So, What is CBD?

CBD is short for Cannabidiol, which is one of 100+ cannabinoid chemical compounds found in the Cannabis plant. It works naturally in the body to help benefit your system and restore balance (there’s more on this later!)

CBD is the second most abundant cannabinoid in the cannabis plant after tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the special psychoactive ingredient that gets you ‘high’. CBD won’t get you ‘high’ or have any mind-altering effects as it's not psychoactive. All of our products are THC-free and completely safe. That’s our promise to you. 

But, how does CBD work with our bodies?

The human body has many different systems that help us function - the endocannabinoid system is one such system which consists of tiny receptors that play a crucial role in regulating mood, pain and everyday experience.

CBD helps these receptors do what's needed to restore beneficial changes throughout the body. Our CBD oils are the natural choice to take better care of your well being, to feel calm and connected. You can do everything you need to do but feel better doing it. 

How do I take CBD?

CBD Oils should be taken under the tongue and held for approximately 60-90 seconds. And it’s as easy as that!

What dosage of CBD should I take?

Here at Thrive, our CBD tinctures come in 30ml bottles and offer 500mg, 1000mg or 2000 mg of CBD. We recommend that healthy adults start with 15-20mg a day, spread over 1-2 doses. Everyone’s different so you can always work your way up or down until it feels right. It's best to start off with a smaller dose and gradually increase it. As a precaution, The FSA (Food Standards Agency) recommends no more than 70mg per day for a healthy adult.

What are the benefits of CBD?

Initial research suggests that by reacting with the human endocannabinoid system, CBD may help combat pain relief and inflammation, support muscle recovery, and contribute to a sense of calm. This in effect helps you manage sleeplessness, stress and anxiety much better.

This natural plant-based remedy promotes homeostasis (the fancy term for 'balance within the body') encouraging optimal health and wellbeing. CBD is here to make you feel better
