What is CBD is Made From?

Logo Leaf Organics UK CBD Stockport

Cannabidiol or as we know it CBD is made from industrial hemp which is which is part of the cannabis family. 

To be classed as industrial hemp the THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol content, must not be above 0.3% at cultivation. In the U.K. it is even lower, 0.2%.  If the THC content is above the limit the cannabis is classed as Marijuana and is illegal. THC is the bit that gets you high.

The hemp plants are then passed through a C02 extraction to collect all the beneficial Cannabinoids. This removes most of the THC and leaves behind a beautiful golden oil we call CBD. 

For CBD to be legal to sell in the U.K. the THC content in the final product must not be above 1 mg per container. There is only 1 mg of THC per a container in Leaf Organics product range. To put that into perspective, you require around 10 – 20 mg of THC to feel ‘high’.

What does CBD feel like? is a question we often get asked. Leaf Organics CBD does not get you high or make you feel drowsy. many of our customer report a feeling of wellbeing and calmness.
