBD is exclusively produced from the hemp plant — while it is of the same species as cannabis, it does not contain THC
What are the spectrum's of CBD?
There are three main types of cannabidiol (CBD). CBD isolate is the pure form of CBD, while full-spectrum CBD is an extract containing other compounds of the cannabis plant, such as terpenes and other cannabinoids. The third type is broad-spectrum CBD.
What is the difference between Isolate and full-spectrum?
The difference between CBD isolate and full-spectrum CBD relates to the contents of each form.
A full-spectrum CBD product contains multiple cannabis plant extracts, including essential oils, terpenes, and other cannabinoids, such as cannabinol.
Full-spectrum CBD products may also contain up to 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid in the cannabis plant that produces the ‘high’ feeling in people. However, such a low amount is not strong enough to have significant psychoactive effects.
CBD isolate is a pure form of CBD. It contains no other cannabis plant compounds. It usually comes from hemp plants, which typically contain very low amounts of THC. CBD isolate is a crystal form of CBD, and it is often ground up and sold as a powder. It may also be called CBD crystals.
CBD isolate is a much more refined product and goes through extra processing, all MOi + ME products are made with isolate
What does CBD do
The human body has an active endocannabinoid system (ECS) with receptors. Its main receptors, CB1 and CB2, run throughout our bodies and studies have shown that they are instrumental to the body running smoothly. CB1 receptors are found particularly in the brain and co-ordinate emotions, mood, thinking and memories. CB2 receptors are common in the immune system and affect inflammation and pain.
Our body produces cannabinoids naturally for this system but sometimes doesn’t produce enough and CBD has been shown to be helpful in balancing this. CBD can provide the body with additional cannabinoids to assist the ECS with maintaining the body’s harmony.
Ways to take CBD
How the body absorbs CBD will vary depending on the product you take. Using CBD oil either with a tincture or mist sprays directly under the tongue mean that the CBD will be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Capsules and gummies mean that CBD is absorbed through the stomach, and topical creams and lotions are absorbed through the skin directly where they have been applied.
MOi + ME offers a Mist Spray and various topicals.
When to take CBD
CBD can be used at time of the day, choosing the time you use CBD will depend on what you are using it for. Mornings may help you balance for the day ahead, during the day may help relieve stress building it up and using it in the evening may help relaxation and sleep.
What is the recommended daily dosage of CBD
CBD affects individuals differently depending on several factors including body mass, internal chemistry and existing health conditions. The best way to start using CBD is by taking small amounts and building up to a recommended daily dosage, if required.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends that healthy adults do not take more than 70mg a day of CBD in food supplements and edibles, unless advised otherwise by a doctor. For our Moment Mist, this translates to up to 12 sprays a day. Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dosage
