Why buy CBD oil online at Dr Watson CBD?
As an individual looking to buy the right CBD oil for you, we understand that the options can be overwhelming with hundreds of brands, products, and different strengths of CBD products…How do you tell which one is right for you?
One of the most important things you need to know when buying hemp oil online, is the difference between CBD isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum. Dr Watson CBD oils are broad spectrum: They contain high levels of two fundamentally important cannabinoids CBD and CBG, and zero THC (the illegal one that gets you high).
When it comes to making your decision, we want to help by keeping things simple.
Our CBD oils come in easy to understand strengths based on daily recommended CBD intake. For the average person, our 1000mg CBD oil is perfectly suited to deliver a daily dose of 30mg+ over the period of 4 weeks. Each full pipette delivers 30mg of CBD.
For those who need a stronger dose of CBD, such as high performance athletes, Dr Watson 2000mg hemp oil is designed to deliver a sustained dose of almost 70mg of cannabinoids each day for a month.
We are bringing out a 5000mg super strength broad spectrum hemp oil for sale online at Dr Watson CBD soon. So keep checking in for updates!
CBD has increasingly been in the news across the globe over the past few years. And it's growing in popularity quickly. But CBD use, and CBD itself, are topics that confuse a lot of people. To help clear some of that confusion up we've compiled a list of the answers to the questions people most frequently ask about CBD.
What is CBD?
CBD - scientifically termed cannabidiol - is just one of hundreds of different active chemical compounds that are found in cannabis plants (both marijuana and hemp). The average marijuana plant does contain a considerable amount of it - it's the second most abundant compound found in the plant after THC. The average hemp plant contains around 10%CBD and is generally defined as having less than 0.3% THC, but this differs from country to country.
What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
They are both Cannabis (this is the confusing part). Cannabis is a “genus” (scientific name for a group of species) under a wide family of plants called “Cannabaceae” (nerdy science name). There are several “species” of Cannabis, and Hemp and marijuana are two distinct species !
What is the Difference Between THC and CBD?
This is the issue that confuses so many people. THC (“tetrahydrocannabinol”) is the notorious psychoactive constituent, or active compound, in marijuana that produces a euphoric high. In other words, it's what gets you high if you smoke marijuana. For this reason, it has been a controlled substance for many years in most parts of the world.
To do that it binds with specific receptors in the brain known as CB-1 receptors. These receptors are located across your central nervous system. CBD is a completely different molecule and it cannot bind to CB-1 receptors. Instead, it binds to CB-2 receptors in the tissues and cells located away from the central nervous system.
So, Does CBD Get You High Or Not?
No, CBD does not get you high. In fact, there is ongoing scientific research that indicates that CBD is antagonistic to THC and may prevent it from binding to receptors in the brain and 'block' a high from THC.
Why Do People Take CBD?
Research is ongoing into the use of CBD but the indications are that it may be suitable for use by a wide range of people. Users have found that it is helpful in supporting balance and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We DO NOT make any recommendations or promises that our products can treat, cure or prevent any specific health condition.
Is CBD Natural?
Yes, CBD is a 100% naturally-occurring chemical compound that is derived directly from the cannabis plant. It is not synthetically created.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD 'works' as it binds itself to the CB2 receptors that move throughout the body's
endocannabinoid system. These are found throughout the body, which explains why it has been found helpful with all kinds of health conditions.
Is CBD Legal?
In the UK, CBD products can be purchased legally by people over the age of 18.
Does using CBD have any side effects?
Most research studies have found that CBD is safe with no known side effects, although some users have reported drowsiness, lightheadedness, low blood pressure, and dry mouth.
Is vaping your CBD liquids safe?
Our CBD e liquids are created to the highest possible safety standards and are as safe to vape as any other high quality e liquid.
Will vaping your CBD e liquids cause a positive drug test result?
That is highly unlikely as the THC level, which a drug test is designed to detect, is 0.0% in our products. You can find our lab certificates for our vape products on our certificate page. Also, our extraction partners have the ability to remove THC completely from the raw ingredients we use.
Can I use your e liquids when taking prescription medicines?
If you take prescription medicines we strongly recommend that you discuss using CBD e liquid before you do so.
Is it safe to have your products shipped to me?
If you are over the age of 18 and living in the UK all our products can legally be shipped to you and they will be sent in plain, discreet packaging. Your contact information will also be kept secure, and never shared with third parties without your consent.
What is full spectrum?
Full spectrum means all of the cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant remain in the product. This means it must contain THC, and likely above legal limits in the UK. If a product is advertised as full spectrum, it may be illegal in the UK or not actually full spectrum. Full spectrum products may show up positive and make you fail a drug test
What does broad spectrum hemp oil mean?
Broad spectrum means that most of the cannabinoids extracted from the hemp plant are present in the product, but some have been removed. Dr Watson products are broad spectrum rather than full spectrum because we always make sure our products are legal and within the legal limit for THC content (1mg per product/ container).
What is CBD isolate?
CBD isolate is pure cannabidiol (usually 99%+ if it’s quality product). This is produced over a lengthy extraction process, usually by ethanol, CO2 extraction, and chromatography separation, involving many solvents and machines.
Will CBD help my anxiety?
Our products are not intended to treat, prevent, or cure anything. We also cannot make recommendations about CBD generally and its potential benefits. We would advise you to do your own research.
Will CBD help my insomnia? Will it help me sleep?
Our products are not intended to treat, prevent, or cure any health or medical conditions. Please consult your Doctor if you experience insomnia. Almost one third of adults in the UK are affected by insomnia or less severe sleep conditions. We hope you find a natural remedy to improve your sleep and get you back on a healthy sleep cycle.
Does CBD help with pain?
Our products are not intended to treat, prevent, or cure any health or medical conditions. Marijuana and THC are known to help with pain, but we don’t sell those.
What is CBG?
CBG stands for cannabigerol, the parent molecule from which other cannabinoids (such as CBD, CBC, CBT) are synthesized by the cannabis plant. (The actual parent molecule is CBDa, or cannabigerol acid). CBG is a minor constituent of the cannabis plant but it is the mother of all cannabinoids. 1kg of CBG can cost as much as $22,000. So when we say that our products use hemp extract with between 5 and 15% CBG, you know that you’re getting a high quality high price product. Most brands can’t afford to do what we do, but we will continue to pay to be the best CBD product in the market.
