This CBD FAQ page was created to help new CBD users understand the intention of CBD and put to rest any confusion about using our products. Use this CBD FAQ to help find the answers you have been looking for before you try CBD for the first time.
IS CBD LEGAL?
In The UK and Spain CBD is perfectly legal provided the THC content is below 0.2% like our Pure CBD Full Spectrum oils. Our Broad Spectrum oils are completely THC free thus making them totally legal through-out Europe.
CAN YOU GET HIGH FROM CBD?
No. CBD is 100% non-psychoactive, meaning that it works on the body, not the brain – so cannot get you high. The psychoactive compound in cannabis is THC, which is either absent from commercially available CBD oils or present in such small, legal quantities that the ‘high’ effect doesn’t apply.
CAN I TAKE CBD WITH ME ABROAD?
CBD is legal in Europe and most other parts of the world, but it would be advisable to confirm the legal status in the country you are visiting.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ‘FULL SPECTRUM’ AND ‘BROAD SPECTRUM’?
Our Full Spectrum oils contain all the active compounds found in the cannabis plant, including other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDA and trace amounts of THC terpenes, vitamins and amino acids (in quantities so small they still can’t get you high!) The active compounds found in the cannabis plant work together (like an orchestra) more effectively than on their own. This is known as the Entourage Effect.
Our Broad Spectrum oil is very similar to Full Spectrum except that it does not contain THC. So if you’re in a profession or sport where you may be drug tested, it would be advisable to opt for our Broad Spectrum oil which is totally THC free.

IS CBD ADDICTIVE?
CBD is not addictive, it has no psychoactive effects. CBD may help your feel relaxed and less anxious but will not get you high. The World Health Organization has done a very extensive study on the potential addictiveness of CBD. That study concluded that CBD is non-habit forming and is not addictive.
DOES CBD HAVE SIDE EFFECTS?
From the thousands of clinical trials conducted on CBD, no severe side effects have been recorded. The World Health Organisation reported that CBD is well tolerated, has a good safety profile and doesn’t appear to be a risk for abuse, dependence or other public health related problems. That said, if you are taking regular medication it’s advisable to consult your health care practitioner or doctor. For more information click here.
WHICH CBD DOSAGE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
The correct dosage of CBD depends on various factors (including body weight, type of symptoms). It is generally recommended ‘to start low and go slow,’ increasing gradually until you find a level that works for you.
As a guide, and subject to the severity of your symptoms, we suggest 1-2 mg of CBD per 10lbs (4.5kg) of body weight, taken 2 – 3 times per day after meals.
Our 10ml bottles contain 200 drops and a 10% strength 1000mg bottle has 5 mg in each drop. So for a person of 140lbs (64kg) that would suggest 14–28 mgs per dose, or 3-6 drops.
WHERE IS PURE ORGANIC CBD BASED?
Our production operation is all in Switzerland and we have offices in both the UK and Spain. That way we can serve all our European customers equally and efficiently however the future looks.
